More options for high-brightness projectors.
The new Lightning 45-1080p (30,000 ANSI lumens and 2000:1 contrast ratio) projector from Digital Projection International (DPI) includes DPI's advanced Intelligent Lens Memory (ILM), which allows the projector to store specific lens zoom, shift, and focus values to up to 10 preset positions. The Lightning 45-1080p incorporates DPI's CoolTek engineering, which ensures the projector delivers the highest lumen performance with the lowest power consumption, thermal (BTU), and noise level (dBA) output.
In addition to its 3-chip 3D offerings, DPI is offering two active 3D projectors in its single-chip projector lineup: the iVision sx+ 3D, which is equipped with a standard zoom lens, and the iVision sx+ W-3D, which is equipped with a short-throw-ratio fixed lens. At the 3-chip level, DPI's new Titan 3D product range is composed of eight distinct projectors (including the CEDIA award-winning TITAN 1080p Dual 3D) featuring Texas Instruments' 3-chip DLP technology with fast-transit pixels for smooth grayscale and improved contrast. The Titan 3D product line offers brightness up to 9000 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio up to a spectacular 5000:1. For active 3D applications demanding the highest lumen performance, DPI's new Lightning 3D offers the same source compatibility and imaging capabilities as the Titans, while producing up to 21,000 ANSI lumens and 4000:1 contrast.
Dukane's all new ImagePro 8950P large venue LCD projector uses three 1.3in. polysilicon inorganic TFTs, puts out 7500 lumens through selectable lenses, and features networkable control capabilities. With a 2500:1 contrast ratio, 10-bit full digital video processing, and a filter life of 10,000 hours, the 8950P gives you XGA resolution (1024x768), ultrawide-range lens shift (2.7 screens vertical and 2.2 screens horizontal), and six bayonet-style lens options.
In addition, Dukane's ImagePro 8952P is a 7000-lumens model with long-life inorganic LCD optics, a mechanical shutter for Blank mode, SXGA (1400x1080) resolution, highly versatile connectivity, and powered lens shift and powered focusing. Finally, the company's ImagePro 8951P brings most of the same features with a 6500 lumens output.
The newest large venue projector that Epson announced this year at InfoComm, the PowerLite Pro Z8000WUNL, is the company's flagship multimedia projector in the PowerLite Pro line designed for large venues. The PowerLite Pro Z8000WUNL is the first high- definition, high-brightness (6000 lumens) WUXGA projector (1920x1200 native resolution) to use Epson's cost-efficient 3LCD technology. The Z8000WUNL offers 5000:1 contrast ratio, an innovative liquid-cooling system, durable optical panels, and a dual-lamp design. This new model features Epson's high-aperture 3-chip 3LCD technology for more intense and sharper images, and it features a centered lens design for easy installation. It can be installed ±30 degrees off-axis horizontally and ±10 degrees off-axis vertically.
