DPI INTRODUCES NEXT GENERATION iVISION PROJECTORSiVision 20 Series Features DarkChip3(TM) DMD and Lens Shift Capability
KENNESAW, GA, (September 6, 2005) - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy(R) Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the addition of the iVision 20 series to their array of compact single-chip DLP projectors. As the smallest and lightest of DP's precision displays, the 6-lb. iVision 20 projectors feature the latest DC3 DMD technology from Texas Instruments. The units also include vertical lens shift capability, a feature previously available only in larger, more expensive models.
Similar to the original iVision series, the iVision 20 projectors are available with either HD2+ or SX+ DMD's, offering class-leading native resolution for DMD-based 4X3 and 16X9 formats. Among the new features of the iVision 20 series is an on-axis optical design, supported by a geometrically precise 1.85-2.4:1 zoom lens (1.7-2.2:1 on sx+). When combined with the vertical lens shift capability - more than a full frame of shift range - the system delivers maximum installation flexibility and optical control. Standard inputs include DVI, Component, RGB, Composite, and S-Video.
The iVision 20sx+ renders a powerful 2,500 ANSI lumens and 2500:1 contrast while the iVision 20HD delivers 1,200 ANSI lumens and rich 4000:1 contrast. Lamp output is adjustable, creating the possibility to extend lamp life up to 4000 hours. Based on the familiar and intuitive user interface of the original iVision series, the iVision 20 is positioned to serve a diverse range of customers and applications including:
* Dramatic home entertainment
* Digital media and advertising
* Corporate boardrooms and teleconferencing suites
* Training and education
* Retail and entertainment
* Religious venues / houses of worship
* Casinos and hospitality
* Military simulation / command and control
* Process control
* Immersive visualization
George Walter, DP's home cinema market manager explained, "The new iVision 20 series offers great performance and user benefits in a very compact and highly flexible package. The units combine the imaging quality of high performance single chip projectors with some of the most important integration capabilities of our powerful 3-chip displays, all at an entry level price."
Digital Projection will launch the new iVision 20 series at the CEDIA expo in Indianapolis, September 9-12. List pricing will be announced at the show. The first 20 series projectors will commence shipping in early 2006.
