DPI LAUNCHES NEW 1080p, XGA, AND SXGA+ PROJECTORSSingle-Chip dVision Series Expands Into Six Models
KENNESAW, GA, (January 27, 2005) - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy(r) Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the company's first entry into the native 1080p display market with its single-chip DLP(tm) dVision 1080p projector. In addition to the dVision 1080p, the company also introduced 3 other new single-chip models, including 2 native XGA dVision projectors and a higher brightness version of the current dVision sx+. All four new products will join DP's existing dVision lineup, and will be available in the first quarter of this year.
The new dVision 1080p features the latest .95" DarkChip3(tm) DMD from Texas Instruments, which supports a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. With user-adjustable light output from 500-2500 ANSI lumens and contrast ratio up to 6000:1, the dVision 1080p presents virtually any video, HD or computer source with remarkable resolution and dynamic imaging characteristics. Connectivity to input devices is provided via Digital Projection's VIP 1000, an external video processor featuring the Realta integrated circuit from Silicon Optix. Among other capabilities, the VIP 1000 employs true 1080i to 1080p de-interlacing, HQV video enhancement, dynamic noise reduction, adaptive scaling and 10 bit processing, all tailored to optimize the performance of every source presented to the dVision 1080p display. Six lens options, with an extensive range of motorized horizontal and vertical lens shift, provide the dVision 1080p with unparalleled adaptability for permanent installations.
Along with the dVision 1080p, DPI also introduced three additional new single-chip projectors to the dVision product platform - the dVision XG, 30XG, and dVision 30sx+. With a native resolution of 1024 x 768 and up to 5500 ANSI lumens, the dVision XG and 30XG are suited for use in a range of business, education, entertainment and religious applications. The 1400 x 1050 resolution dVision 30sx+ produces 6500 ANSI lumens, representing a 30% increase in overall brightness from DPI's first generation dVision sx+ display. Its SXGA+ resolution makes the product ideally suited for visualization, scientific, engineering and command and control applications.
"Launched by DP less than a year ago, the dVision HD and dVision sx+ have garnered a notable following of commercial and home cinema customers, who rely on their best in class single-chip performance, stellar brightness, long lamp life and amazing integration capabilities" commented Mike Levi, President of Digital Projection, Inc. "Given the success of our first dVision products, we have worked to expand the series to engage even more applications and end users. The dVision 1080p, dVision XG, 30XG and 30sx+ achieve that objective".
When the six models that now comprise the dVision series are considered along with the company's iVision models, DPI offers an extraordinary array of 15 installation-grade single-chip projectors, as well as eleven powerful 3-chip DLP displays. All of DP's products are suited for the most demanding commercial, scientific, educational and home cinema applications.
