Single-Chip ”Vision” Series Now Available In Latest Resolution

KENNESAW, GA (May 28, 2008) - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems, announced the addition of 1920 x 1200 resolution models to its iVision 30 and dVision 30 series line-ups. The new WUXGA native resolution displays present a 16:10 aspect ratio – a format that is becoming widespread in high-resolution desktop and notebook computer displays. The WUXGA format is also capable of displaying full 1080p video with no scaling required.

The new iVision 30-WUXGA features the latest DarkChip™ DMD technology from Texas Instruments, and supports a native resolution of 1920 x 1200. Weighing only 6.5 lbs and incorporating broadly capable electronics, the iVision 30-WUXGA is engineered for simple integration and serves as a powerful but affordable solution for a variety of commercial applications. The iVision 30 series utilizes a 300W UHP lamp to deliver up to 3100 ANSI lumens and 4000:1 contrast in the WUXGA configuration. Introduced last year, the newest electronics incorporated within the iVision and dVision series include DP’s extraordinary ColorMax™ calibration technology, HDCP compliant HDMI and DVI inputs, as well as a variety of analog video connections.

Digital Projection’s dual-lamp dVision 30 series also gained the new resolution platform, offering 4300 ANSI lumens and up to 7500:1 contrast. Installation of the dVision 30-WUXGA is extremely flexible due to a selection of six high quality lenses covering a throw distance range from .75:1 up to 6.5:1. The class-leading lens shift capabilities of the dVision 30-WUXGA projectors offers up to 55% vertical shift and 45% horizontal shift, further improving the application versatility of the compact series.

According to Mike Levi, president of DPI: “WUXGA displays are a vital next step as we observe the expanding use of computers as tools for serving high resolution video and data content across a variety of aspect ratios. WUXGA’s 16 x 10 native aspect ratio is an almost perfect meeting place for 1920 x 1080 and 1600 x 1200 sources to co-exist, as both can be displayed at their full native resolution, but with minimized un-used display area.” Levi continued, “We observe commercial customers in certain vertical markets seriously considering WUXGA as the right platform for their next projector purchases, so we are very pleased to be presenting two powerful, efficient and responsible solutions that support those needs.“

When comparing the extensive resolution options and custom color wheel configurations available, DPI offers an extraordinary array of nearly 50 installation-grade single-chip projectors, as well as 17 powerful 3-chip DLP® displays. DP recently launched their QuickShip program, assuring their most popular models are generally in stock and available to ship within days. The company will exhibit their full line of single-chip and 3-chip DLP® displays in booth N6340 at infoComm in Las Vegas next month.
