Digital Projection Announces Its First 3-Chip DLP Projector Under $30k
Digital Projection International (DPI) - an Emmy Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems - today announced its first 3-chip DLP projector with a list price under $30,000.
"This new positioning reflects the industry's most outstanding technology and performance value," said Tim J. Butler, director of marketing communications. "We're breaking cost of entry barriers and delivering the precision capabilities of 3-chip DLP displays - digital stability, color accuracy and extreme imaging fidelity - at a cost of ownership that was previously unimaginable."
At $29,995 (without lens), the HIGHlite 4100gv features XGA native resolution (UXGA compatibility), 3500 ANSI lumens, 500:1 on-to-off contrast, and a rugged, yet compact, 95-lb. chassis. DPI's proprietary, high contrast modification and optics can be added to the unit to increase contrast performance to 800:1 (on/off).
This projector will be demonstrated along with several other models in Digital Projection's industry-leading line-up of 3-chip DLP displays at the infoCOMM trade show (June 12-14, 2002, Booth#25055, Las Vegas).
Digital Projection currently manufacturers one of the industry's largest line-ups of projectors based on 3-chip DLPä technology by Texas Instruments. Projectors by DPI can be found in Fortune 1000 boardrooms, church & worship venues, film screening rooms, broadcast sets, command & control facilities, simulation applications, retail outlets, prestigious home theaters, lecture halls and star-studded live events.
