KENNESAW, Ga., (April 1, 2003) - Digital Projection Inc. (DPI), an Emmyâ Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the launch of the SHOWlite 6000gv and 5000sx+ projection systems. The new SHOWlite series employ high-performance 1.4-inch poly-silicon LCD technology and deliver brightness up to 6,000 ANSI lumens, native resolutions up to SXGA+ and contrast ratio performance of 700:1. The SHOWlite's utilize dual 275W high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps or-as an option-dual 160W HID lamps for ultra-long lamp life of 6,000 hours.
The SHOWlite 6000gv and 5000sx+ feature technologically-advanced DigiScale®-accurate image resizing for faithful reproduction of all sources-and DigiView®-optimized video processing, deinterlacing and 3:2 pulldown-for precise reproduction of video and HD sources. Additionally, DigiWarp® provides user-definable control over all image geometry to accommodate unusual applications and irregular screen surfaces.
The new SHOWlite projectors are perfectly suited for a variety of applications that demand low-cost, high-lumen LCD performance, including corporate boardrooms, training and education, religious and rental and staging.
