DIGITAL PROJECTION INTRODUCES NEW IVISION SX+ 1400 X 1050 NATIVE RESOLUTION SINGLE-CHIP DLP(tm) PROJECTORS
KENNESAW, Ga., (June 28, 2004) - Digital Projection Inc. (DPI), an Emmy* Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the launch of two new 1400 x 1050 native resolution single-chip DLP(tm) iVision series projectors, the iVision sx+ and iVision sx+ W.
Weighing just seven pounds, DPI's new iVision sx+ series projectors deliver brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens and 2500:1 contrast through Texas Instruments' new DarkChip 2(tm) SXGA+ resolution DMD's. The iVision sx+ comes standard with a 1.7-2.2:1 zoom lens, and the sx+-W is outfitted with a 1.0:1 fixed, wide-angle lens.
"The new iVision SXGA+ native resolution projectors provide an incredible combination of brightness, clarity and contrast, not to mention comprehensive connectivity and built-in networking capabilities," said Mike Levi, president of Digital Projection, Inc. "You simply won't find more capable single-chip DLP(tm) projector than these iVisions."
Because of their high resolution, contrast and brightness relative to size and weight, the iVision sx+ and sx+ W are ideal for small-to-medium venue applications that benefit from such performance capabilities. Ultra-accurate image geometry is achieved through second-generation optics, rendering the new iVisions perfectly suited for multi-unit blended-array applications, scientific visualization and simulation. Ultra-long lamp-life-up to 4,000 hours-supports the projectors' use for public displays, small-venue rental and staging, Worship, and a host of applications in education and corporate environments. DPI introduced the new iVision SXGA+ resolution projectors at InfoComm 2004, which was recently held in Atlanta, Georgia.
The projectors will begin shipping in Q3 2004.
