New TransVision ® 3 Enhanced Digital Projection System Adds DarkChip3 ® DLP Chip and Proprietary Color Wheel

Press Release  |  Dec 30, 2004
LAS VEGAS – December 30, 2004: DWIN Electronics, Inc. will introduce the Transvision® 3E, an enhanced new version of its 720p high definition front video projector system featuring DarkChip3 DLP® technology from Texas Instruments and a proprietary new color wheel.

Suggested retail value for the system is $11,950. The system will be available in February 2005. DWIN Electronics will exhibit at CES 2005, Booth 20656 – South Hall 1 of the LVCC.

The new projector creates images with higher on-screen contrast and improved shadow detail in dark scenes due to increased grey scale resolution and expanded color bandwidth. Richer, more vibrant color images are created by DWIN's proprietary new color wheel, with dichroic filters specially tuned to achieve an optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy.

Exceptional movie theater realism is achieved with DWIN's acclaimed video signal processing. Deep black levels and natural color reproduction are secured with precision gray scale settings and gamma selections; motion artifacts are reduced with Adaptive Film Mode processing; and picture depth is increased with Signal Dynamic Range expansion.

The new digital projection system includes a native-rate outboard digital video processor for true custom installation flexibility and system convenience. The processor is virtually future proof, accepting 10 video inputs including 2 DVI-HDCP, 2 RGB, 2 S-video 2 component, and 2 composite. Six inputs are high definition capable. Each input (including DVI-HDCP) allows full and independent user control for brightness, contrast, color saturation, tint, gamma and sharpness. All settings are automatically saved and recalled for each input and video type.

Only a single, all-digital video cable is required to connect the processor to the projector. As a result, awkward video source cables remain hidden with video gear, so projector installation is faster and system control is more convenient.

The system has intuitive, home-theater style menus accessible via an eight-device preprogrammed/learning IR/RF remote with back- lit keypad to control multiple home theater video and audio devices. For custom installations, DWIN provides both discrete IR and RS-232 commands that allow seamless integration with home automation systems. Two programmable 12V triggers are also available for a projector screen control or other home theater accessories.

Founded in 1985, DWIN Electronics, Inc. specializes in the design and manufacturing of high performance consumer and professional video projectors, digital video processors and displays.
