Digital Projection International (DPI), introduced three new LED-based “Lifetime Illumination” DLP projectors at InfoComm last week. DPI’s new dVision 30-1080p LED, dVision 30-WUXGA LED and dVision 35-WQXGA LED displays present three compelling solutions for critical 24/7 projection applications, as well as any application needing long-life projection systems with unmatched color saturation, lumen maintenance and color stability. As DPI’s LED-based displays do not contain traditional lamps, all three dVision series projectors deliver unprecedented long-term cost of ownership benefits including lower overall maintenance and over 100,000 hours of LED illumination life. Combined with the M-Vision Cine LED displays, which DPI launched and commenced shipping in Q4, 2009, Digital Projection offers the most extensive and capable DLP-based LED product line available today.
A combination of consistently stable, long-term light output and supremely low-maintenance illumination systems defines DPI’s new dVision LED displays. All three projectors utilize Texas Instruments’ DarkChip DLP technology, ensuring unmatched black levels and dynamic range. Equally important, the RGB-based LED illumination system eliminates the need for a color wheel to produce primary colors. Instead, red, green and blue LED’s produce primary color illumination, rendering a color gamut and color saturation similar to that of a 3-chip DLP projector. In addition, since there is no spinning color wheel in the system, color wheel artifacts are eliminated and fast-moving content appears remarkably sharp and free of motion smear. These benefits are especially important for applications requiring the display of fast moving content, such as sports events, fast jet simulation and gaming.
The new dVision LED projectors inherit the field-proven reliability and exceptional optical qualities of DPI’s robust dVision chassis. Suitable for both commercial and residential venues, dVision projectors are quiet, elegantly designed and offer a diversity of system capabilities that support nearly any application. Installation flexibility is assured through an extensive array of ultra-accurate optics, which provide throw ratios as short as .75:1 and as long as 6.5:1. Furthermore, the dVision’s quick-change motorized lens mount provides an extensive range of horizontal and vertical lens shift, allowing the projectors to be placed in a wide variety of locations in relation to the screen. Intuitive user controls and comprehensive source compatibility assure all dVision displays are simple to integrate, control and operate.
Chuck Collins, VP of Commercial AV for DPI, remarked, “The time-tested durability and performance of the dVision chassis, combined with the longevity and precise colorimetry of an LED illumination source, means we can now provide a proven solution with the lowest maintenance and long-term cost of ownership for demanding 24-7 and high-use multi-channel applications.”
