ATLANTA, GA—Digital Projection Inc. (DPI) has introduced an integrated suite of image and lens calculators. With DPI’s Calculator Toolbox, users can quickly calculate essential data such as the image size and throw distance of a projector given a few basic parameters. In addition to the suite’s core functionality are numerous other tools and guides intended to demystify the projector selection process, as well as identify the true long-term cost of ownership of any projection system within any application.
DPI began developing the functionality and architecture of the Calculator Toolbox, as well the supporting databases, in late 2008. What began as a modest browserbased lens calculator has steadily grown, at the behest of DPI’s dealers and industry partners, to encompass all aspects of the projector selection process. In conjunction with the Toolbox release, DPI’s Find the Perfect Projector (FPP) portal also received a complete overhaul.
The Calculator Toolbox portal will also contain previously released projector tools such as DPI’s Screen Brightness and Cost of Ownership calculators. Also included in the Toolbox portal will be DPI’s Cost of Ownership calculator. The Calculator Toolbox operates within all mainstream web browsers.
