The SXGA+ native resolution LIGHTNING 30sx+ delivers more than 16,000 ANSI lumens (18,000 center lumens) and 1600:1 full-field contrast through Texas Instruments new Dark Chip II DMDs. Additionally, the new 30sx+ is, according to DPI, the most compact product in its performance classjust 42-inches long. Its also the brightest 3-chip DLP projector for its weight (less than 275 pounds, including lens).
For the rental and staging community and prestigious large venues, the new LIGHTNING 30sx+ is an incomparable display solution, said Mike Levi, president of Digital Projection, Inc. At 1400 x 1050 pixels, its native 3x4 aspect ratio delivers precise imaging accuracy, ultra-high brightness and high contrast. As the newest product in our Professional Series lineup, class-leading efficiency in an easy-to-rig, mechanically adept chassis is guaranteed.
The new LIGHTNING 30sx+ shares the same operational features and exclusive design elements as DPIs LIGHTNING 35HD. The 30sx+ can support every large-venue and critical imaging application through its modular electronics design, which enables virtually limitless input capabilities, simplified system wiring and advanced options such as soft-edge blend,, geometric image warp and seamless switching.
When paired with Digital Projections rack mountable Multi-Media Switcher 1000 (MMS 1000), the projector displays any analog component, digital video, HD or DVI source. The connection between the projector and the MMS 1000 is DPIs DigiLink, a single-wire, ultra-high bandwidth fiber-optic solution. DigiLink supports loss-free signal runs up to 1,000 meters that are impervious to electromagnetic and radiofrequency interference.
The LIGHTNING 30sx+ is ready to rig or stack right out of its transit case, eliminating the need for additional rigging hardware or a flying cage. The projector has three integrated chassis-leveling jack points, which enable users to quickly optimize projector pitch and roll to the exact application requirements a critical feature for simplifying the alignment process when stacking or edge-matching multiple projectors.
