LIGHTNING 38-1080p-3D Ultra Contrast (112-912)

Digital Projection International (DPI), Texas Instruments’ first DLP® partner and the original innovator of the 3-chip DLP® projector, proudly introduces the LIGHTNING 38 sx+ 3D. When considered along with their 20,000 ANSI lumen brightness and contrast performance up to 1800:1, the LIGHTNING 38 1080p 3D model is the perfect imaging solutions for the most demanding large screen immersive applications, including: military simulation, scientific visualization, medical, chemical and geological research, product engineering, commercial cinema and theme park attractions.

In addition to the active 3D capability, the LIGHTNING 3D models also include DP’s new FastFrame™ technology, a revolutionary combination of hardware and firmware that vastly reduces the artifacts and image blur typically associated with rapidly moving displayed content. The benefits of FastFrame™ are especially important for simulation environments such as commercial and military flight training, and other applications where maintaining the visual integrity of high-speed imagery is vital.

The LIGHTNING 38 1080p 3D projectors also incorporate DPI’s Hyper-Cooled lamp module, one of our CoolTek™ innovations. Engineered with a proprietary, directional-flow reflector mask and radial heat exchanger, the Hyper-Cooled module dramatically improves projector thermal characteristics and extends reflector life and lumen maintenance. In turn, these operating benefits provide a significant reduction to the long-term cost of ownership, while also enhancing component reliability.

LIGHTNING 38 1080p 3D Pro Series II projectors - ultra-powerful display systems for major 3D events and Immersive large screen applications - bringing the precision of Digital Projection to every venue.
