LIGHTNING Reference 1080p-3D (112-912)

Digital Projection International (DPI), Texas Instruments’ first DLP™ partner and the original innovator of the 3-chip DLP™ projector, proudly introduces the flagship of our Reference Series displays, the LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D.

Based on the same rugged, mechanically capable chassis as our highly acclaimed LIGHTNING Pro-Series II commercial products, the new LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D employs the latest in Texas Instruments’ Dark Chip 1080p DLP technology, and is equipped with DPI’s newest imaging innovations, including our exclusive ColorMax calibration system, rendering deeply saturated, color-accurate imagery which is simultaneously true to life and powerfully immersive. When considered along with the 6000-10,000 ANSI lumen brightness and astounding 5000:1 contrast performance, the LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D represents the absolute ultimate in large-scale home entertainment displays – suitable for nearly any venue and any screen size.

In addition to the active 3D capability, the LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D also includes 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 high-speed sports and action footage where maintaining the visual integrity of high-speed imagery is vital.

The LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D projector also incorporates 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.

Other key benefits of the LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D include:
• High Bandwidth input
• Dual Flash Processing™(DFP)
• Projector electronics which provide an interface to drive an infrared transmitter to synchronize switching glasses with active displayed frames.
• FastFrame™ technology
• DP’s NextGen electronics
• Minimal video delay from input to screen 
• Eight user-selectable inputs including HDCP compliant DVI, plus SD/HD-SDI as standard.
• High bandwidth DVI inputs offer Single, Twin, Dual & Dual Twin DVI connectivity.

The LIGHTNING Reference 1080p 3D – the most powerful and intensely accurate immersive 3D display system, exclusively for exceptional large scale imaging. The LIGHTNING Reference 3D display the precision of Digital Projection to your legendary home venue.
