Digital Projection's dVision 35-WQXGA
4,096,000 Pixels From a Single Projector... Really!

In the coming weeks, Digital Projection will update our product lineup to include an exciting new projector – a display that boasts the highest resolution of any DLP-based product available anywhere today. We are extremely pleased to introduce the dVision 35-WQXGA.

WQXGA is the nomenclature that represents 2560 x 1600 pixels – nearly twice the resolution of a 1080p projector, and all 4,096,000 of those pixels will soon be deployed in our popular and powerful dVision platform.

Digital Projection's Fusion Platform
DP Introduces FUSION MD, FUSION 3D & FUSION NET

Near Zero-Latency Warp, Blend and Network Control Solutions

In our newsletter last month, we highlighted the advanced scaling, warp and blend capabilities of DP’s new VIP 3000. With the highest quality scaling and image zoom and pan, the VIP 3000 is a great solution for warp and blend applications where one source signal is to be spread across multiple projectors.

High quality signal resizing typically brings a small penalty of video signal latency, and that is also the case with the VIP 3000. Depending on the resolution of the native source, as well as the amount of resizing required, the video latency introduced by the VIP 3000 can be between 3-7 frames. Since delaying audio to match video is easily accomplished, video latency does not present a problem for the vast majority of applications. However, for real-time applications, such as IMAG and live televised events, where live presenters and the projected images may be visible at the same time, or for simulation, where on-screen imagery must immediately respond to trainee input, video latency must be as close to zero as possible.

Digital Projection's Fusion Platform

With the latency concern in mind, DP is proud to announce the Fusion platform. DP’s FUSION MD and FUSION 3D processors were created to specifically provide the most advanced multi channel warp and blend for these critical real-time applications. The advanced architecture of the FUSION processors results in video latency that equates to just a few lines of a single video frame - basically, near-zero latency. Considering the precise warp and blend being performed, the transparency of the system is nothing short of amazing.

Wiring a Venue for 3D

It’s time once again to ask that age old question: “How do I plan for the future without a Crystal Ball?” Most everyone has been teased with quality 3D by means of the runaway 3D hit Avatar, and some have seen killer demonstrations of 3D on flat panels or via the state-of-the-art performance of DP’s TITAN 1080p 3D, but how do we prepare our clients for the future of 3D? More importantly, how do we pre-wire current and future projects to ensure our installations are fully 3D capable? As always, the best way to prepare for the future is to learn from the past and research the present.

Digital Projection's New M-Vision HB
Coming Soon… A New High-Brightness M-Vision

DP’s affordable and efficient M-Vision 260 will soon get a face lift. The current high brightness model will take on a similar appearance to its sibling, the M-Vision Cine LED.

Adorned with a tasteful faux carbon fiber top and sporting rounded edges, the entire M-Vision line will now resemble the “jewel box” design unveiled at last year’s CEDIA Expo. Lens position will change as well, as the new M-Vision 260’s lens will be flush to the front bezel, exactly the same as the current M-Vision LED projector.

To reflect this new design, the name will change slightly to the M-Vision Cine 260 HB. The HB extension reflects that the projector is optimized for brightness. Development is also underway on an HC version which utilizes the same electronics and cabinet design, but is optimized for maximum contrast. Look for the new cabinet design and both the M-Vision Cine 260 and M-Vision Cine 260 HB to be available in the May timeframe.

Digital Projection's ISE Dome
39’ Multi-Projector Dome Steals the Show at ISE

Digital Projection International (DPI) enlisted a 360 degree blended dome, a glasses-free auto-stereoscopic 3D panel and more at the recent Integrated Systems Europe 2010 in Amsterdam. With one of the busiest and most frequently referenced booths at ISE, DPI’s precision displays demonstrated first-hand why the company is the only Emmy award-winning projector manufacturer. Such a distinction merits a special exhibit, and DPI delivered with new product launches, new technological advances and compelling application solutions.

Digital Projection's ISE Dome
Working in conjunction with industry partners HoloVis International and 7th Sense, Digital Projection transformed a typical exhibition space into an extraordinary 360-degree multi-projector dome. Over 39’ in diameter and almost 20’ tall, the dome’s interior was illuminated with immersive visualization footage by way of six TITAN 1080p Dual 3D projectors. In total, the projectors presented approximately 12 million-pixels of seamless imagery onto the 360-degree dome.

Pro Football Hall of Fame


Pro Football Hall of Fame Uses Digital Projection

The Pro Football Hall Of Fame’s GameDay Stadium Theater recently received a major AV overhaul featuring two Digital Projection large-venue projectors. Displaying high-intensity footage shot by NFL Films of Mount Laurel, NJ, the GameDay Theater utilizes two distinct Digital Projection projectors. A 20,000 lumen LIGHTNING 40-1080p display, one of the most efficient large-venue projectors in the AV industry, illuminates the main theater from a dedicated projection booth.

The Pro Football Hall Of Fame also enlists Digital Projection’s dVision 30-1080p projector in an interactive section of the venue.

Chuck Chiles, RBDG Project Manager, commented, “When the Pro Football Hall of Fame asked RBDG to upgrade their GameDay Theater from a 35mm film chain to high resolution video, we called on Digital Projection for the hardware. The results: excellent reliability, great service and stunning images.”

DP’s Top Seven Tech Tips


You can learn a lot from a Digital Projection Monthly Newsletter. DP is proud to be regarded as experts in the field of precision visual displays, and we strive to “pay it forward” in every way we can. For instance, each month in the DP newsletter we pass along a tech tip on a topic that our Application Support Engineers tell us is currently being raised by our customers.

Over the past several years, our experts have provided a bevy of information on topics such as how to calculate the long-term cost of ownership of any projector, how to correctly utilize lens shift, and even future tech topics such as 3D and LED-related articles. As a matter of fact, we were talking 3D before 3D was in any way mainstream.

Below is a list of our seven most popular Tech Tips. Why seven? Based on the application support conversations we have every day, we are confident that at least one of these “top seven tips” presents information that most of our customers will find helpful.
