Where to find DP's new Products at INFOCOMM:
DP Show Floor Exhibit - Booth 3759: Will prominently feature the new TITAN HD-500 and TITAN sx+ 500, as well as the new LIGHTNING 30isx+. Of course, select projectors from our extensive product line, including iVision, dVision, MERCURY and HIGHlite, will also be on display. Also, be sure to treat yourself to your first view of the brand new dVision 1080p - it will be on display in both our parade of projectors array, as well as in a Home Cinema screening room within our exhibit. As a footnote, 100% of the signal distribution within DP's booth will be executed using DP certified digital signal distribution accessories.
Large Venue Gallery – Room 2: Will showcase our new flagship large venue projector – DP's 22,000 lumen, LIGHTNING 40HD-T, on a 27' HD screen.
DP's Hospitality Suite and All-In Poker Tournament - Meeting Room 209A: Off the show floor, interested dealers can be escorted for a prototype preview of the next product in our TITAN series – the TITAN 1080p. Also, on Wednesday evening after the show, DP will open the doors of this venue for an informal Hospitality and Screening Suite. This convenient location also serves as the venue for our ALL-IN Texas Hold'em Tournament, which will take place during the hospitality hours on Wednesday. Feel free to stop by to enjoy refreshments with us, network with your industry friends, and watch the top DP dealer salespeople from across the US test their Texas Hold'em skills, as they compete for prizes worth more than $50,000!
Texas Instruments' “Big 10 Bash”
After our Hospitality suite wraps up on Wednesday evening, Texas Instruments is throwing their “Big 10 Bash” at the Hard Rock Live, in celebration of DLP's 10-year anniversary. As in past years, DPI is the Projection sponsor for the TI party, so expect to see a variety of our displays serving-up the eye candy prior to and during Pat Benatar's live performance.
Industry Partners at the Show
Of course, DP will also have a variety of projectors in partner exhibits across the show floor, including Stewart Filmscreen, Custom Display Solutions and Vutec.
Everyone at DP looks forward to seeing our friends and customers at the show. Safe travels to all!
TITAN Pro Series Expands
DPI is proud to introduce four new versions of the TITAN Professional series at infoComm 2006: the TITAN sx+ 500, TITAN HD-500, TITAN XG-500, and TITAN HD-250.
Of the new TITAN series projectors being launched at infoComm 2006, the TITAN sx+ 500 features 6,000 ANSI lumens and 1600:1 contrast, the HD-500 and XG-500 feature 4,500 ANSI lumens and 1200:1 contrast, and the home cinema HD-250 features 1,600 ANSI lumens and 4000:1 contrast.
LIGHTNING Pro sx+: Introducing Integrated Electronics & Higher Brightness
A total of three new products are being introduced to the flagship product range, bringing the LIGHTNING SX+ family to a total of 4 units - two featuring integrated electronics and two producing 22,000 lumens of brightness - a 31% increase over the brightness of the original LIGHTNING 30sx+. Major advances in the illumination and cooling systems that DP employs within its LIGHTNING platform allow the new LIGHTNING 40sx+ and 40 i sx+ to reach brightness levels of 22,000 center lumens and 21,000 ANSI lumens, thus joining the recently announced 2K resolution LIGHTNING 40HD-T as the most powerful projectors in the DPI product line, and in their performance class.
DP Introduces 22,000 Lumen LIGHTNING 40HD-T
DPI announced that the introduction of the newest and brightest projector in its large venue Professional Series, the LIGHTNING 40HD-T will occur at infoComm next week. Featuring 22,000 center lumens and 21,000 ANSI lumens, the 2K resolution 40HD-T is identical in size, weight and functional capability to the LIGHTNING Pro 35HD, which is already in widespread use throughout the worldwide staging industry and in major venues around the globe. The increase in ANSI lumens – from 16,000 for the LIGHTNING 35HD, to 21,000 for the 40HD-T - is derived from major advances in the illumination systems and technologies that DP employs within the LIGHTNING 40HD-T.
HIGHlite 14000HD To Be Released at infoComm 2006
The HIGHlite 14000HD is built on the world's lightest and smallest 2K x 1K, 3-chip DLP™ platform, and strikes an impressive balance of high lumen output (14,000 ANSI lumens) and incredibly rich contrast greater than 2000:1. This combination makes the HIGHlite Professional series a popular solution for a diverse range of applications including wide format staging, medium-to-large-venue system installations, scientific visualization, simulation, and premier home entertainment.
