Risk and Reward: Digital Projection's InfoComm 2012 New Product Launch and Wrap Up

Digital Projection's InfoComm Recap

2012 marks DP's historic 15 year anniversary, and to honor this milestone, DP completely revamped the physical layout, as well as the philosophy, of how we present our powerful projectors at InfoComm. Our goal at every InfoComm is to help our dealers understand the flexibility and performance of our vast product line.

Digital Projection's InfoComm Reca[

Since almost 90% of our commercial dealers install our displays in venues with ambient light, we decided to present how each of our products perform with plentiful ambient light falling on the screens. Essentially, the opposite approach taken by the more 'cavelike' environments that are typically created by other projector manufacturers on the show floor. This was a risky but worthwhile approach, as our dealers and partners alike were unanimously thrilled with the brightness, color performance and overall image quality of the product line - even when exposed to extreme amounts of tradeshow lighting.

DP's LED Powered LIFETIME ILLUMINATION Projectors Make a Giant Leap in Lumen Performance

DP introduced the revolutionary M-Vision Cine LED and dVision LED projectors back in 2011. By now, most of us are aware of the many performance and cost of ownership benefits that LED illuminated displays offer.

Those attributes include:
• Small form factor
• Extraordinarily wide color gamut – wider than the commonly referenced NTSC color space
• Color saturation equivalent to, or even exceeding, that produced by 3-chip DLP displays
• 60,000+ hour illumination engine life – which we characterize as LIFETIME ILLUMINATION
• Very low maintenance with no lamp replacements via Lifetime Illumination™ projector
• Low power consumption (as low as 350 watts@110V)
• Very low operating temperature
• Extremely quiet operation (as low as 30 dBA)

The only facet of LED illuminated projectors that has challenged audiences accustomed to purely lamp-driven projectors is the relatively low light output spec, as compared to other projection illumination technologies.

After only one year, we are pleased to announce that the constant progression of DP technology and innovation has revealed a significant increase in lumens for a number of our LED illuminated DLP projectors. Specifically, the latest generations of our M-Vision LED and dVision LED projectors boast higher brightness - up to 1,000+ lumens!

West Hollywood Library
Waveguide Consulting Inc.


West Hollywood Libary Relies on Digital Projection

The striking architectural form of the year-old West Hollywood Library (WHL) may have attracted the lion's share of attention initially, but it's the functionality within that has led to the West Hollywood community's widespread embrace of the public building. Located across from the iconic Pacific Design Center, the West Hollywood Library enlists large-screen projection and automation to help create a unified town center for the surrounding community. The 48,000 square foot Library operates primarily as a community amenity, as was the original intention, with a focus on meetings and public forums. However, by combining a flexible, multi-use design approach with advanced technology, the WHL has become a link between the public and private sectors of life in West Hollywood.

West Hollywood Libary Relies on Digital Projection

Designed by Steve Johnson and James Favaro of the Culver City firm Johnson Favaro, the WHL was built by the City of West Hollywood as part of their 25th Anniversary Capital Campaign. This campaign also includes plans to provide new public parking spaces and renovations to public parks. The three-story building, of which the WHL fills the second and third floors, spans roughly 48,000 square feet. Waveguide Consulting Inc., a nationally recognized leader in the integrated communication technology industry, designed and managed the audio, video and communications solutions throughout the WHL.

Intended as an accessible link between the elected civic leaders and community residents, the WHL was designed to serve a myriad of usages. However, it was always a priority that the library would foster public participation in community forums, as well as host and broadcast city council meetings. Additionally, the WHL contains a television broadcast center that enables events at the library and the adjacent West Hollywood Park to be broadcast over the internet and through the community cable television network. Thanks to this new capability, the city has seen a surge in community forum participation from the community as a whole.

West Hollywood Libary Relies on Digital Projection

This multi-purpose directive permeates all aspects of the WHL, but nowhere more so than the city council meeting venue that converts to a public meeting room. Knowing that flexibility was the key to this high-use room, Waveguide successfully created a solution whereby both private and public functions benefit from impactful, large-scale imagery. Two of Digital Projection International's high-brightness TITAN 1080p precision projectors serve dedicated applications. The first TITAN displays critical council meeting content on a 10' x 17.8' Draper screen, acting as an easily viewable point of reference for each meeting. A second TITAN projector delivers entertainment-oriented content, as well as public forum materials, in conjunction with a 9' x 16' dropdown screen. Though not intended solely as a dedicated viewing room, the space has hosted numerous film festivals and public screenings due to the image quality and controlled lighting in the venue.

Tech Tip

Selecting the Proper Screen Material for Your Application


Have you ever used a screen material other than white for a projection application? If so, what color? Light gray, dark gray, or even black? What effect does screen color have on your projected image? What about the effect of the screen surface and material from which the screen is made?

To solve these questions, our Application Support team projected video in an ambient lit room onto a screen that was white on one side and gray on the other (see figure below).
Digital Projection Tech Tip
The left side of the screen is matte white while the right side of the screen is a dark shade of gray. In this ambient lit environment, the gray screen material produced a more vivid image. The gray side of the screen uses a material with angular reflective properties (see description below). The fact that the material is gray helps to preserve black level, even in the presence of ambient light. This increases the perceived contrast of the image, making it look as if it has more detail and resolution than the white section of the screen, which appears more washed out. Screen selection plays an important role in how you design for a projection application, so let's take a closer look at these material types.
