DP Announces Exclusive ColorMaxTM Technology
Digital Projection is proud to announce significant hardware and software upgrades to 85% of our product line, arming users with powerful controls over color calibration and color gamut. A derivative of the digital cinema technology we helped pioneer over the past decade, ColorMaxTM technology delivers a new level of precision and image quality to large screen DLP® projection.
For all single-chip projectors in DP ’s Vision Series lineup, ColorMaxTM leverages the benefits of Brilliant ColorTM technology from Texas Instruments. Brilliant ColorTM enables increased projector brightness and improved color saturation by expanding the color gamut through the addition of cyan, magenta, and yellow color points.
infoComm 2007 Wrap-Up
Digital Projection launched a variety of exciting new DLP® displays at infoComm 2007. DP’s new Pro Series II projectors were immersive on our large screens with their bright and accurately rendered images. All of Digital Projection's single-chip products have been upgraded to include impressive new ColorMaxTM capabilities. New product information can be found in the table below.
Products Introduced At infoComm 2007
|Single-Chip DLP® Vision Series
All of DP's single-chip displays are now enabled with Texas Instruments' Brilliant Color™technology. DP’s ColorMax technology provides even more opportunities to fine tune projector performance and calibration. Multiple factory installed color wheel sets are available for the iVision & dVision products, allowing the user to select the projector / color wheel combination that provides the best balance of lumens and color depth for their application.
|High-brightness TITAN 600 Series
Weighing in at just 68 lbs., the dual-lamp TITAN 600 series projectors employ the latest in Texas Instruments' 720p, SXGA+ or 1080p dark metal, 3-chip DLP™ technology to deliver up to 11,000 lumens and 2000:1 contrast. Compact, robustly built and ultra-quiet for their performance class, TITANs are unmatched solutions for staging, command and control, visualization, business, and educational venues.
|LIGHTNING 1080p Series
Based on the same rugged, mechanically capable chassis as the LIGHTNING 35HD, these new Pro Series II projectors employ the latest in dark metal, 3-chip DLP™ technology, and include DPI's exceptional RapidRig staging and stacking hardware with integrated pitch, roll and yaw adjustments. When considered along with their 15,000-20,000 ANSI lumen brightness and 2000:1 contrast performance, the 30-1080p and 40-1080p are ideally suited for the most challenging staging and large-venue permanent installations in the world.

NEW! iVision 30-1080p: Compact & Powerful
At only 3.5” tall and 11” wide, the iVision 30-1080p delivers up to 2,700 ANSI lumens through the use of a high-performance 300-watt UHP lamp. The projector is encased within a magnesium cabinet to optimize thermal efficiency, thus allowing for much higher lumen output than other projectors of similar size. Enabled with Brilliant ColorTM, the iVision 30-1080p can be ordered with any of three specialized color wheels - enhancing brightness, color or contrast. Depending on the color wheel selected, the iVision 30-1080p can produce contrast ratios up to 5000:1. Inputs include HDMI (1.3), DVI, component, composite, s-video and analog RGB.
Welcome To CEDIA 2007!
Digital Projection is preparing an incredible display of full 1080p imagery for CEDIA 2007 (booth #240). Building on our multi-screen configuration from last year, we are raising the bar for presentation and style – using elements of projection technology never before shown on the CEDIA show floor.
Now that DP has a complete range of 1080p projectors in every size and price point, you can expect to see a breathtaking presentation of video and graphics from our exclusive single-chip and 3-chip DLP® home cinema displays.
New for CEDIA 2007, DP will introduce our expanded Reference Series of ultimate home cinema products. This elite class of projectors comprises the pinnacle display from each TITAN, HIGHlite and LIGHTNING series. At the other end of the spectrum, we will also show the smallest of our new 1080p projectors – the iVision 30-1080p. The incredible resolution, small footprint and ease of integration position the iVision 30-1080p as an amazing solution for venues where simplicity and imaging quality are paramount.
Also, as announced earlier in the year, this will be the first opportunity for many dealers to experience DP’s new ColorMaxTM technology, now integrated into all of our displays. Through a combination of Brilliant ColorTM technology, electronics processing, 7-point colorimetry and advanced calibration techniques, ColorMaxTM renders revolutionary enhancements to image fidelity and color accuracy.
Finally, with the incredible surge in 1080p content and rising demand for anamorphic 2.35:1 displays, DP will showcase 3 of our home cinema projectors equipped with our exclusive TheaterScope Premier System.
For yet another opportunity to view DP’s precision displays in action, look for our projectors in the Stewart Filmscreen exhibit and at the Silicon Optix party at CEDIA.We look forward to seeing you at the show!
