New Product Update from Digital Projection

New Product Roundup from Digital Projection

2011 has been an incredible year of growth for DP, from the huge headquarters expansion to the many new faces joining our team. From a products perspective, 2011 has seen an unequaled expanse of new models, as well as new capabilities within existing product lines.

With this in mind, we thought we'd put together a quick overview of the newest products and services launched this year, as well as key details within each one:

3 Year Warranty on ALL Products- At InfoComm '11, DP announced an unprecedented update to its product line, which will benefit every DPI customer worldwide. Due to the proven reliability and long-term performance of our precision displays, DP has enhanced its product warranty to provide a full 3 years of parts and labor coverage for projectors and accessories employed in standard use applications.

TITAN Quad displays – (sx+, 1080p, WUXGA) – Also at InfoComm '11, DP announced the complete reinterpretation of the advanced 3-chip display with the new, 16,000 lumen TITAN Quad product line. Incredibly compact for its lumen performance, the TITAN Quad platform incorporates DP's active 3D connectivity, advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, a wide variety of native resolutions, and a host of professional features to suit almost any commercial or staging application imaginable.

Commercial AV Factory Rep Training Event

Commercial AV Factory Rep Training Event

This month Digital Projection held its first Commercial AV Manufacturer Rep Factory Training course since constructing our brand new training facility. The event included reps from all regions of the United States and Canada. "It was great to reveal our new facility to our reps and get their input as we move forward to create a new best in industry training program for our dealers," said Ken Eagle, DP's Manager of Education and Training.

Commercial AV Factory Rep Training Event
Commercial AV reps had the opportunity to tour DP's new facility, review the latest additions to our product line, attend Projection Technology Training in our new training room and work with projectors in our calibration lab. To ensure that the event was truly effective in terms of education, the attendees were given a real-time test of skills.

Click here to see a video recap of the CAV Rep training event.

CAV reps visited a dedicated demo room where, unbeknownst to them, an assortment of misaligned projectors was waiting. With the assistance of a few DP technical personnel, DP's CAV reps moved from station to station, learning the proper methods to align specific models from DP's product line. The event's also included a high energy socal outing, as the Reps and DP team members visited Andretti Indoor Karting & Games to race high-speed "super karts."

Commercial AV Factory Rep Training Event
Additional training classes are scheduled in our new training center later this year through November and December. Training classes will include everything from product training to designing warp and blend applications to ISF certification and more. Be sure to get on our email distribution list for monthly updates by sending a request to keagle@digitalprojection.com.

DP is Growing…Again!

You've likely noticed the many new DP Team members we've added and announced in previous newsletters. DP's steady growth continues, and we'd like to introduce a few new welcome additions to the team.

DP is Growing…Again!
Noel McCoy joins DP as warehouse manager, having managed warehouse and distribution center operations for numerous manufacturers in Georgia. "Noel brings a deep level of focus and organization to the extensive new warehouse facility, and he's a great addition to the team," said Mike Akridge, vp of operations for DP.

Also new to the DP team is Dana Forehand, joining the Marketing and Communications department as graphic designer. Dana brings experience on both design and communications fronts to the team, with a degree in graphic design and Masters in Communication & Information Management. Michael Bridwell, director of marketing for DP, commented, "I couldn't be happier with the contributions that Dana has already made to the team. We've only begun to apply Dana's obvious talents to our many needs as a company, and I think her contribution will soon be obvious."

Finally, Brian Pahlas has joined DP's application support group as our newest Applications Engineer. Although Brian is new to DP, he is not new to projection. In fact, Brian comes to DP with 14 years of technical experience, focused on the service and application of projectors in a diversity of markets and systems. Like many members of our team, Brian is already a projection veteran, with skills and knowledge that will help us to provide timely solutions for all of our customers. Brian will work alongside Mark Stephens and Ken Eagle, as our applications team expands the support services, training and project resources we offer. Given his experience, we expect Brian will become an expert in the nuances of the DP product line very quickly.

Please help us welcome Noel, Dana and Brian as you speak to them in your daily exchanges with DP's headquarters. We're honored to have them on our team!

Tech Tip

Within DP's Product Line: High Brightness vs. High Contrast Projectors – an Overview


What is a High Brightness Projector?
A High Brightness projector is DP's standard configuration of the projector when it is built. There is no aperture installed in the light path within the projector's optics, or within the lens.

Where do you use High Brightness Projectors?
A major perk to a High Brightness projector is that it can be used in most applications, and delivers maximum lumens to tackle larger screens or venues with ambient light. Here are a few recommendations on appropriate uses for a High Brightness projector:
  • Applications with ambient light
  • Applications with larger screens sizes, where a lower lumen projector will not provide adequate screen brightness
  • Applications that demand specific screen brightness levels to be achieved
      Note: Screen brightness is determined by size of the image, gain of the screen surface and light output of the
      projector. Throw distance and lens throw ratio do not determine brightness

  • Applications with extreme screen sizes or large audiences - true large venue
  • Conference rooms and residential media rooms – most of these venues include some level of ambient light
