DP's US Headquarters Expansion
DP’s Expansion is Underway!

Digital Projection International (DPI) was founded with one key objective; to innovate the projection technology of the future in order to advance the capabilities of large-screen displays. Since our company first took on this challenge, we have worked closely with our customers to assure our products create the most precise imagery possible within every application.

From our strategic partnership with Texas Instruments which led to refinement of the Digital Micromirror Device™ for projection applications and the world’s first 3-chip DLP projector, to receiving the only Emmy Awards ever awarded to a projector manufacturer, we’ve seen many successes. DPI’s progress over the years is proof that equal parts hard work and product knowledge can lead to great things.

2011 marks DPI’s 15th anniversary, and what a monumental milestone it is. With so many years of pragmatic growth and a sound corporate structure, the time is right for DPI to extend our product offerings and bring our precision displays to select new markets.

What does this mean for our current dealers, Reps and enthusiasts?

DP's Most Efficient Projector
Introducing...the Most Efficient 3-Chip Display Ever - Built by DP

The New TITAN sx+ 350 - the Pinnacle of 3-chip Efficiency and Flexibility

DP’s November 15th Commercial AV pricing introduced an all new TITAN product that is worthy of a spotlight. We are proud to introduce the TITAN sx+ 350 - the most efficient 3-chip display in our product line, and perhaps in the world.

The sx+ 350 is built on our rugged and well-proven TITAN 700 series, with one exception – it only employs one lamp. Coupled to the light engine via a straight path optical assembly, that single-lamp makes a powerful statement, producing 6000 ANSI lumens from just 350 watts. That calculates to a remarkable 17+ lumens per lamp watt, making the TITAN sx+ 350 the most efficient 3-chip DLP projector DP has ever built, and to our knowledge, the most efficient in the world.

Producing higher lumens from lower wattage lamps creates important benefits for applications and end users. In particular, lower wattage lamps:
  •   Deliver longer lamp life
  •   Are generally less expensive
  •   Consume less energy
  •   Produce less heat, thus putting less burden on the venue HVAC system
  •   Require less cooling, thus reducing projector fan noise
  •   Reduce operational costs

From a cost of ownership perspective, the TITAN sx+ 350 is the most cost effective 3-chip DLP projector DP has ever produced. Furthermore, from a fan noise perspective, it is virtually invisible!

The new 350 series offers other important benefits as well. As is the case with our TITAN 700 series, DP’s innovative optical and cooling designs enable the products to be installed in any mechanical orientation required.

End-users can shoot a TITAN 350 (or a 700) straight at the screen (landscape), put it on its side (portrait), point it straight up, straight down, or anywhere in between, without sacrificing any lumens or lamp life. Quite simply, the TITAN sx+ 350 is happy to run in any orientation, just like the 700. This extraordinary adaptability allows DP customers to design display solutions that serve their needs, rather than a projector’s operational limitations.

The TITAN sx+ 350 is already included on our November 15th, 2010 Commercial AV pricing, and will commence shipping in December. The highly efficient and adaptable 350 platform will quickly expand to include another brand new model – the TITAN 1080p 350 - in Q1, 2011.

Church Production Magazine Reviews the New $5,995 E-Vision Projector
Church Production Magazine Reviews the New $5,995 E-Vision Projector

"...the most versatile single-chip DLP unit I have seen to date."

Buzz is building around our recently unveiled E-Vision WXGA-600 projector. Featuring broad installation flexibility, 6,000 lumens of ultra-bright imaging performance and numerous lens options, the E-Vision has recently been adopted by both the corporate and church markets for exceptional performance and value.

Kris Rinas, Director of Video Systems for Grace Community Church, conducted the peer review for Church Production magazine's November/December issue, and commented, "This new DPI unit has a color correction menu typically reserved for projectors costing five times as much."

Many thanks to Kris and CP magazine for running the E-Vision through its paces. Read the full review by clicking here.

Visit our Facebook page to see more photos from DP's WFX exhibit.

DP and industry partner DNP Screens recently unveiled cutting-edge large-screen imagery solutions at the Worship Facilities Conference & Expo (WFX) in Atlanta, Georgia (what were the dates?). Drawing over 3,000 members of the house of worship community this year alone, WFX is the major event where church leadership teams connect with tools and technology to create meaningful spaces and powerful worship experiences.

As the first imagery seen upon entering the exhibit hall, two of DP’s 3-chip TITAN displays greeted attendees by creating a seamlessly edge-blended 16’ image on a DNP Supernova Infinity screen. Two FUSION warp and blend processors enabled the dual-projector blend.

Digital Projection's IITSEC Recap
I/ITSEC 2010 Discovers Digital Projection for Simulation and Training

CLICK HERE TO READ THE ENTIRE I/ITSEC SHOW RECAP, PLUS VIEW MORE PHOTOS.

As part of DP’s worldwide expansion, the simulation market represents a long-term opportunity that is now moving into focus. Our first pragmatic step into the simulation/visualization market involved hiring Phil Laney as DP’s director of simulation in early 2010. Last week, we took another ambitious step as we exhibited at I/ITSEC (Interservice/Industry Training, & Simulation Education Conference), the world’s premier and largest simulation and training event.

Held annually in Orlando, Florida, the I/ITSEC tradeshow consists of manufacturers and decision makers alike with an interest in simulator and trainer systems. A formidable variety of simulators and trainers are currently in use in critical applications around the world, including flight simulators, driving simulators, maritime (ship bridge) simulators, crane simulators and fire arms training, to name a few.

Digital Projection's IITSEC Recap
Simulation applications are both inventory-intensive and highly technical in nature, and DP is excited to apply both our technical expertise and product line enhancements toward such a fascinating market.

Tech Tip

LED Projector Advantages Versus Lamp Based Projectors


The following tech tip offers a streamlined but detailed overview of what differentiates DP's LED and UHP-illuminated projectors. Analyzing variables such as color performance, stability, maintenance, and other performance items, this document pinpoints the key characteristics of each technology platform.

Using this document as a guide, DP dealers can accurately identify which platform supplies the best fit for real-world applications.

1) Low Cost of Ownership
• Never Purchase a Replacement Lamp
    - 60,000 to 100,000 Hour Illumination System Depending on Projector Model
    - Saves Thousands of $$$ Normally Spent on Lamps During the Life of a Projector
    - Eliminates the need to Track Lamp Hours until Replacement

• No Lamps to Replace
    - Reduces Downtime Spent Replacing Lamps
    - Reduces Downtime Spent Recalibrating Brightness and color
    - Eliminates the Need to Hold Spare Lamp Inventory

• Replacement LED Module (if ever needed)
    - Low cost, costs less than two lamps
    - Unlikely to ever be needed, as 60,000 hours of LED life equals nearly 8 years of 24/7 operation
