DP's Team Members Do More than Create the World's Most Capable Displays

Orion Nebula photo from DP

Creating the world's most capable precision displays takes a great deal of skill and technical know-how, in addition to a heavy dose of ingenuity. As you can imagine, DP is full of multi-faceted personalities, with interests that far surpass projectors alone. Graham Moss, Engineering Development Manager for Digital Projection Limited, is one such team member. Graham's interest in both astronomy and photography has, for many years, led him to creating long exposure photos of some of the galaxy's most fascinating configurations. The image above is one such image.

Michael Garrison Associates Uses Digital Projection

Paul Wonsek Associates (PWA) of Marietta, GA, and Michael Garrison Associates (MGA) of Fresno, CA, recently implemented an impressive $2 million renovation of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. The goal was to put together a plan that included acoustics, audio and video systems in addition to other building systems upgrades. Menlo Park Presbyterian Church's "home campus" attracts a diverse group of people to multiple weekend services held in two separate venues. More than 3,000 people attend services over four sites on a weekend.

Michael Garrison Associates Uses Digital Projection

Three retractable projection screens were installed in the 1,100 capacity main sanctuary: one 9.0'x 16.0'Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130 and two 7.2'x 12.8' Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130. With a long throw distance plus ambient light to contend with, three 10,000 lumen Digital Projection TITAN 1080p-700 projectors were chosen to deliver the imagery to each screen.

For Durst and MGA, the project was a resounding success. Said Garrison, "We went from working with a church concerned that their budget might limit what the systems could accomplish to people thrilled with the finished product."

Many thanks to Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Michael Garrison Associates and everyone else involved that selected DP's precision displays for this commanding installation.

DP's TITAN 3D Quick Start Guide


Based on the increasing number of TITAN 3D, M-Vision 3D and dVision 3D projectors being purchased, there is no doubt that the adoption of 3D in commercial applications continues to accelerate. That is great news!

Installing end-to-end 3D systems that encompass more than just a 3D Blu-Ray player and a flat panel requires a good understanding of a variety of the newest technologies, including the HDMI 1.4a standard, compatible signal distribution hardware, Infra-red sync transmitters and system control. DP's applications team helps our customers with 3D installation questions every day.

The frequency and similarity of the 3D-related questions that are presented to us has helped us realize that 3D Quick Start guides would be immensely helpful for our customers. Thus, we are proud to present the TITAN 3D Quick Start guide, which applies to all Rev F TITAN 3D projectors. We recommend this document as a "must read" if the sale or installation of a new TITAN 3D projector is in your future.

Click here to view or download the TITAN 3D Quick Start guide.

We will be working on creating Quick Start guides for many of our other products over the coming months. Watch for those to be released throughout 2012.
