Welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year… and what a great new year it is going to be! DP saw consistent stabilization and strengthening of the economy through 2010, allowing us to post the biggest year in our history!

Entering 2011, our 15th year of doing business, we could not be more bullish. Integrator, Consultant and End User activity is strong in nearly all markets, our dealer channels to the markets are deeper than they have ever been, the economy continues to strengthen and our precision display lineup is more diverse, capable and application-relevant than it has ever been.

Here is a snapshot of our current product lineup:

Without a doubt, we owe sincere thanks to the multitude of customers and industry partners who have been true business friends and important contributors to our growth. We plan to return the favors by bringing you the most dynamic and innovative product range in our history, along with the most comprehensive package of customer-oriented resources DP has ever offered.

Meet the New TITAN Series of Projectors
More Efficiency.
More Flexibility.
Meet the New TITAN Series.

In Q4, 2010, DP launched our all-new TITAN sx+ 350. Producing an astounding 6000 lumens from a single 350 watt lamp, the ultra quiet TITAN SX+ 350 delivers exceptional lumen-per-watt-efficiency. In fact, to our knowledge, the only more efficient 3-chip platform is our 7000 lumen TITAN WUXGA 330!

We have enjoyed such rapid success with the TITAN WUXGA 330 and TITAN sx+ 350 platforms that we have decided to expand the 350 lineup to include our TITAN 1080p models.

Specifically, in Q1 of 2011, the TITAN 1080p-250 and 1080p-500 projectors will be phased out and replaced with the new TITAN 1080p-350, another highly efficient, super quiet, 6000 lumen, single-lamp powerhouse.

Worth noting – just like the dual lamp, 10,000+ lumen TITAN 700 series, the TITAN sx+ 350 and 1080p-350 projectors can be employed in either landscape or portrait orientation, and tilted lens over tail, or side over side. DP’s rugged and mechanically flexible RapidRig rigging frame is an easy-to-add option that assures simplicity in rigging TITANs in any mechanical orientation required by the application.

Look for the new TITAN 1080p-350 to be added to our published pricing during February, with shipments commencing right away. Feel free to contact your DP regional manager (click here) if you need more information in advance of that pricing release.

New 3D Projectors from Digital Projection Update
New Portrait and Landscape 3D Models On the Way


** Please note a change in nomenclature - "-S" products are now named "-L" **

Like any demanding projection application, 3D requires the right projection tool for the job. With more 3D application experience than any other projector manufacturer, DP’s well established TITAN 3D product line already represents the most comprehensive and capable range of 3D displays available in the world.

Forget what our competitors claim - it is a fact that DP’s array of TITAN and LIGHTNING 3D solutions exceeds the number 3-chip 3D displays offered by all of our competitors combined.

As we said, always use the right tool for the job.

With that vital thought in mind, DP is poised to launch six new TITAN 3D products. We proudly introduce the:

    • TITAN 1080p-3D-L
    • TITAN WUXGA-3D-L
    • TITAN SX+ 3D-L
    • TITAN 1080p-3D P
    • TITAN WUXGA-3D-P
    • TITAN SX+ 3D-P

2011 Brings EVEN MORE Opportunities for DP Dealers

As many of you have noticed, DP had quite a large advertising presence in 2010. At a time when some manufacturers are struggling, DP is now able to convert years of conservative, pragmatic growth into proactive market growth. This is great news for DP dealers, as we’re actively investing in education, support and service expansions through which you can grow your businesses. Advertising is another key component in this growth.

The first part of 2011 will see an even more aggressive approach than 2010, with blanket campaigns in print and web for the commercial AV, residential and simulation markets. Verticals within these markets, including Houses of Worship, 3D visualization and others will see focused ad investments as well.

Seminar sponsorships, banner ads and our customary full-page, full-color ads in key market publications are only a few of the plans we have already begun to implement.

You’ll also notice more product-specific advertising, especially on certain high-traffic sites such as www.projectorcentral.com. I’ve included a few samples below of some of the now-active campaigns. These are only a few of the many product highlights we’re running.

The efforts and support of every DP dealer, consultant and industry partner is integral to our strategy for 2011, and we hope you can put this very visible advertising investment to good use. Don’t hesitate to let us know how else we can help you grow. Let’s make 2011 a year to remember.

Tech Tip

UTILIZING DVISION AND IVISION 30 SERIES PROJECTORS IN PORTRAIT APPLICATIONS


Single-chip projectors in portrait mode

As mentioned in other articles in this newsletter, DP’s TITAN projectors offer tremendous flexibility to support both portrait and landscape applications. However, applications that require unusual mechanical positioning of the projector cover a wide range of budgets – and not all require the flagship performance the TITAN product line offers.

For those portrait applications that don’t need the extensive capabilities of the TITAN products, dVision and iVision 30 series projectors offer a great alternative.

Although the dVision and iVision 30 series are not designed for Portrait display use, they can be oriented with the lens pointing straight down, straight up, or anywhere in-between. That capability lends itself to a simple mirror trick that will rotate the image 90 degrees, allowing the resulting imagery to be presented to the screen in portrait orientation.
