Digital Projection Launches New TITAN Projectors
Complete Lineup of Ultra-quiet, Single-lamp TITAN 330 Displays Set to Launch in March

Thanks to our customers, DP has enjoyed tremendous success with our mighty TITAN displays. With nearly two dozen 2D and 3D models available, there is a perfect TITAN projector for every application.

That being said, there is always room for improvement, and we have been listening carefully to some very good feedback from our customers. One key point we heard related to the noise level of our single lamp units. In short, while all TITAN’s are exceptionally quiet for their lumen performance, it seems silence is truly golden. Thus, designing an even quieter TITAN was in order.

During 2010, DP’s engineers worked for many months to innovate an even more efficient approach to TITAN cooling and noise level management. That solution was revealed in the TITAN WUXGA 330 and TITAN WUXGA 3D platforms. Both are highly efficient, single lamp displays that operate at very low noise levels; less than 45 dBA, in fact, depending on ambient conditions.

In light of this major breakthrough, we are pleased to announce that during the month of March, all TITAN single-lamp 2D and 3D models will transition to the new, ultra-quiet and super-efficient 330 platform. Specifically, the 330 lineup will be offered in SXGA+, 1080p and WUXGA native resolutions, with 2D and 3D models designed to support either portrait or landscape oriented applications.

DP dealers who already depend on the performance and flexibility of our TITAN displays now have another great reason to embrace the products. DP dealers who have yet to experience the TITAN couldn’t pick a better time to become acquainted with the most awarded series in the DP product line. Contact your regional manager or manufacturer’s Rep today to schedule a demo.

DP Adds a New Member to the M-Vision Series
DP Adds a New Model to the M-Vision Series

We launched the first of our M-Vision series displays over a year ago. Since that time, the M-Vision product line has expanded to include new brightness levels, new resolutions, and new illumination sources. The latest addition to the M-Vision series increases the resolution of our popular M-Vision LED product to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution.

The new M-Vision Cine WUXGA LED combines all the technical benefits of LED illumination with the increased resolution of WUXGA. This combination makes the M-Vision Cine WUXGA LED ideal for demanding simulation, visualization and command & control applications where precise color stability, long life components, and high resolution are mandatory. The WUXGA LED unit will offer an estimated 600 lumens of light output while delivering a greater than 20,000:1 contrast ratio.

The new projectors will be available in Q2, 2011 with an estimated MSRP of $20,000.

DP's Trade Show Booth Construction
Curious How We Build Our Walls of Color and Light at Trade Show Exhibits?

Anyone that’s recently attended an InfoComm or CEDIA show has surely seen Digital Projection’s massive booth, draped dramatically in black curtains to limit ambient light from infiltrating the imagery within. What you may not realize is how many people, and how much hardware, truss, drape, scaffolding and DP engineers / technicians / artists, it takes to build our dynamic trade-show exhibits.

David Kile, West Coast applications engineer with DP, captured the video in the link below during breaks while our InfoComm 2010 booth was being set up. We think it’s an interesting insider’s view at the many steps involved in setting up our huge exhibits.

When the Dust Settles – Unexpected Benefits Arise from the Headquarters Expansion

Personal insight from Veronica Vital-Herne, General Ledger Manager, DPI

Since returning to work from the Thanksgiving Holidays, the US headquarters of Digital Projection have literally been turned upside down. A major construction project that will double the square footage of the Kennesaw home office has resulted in the tearing down of walls and the rearranging of many Digital Projection work spaces. One would naturally expect total chaos during such a transition. Remarkably, the process has been both relatively easy and quite enlightening.

Our expansion involves breaking through the demising wall between our present office space and the massive space next door. Because of this demolition, each employee with an office on or near that demising wall was relocated to temporary work spaces, scattered throughout the balance of our current facility. Many members of our team were relocated to cubicles assembled in DP’s demo room, just prior to the holidays.

Now, cubicles certainly aren’t rare in a corporate environment. What made the setup interesting, however, is that members from very different departments have been co-located in the same room with only a couple of feet between each work station. Suffice to say, everyone was curious to see what would come of this experiment that mixed accounting/finance department members with members of the service and support departments.
