    • Additional discounts on all DP 1080P models purchased throughout the 2009 calendar year!

3D Badges
Digital Projection Reveals 14 Active 3D Capable Displays


Digital Projection’s all-new lineup of 3D projectors provides precise and immersive imaging for scientific, commercial, military and entertainment applications. Our 3D lineup includes active 3D capable projectors in the iVision, TITAN and LIGHTNING product families.

iVision 3D Badges

We are offering two active 3D projectors in our single-chip projector lineup – the iVision sx+ 3D - equipped with a standard zoom lens, and the iVision sx+W-3D, equipped with a short throw ratio fixed lens. The size, weight, SXGA+ native resolution and Brilliant Color™ imaging make both iVision 3D models great solutions for portable 3D applications and permanent 3D installations with smaller screens.

TITAN 3D Badges

The new TITAN 3D product range is comprised of eight distinct projectors. In addition to the 3-chip DLP technology already included in each display, the TITAN 3D chassis houses our wide bandwidth active 3D electronics, which support sources running up to 120 Hz vertical refresh rate at 1080p native resolution. The TITAN 3D models are available with either SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) or 1080p (1920 x 1080) DMDs. Both the TITAN 3D SXGA+ and 1080p platforms are offered as either dual or single lamp models, and each of the two lamp configurations can be further customized as either High-Brightness or Ultra-Contrast models.

LIGHTNING 3D Badges

For active 3D applications demanding the highest lumen performance, DPI’s new LIGHTNING 3D offers the same source compatibility and imaging capabilities as the TITANs, while producing up to 21,000 ANSI lumens and 4000:1 contrast. Both High-Brightness and Ultra-Contrast versions of the LIGHTNING 40iSX+ 3D and LIGHTNING 1080p-3D are also available, yielding a total of four powerful LIGHTNING 3D models from which to choose.

Sundance
SUNDANCE Sets Records, TRIBECA On the Horizon


The record-breaking 2009 SUNDANCE Film Festival wrapped late last month to widespread acclaim. This year’s festival set a new attendance record, as well as a new record for the amount of video presented at the festival. Out of a total of 218 titles, 147 of them were high definition video! In total, there were 121 feature films shown, of which 75 were projected by way of Digital Projection’s LIGHTNING, TITAN and Morpheus displays. Of the 92 short films shown, 72 were in HD.

Digital Projection has been the official provider of video projectors to the Sundance Film Festival since 1998. We consider it an honor to help bring some of the year’s most creative films to tens of thousands of festival attendees. In fact, we are already making preliminary preparations for another stellar performance at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Just as we finished unpacking the projectors at the DP home office, we learned that the TRIBECA Film Festival would once again be using precision displays from DPI. New York City’s premier film festival will be using a fleet of our TITAN 1080p-700 projectors in six venues across the city. In addition, the festival will also rely on three of our flagship LIGHTNING 40 and 45 HD projectors. This makes the fourth year that Digital Projection will have the privilege of participating in this most prestigious east-coast festival.

The Tribeca Film Festival takes place from April 22 through May 3, 2009. For more information, please click here.
