DPI Sponsors ISF Commercial Launch
Digital Projection is proud to announce that we are supporting the launch of ISF Commercial with a corporate sponsorship. The Imaging Science Foundation is dedicated to the highest standards of display calibration and the attainment of perfect images on screen. As the innovator of 3-chip DLP® technology, DP is eager to be aligned with an organization that places as much emphasis on calibration perfection as we do in manufacturing our projectors.
Beginning at NSCA and again at infoComm, show attendees will have the opportunity to enroll in the ISF Commercial certification program. The course covers the science of light and color and includes hands-on instruction on how to properly calibrate front and rear projection and flat panel displays.As a founding sponsor of ISF Commercial, you have DPI’s commitment that all of our displays are engineered and calibrated to deliver precise on-screen images. Additionally, DPI’s Chuck Collins and George Walter have been selected to serve on the board of advisors for ISF Commercial. Their involvement will help assure the alignment processes key to maximizing performance of 3-chip DLP displays are faithfully included in the program.

VIP 2000: Firmware Upgrade 1.2.4A
What It Is And Why You Need It!
The VIP 2000 1.2.4A firmware was released this past January and contains many solutions to issues found in previous firmware revisions.
There had been a continual issue that caused a problem if an RS-232 command was received while the VIP 2000 was in standby. The firmware was looking for a properly formatted ‘on’ command, however if another command was sent first, the VIP2000 would not recognize any further commands. The 1.2.4A firmware has corrected this issue.
Also included in this update is a solution to removing the on-screen display information that appears when switching sources. This feature is in the ‘Timeouts’ listing under 'Configuration' in the menu.
