2007 Road Show Underway!
Our first stop on the 2007 Road Show occurred in conjunction with NSCA earlier this month in Orlando. Road Show attendees were able to take a close look at the newest iVision, dVision, TITAN, and LIGHTNING projectors as well as screen technology from Stewart Filmscreen.
We are also pleased to announce that RGB Spectrum will be partnering with Digital Projection on 6 of our remaining 8 Road Shows! RGB Spectrum will be showing their SuperView 4000 windowing system on our TITAN and LIGHTNING Pro Series displays.
To schedule an appointment to join us for the product Road Show in your area, please contact your DP Regional Manager, local Manufacturer’s Representative or complete the online form below.
Harmony In The DP Product Line
With the launch of our new LIGHTNING Pro iSX+ displays, DP’s Pro Series product line is becoming immensely synergistic.
The LIGHTNING iSX+ shares the same next generation electronics as our TITAN sx+ and 1080p products, thus, their remote controls and user interfaces are identical. Commonality of the integrated electronics assures that projectionists familiar with the TITAN OSD will automatically be competent with the setup of the LIGHTNING iSX+ platform. It is probably worth mentioning that future LIGHTNING products, to be launched later this year, will also employ our new Next-Gen electronics.
With respect to lenses, the LIGHTNING iSX+, TITAN sx+ and TITAN 1080p projectors all use our new “mini-2K” lenses. In addition, the future LIGHTNING products, referenced above, will also employ these super high quality optics. Key benefits of the Mini-2K lenses include:
- Increased horizontal and vertical shift range
- Improved resolution
- Ultra-low geometric distortion
- Available in both High Brightness and High Contrast Variants
By providing one suite of high performance lenses across these two chassis, DP has simplified the Dealers’ projector/lens specification process and streamlined inventory management. The same benefits apply to Stagers operating mixed fleets of LIGHTNING and TITAN projectors – one common inventory of “mini-2K” lenses can support a range of projectors, from 5500 – 21000 lumens, at both sx+ and 1080p resolution.
All of the details and specifications of these lenses can be found in the appropriate TITAN or LIGHTNING user manual.
Both TITAN and LIGHTNING units equipped with mini-2K lenses will be on display at all 9 stops of Digital Projection’s 2007 Roadshow. Register for the show to experience the stellar performance of these optics first hand.

EH Expo Wrap-Up
Attracting visitors from all over the east coast, the 2007 EH Expo held in Orlando Florida was a resounding success. Our demonstration area was packed as soon as we opened the doors and we stayed late every day treating visitors to the stunning imagery that only Digital Projection International can provide.
This year, DPI partnered with our Manufacturer’s Rep Orion Integrated System’s LLC. We shared a meeting room in the “Demo Alley” area of the show. Acoustic Innovations provided a complete Home Cinema environment where our dVision HD projector was featured. Visitors were guided through the dVision HD room and then into an additional theater equipped with the high-resolution dVision 1080p coupled with an HD-DVD player. We used a clip from Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride” which provided a great source of color and contrast for our dVision projectors. For recommendations of great demo content to display in your show rooms, contact DP at any time. Screen Research provided an acoustically neutral screen and Cabasse Loudspeakers provided the spectacular audio.As a reminder, if you have a great marketing opportunity that you think both Digital Projection and your company could benefit from, don’t hesitate to speak with your regional sales manager!
