Important New M-Vision Products to Launch at CEDIA
Important New M-Vision Products to Launch at CEDIA

Digital Projection launched the sleek and affordable M-Vision series at CEDIA 2009. Since then, the first models in this important platform, the M-Vision Cine 260 and the M-Vision Cine LED, have become the projectors of choice for home cinema integrators seeking an unbeatable combination of imaging performance and value under the DP brand. Read recent reviews of the M-Vision Cine LED from Home Theater magazine, Sound + Vision magazine, and Home Theater Review by clicking on the publication name.

As we stand on the threshold of CEDIA 2010, Digital Projection is poised to expand the performance and versatility of the M-Vision series even further. The first step of this expansion involves the exciting pre-announcement of the new M-Vision Cine 230!

Equipped with all the same capabilities as the M-Vision Cine 260, this newest M-Vision model employs a 230 watt lamp system, along with an RGB/RGB color wheel--designed to render amazing color gamut and saturation. The 1080p M-Vision Cine 230 produces 1000+ ANSI lumens – suitable to deliver more than 20 foot lamberts on screens up to 9 feet wide!

Ready for more? With an anticipated MSRP of only $6,995 and $7495, depending on the lens selected, the new M-Vision Cine 230 delivers the most exceptional price / performance value that DP has ever offered. Now more than ever, DP delivers precision projectors in every price range, as well as unmatched customer support.

The new 1080p resolution DLP M-Vision 230 will launch at CEDIA 2010, and will be featured in a dedicated theater within DP’s exhibit on the show floor. We will start accepting orders for the new M-Vision just prior to CEDIA, and first shipments of this exciting new product will commence in October.

BEYOND AUDIO SHOWROOM


Beyond Audio, a DP home cinema dealer based out of British Columbia, recently completed a remarkable showroom renovation that enlists two Digital Projection displays.

Beyond Audio uses Digital Projection

DP's award-winning M-Vision Cine LED projector lights up the main audio/video room of Beyond Audio's experience center with the help of a 96" diagonal Stewart Starglas screen hung from the roof trusses by aircraft cable.

Beyond Audio uses Digital Projection

Chosen for it's stellar picture quality and exceptional long-life efficiency, the M-Vision Cine LED runs full-time in the experience center. In order to comply with the room design, the LED was installed in a rear-projection setup using a fixed short throw lens.

The first thing that visitors see when visiting the experience center is a variable width Stewart Cinecurve screen being fed by gorgeous imagery from DP's TITAN Reference 1080p projector. This room acts as both a demonstration area and showpiece for the many events held at the facility.

Mike Ohman, CEO of Beyond Audio, commented, "Digital Projection's products work exactly as advertised: reliable, great quality and great options."
