Welcome To CEDIA 2007!
Digital Projection is preparing an incredible display of full 1080p imagery for CEDIA 2007 (booth #240). Building on our multi-screen configuration from last year, we are raising the bar for presentation and style – using elements of projection technology never before shown on the CEDIA show floor.
Now that DP has a complete range of 1080p projectors in every size and price point, you can expect to see a breathtaking presentation of video and graphics from our exclusive single-chip and 3-chip DLP® home cinema displays.
New for CEDIA 2007, DP will introduce our expanded Reference Series of ultimate home cinema products. This elite class of projectors comprises the pinnacle display from each TITAN, HIGHlite and LIGHTNING series. At the other end of the spectrum, we will also show the smallest of our new 1080p projectors – the iVision 30-1080p. The incredible resolution, small footprint and ease of integration position the iVision 30-1080p as an amazing solution for venues where simplicity and imaging quality are paramount.
Also, as announced earlier in the year, this will be the first opportunity for many dealers to experience DP’s new ColorMaxTM technology, now integrated into all of our displays. Through a combination of Brilliant ColorTM technology, electronics processing, 7-point colorimetry and advanced calibration techniques, ColorMaxTM renders revolutionary enhancements to image fidelity and color accuracy.
Finally, with the incredible surge in 1080p content and rising demand for anamorphic 2.35:1 displays, DP will showcase 3 of our home cinema projectors equipped with our exclusive TheaterScope Premier System.
For yet another opportunity to view DP’s precision displays in action, look for our projectors in the Stewart Filmscreen exhibit and at the Silicon Optix party at CEDIA.We look forward to seeing you at the show!

Reference Series Expanded For CEDIA Launch
Digital Projection is expanding our line of Reference Series displays, continuing to deliver professional performance and provide a true Hollywood entertainment experience for the most extraordinary home venues. Delivering the highest pixel resolution and incredible color-depth, Reference Series projectors are an evolution of the Company’s commercial displays, consistently relied on by post-production houses, dignified film festivals and major theatrical venues. Comprised of two new LIGHTNING Reference 1080p models along with the HIGHlite Reference 1080p and the new TITAN Reference 1080p, DPI’s Reference Series represents the highest echelon of DLP® projection at four distinct price points.
NEW! iVision 30-1080p: Compact & Powerful
At only 3.5” tall and 11” wide, the iVision 30-1080p delivers up to 2,700 ANSI lumens through the use of a high-performance 300-watt UHP lamp. The projector is encased within a magnesium cabinet to optimize thermal efficiency, thus allowing for much higher lumen output than other projectors of similar size. Enabled with Brilliant ColorTM, the iVision 30-1080p can be ordered with any of three specialized color wheels - enhancing brightness, color or contrast. Depending on the color wheel selected, the iVision 30-1080p can produce contrast ratios up to 5000:1. Inputs include HDMI (1.3), DVI, component, composite, s-video and analog RGB.
DP Announces Exclusive ColorMaxTM Technology
Digital Projection is proud to announce significant hardware and software upgrades to 85% of our product line, arming users with powerful controls over color calibration and color gamut. A derivative of the digital cinema technology we helped pioneer over the past decade, ColorMaxTM technology delivers a new level of precision and image quality to large screen DLP® projection.
For all single-chip projectors in DP ’s Vision Series lineup, ColorMaxTM leverages the benefits of Brilliant ColorTM technology from Texas Instruments. Brilliant ColorTM enables increased projector brightness and improved color saturation by expanding the color gamut through the addition of cyan, magenta, and yellow color points.
For the second year running, TAGNZ proudly sponsored the the 2007 Telecom New Zealand Film Festival at Sky City Theatre in Auckland and the Paramount in Wellington, New Zealand. Using Emmy Award winning Digital Projection 3-chip DLP technology, audiences were thrilled to experience the quality of digitally displayed films.
Home of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and the Auckland International Film Festival, Sky City Theatre is one of New Zealand's premium entertainment venues. Bringing many independent filmmakers works alive at the 2007 New Zealand Film Festival was Digital Projection's Mercury 3-Chip DLP® projection system. The audience and film makers alike were amazed by the the film like image quality of the Digital Projection Mercury.
