DP Announces HUGE Expansion of M-Vision Cine Product Line
DP Announces HUGE Expansion of M-Vision Cine Product Line

When DP launched the first of our M-Vision series displays last year, we already had a proven, successful single-chip DLP product line in place. The new high-value, high-performance M-Visions were initially introduced to address a key pricepoint gap in our product line offering.

Suffice to say, the M-Visions have been an unprecedented success. So popular, in fact, that we've been hard at work evolving the platform in order to fully address a diverse array of applications.

The M-Vision series has rapidly expanded to now include high-contrast and high-brightness single-lamp models, high-brightness dual-lamp models, LED and even 3D models. From home cinema to gaming to corporate and Houses of Worship, there is now a product in the M-Vision lineup to suit nearly any task. And all for price points previously unavailable in the DP precision display line.

The following outlines the available projectors within each category:

M-Vision Cine-230 - MSRP=$6,995-$7,495
- 1,000 lumens/3000:1 contrast

M-Vision 260 HC & HB - MSRP=$8,495-$8,995
- up to 3,500 lumens/up to 3000:1 contrast

M-Vision Cine 400 - MSRP=$11,995-$12,495
- 5,500 lumens/2000:1 contrast

M-Vision Cine LED - MSRP=$15,995-$16,495
- 600 lumens/10,000:1 contrast

M-Vision Cine 3D - MSRP=$17,995-$18,495
- 5,500 lumens/2,000:1 contrast

Tech Tip

PRIMER ON DP'S LED PROJECTOR TECHNOLOGY


Earlier this year, Digital Projection International introduced the revolutionary M-Vision Cine LED. By now, most of us are probably aware of this product's many performance and cost of ownership benefits.

Those benefits include:
• Extraordinarily wide color gamut – wider than the commonly referenced Rec709 and NTSC color spaces
• Absolutely NO color wheel artifacts
• Lifetime Illumination™ - 60,000 hour illumination engine life means there's never a need for a lamp replacement
• Extremely quiet operation (30 dBA)
• Small form factor
• Low power consumption (350 watts@110V)
• Very low operating temperature
• Cool factor -- the most advanced and efficient illumination technology available today!

One facet of the projector that has challenged audiences accustomed to purely lamp-driven projectors is the relatively low light output as compared to other projection illumination technologies.

With a proper light meter, on average, we measure around 600 lumens from the new M-Vision Cine LED. When comparing LED specifications with lamp-lit projectors, customers that have yet to see the LED projector in action might be tempted to overlook the LED-driven projector on spec alone.

This would be a critical mistake, as due to the way humans perceive light projected from a Light Emitting Diode, those 600 lumens seem much brighter. Over the course of dozens of M-Vision Cine LED demonstrations, when asked to estimate how bright the projected image is, the average of the perceived brightness fell between 1500 and 2000 lumens.
