DP's US Headquarters Expansion
US Headquarters Expansion is Underway!

Digital Projection International (DPI) was founded with one key objective; to innovate the projection technology of the future in order to advance the capabilities of large-screen displays.

From our strategic partnership with Texas Instruments which led to refinement of the Digital Micromirror Device™ for projection applications and the world’s first 3-chip DLP projector, to receiving the only Emmy Awards ever awarded to a projector manufacturer, we’ve seen many successes. DPI’s progress over the years is proof that equal parts hard work and product knowledge can lead to great things.

Tech Tip

LED Projector Advantages Versus Lamp Based Projectors


The following tech tip offers a streamlined but detailed overview of what differentiates DP's LED and UHP-illuminated projectors. Analyzing variables such as color performance, stability, maintenance, and other performance items, this document pinpoints the key characteristics of each technology platform.

Using this document as a guide, DP dealers can accurately identify which platform supplies the best fit for real-world applications.

1) Low Cost of Ownership
• Never Purchase a Replacement Lamp
    - 60,000 to 100,000 Hour Illumination System Depending on Projector Model
    - Saves Thousands of $$$ Normally Spent on Lamps During the Life of a Projector
    - Eliminates the need to Track Lamp Hours until Replacement

• No Lamps to Replace
    - Reduces Downtime Spent Replacing Lamps
    - Reduces Downtime Spent Recalibrating Brightness and color
    - Eliminates the Need to Hold Spare Lamp Inventory

• Replacement LED Module (if ever needed)
    - Low cost, costs less than two lamps
    - Unlikely to ever be needed, as 60,000 hours of LED life equals nearly 8 years of 24/7 operation
