3D Content Update

For most of 2010, as 3D displays started making their way on the scene, the common request was for more 3D content. We have good news! The production schedule for 3D content is now quite robust, and gets stronger every day. With over 43 Blu-ray titles already in 3D, and eight more scheduled for release by mid April, 3D Blu-ray player owners now have a wide array of content available. Furthermore, ESPN 3D is in full operation, and Comcast now offers a dedicated 24/7 3D channel.

For those who have been waiting for 3D gaming, Sony's Playstation 3 now supports 3D with 38 games available in 3D, ranging from the popular Call of Duty to NBA 2K11. Once armed with the 3D firmware update, the Playstation 3 can also play 3D Blu-ray movies.

Tech Tip

Proper Environmental Cooling for TITAN Projection Systems


In most AV systems, Digital Projection's displays mounted in an open space require no special venting or cooling, as long as the ambient room temperature is within normal ranges (65°F - 85°F).

However, some applications require the projector be enclosed, to either preserve the architectural integrity of the venue, or to reduce ambient room noise to an absolute minimum. In cases where a projector is enclosed, it is extremely important to properly ventilate the enclosure.

In the TITAN family of projectors, DP created a mechanical architecture that reveals a simple and efficient airflow path. Filtered cool air moves through the chassis with few obstructions and few turns, minimizing back pressure as well as noise due to airflow turbulence.
