Gearing Up for CEDIA 2011

Digital Projection's CEDIA 2011 Show Unveiling

CEDIA 2011 is just 3 weeks away! After months of designing and planning, DP's CEDIA exhibit is now "in production," with DP team members and resources in all corners of the world working to bring it all together.

Our CEDIA 2011 exhibit will be another milestone production - expected to fill 3 semi trucks full of gear. Once on site, nearly 25 tons of hardware will be deployed to create an expansive, 3600 square foot projection show room, featuring 14 distinct DP models displayed in galleries and formal theaters.

We are proud to be presenting all of our projectors on state-of-the-art projection screens provided by Stewart FilmScreen.

As you might expect, we have major new products and news to unveil at the show. Here is a glimpse of some of the bigger announcements:

    • dVision 35-1080p-3D: The newest 3D platform to join the array of 3D displays in our product line, the dVision 3D products will be available in a selection of color wheels, to optimize projector brightness for specific screen sizes and home venues. While DP also offers another impressive single-chip 3D platform, the M-Vision Cine 3D, the dual-lamp dVision projectors benefit from more extensive capabilities, and as such, provide extensive flexibility in both source connectivity and installation capabilities. As one example, the superb dVision optics provide the greatest range of throw ratios and available lens shift.

    • dVision Scope 1080p: Another important new dVision platform, but this one is based on the native WQXGA (2560 x 1600) DMD – a DP exclusive. In the dVision "Scope," the native resolution of the WQXGA chip is masked down to 2560 x 1080 pixels. This enables constant height "TheaterScope" applications without the need for costly anamorphic optics and mechanical sled systems. Here's how it works: When the projector is presented with a 1080p source, it displays that source at the native 1920 x 1080 pixels. When the projector is presented with scope content, the vertical 1080 pixels are maintained, while additional horizontal pixels are added to present the wider image. As an example, a 2.35:1 source would be displayed at 2538 x 1080 pixels, bringing more resolution and more lumens to the wider, scope aspect ratio screen. The dVision Scope 1080p represents the simplest, most elegant and highest resolution solution for constant-height screen applications.

    • HIGHlite Cine 330: At CEDIA 2010, DP introduced our revolutionary HIGHlite Cine 260 – an all-new, value-oriented 3-chip DLP projector, with all of the benefits that 3-chip brings… the broadest color gamut, the deepest color saturation, extensive gray scale and bit depth, and of course, exceptionally high contrast. At 4500 lumens, our new HIGHlite Cine 330 is a higher brightness addition to the HIGHlite product line. Still as compact, nearly as quiet and just a bit more expensive than the 260, the brighter HIGHlite Cine 330 is perfect for residential cinemas with larger screens, or media rooms with higher ambient light.

    • HIGHlite Cine 660: Further expanding the HIGHlite series, we are pleased to introduce the HIGHlite Cine 660 – our first dual lamp, entry level 3-chip display. Benefitting from a pair of long-life, low-cost lamps, the powerful HIGHlite Cine 660 belts out an impressive 8000 lumens. At this brightness level, massive image sizes and/or higher levels of ambient light are easily managed. The new HIGHlite Cine 660 even includes image warp for perfecting geometry – especially useful when projecting on curved screens, or on irregular projection surfaces. As an example, want to put a giant, 20' image on the side of the house next to the pool? The HIGHlite Cine 660 would be the perfect solution!

    • TITAN Quad 3D : The new pinnacle of TITAN performance. At 16,000 lumens, the TITAN Quad 3D may offer a bit too much horsepower for the typical home theater, but for non-traditional venues – say, the 40' image on the side of the house next to the pool… the sheer lumen power of this remarkably compact 3-chip power-house makes nearly any idea possible. Make it as big as you like!

    • TITAN Quad Reference 3D : DP's TITAN Reference Displays have presented the absolute benchmark for unsurpassed home cinema imaging for years. With true, native contrast ratios greater than 5000:1, the imaging is just remarkable and truly exclusive. DP previously only offered TITAN Reference models in dual lamp configurations, maxing out at about 6000 lumens. Believe it or not, some DP customers have entertainment aspirations that demand even more lumens, while also maintaining the exclusive "Reference-Level" contrast. The TITAN Quad Reference 3D can be site-configured to run on 1, 2, 3 or 4 lamps, producing lumens from 2000 – 8000 ANSI. Full 3D connectivity, ColorMax, FastFrame, Intelligent Lens Mount and extravagant color and contrast make this the most powerful and flexible Reference display in DP's history. No doubt, the TITAN Quad Reference 3D is destined for the most discerning clients in the world. With a display of this magnitude, we can't wait to see their theaters.

    • NEW 3 Year Warranty : TDP's precision displays present the pinnacle of performance. We now offer the best large screen entertainment in the world alongside the longest and most comprehensive warranty. Every projection product in our portfolio is now covered by a full 3 year parts and labor warranty. DP customers can own the best, knowing their investment is protected and their cost of ownership minimized for the first 3 years! All of the details are disclosed in our June 15th warranty statement.

    Of course, beyond our own exhibit and the array of new product announcements, we also have a record number of partners relying on DP to present their large scale imagery at the show. After all, audio sounds better, control runs perfectly, chairs are more comfortable, and screens look their best when our eyes are enjoying beautifully rendered HD and 3D entertainment. We are pleased to be providing a wide array of DP projectors to:

    That is a lot of extraordinary large screen entertainment to take-in during a brief 3-day show, let alone the other products that will be on the show floor. To help take the edge off after your first day on the show floor, DP is co-sponsoring the CEDIA Party, the evening of Thursday September 8th. The venue is the Pan American Place, just across the street from the Convention Center, and EVERYONE IS INVITED! The bash starts at 6:30 PM – just after the show closes for the day. Your CEDIA badge is the only pass you need to attend.

    Still plenty to do beforehand, but we know it will be a great show, and we look forward to seeing you there!
