New DP Configurator Tool Makes Radiance LED Video Walls Easy to Design and Install

 

There’s an art and science that goes into the design and installation of LED video walls—neither of which is particularly easy. DP has simplified the process significantly with the introduction of a new online LED Configuration Tool. By inputting a few specs—display height, width, pixel pitch, and viewing distance–you get a complete video wall design customized to the specific application. You’ll know the type, size, and number of Radiance LED panels to buy to achieve the desired imaging experience.

Other details such as the mounting preference, type of venue, number of AV sources, and any on-site services needed can further tailor the final output. Finally, to help your customers visualize the final installation—key to closing more sales—just upload an image of the space in which the video wall will be installed and sample content that will be displayed to generate an accurate rendering of the finished space.

Check out the LED Configurator here.

As always, DP’s customer service and concierge support are available to answer questions and guide you through the design and installation process.

Recognized for its incredible installation versatility and imaging excellence, DP’s innovative HIGHlite 4K UHD Reference Satellite Modular Light Source (MLS) projection system grabs top honors in CE Pro’s annual TNT contest.     

Digital Projection International brings home from ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) the coveted TNT (Top New Technologies) award from CE Pro magazine for its game-changing HIGHlite 4K UHD Reference Satellite Modular Light Source (MLS) projection system. Innovative in design, powerful in performance, and replete with numerous benefits for both systems integrators and end-users, the HIGHlite Satellite MLS 3-chip DLP sets a new standard for residential projection systems. DP’s HIGHlite Satellite MLS was selected by a distinguished panel of judges as the most innovative residential projection technology and was presented the TNT award at Integrated Systems Europe 2023 in Barcelona, January 31-Febuary 3.

One of the most significant differentiators of DP’s HIGHlite Satellite MLS is its revolutionary two-piece design. The light source and projector come as two separate components, which makes the projector chassis incredibly lightweight, compact, and easier to install, especially in tight spaces. The projector chassis weighs just 42 pounds, compared to the 120 pounds of most other projectors, and is 83% smaller than its original integrated design. The illumination engine can be located apart from the projector to minimize noise and simplify upgrades and maintenance.

“The Top New Technology Awards program recognizes innovation being shown at ISE, which has become one of the most important global technology events. The TNT Awards represent product engineering at the highest level, which Digital Projection continues to demonstrate with its unique and versatile solutions,” says CE Pro executive editor Arlen Schweiger. “CE Pro congratulates DP on their well-deserved award for the HIGHlite Satellite MLS projection system!”

“We are honored to be recognized by CE Pro for our HIGHlite S-MLS and extremely proud to provide systems integrators with a projection solution that not only performs exceptionally well but simplifies installation tremendously,” says Chuck Collins, Digital Projection vice president of sales. “The TNT award is a monumental achievement and well-deserved tribute to our outstanding engineers and designers who consistently push the boundaries of technological innovation to create some of the world’s finest imaging products. Our revolutionary HIGHlite S-MLS projection system is a representation of DP’s commitment to excellence and leading-edge projection solutions.”

Manchester (UK), 9th January 2023 – Digital Projection will again be playing a central role at 2023 Barcelona’s Integrated Systems Europe (31 January – 3 February), where the manufacturer will be showcasing its class leading, high-end projection products and technologies, including what is arguably the most important development in projection since the advent of laser light source: Digital Projection’s revolutionary Satellite MLS (Modular Laser System). Digital Projection will be joined on the stand by VIOSO, which will bring its expertise in complex dome calibration and video-mapping projection to create an eye-catching application-based stand experience.

Building on the company’s commitment to develop and make available breakaway projection technologies for the world’s best immersive experiences, the Digital Projection stand will host the latest and most advanced visual technologies alongside its flagship Satellite MLS, with the world’s brightest 1-Chip DLP® projector (M-Vision 27000), as well as the mighty TITAN range of projectors.

Digital Projection’s unique Satellite MLS technology will arguably be a show highlight again this year: Challenging the outdated view from the rest of the projection industry, Digital Projection has turned the concept of performance-to-size ratio by developing a technology that allows BOTH smaller and more powerful projectors. Offering significant benefits at every stage of a system design, Satellite MLS separates the light source from the small, lightweight projector ‘head’, giving integrators greater freedom, particularly where space an access are restricted, while reducing noise and heat from the audience location. By separating the projection head from the light source and linking the two with robust and flexible fibre-optic cables up to 100m long, Digital Projection’s latest innovation offers integrators and system designers more flexibility and options to deploy advanced visual solutions, whilst making high-end RGB laser illumination accessible at a cost-effective price point.

Digital Projection to showcase most comprehensive high brightness projection range at ISE 2023

M-Vision 27000

Visitors to the stand will also discover the new M-Vision 27000: previewed for the first time at ISE, it will be shipping in early Q3 2022 and is set to be the world’s brightest 1-Chip DLP laser projector. True to its commitment to offer ever-closer 3-Chip DLP performance at a 1-Chip DLP price point, the new M-Vision 27000 packs the most advanced technologies to bring stunningly saturated colours at levels of brightness never attained before.

All these technologies will be brought to life with a little help from VIOSO’s magic, which is partnering with Digital Projection at ISE this year to offer visitors a mapping spectacular. Benjamin Fritsch, CEO of VIOSO GmbH, commented: “We are proud to team up with Digital Projection at ISE and utilise the power of their unique projection technology to create a stunning visual experience. One of the show stopper will undoubtedly be the free floating projection dome powered by Digital Projection’s MLS technology.”

VIOSO will showcase its latest ground-breaking multi-playback warping & blending system which is integrated in more than 30 software- and hardware tools on the market. An interactive bar enhanced by multi-projection as well as a demo area and a unique projection mapping exhibit powered by VIOSO’s calibration and playback technology will complete the stand.

Digital Projection to showcase most comprehensive high brightness projection range at ISE 2023

Continuing with the showcase of our Satellite MLS, Digital Projection demonstrated at a recent series of CEDIA Tech Summits for the residential market.

We provided our attendees the chance to experience incredible imagery with super sharp visuals and amazing color. For that big screen experience at home, this new model from Digital Projection is a true game changer!

We participated in the following summits:

  • October 18 in Denver, CO at the Denver Marriott West
  • November 1 in Irvine, CA at the Irvine Hilton
  • November 3 in Woodland Hills, CA at the Marriott Warner Center
  • December 6 in Tampa, FL at the Embassy Suites Tampa – USF/Near Busch Gardens
  • December 8 in Coral Springs, FL at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel & Convention Center

Digital Projection was thrilled to exhibit our current technology for the residential entertainment industry at the CEDIA Tech Summits.

On November 14-20, 2022, Digital Projection participated at LDI. LDI is a show that caters to Live Event Designers. In the past, Digital Projection has been a critical supplier to rental and staging companies. These days, Digital Projection is being used more often in Performing Arts venues as well as other “visitor attraction” venues such as amusement parks and museums.

Digital Projection partnered with an industry leader, AV Franklin. AV Franklin provides a variety of live event and staging products, including set elements, stage lightning, and of course great quality screens.

Digital Projection used AV Franklin’s booth at the show to display 2 incredibly popular projectors. On one screen we displayed one of our most dependable high-brightness 1-chip projectors, the M-Vision 21000. Illuminated by both red and blue lasers, this color accurate 20,000 lumen projector is an affordable workhorse! It is popular in large auditoriums, sanctuaries, and many other venues where large bright screens are a necessity.

We also displayed our revolutionary new Satellite Modular Laser System. It is a modular projection system that provides for a small projection head that is separated from modular light sources via a fiber optic cable. Our proprietary cable system allows the whisper quiet head to be installed up to 100 meters away from its light source. The entire system operates on 110V and can be as bright as 40,000 lumens.

LDI enjoyed great crowds in Las Vegas and the buzz around our new Satellite projector series was one of the main talking points at the show.

Our display products need to be seen to be fully appreciated, and that was accomplished at LDI.

At Digital Projection, with our line of high-end projection and LED displays, we focus our attention on both the commercial and residential markets. While the product offering is pretty much the same, the customer’s needs and requirements can vary dramatically. We demonstrated a new product and a key industry tradeshow.

The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) held their annual Expo in Dallas Texas September 29 through October 1. The expo is for dealers and integrators that work within the residential market. Manufacturers of products for every aspect of home electronics display their products at the CEDIA Expo. In addition to televisions, projectors, audio, and security gear, it is not unusual to see more esoteric products like whole house vacuum systems or home weather stations at the show.

Digital Projection demonstrated nearly our entire residential product line at the show including a 14’ wide Radiance LED video wall. But we also showcased our new ground-breaking HIGHlite Satellite Modular Light System.

Digital projectors have been the cornerstone video display technology of high-end home theaters, and media rooms for many years. Projection technology has developed significantly over the past few decades. Resolution has been getting higher and higher – now up to 8K – and brightness capabilities have been increasing year on year from all manufacturers.

As projectors have gotten brighter, the have also been getting bigger, heavier, and more power hungry. This makes everything from installation to servicing more difficult, time consuming and expensive. One also needs to consider the noise and heat that they create. Any one of those factors can spoil a sales opportunity.

About 3 years ago we set ourselves a goal to see if we could separate the light source and projector to overcome these problems. Since the light source takes up so much room in a projector and creates some much heat and noise, we knew if we could accomplish this monumental task, we could create a whole new segment of projection technology.

We had the concept of putting laser light source in a server room that could be dozens of feet away from a projection “Head”, which would immediately address the size, weight, noise, and thermal concerns.

Along with the projection “Head” concept, the other key component was illumination technology, and we decided to break with the linear thinking that was leading our competitors and us to ever larger, power hungry and noisy projectors. We’ve chosen RGB Laser illumination. It gives truly amazing color and contrast, that far exceeds that of the Laser Phosphor technology that nearly all our competitors use.

The result is compact, quiet, projection “Heads”, a fraction of the size and weight and power consumption of their traditional equivalents, coupled with modular light sources via a fiber optic cable.

The Satellite Modular Laser System (S-MLS) as we call it, allows integrators the ability to propose solutions that give the market real choice, generating added value by improving every aspect of design, production, shipment, installation, reliability, and image quality.

While we don’t often take orders for projectors at a tradeshow, we took an order at this year’s CEDIA Expo for a S-MLS, and built a pipeline of prospects for all of our products worth over $1,000,000!

If you would like to get a better idea of this year’s booth, Delta created a virtual version of our tradeshow booth so customers could visit it online. You can find it here.

MultiView is set to have a huge impact on the future of VR without Head Mounted Displays.

Our INSIGHT HFR 360 MultiView projector was first shown at ISE to much acclaim and is set to have a huge impact on the future of VR without Head Mounted Displays.

With Multi-View 3D projection, a single projector, with ultra-fast frame rates will accommodate several viewers, each being tracked and each having a view of the image that remains appropriate to their changing position. This allows the users to see and interact with each other in a truly shared collaborative manner.

The video below has been created by our parnters at the University of Weimar

To enable users to view images from their correct perspective, each user must be tracked to 6 Degrees of Freedom [6DOF] and Digital Projection has worked with leading industry partners in head tracking to achieve this. In every way, Digital Projection provides truly collaborative technology.
