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.

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

New Satellite MLS Projectors Elevate Educational Pursuits at Virginia Tech
Universities across the nation are advancing their AV systems to keep pace with modern teaching practices. At Virginia Tech, DP’s new Satellite MLS projectors are part of the progressive curriculum. Installed in the university’s “Cube,” a highly regarded center for exploratory research and learning, the modular design of the projectors enables exceptional freedom in how lessons are presented. More compact and lighter than traditional projectors, each Satellite MLS can be moved and repositioned to best suit the particular course of study; for example, transitioning the Cube from a venue where art students can explore new digital mediums to that of a scientific laboratory that incorporates virtual reality.
Summer is prime time for campuses to update their classroom AV systems. Get your foot in the door now with a DP projector or LED display offering!
