What's been happening
Did you attend I/ITSEC 2018 Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL? We hope you stopped by our booth! Digital Projection was thrilled to be there, demonstrating our latest simulation display solutions.
With over 400 exhibitors, I/ITSEC is the largest modeling, simulation and training event in the world - and DP had to be a part of it! The star this year was the world's first 8K DLP projector - the INSIGHT LASER 8K from Digital Projection. Building off the established performance of our popular INSIGHT 4K, this powerful unit delivers more than 33 million pixels to the screen (full 8K resolution) through 25,000 lumens of color-rich and reliable laser illumination. Running a close second was the debut of the new X-Vision WQXGA LED projector. Created specifically for the simulation and visualization market, this 3D capable model features an astonishing 50,000+ hours of stable, maintenance-free illumination and is a perfect fit for any simulation project.

Our solutions in action
INSIGHT 4K at North America’s First ‘Seamless’ Dome Planetarium
When Minnesota's Bell Museum drew up plans to renovate their planetarium, the goal was to pair cutting-edge technology with the University of Minnesota's latest data research. To accomplish this, The Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium chose Digital Projection's INSIGHT Dual LASER 4K. Find out why here...
Tips from our experts
- Inferior UV filters – inadequate filtration of UV light can cause permanent damage to the projector color wheels (which can melt) and critical optical components, cracking integrator rods, fold mirrors, and prisms.
- Lack of thermal couplers installed in-series with lamp wiring – this results in insufficient fan speed, creating excessive heat which can melt fans, wiring, and color wheels, or shatter UV filters and internal optics.
- Defective lamp timers - inhibiting “Lamp end-of-life notifications and alarms”. Inadvertently running lamps beyond their rated hours of operation creates the potential for lamp explosions, which often causes damage to optical components including color wheels and integrator rod assemblies.
- Lamp anode and cathode wiring or connectors that plug into the lamp driver installed backwards/upside down – causing failures of the lamp driver assembly or the DC power supply. Replacement of those parts, along with the lamp will be required to restore functionality.
The pictures below provide examples of the damage non-DP Certified lamps can cause to customer-owned projectors. Clearly, the best solution is to always use manufacturer-certified lamps.
