ATLANTA, GA — Digital Projection International (DPI) an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems, announces the dVision 35-WQXGA, the first precision DLP® projector to deliver over 4 million pixels of imagery. Recently recognized as a “Best New Product” finalist at the 2010 CEDIA Expo, as well as a CE Pro BEST Award finalist, the dVision 35-WQXGA delivers a 1080p solution for 2:35 aspect content without the need for an anamorphic lens solution. Through a capable combination of programmable lens control and software, the dVision WQXGA delivers the CE channel’s first anamorphic lens free, full resolution, constant height, aspect ratio shifting projector.
DPI’s single-chip dVision 35-WQXGA boasts the highest resolution of any DLP® -based product available today. WQXGA is the nomenclature that represents 2560 x 1600 pixels – nearly twice the resolution of a 1080p projector. Twice the resolution capability means high-definition content experienced through the dVision WQXGA attains a truly awe-inspiring level of entertainment quality for home cinema enthusiasts. The dVision 35-WQXGA produces an amazing 4,096,000 pixels from a single projector. Over 4,000,000 pixels results in imagery with more resolution detail and higher small area contrast than the CE industry previously thought possible.
In addition to the unprecedented pixel density, the dVision 35-WQXGA XC presents a superior solution for moving between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 aspect ratio content (or any content wider than 1.78). Traditionally, an anamorphic lens has been required in order to move between different aspect ratios while displaying constant height. While this approach produces solid results, anamorphic lens solutions add significant cost, as well as mechanical and optical complexity to a home theater system. Equally as important, anamorphic optics consume about 10% of the projector’s brightness while also reducing the contrast ratio. Bypassing the need for an anamorphic lens when employed in a constant height application, the dVision 35-WQXGA presents a compelling and cost effective alternative to purchasing and installing a peripheral anamorphic lens.
The new 35-WQXGA projector inherits the field-proven reliability and exceptional optical qualities of DPI’s long-respected dVision series. Suitable for home entertainment venues with medium to large screens, the dVision WQXGA is quiet, elegantly designed and offers a diversity of system capabilities. Installation flexibility is assured through an extensive array of ultra-accurate optics, which provide throw ratios as short as .8:1 and as long as 4.5:1.
Further extending this flexibility is the availability of three different factory installed color wheel sets, allowing the user to select the projector / color wheel combination that provides the best balance of lumens and color depth for their venue. Projector lumens and black level can be further optimized to suit venue conditions through the straightforward adjustment of the motorized lens iris. Additionally, the dVision’s quick-change motorized lens mount provides a broad range of horizontal and vertical lens shift, allowing the projectors to be placed in a wide variety of locations in relation to the screen. Intuitive user controls and comprehensive source compatibility assure all dVision displays are simple to integrate, control and operate.
DPI will be demonstrating the new dVision 35-WQXGA, as well as new 3D, LED and high-value, lower cost precision projectors in their massive CEDIA Expo booth (#4436) and the Future Tech Pavilion (#3874) from September 23 – 26 in Atlanta, Georgia.
