This high-performance projector just got better, native 1080p-style.
Digital Projection International (DP) has announced major developments to the company’s flagship Professional Series and introduced two new Lightning Pro projectors in native 1080p resolution. The new Lightning 30-1080p and Lightning 40-1080p projectors mark the launch of DP’s Pro Series II, the next generation of the company’s projectors equipped with advanced electronics and flexible rigging capabilities ideal for large-venue customers, DPI says.
DP’s Lightning Pro HD projectors have been engineered around Texas Instruments’ 2K (2048x1080) DMD, but the new Lightning 1080p series utilizes TI’s latest 10 micron 1920x1080 DMD’s, thus providing a more efficient path to native 1080p resolution, the company says.
The Lightning 30-1080p delivers 15,000 ANSI lumens and 2000:1 contrast at a list price of $79,995. The Lightning 40-1080p offers 20,000 lumens and 2000:1 contrast and is $89,995.
New features of the Pro Series II include Digital Projection’s Hyper-CooledTM Xenon lamphouse and DirectFlowTM DMD and optics cooling technology. Maximum source connectivity and accurate image resizing is provided through advanced NextGen electronics, equipped with both Genum and Pixelworks chipsets, and DP’s ColorMaxTM 7-point colorimetry assures color-critical applications benefit from the broadest color gamut, ultra-precise color calibration and the utmost stable white point definition, the company says.
