Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the TITAN 1080p LED 3D, the world’s first combination of 3-chip DLP imaging and solid-state LED illumination. Utilizing Texas Instruments’ DarkChip DLP technology, DPI’s new TITAN 1080p LED 3D merges the long-recognized precision and power of the TITAN product line with the stunning color space and black levels of LED illumination. The TITAN LED’s 2,000 lumen specification separates it from all other purely LED driven displays, yet understates the perceived image brightness and clarity delivered. In addition to the higher brightness, the TITAN LED enlists DPI’s Lifetime Illumination™ platform, providing a virtually maintenance-free imaging solution that never requires a lamp replacement. Priced at $79,995 MSRP, the TITAN 1080p LED 3D delivers a truly distinct imaging solution for home theaters without compromise.
The benefits of LED illumination versus lamp illumination are widely known, including unrivaled color performance, lower overall cost of ownership, less heat and noise produced and no lamp replacement concerns. Equally as compelling are the advantages to 3-chip DLP/LED over single-chip DLP/LED displays. The color gamut produced by a 3-chip LED display is up to two times as broad as a single-chip DLP/LED projector. In fact, with DMDs dedicated to each primary color, as opposed to sequential display of R, G and B primary colors (as in single-chip), the TITAN 1080p LED simultaneously produces higher bit depth, higher color saturation and much higher brightness than single-chip DLP/LED projectors. This results in color performance that is truly beyond compare.
Though often measured as less bright than many lamp-based projectors, LED projection systems are perceived by the viewer as being much brighter than their measured luminance specifications, thanks in part to the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect (H-K effect). The International Electrotechnical Commission defines the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect as, "A change in brightness of perceived color produced by increasing the purity of a color stimulus while keeping its luminance constant within the range of photopic vision." In layman’s terms, the H-K effect describes a situation whereby if two color stimuli sources with the same luminance are compared, the perceived brightness induced by the color stimuli of higher purity will be higher than that of lower purity. LED illuminated projectors produce extraordinarily high color purity and saturation, thus appearing much brighter than a lamp-based display with similar measured lumen specifications.
LED projectors are ideal for any application needing long-life projection systems with unmatched color saturation, lumen maintenance and color stability. As LED projectors do not enlist a traditional lamp, a home theater or media environment utilizing DPI’s TITAN 1080p LED 3D display will benefit from their Lifetime Illumination™ 60,000+ hour lifespan. DPI’s Lifetime Illumination™ certification ensures that their LED projectors will deliver many years of consistent, engaging and virtually maintenance-free imagery for the application in which they’re installed.
A combination of consistently stable, long-term light output and a supremely low-maintenance illumination system defines DPI’s LED display solutions. In each of Digital Projection’s LED displays, the RGB-based LED illumination system eliminates the need for a color wheel to produce primary colors. Instead, red, green and blue LED’s produce primary color illumination, rendering incomparable color gamut and color saturation with no color wheel artifacts. Additionally, certain LED displays in DPI’s product line, including the TITAN 1080p LED 3D, feature their FastFrame technology, which assures fast-moving content appears remarkably sharp and free of motion smear - an important consideration when viewing sporting events or other fast-moving content.
