Digital Projection launches fully 3D-enabled, budget-minded 3-chip HIGHlite displays
Posted on Monday, June 10, 2013
Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of fully 3D-enabled, high-performance HIGHlite 660 3D projectors. This compact dual-lamp, 8,000 lumen platform incorporates advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, support for all 3D standards, native 1920 x 1080 (1080p) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, bright, sharp optics and a host of professional features to suit a wide range of commercial applications. Every HIGHlite Cine 660 3D projector delivers brilliant image fidelity through DPI’s expert implementation of Texas Instruments’ 3-chip DLP® technology. Conservatively priced for such application-enabling solutions, the HIGHlite 660 3D series continues DPI’s legacy of delivering powerful and efficient displays for every venue.
The HIGHlite 1080p-660 3D and HIGHlite WUXGA-660 3D make 3-chip DLP® performance available in a compact, cost effective chassis that produces dazzlingly bright, saturated images and powerful video processing. Utilizing DPI’s new, advanced electronics, both HIGHlite 660 3D models enlist advanced geometry correction, delivering accurate warp map generation via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector’s electronics. On board implementation of Pincushion & Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and Image Rotation are also standard in the new HIGHlite 660 displays.
HIGHlite 660 3D projectors are equipped with DPI’s exclusive 3D advances that further extend the remarkable flexibility engineered within each HIGHlite display. Applications with 120 Hz native sources can utilize the High Bandwidth Input, eliminating the need for frame doubling. For 60 Hz 3D applications, DPI’s built-in Dual Flash Processing™ enables distribution of 3D content via 60 Hz formats by frame-doubling the signal within the projector. This produces the low flicker image characteristics of a native 120 Hz source without the infrastructure costs associated with distributing and switching ultra-high bandwidth signals.
High quality edge blending and multi-projector tiling are equally robust by way of high bit depth processing that ensures a seamless, contiguous image can be created from multiple projectors. Black Level Uplift in all non-blend areas guarantees uniformity across the screen, even when dark images are displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the HIGHlite 660’s onboard tiling function by assigning each projector a position within an image matrix. The video processing then automatically extracts the appropriate segment of the input image and enables blending for the appropriate edges.
Though overall image quality is top priority, scaling within the HIGHlite 660 3D models assures the accuracy of scaled imagery through a simple and straightforward process. Resizing and Warp functions are carried out in a single stage process, maximizing the clarity of the resulting image. Furthermore, when operating Blend in conjunction with Warp, the processing will automatically superimpose the warped-blend map onto the geometrically corrected image.
The numerous new capabilities perfectly complement other legacy characteristics that have made DPI’s precision displays the go-to standard for every commercial venue for over 15 years. With a light output of 8,000 lumens, the new HIGHlite 660 3D projectors employ dual 330 watt high intensity discharge lamps for incredibly bright imagery, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding applications. DPI’s ColorMax™ technology presents the most flexible color management system available today, and serves as a powerful color calibration tool, whether the installation calls for a single projector or an array of projectors in tiled or blended applications. A remarkable range of lens shift allows for broad installation flexibility, augmented by a wide fixed and zoom lens array with throw ratios ranging from .77 to 6.76:1.
