Atlanta, GA (InfoComm 2012) – Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a major electronics update to their entire LIGHTNING series. The newly-named LIGHTNING Pro Series 3D platform enlists DPI's latest NextGen electronics platform, delivering advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, 3G-SDI input compatibility, high frame rate 3D functionality as a standard feature in all LIGHTNING displays, and a host of additional professional features to suit the world's most demanding large-scale imaging applications. Delivering between 20,000 and 30,000 lumens, LIGHTNING Pro Series 3D projectors are available in sx+, 1080p and WUXGA resolutions. With almost 30 distinct 3D models in total, DPI offers full resolution 3D solutions with more than ample brightness, native resolution and contrast to suit any application. No other company has a comparable product line of precise 3D large screen displays.
Delivering up to 30,000 lumens of dazzling brightness, the new LIGHTNING Pro Series 3D projectors reveal the penultimate 3-chip DLP® imaging performance. Utilizing DPI's new, advanced electronics, all LIGHTNING Pro Series 3D displays provide the user with advanced FusionExpress Warp & Blend capability, including the ability to make extensive geometric warp correction via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight warp maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector's electronics. On board adjustments for Pincushion, Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and even Image Rotation, are standard in all new LIGHTNING Pro Series 3D displays.
Superbly capable edge blending and multi-projector tiling is provided 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 image content is displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the LIGHTNING'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 signal to be displayed by each projector in the array, and enables blending for the appropriate edges.
In addition to the remarkable Warp & Blend technology now included in each LIGHTNING projector, DPI's exclusive 3D advances further extend the remarkable flexibility engineered within each LIGHTNING 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 Processingâ„¢ 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.
DPI will be demonstrating numerous new single-chip and 3-chip precision projectors throughout a completely reconfigured 60' x 50' booth (#N941) at InfoComm 2012 from June 13 - 15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
