Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a brand-new, conservatively priced yet remarkably capable 3-chip product line. The new dual-lamp Mercury platform incorporates advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, native 1920 x 1080 (1080p) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, advanced 3D capabilities and a host of professional features to suit a wide range of commercial applications. A brightness range between 13,500 and 14,500 lumens, depending on the resolution, makes the Mercury 930 3D series ideal high-brightness imaging solutions for a multitude of medium to large-screen professional applications. Mercury series projectors will be available towards the end of 2013.
Mercury 930 1080p 3D and Mercury 930 WUXGA 3D projectors make 3-chip DLP® performance available in a compact yet boldly capable chassis that produces dazzlingly bright, saturated images and powerful video processing. Utilizing DPI’s latest Pro Series 3 electronics, both Mercury 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 Mercury 930 3D displays.
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 Mercury 930 3D’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.
Image scaling within the Mercury 930 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 between 13,500 and 14,500 lumens, the new Mercury 930 3D projectors employ dual 465 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 .67 to 10:36:1.
