ATLANTA, GA (June 29, 2009) - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the addition of 1920 x 1200 resolution models to its 3-chip TITAN series. The new WUXGA native resolution displays present a 16:10 aspect ratio – a format that is becoming widespread in high-resolution desktop and notebook computer displays. The WUXGA format is also capable of displaying full 1080p video at native resolution with no scaling required.
The new TITAN WUXGA displays include the latest DarkchipTM DMD technology from Texas Instruments, and each provides a native resolution of 1920 x 1200. As powerful as they are efficient, the new WUXGA TITANS expand an already extensive TITAN product line that includes 720p, 1080p and sx+ displays. Each TITAN incorporates DPI's CoolTekâ„¢ engineering, which assures the projectors deliver the highest lumen performance with the lowest power consumption, thermal (BTU) and noise level (dBA) output. Furthermore, the TITAN WUXGA-700 and Ultra Contrast models can operate in portrait mode, allowing DPI customers to create and display impactful imagery through aspect ratios that are taller than they are wide.
The new TITAN WUXGA models include:
• TITAN WUXGA-700 – 12000 lumens, 2000:1 contrast
• TITAN WUXGA 700 - Ultra Contrast – 6000 lumens, 4000:1 contrast
• TITAN WUXGA 3D – 6000 Lumens, 2000:1 contrast
• TITAN WUXGA Dual 3D – 10000 lumens, 2000:1 contrast
• TITAN WUXGA 3D - Ultra Contrast - 3000 lumens, 4000:1 contrast
• TITAN WUXGA Dual 3D-Ultra Contrast – 5000 lumens, 4000:1 contrast
Additional engineering advancements included in the TITAN WUXGA models include DP's proprietary ColorMaxTM calibration capability – simplifying the process of accurately setting and maintaining projector colorimetry. The new TITAN WUXGA 3D models also include DP's FastFrame smear reduction, as well as Dual Flash Processing, which supports the display of 60 Hz sources at frame rates up to 120 Hz. Dual Flash Processing is an especially useful capability for many 3D applications.
According to Mike Levi, president of DPI: “WUXGA displays are a vital next step in large screen resolution, as we have observed the expanding use of notebook and desktop computers adopting that resolution platform. WUXGA's 16 x 10 native aspect ratio is an almost perfect meeting place for 1920 x 1080 and 1600 x 1200 sources to co-exist, as both can be displayed at their full native resolution, but with minimized un-used display area.” Levi continued, “We have experienced commercial customers in a number of vertical markets selecting WUXGA as the right platform for their next projector purchases, and we are excited to be revealing a wide array of powerful, efficient and responsible 3-chip WUXGA solutions that support those needs.“
