Digital Projection International (DPI) has created a fully automated cost of ownership calculator for the AV industry. The calculator fulfills numerous requests from AV integrators in both commercial AV and home cinema channels.
Given the current economic climate, purchase decisions should be based not just on the initial purchase price of a product, but also on the long-term cost of ownership, as the combination of the two defines the actual cost of owning and operating any product.
The cost of ownership calculator acts as a simplified, comprehensive tool, taking into consideration the following data: initial purchase price, lamp replacements, scheduled maintenance, miscellaneous consumables and cost of power.
The defining article and cost of ownership calculator can be viewed on Digital Projection’s website by visiting www.digitalprojection.com/efficiency.
