Digital Projection International will debut three new products at CEDIA EXPO 2009. In addition to introducing its newest projector enclosure, it also showcased its new high-brightness DLP display and its new LED illuminated DLP display.
DPI’s CINEskin projector enclosure for TITAN and TITAN Reference Projectors consists of a streamlined outer cabinet, internal cooling fans, strategically placed sound isolation material, power, and IR repeaters. It is also equipped for an optional TheaterScope anamorphic lens/sled combination. After an installation made simple due to pre-milled installation points, access to the projector’s input panel is available by way of a pressure-activated magnetic panel.
CINEskin was designed to seamlessly house any TITAN projector and the optional TheaterScope system within an enclosure suitable for even the most elite home cinemas. Molded sound isolation material surrounds the projector and absorbs acoustic wavelengths, thus eliminating projector noise in the viewing environment. CINEskin’s internal cavity is also designed to efficiently disperse heat generated by the projector via a carefully engineered thermal management system. Low noise fans pull cool outer air into the enclosure while simultaneously drawing heat out of the rear exhaust vent.
The single-chip, single lamp M-Vision 260 is DPI’s new high-brightness DLP display. Providing 2,000 lumens and 3000:1 native contrast, the display presents a powerful but affordable solution for many home entertainment spaces. The high lumen output and contrast allow the Cine 260 to thrive in cinemas with screens up to 10 inches wide, as well as in venues with some ambient light, such as media rooms with smaller screen sizes. The compact and quiet chassis, 1080p resolution, integrated electronics, and straightforward user interface make the M-Vision Cine 260 a viable solution where simplicity and quality are paramount.
Showcasing a new elegant body design, the Cine 260 addresses a common request among home integrators for DPI’s industry-leading precision imagery in a small, sleek cabinet. Installation is flexible due to the compact and lightweight chassis design and a lens shift range of 30% horizontal and 120% vertical. Multiple lens options provide further flexibility with a throw ratio ranging from 1.25 to 30.0:1, and a fixed lens offers a .73:1 throw ratio. Connectivity includes two HDMI inputs, as well as RBG via D-15, component, composite, and S-Video inputs.
The single-chip M-Vision Cine LED adds the first Lifetime Illumination display to DPI’s single-chip product line. It produces up to 600 lumens and 10,000:1 contrast. Quiet and compact, the M-Vision Cine LED presents a large-screen imaging solution in an affordable but precise chassis. Ideal venues include theatrical viewing spaces with controlled ambient light with screens up to 8 inches wide. As the Cine LED does not incorporate a traditional lamp, media environments utilizing the new display will benefit from their Lifetime Illumination 60,000+ hour lifespan. Additionally, the Cine LED does not rely on a color wheel, which renders the projector completely free of color wheel artifacts.
Like the new Cine 260, the Cine LED showcases DPI’s new sleek body design and makes for easy installation due to the compact and lightweight chassis and lens shift range. Connectivity also includes two HDMI inputs, as well as RBG via D-15, component, composite, and S-video inputs.
