Digital Projection International (DPI) and Mechdyne Corp., specialists in immersive, networked and collaborative visualization solutions, are introducing two new 3D-enabled media servers under the Dimension brand, at CEDIA EXPO 2010.
The Dimension 3D and Dimension 3D Ultra deliver two options through which home entertainment enthusiasts can enjoy 2D and 3D movies, gaming, digital pictures, and video files. When paired with a DPI 3D projector, such as the TITAN Reference 1080-3D, the Dimension servers present the most dynamic, immersive 3D entertainment imaginable, according to the company.
Based on the Dimension 1.0 platform launched at CEDIA EXPO 2009, the newly launched Dimension media servers have been completely redesigned from a user interface and navigation perspective. A custom-created interface replaces the previous Windows Media structure, enabling a more intuitive and straightforward user experience. Additionally, numerous hardware upgrades, including the inclusion of latest generation graphics technology, have been built in to the new Dimension servers. Complimenting these huge improvements are equally compelling price points, the company says, with the Dimension 3D entering the market at less than $20,000 and the Dimension 3D Ultra starting at under $50,000 MSRP.
The Dimension 3D servers remedy a common concern among home entertainment enthusiasts regarding the confusion surrounding the large number of incompatible 3D file formats by creating an easy to use server that focuses on the emerging standards. Whether enthusiasts create their own 3D content from now-available 3D cameras, enjoy 3D Blu-ray, or simply want to up-convert their 2D content to 3D in real time, the Dimension 3D servers act as flexible content hubs for a wide variety of 3D formats and file types. Simplified usability is a key component of the Dimension platform, so the Dimension 3D servers can be easily integrated with industry standard control systems or easily controlled through a simple iTouch control interface.
Both second-generation Dimension 3D servers are optimized to leverage Digital Projection’s latest 3D technology advances. The Dimension 3D servers will be sold by Digital Projection and delivered by Digital Projection’s select integrator network.
DPI will be demonstrating the second generation Dimension 3D server, as well as new 3D, LED, and high-performance large screen displays in their CEDIA EXPO booth (4436) and the Future Tech Pavilion (3874) from September 23-26 in Atlanta, Georgia.
