Digital Projection Reveals 20,000 Lumen Projectors
The Digital Projection Titan Quad 2000 Series offers a brightness of 20,000 lumens.
At the InfoComm 2013 conference in Orlando this week, Digital Projection International (DPI) unveiled its Titan Quad 2000 series projectors, also known as the "Super Quad," which feature 20,000 lumens of brightness. The Titan Quad 2000 projectors are "the world's first projectors of this brightness, in a chassis with such a small form factor," according to the company.
The Titan Quad 2000 series uses DPI's advanced image warp and blend capabilities and offers three native resolutions, active 3D connectivity, and numerous other features required for commercial or staging applications.
Key features of the Titan Quad 2000 include:
- Three-chip DLP performance;
- Geometric warp correction capabilities through the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes;
- Support for generating, downloading, and storing up to eight warp maps within the projector's electronics;
- Rugged, compact chassis;
- Onboard adjustments for pincushion, barrel, cornerstone, vertical and horizontal keystone, and image rotation;
- Edge-blending and multi-projector tiling through high-bit-depth processing for creating a contiguous image from multiple projectors;
- Black level uplift in non-blend areas for image uniformity;
- Onboard tiling function for assigning each projector a position within an image matrix;
- DPI-exclusive 3D advances;
- High-bandwidth input capabilities to eliminate the need for frame doubling in applications with 120 Hz native sources;
- Built-in dual flash Processing for distribution of 3D content through 60 Hz formats by frame-doubling the signal within the projector;
- Four 465 watt high-intensity discharge lamps; and
- DPI's ColorMax technology for color management and color calibration.
DPI's Titan Quad 2000 projectors are already shipping and are available now.
Other new DPI projectors introduced at InfoComm include the compact Titan 930 series; E-Vision WUXGA 7500 high-brightness, high-value single-chip projector; two HIGHlite 660 3D projectors; and the new dual-lamp Mercury series projectors.
The Titan 930 series projectors are designed to offer high lumen performance in a compact design. Key features include:
- DPI’s advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities;
- WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200), 1080p (1,920 x 1,080), and Sx+ (1,400 x 1,050) resolutions; and
- 14,500 to 15,000 lumen output.
The Titan 930 platform will begin shipping in July 2013.
The E-Vision WUXGA 7500 features HDBaseT support, compatibility with numerous 3D standards, and lens memory. Other key features include:
- 7,500 lumens of brightness output;
- Numerous lens options;
- User-swappable color wheels; and
- Advanced color controls.
DPI will begin shipping the E-Vision WUXGA 7500 eary in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The HIGHlite 660 3D projectors feature compact dual-lamp design and 8,000 lumens of brightness output. Other key features include:
- Advanced Warp and Blend capabilities;
- Support for all 3D standards; and
- Native 1080p or WUXGA resolution.
DPI designed the dual-lamp Mercury series for medium to large-screen professional applications. Key features include:
- Advanced warp and blend capabilities;
- Native 1080p or WUXGA resolution;
- Advanced 3D capabilities; and
- Brightness range between 13,500 and 14,500 lumens, depending on the resolution.
The Mercury series will be available toward the end of 2013.
The company also announced a brightness upgrade to its lampless M-Vision LED projector lineup, which now offers a brightness of more than 1,000 lumens.
