Digital Projection Launches Advanced Warp and Blend Projector Series at InfoComm 2011

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of the new, high-performance HIGHlite Cine 660 displays.

ATLANTA, GA - InfoComm 2011 - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award -winning manufacturer of high -performance projection systems, announces the launch of the new, high -performance HIGHlite Cine 660 displays. This compact dual -lamp, 8,000 lumen platform incorporates image Warp and Blend capabilities, native 1920 x 1080 (1080p) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, bright, sharp optics and a host of professional features to suit a wide range of commercial applications. Every HIGHlite Cine 660 projector delivers brilliant image fidelity through DPI's expert implementation of Texas Instruments' 3 -chip DLP® technology. Conservatively priced for such application -enabling solutions, the HIGHlite Cine 660 series continues DPI's legacy of delivering powerful and efficient displays for every venue.


The HIGHlite Cine 1080p -660 and HIGHlite Cine WUXGA -660 make 3 -chip DLP® performance available in a compact, cost effective chassis that produces dazzlingly bright, saturated images and powerful video processing. Utilizing DPI's new, advanced electronics, both HIGHlite Cine 660 models enlist advanced geometry correction, delivering accurate warp map generation via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector's electronics. On board implementation of Pincushion & Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and Image Rotation are also standard in the new HIGHlite 660 displays.

High quality edge blending and multi -projector tiling are equally robust by way of high bit depth processing that ensures a seamless, contiguous image can be created from multiple projectors. Black Level Uplift in all non -blend areas guarantees uniformity across the screen, even when dark images are displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the HIGHlite 660's onboard tiling function by assigning each projector a position within an image matrix. The video processing then automatically extracts the appropriate segment of the input image and enables blending for the appropriate edges.

Though overall image quality is top priority, single stage scaling within the HIGHlite Cine 660 models assures the accuracy of scaled imagery through a simple and straightforward process. Resizing and Warp functions are carried out in a single stage process, maximizing the clarity of the resulting image. Furthermore, when operating Blend in conjunction with Warp, the processing will automatically superimpose the warped -blend map onto the geometrically corrected image.

The numerous new capabilities perfectly complement other legacy characteristics that have made DPI's precision displays the go -to standard for every commercial venue for almost 15 years. With a light output of 8,000 lumens, the new HIGHlite Cine 660 projectors employ dual 330 watt high intensity discharge lamps for incredibly bright imagery, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding applications. DPI's ColorMax™ technology presents the most flexible color management system available today, and serves as a powerful color calibration tool, whether the installation calls for a single projector or an array of projectors in tiled or blended applications. A remarkable range of lens shift allows for broad installation flexibility, augmented by a wide fixed and zoom lens array with throw ratios ranging from .77 to 6.76:1.

DPI will be demonstrating the new HIGHlite Cine 660 displays, as well as numerous other new single -chip and 3 -chip precision projectors, throughout a newly -designed 60' x 50' booth (#3343) at InfoComm 2011 from June 15 - 17 in Orlando, Florida.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Pr©cis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
