DPI Rolls Out New Cine, dVision PJ Models

9/08/2011 12:01:00 AM Eastern

INDIANAPOLIS — Digital Projection International
(booth 4340) will take the wraps off a number of highperformance
projectors, including new 3D offerings.

It also announced a new three-year parts and labor
warranty policy, covering projectors and accessories
employed in standard-use applications.

The program applies to every DPI projector and accessory
delivered after June 15, 2011, DPI said.

Meanwhile, the company is showing two additions
to its DLP Highlite Cine series, distinguish by high light
output.

The Cine 330 model features 4,500 lumens of
brightness while the Highlite Cine 660 offers 8,000
lumens of brightness. Prices for the models begin at
$23,995 and vary by options used.

Both models join the Highlite Cine 260 in the line.

The new models are said to be equally suited to
both dedicated theaters and normal ambient-light living
spaces.

Both are capable of excellent imagery on screen
sizes measuring up to 12 feet wide, DPI said.

The units are designed to deliver DLP 3-chip image
fidelity for a variety of home applications with medium
to large screens, at a price point that competes with
top-end single-chip solutions.

Installation is flexible due to the Highlite Cine’s compact
chassis design and lens-shift range of 120 percent
vertical and 30 percent horizontal.

Multiple lens options provide further flexibility, with
0.77 and 1.16:1 fixed lenses plus zoom lenses with
throw ratios ranging from 1.45 to 6.76:1, DPI said.

Connectivity includes two HDMI inputs on the
Highlite Cine 330 and one on the Cine 660, as well
as RGB via D-15, component, composite and S-Video
inputs.

DPI will also unveil the dVision 35-1080p 3D, which
is billed as a dual-lamp, single-chip DLP 3D projector.

The projector is said to be equally capable of delivering
both active and passive-glasses-based 3D pictures,
and produces 4,500 lumens of brightness.

The unit’s oversized, precision optics are said to
lend installers extra flexibility in system mounting.

It employs two 300-watt lamps with a user-adjustable
iris, allowing optimization of black levels balanced against
a maximum light output of 4,500 lumens. Synchronization
with 3D glasses can be done either via IR or DLP link.

In addition, for larger-audience 3D applications,
the dVision 3D can be outfitted
with an optional LCD modulator to
be used in tandem with a silver screen
and inexpensive passive 3D glasses,
DPI said.

Other key features include dual color
wheels, X-port architecture to simplify
upgrading input cards, and full 1,920 by
1080p HD resolution at a 120Hz refresh
rate.

Seven lens options and easy ceilingor
table-mounting hardware are available
for the dVision 35-1080p 3D.

Prior to the show, the company announced
the M-Vision Cine 3D with
DLP DarkChip technology for screens
up to 14 feet wide, as well as bright 2D
imagery for screens up to 20 feet wide.
The M-Vision Cine 3D is priced between
$17,995 and $18,495, depending
on the lens selected.

Both fixed- and zoom-lens options
are available for the M-Vision Cine
3D, allowing for expanded installation
flexibility.

Brightness is listed at 5,500 lumens.

Installation is accommodated by a
lightweight chassis design, and lensshift
range of 30 percent horizontal and
120 percent vertical. Multiple easy-tochange
lens options provide further
flexibility, with throw ratios ranging from
1.25 to 3.0:1, DPI said. A fixed lens with
0.73:1 throw ratio is also available. Connectivity
includes two HDMI inputs, as
well as RGB via D-15, component, composite
and S-Video inputs.
