Cost and performance perfectly align with Digital Projection’s new Mercury series of professional displays

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a brand-new, conservatively priced yet remarkably capable 3-chip product line. The new dual-lamp Mercury platform incorporates advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, native 1920 x 1080 (1080p) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, advanced 3D capabilities and a host of professional features to suit a wide range of commercial applications. A brightness range between 13,500 and 14,500 lumens, depending on the resolution, makes the Mercury 930 3D series ideal high-brightness imaging solutions for a multitude of medium to large-screen professional applications. Mercury series projectors will be available towards the end of 2013.

Mercury 930 1080p 3D and Mercury 930 WUXGA 3D projectors make 3-chip DLP® performance available in a compact yet boldly capable chassis that produces dazzlingly bright, saturated images and powerful video processing. Utilizing DPI’s latest Pro Series 3 electronics, both Mercury 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 Mercury 930 3D 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 Mercury 930 3D’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.

Image scaling within the Mercury 930 3D 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 over 15 years. With a light output between 13,500 and 14,500 lumens, the new Mercury 930 3D projectors employ dual 465 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 .67 to 10:36:1.

Digital Projection Expands Brightness of Single-Chip LED Projector Series with New M-Vision LED 1000

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a highly-anticipated brightness upgrade to their lampless M-Vision LED projector lineup. By combining engineering innovation, new LED illuminators and color gamut expansion techniques, DPI’s M-Vision LED displays now deliver luminance breaking the 1,000 lumen threshold. Priced at $10,995 MSRP, DPI offers an unparalleled variety of LED projectors for command and control, professional and simulation applications. In addition to the higher brightness, DPI’s LED displays continue to deliver Lifetime Illumination™, providing a virtually maintenance-free imaging solution that never requires a lamp replacement.

Though often measured as less bright than many lamp-based projectors, LED projection systems are perceived by the viewer as being much brighter than their measured luminance specifications, thanks in part to the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect (H-K effect). The International Electrotechnical Commission defines the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect as, “A change in brightness of perceived color produced by increasing the purity of a color stimulus while keeping its luminance constant within the range of photopic vision.” In layman’s terms, the H-K effect describes a situation whereby if two color stimuli sources with the same luminance are compared, the perceived brightness induced by the color stimuli of higher purity will be higher than that of lower purity. LED illuminated projectors produce extraordinarily high color purity and saturation, thus appearing brighter than a lamp-based display with similar measured lumen specifications.

LED projectors are ideal for critical 24/7 projection applications, as well as any application needing long-life projection systems with unmatched color saturation, lumen maintenance and color stability. As LED projectors do not enlist a traditional lamp, applications utilizing DPI’s higher-lumen M-Vision LED and dVision LED displays will benefit from their Lifetime Illumination™ 60,000+ hour lifespan. DPI’s Lifetime Illumination™ certification ensures that their LED projectors will deliver many years of consistent, engaging and virtually maintenance-free imagery for the application in which they’re installed. Providing 3-chip color saturation from small-form single chip displays, M-Vision LED and dVision LED displays present powerful, capable solutions for a variety of commercial and residential applications including command and control, home media, visualization and simulation where image quality, long-life and low long-term cost of ownership are equally valued.

A combination of consistently stable, long-term light output and a supremely low-maintenance illumination system defines DPI’s LED display solutions. In each of Digital Projection’s LED displays, the RGB-based LED illumination system eliminates the need for a color wheel to produce primary colors. Instead, red, green and blue LED’s produce primary color illumination, rendering a color gamut and color saturation similar to that of a 3-chip DLP projector with no color wheel artifacts. Additionally, certain LED displays in DPI’s product line feature their FastFrame technology, which assures fast-moving content appears remarkably sharp and free of motion smear – an especially vital capability for simulation applications. As is the case with every projector in their catalog, DPI’s LED displays utilize Texas Instruments’ DarkChip DLP technology, ensuring unmatched black levels, RGB bit depth and dynamic range.

Clay Paky Lighting Joins the Dave Matthews Band For Summer Tour

The Dave Matthews Band hits the road for an extensive national tour with Clay Paky lighting along for the ride.

The band commences its 45-date cross-country swing in mid-May and wraps after Labor Day. They will be supporting last year’s hit LP, “Away From The World.”

Theatrical Media Services is providing the lighting gear and consoles for design company and video vendor Filiment Productions. Fenton Williams is the production designer and lighting designer for the tour; Aaron Stinebrink is the lighting programmer and designer.

“The overall concept is to continually augment the look of the show as the evening progresses,” says Stinebrink. “Everything is mounted on automated curved trusses that can move around during the show. We also have a large curved LED videowall upstage.”

Twelve Clay Paky Sharpy Wash lights hang from the sub grid and shine through all the trusses. A dozen Sharpys are positioned above the videowall and 12 more act as floor lights. Fourteen Alpha Spot HPE 1500s are integrated throughout the five automated trusses.

“We chose the Sharpys for the same reason everybody does: They have fantastic light output, speed, great colors and effects. It’s a versatile light that everyone uses,” Stinebrink explains. “The Sharpy Washes also offer a small footprint, speed and brightness, and they provide a great zoom and the ability to go from a nice tight beam to a wide wash.”

He notes that the Alpha spots were selected “because of their output with a 1500W lamp plus two irises and a fantastic zoom. It’s a very good light – far superior to others on the market.”

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.

George Masek, A.C.T Lighting’s Vice President, Automated Lighting, adds, “We’ve known Fenton, Aaron, and the Dave Matthews team for a number of years and they are always a pleasure to work with. It was nice to see that Aaron and the TMS staff appreciate the same things that we do about the Sharpy, Sharpy Wash, and Alpha Spot HPE 1500. We’re very pleased that we were able to offer fixtures that are new and exciting to them.”

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, adds, “Another great designer/musician team who have embraced our new Sharpy Wash units! We’re thrilled that Aaron has incorporate so many of our lights into this tour..”

Yamaha CL5 Struts Its Stuff with Charbonneau on The Offspring Live Recording

BUENA PARK, Calif.— The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Orange County, California, formed in 1984. Recently, the band asked engineer Ian Charbonneau to record and mix an upcoming web release. The recording took place in Warsaw, Poland at the Orange Warsaw Festival held at Narodowy Stadium. Charbonneau has worked with the band for the past five years, recording and mixing live TV, Webcast or Radio broadcast they may do Internationally. His last name may sound familiar, as he is the son of LeMobile Remote Recording Studio owner, and mix engineer, Guy Charbonneau. The younger Charbonneau also works on LeMobile’s Le-Fly-Pak system that utilizes a Yamaha DM2000 digital audio console for live broadcast mixing.

“Doing live projects on the road is always a lot of fun and can be very challenging, not necessarily knowing which console and set up I will have to work with. It is always different. A big part of the challenge comes from the very little prepping time and often without any sound check, you just got to nail it”, states the younger Charbonneau. “In the last few years, I’ve expended my own business in consulting, recording and mixing for artists, managements and labels when doing live TV, webcast or broadcast appearances around the globe. It gives both artists and production teams great assurance that someone is looking out for them. As most know, when doing live projects, there’s only one chance of getting things right. I was excited when I found out for this particular project, I would have the opportunity to use the new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console.”

The Poland set up consisted of two consoles, the CL5 used as the main console and a Yamaha DM2000 for backup purposes, all recorded via Nuendo Live. “I chose to try out the new CL5 even though I’m very familiar with the DM2000. I was quite pleased with how easy it was to get around this console,” says Charbonneau. “Very simple and logical layout, I find some digital console today seem to have lost their logic with too many places to do the same things, busy layouts or too many menus and layers like trying to please everyone. It is often too easy to get lost or make mistakes. The CL5 seemed to have been very well thought out.

As for sound, Charbonneau said he was also happy with what he heard. “It was really responsive; I learned over the years working with our DM2000 and other digital consoles that you often have to exaggerate a little when EQing and compressing. The CL5 seemed more natural. I was also impressed on the integration of Nuendo Live; it worked flawlessly. The Dante networking and Rio rack did great. I would be curious to try a CL5 with Le Mobile’s Fly-Pak. Great job on the new console, Yamaha!”

Jones Mobile Installs 10 New FUJINON Lenses on Vision HD Mobile Unit

Wayne, N.J. – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division is announcing that Jones Mobile Television—a video production company based in North Little Rock—installed 10 new FUJINON HDTV lenses on VisionHD, its 51-foot expanding mobile unit that was recently upgraded to HD.

The HD lens package—to be used with new Sony HDC-2400 3G multi-format HD camera systems—includes: four FUJINON XA88x8.8BESM and two FUJINON XA77x9.5BESM HDTV big box lenses, three HA23x7.6BERM and one HA14x4.5BERM Premier Series HD ENG field lenses.

“The video truck business is extremely demanding,” said Bob Derryberry, president of Jones Mobile Television, founded in 1993. “Our network clients have high expectations. With so much riding on major sports, entertainment, and corporate events, it’s critical to have video acquisition gear that offers superior HD picture quality and dependable performance,”

As part of an extensive $3 million upgrade, VisionHD’s interior was gutted and rebuilt as a multi-format HD truck. The truck’s onboard systems now include: a Grass Valley Kayenne switcher, Chyron Duet Hyper X3 live graphics system, Miranda and Matrox multi-viewer flat screen monitor walls, PESA Cheetah router, and multiple EVS systems for slow motion, editing, and multi-channel playback.

The truck previously carried FUJINON SD lenses that had been in service for about 13 years. According to Derryberry, “The lenses were still in very good working order when we sold them to another company for use in their studio. That speaks volumes about FUJINON lenses. Even after using them in extreme weather conditions, if you maintain them properly, they will last you many years.”

Designed for use at large venues and sporting events, the XA88x8.8BESM is an HD telephoto “big box” field lens with an 88x zoom range. Designed for 2/3-inch cameras, the XA88x8.8BESM offers focal lengths of 8.8-777mm at 1X and 17.6-1554mm with the 2X extender.

The XA77x9.5BESM telephoto field lens, which is also a 2/3-inch big box HD lens, offers focal lengths of 9.5-732mm at 1X, and 19.0-1464mm with the 2X extender. Both DigiPower big box style lenses feature FUJINON’s exclusive aspheric technology, anti-fogging and optical stabilization, as well as EBC coating to reduce ghosting and flare and increase light transmission. The Premier Series HD ENG style lenses both offer 2X extenders and DigiPower servo technology.

“These ENG lenses complement the big box lenses perfectly,” Derryberry said. “The picture quality they produce is fantastic, and you can’t tell the difference when you’re intercutting shots from the big box and ENG lenses together.

“In my more than 30 years in broadcast television, I’ve come to know and trust FUJINON lenses, and I value the exceptional service and support I’ve received from our sales rep Dave Waddell and his colleagues over the years,” said Derryberry. “Because we can count on FUJINON, our clients can count on us.”
