Digital Projection launches fully 3D-enabled, budget-minded 3-chip HIGHlite displays

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of fully 3D-enabled, high-performance HIGHlite 660 3D projectors. This compact dual-lamp, 8,000 lumen platform incorporates advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, support for all 3D standards, 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 3D 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 660 3D series continues DPI’s legacy of delivering powerful and efficient displays for every venue.

The HIGHlite 1080p-660 3D and HIGHlite WUXGA-660 3D 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 660 3D 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.

HIGHlite 660 3D projectors are equipped with DPI’s exclusive 3D advances that further extend the remarkable flexibility engineered within each HIGHlite display. Applications with 120 Hz native sources can utilize the High Bandwidth Input, eliminating the need for frame doubling. For 60 Hz 3D applications, DPI’s built-in Dual Flash Processing™ enables distribution of 3D content via 60 Hz formats by frame-doubling the signal within the projector. This produces the low flicker image characteristics of a native 120 Hz source without the infrastructure costs associated with distributing and switching ultra-high bandwidth signals.

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, scaling within the HIGHlite 660 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 of 8,000 lumens, the new HIGHlite 660 3D 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.

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.

Science, film and rugged AV combine to empower tornado-affected regions

Atlanta, Georgia – 3/18/2013 – Giant Screen Films and D3D Cinema are on a mission to educate.  This is not your typical scholarly pursuit, however, as their goal involves traveling to remote regions and helping to empower and inspire young people in communities affected by a tornado’s destructive power.  Luckily, this group brings extraordinary tools to the task at hand, including a nationally-recognized storm-chasing specialist, some of the world’s leading tornado researchers, steel-clad custom weather vehicles and a 10,000 lumen, remarkably rugged DPI projector.

The project is supported by a National Science Foundation grant, awarded to produce a film titled Tornado Alley.  The documentary features filmmaker Sean Casey, star of the television series Storm Chasers, and the researchers of VORTEX2, the most ambitious tornado research mission ever undertaken, in their attempts to collect footage and unprecedented data from the heart of a tornado.  Enlisting a mobile Doppler radar station, a number of custom-built vehicular juggernauts fortified to withstand remarkable winds and debris, and custom-created weather measurement devices, the group patrols the traditional ‘tornado alley’ of the central U.S. in search of the perfect storm. 

More than simply a thrill-seeking pursuit, the captivating chases depicted in the film are critical attempts to discover the dynamics and the habits of such an extreme weather system—secrets that could improve warnings and save lives. After all, the goal of the film is to help audiences understand and appreciate the nature of severe weather and the work of storm chasing scientists. But in developing the film and its educational outreach, producers at Giant Screen Films realized that there was a distinctly human side to the story that needed further attention.

Tornado Alley was produced for and exhibited in large-screen, permanent theaters found in the science centers and museums of metropolitan cities.  Basically, in the exact opposite environments of where tornadoes are actually present.  These museum partners have the resources and expertise to build on the film’s content, planning special programs, hosting scientists, and creating meaningful learning experiences. But the project team recognized that the communities most affected by severe weather—and perhaps the best places to inspire future generations of scientists—were largely rural, remote, and lacking informal learning environments like science museums. The production team decided to propose an innovating outreach strategy to the National Science Foundation: using a traveling digital 3D projector, the project would deliver the Tornado Alley experience to communities across the heartland.

In late 2011, the NSF-funded Tornado Alley outreach program began visiting remote regions throughout the central U.S.  The American Red Cross and FEMA have also helped bring their expertise in safety and preparedness to this program, while other partners including the United Way, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition have helped identify communities interested in hosting the team. Deborah Raksany,vice president of development and partnerships at Giant Screen Films, explained, “The goal of the outreach program is to create an immersive theater experience, and an intimate, in-person learning experience, in communities that lack traditional educational resources.”  Raksany continued, “We hope that the opportunity to connect with people who are passionate about understanding severe weather gives these communities a forum to explore their experiences, and perhaps provides the inspiration for some young people to join the research efforts that will save lives in the future.”

The mobile experience includes one of the fortified vehicles, advanced weather measurement devices, key personnel from the film and a staging-grade TITAN dual-lamp 1080p 3D projector from Digital Projection International (DPI).  During these presentations, an abbreviated version of the 3D film is shown, followed by insight and discussion.  “At sites that are underserved or in the process of recovery from a weather event, traditional classroom tools—let alone a film projector—are resources that can’t be taken for granted. In those cases, a 3D film is a special addition to the experience,” explained Raksany.  Attendees also get hands-on interaction with the mobile Doppler studio and fortified vehicle. 

Scott Fauteux, senior operations and support manager for D3D Cinema, is tasked with setting up a functional screening environment in every new location, regardless of the environment and lack of resources available.  “DPI’s TITAN projector was chosen for its high brightness, rugged design and compatibility with all types of 3D.”  The fact that the TITAN runs on 110v power also expands the flexibility and durability inherent in the display.  “Thanks to the TITAN’s brightness, I’ve turned warehouses, outdoor spaces, and even the sides of buildings into functional viewing spaces.”  Raksany elaborated on Fauteux’s comments, stating, “The nature of ‘cinema’ is changing rapidly, and we’re excited to realize that it’s now possible to deliver an immersive, inspiring experience almost anywhere with the right tools.”

With support from the National Science Foundation and a network of community partners, the project has held events across the heartland, with screenings at a diversity of venues, from schools and community centers to warehouses and home improvement stores, What each event has in common is the opportunity for learning, exchange, and in some cases, healing. Brian Crouse, executive director of the Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition and vice president of education for the Missouri Chamber of Commerce, explained, “In places like Joplin, the story doesn’t end with the tornado that ravaged the city. People are rebuilding and strengthening the community in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Programs like the Tornado Alley outreach campaign, that bring inspiration and much-needed learning experiences to our young people, are a meaningful part of that recovery.”

More than a House of Worship; Revolution Church creates an inspiring home for growing congregation

Revolution Church had a dream: to create a permanent home for a rapidly expanding fellowship that would, step by step, adapt to most effectively spread the gospel. However, the founding members were concerned that moving directly into a massive space might compromise the intimacy and focus that had been built over years of worship in small, improvised locations. With this in mind, the church created and implemented a staged growth plan that delivers immediate impact through an immersive yet budget-conscious audio and video experience. Additionally, Revolution Church can expand their current capabilities to serve future members without losing their cherished community feel.



As the decision to design and inhabit a permanent worship location was a massive leap of faith, Revolution Church relied on the renowned insight of both Cornerstone Media and New Ground consulting groups. Once the key audio and video components were tentatively specified, key team members from the church attended WFX, the annual worship facilities expo, to see live product demonstrations and meet some of the manufacturers. Chad Elliot, executive pastor for Revolution Church, mentioned “how impressed we all were with Digital Projection International’s relationship-oriented approach,” at that particular meeting. After WFX, final decisions were made on the preferred AV components.



Currently, the main sanctuary contains 750 seats, and features a stage and large Da-lite screen that is illuminated by Digital Projection International (DPI)’s 8,000 lumen E-Vision 1080p 8000 projector. Elliot explained, “The main sanctuary is quite wide, and we wanted to bring the congregation’s attention to a central location. Thus the single large impact screen above the stage.” With overall project cost being a major factor, the E-Vision 8000 fulfilled both the budget and performance requirements. When it’s time to activate their next stage of expansion, Revolution will finish a balcony that will add 400 seats to the venue. At that time, a larger central screen will serve as a beacon above the stage, while flanking screens on the left and right will serve those in the balcony.



Brian Damerow, media director for Revolution Church, commented, “In our temporary space we used lower-end projectors with limited brightness and impact. We knew what sort of experience we wanted to deliver on Sundays, but had few options until we moved.” Today, the church uses a BlackMagic switcher to route live video, custom-created messaging, congregation announcements and thematically-geared imagery throughout the facility. So that every attendee has an unhindered sight line, the E-Vision 1080p 8000 delivers virtually latency-free IMAG to the central screen above the stage.

After only three weeks in the new space, Revolution Church is already seeing a huge return on their expansion. “Previously,” said Elliot, “we would serve less than 1,100 members on a given Sunday. Now, there’s a huge buzz in the community regarding what we’re doing, and it’s led to a surge in membership.” In fact, the new space has hosted over 1,700 people every Sunday for the last three weeks. To ensure that everyone who wants to attend will have ample opportunity, the church is moving from two Sunday services to three as of their grand opening on March 3, 2013.

With so much at stake in this ambitious step forward, Revolution Church was careful to select only manufacturer partners that seemed to take their project to heart. “We instantly felt understood by the DPI team, and the personal connection put us at ease,” remarked Damerow. “True to form, we had to switch a lens on the E-Vision at the time of installation, and we had the new lens almost immediately. DPI’s attention to such a small detail proved to us that they care about our project as much as we do.”

Digital Projection’s new HIGHlite 330-3D reveals new benchmark in precise 3-chip DLP performance, price

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the immediate availability of their powerful, value-driven HIGHlite Cine 330-3D projectors. Delivering up to 5,500 lumens of brilliant imagery, the new 3-chip DLP enabled HIGHlite Cine 330-3D models present a compelling projection solution for immersive 3D applications with screens up to 14’ wide, as well as 2D applications for screens 20’ and beyond. Two new models are available: the high brightness HIGHlite Cine 330-3D delivering 5,500 lumens, and the high contrast HIGHlite Cine 330-3D-HC delivering 3,000 lumens and greater than 20,000:1 contrast. With MSRP’s starting at $24,995, the new HIGHlite Cine 330-3D projectors can be configured with fixed or zoom lens options, allowing for expanded installation flexibility.

In addition to brilliant and saturated color, dynamic contrast and crisp resolution, brightness is an essential characteristic when selecting a projector for any commercial venue. Delivering up to 5,500 lumens, the new HIGHlite Cine 330-3D models provide more than enough brightness to thrive in large screen corporate, education and screening rooms with limited ambient light. Additionally, the rugged and high performance HIGHlite Cine 330-3D can bring projection to commercial venues that regularly contend with higher levels of ambient light. Featuring 3-chip DLP imagery, 1080p resolution, broad source connectivity and a compact and quiet chassis, the new HIGHlite Cine 330-3D serves as an optimum solution for commercial applications needing exceptionally bright and accurate 2D and 3D imagery.

Previously, large-format immersive 3D was achieved exclusively through DPI’s 3-chip TITAN and LIGHTNING series displays. Serving as a compliment to these existing 3D products, the HIGHlite Cine 330-3D models introduce native 1080p 3-chip displays to commercial applications for a fraction of the cost. Commercial AV integrators and end-users can now experience flicker-free 3D at a full 120 frames per second while benefitting from the exceptional value of the HIGHlite Cine 3D. Combined with nearly thirty single-chip and 3-chip 3D capable displays already in Digital Projection’s product line, the new HIGHlite Cine 330-3D models extend DPI’s legacy of large screen 3D projection dominance.

Installation flexibility is unmatched due to the HIGHlite Cine 330-3D’s compact chassis design and extraordinary lens shift range of 120% vertical and 30% horizontal. Multiple lens options provide further flexibility, with .77 and 1.16:1 fixed lenses plus zoom lenses with throw ratios ranging from 1.45 – 6.76:1. HIGHlite Cine 330-3D connectivity includes two HDMI inputs, as well as RGB via D-15, component, composite and S-Video inputs. Augmenting these benefits are the overall efficiency and long-life of the lamp system, enabling this new platform to produce beautiful 2D and 3D imagery at the lowest cost of ownership, while also consuming very low power and producing very little heat.
