Credit: Delaware North Companies/Joe Cascio

When Space Shuttle AtlantisSM, the newest attraction at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Cape Canaveral, Fla., opens to the public on June 29, a new chapter in the story of interactive AV design for the themed entertainment industry will be written. The attraction was designed by PGAV and installed by Electrosonic. projectiondesign® high-performance projectors are used in the pre-show visitor area and various exhibit areas to engage, enthral and entertain audiences.

The story of the Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction dates back to 2010, when Delaware North and PGAV in partnership with NASA designed and created gave PGAV Destinations a simple brief: to design and create the world’s premiere space exploration attraction. PGAV in turn engaged Electrosonic in a four-phase design and consulting process.

As is now commonplace at big attractions, on entering the building visitors are treated to a multimedia pre-show that provides the historical context for the exhibits they are about to see. The Atlantis pre-show features some 4 projectiondesign F35 wqxga video projectors, edge-blended to form an immersive experience, with content being served by individual, multi-head, custom-configured Delta media servers from 7thSense Design.

16 projectiondesign F32 projectors, running in 1920 x 1200 resolution and edge-blended in groups of four, are used to add video content for the four ‘arches’ that surround the Shuttle itself.

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.
