Display Development Announces Compact DCI Certified Systems

Batavia, NY—June 2013—Display Development, originator of the Residential Architectural Video System category, proudly announces two compact, true cinema solutions. The Digital Film 4 (DF4) and Digital Film 5 (DF5) systems deliver stunning 2K DCI performance with optional 3D upgrade, coupled with a powerful Xenon lamp, that provides output levels up to 10,000 lumens, all wrapped up in a chassis just under 28 inches deep.

“The Digital Film Series models are the high fidelity performance solution when nothing short of a true movie theater experience will do,” says Jim Burns, co-founder and president of Display Development. “The DF4 and DF5 systems are compact in size and both are extremely capable of providing sufficient output for bright rooms with acoustically transparent screens, as well as superb 3D operation. With the added flexibility these new models offer, we are thrilled to expand true digital cinema opportunities for our dealers.”

The Digital Film systems utilize the superior 16-bit processing required by the Digital Cinema Initiative for True Cinema Projectors. The systems’ powerful Xenon lamps offer impressive consistency, extending color gamut while vastly improving image fidelity with wider dynamics and color fidelity that are simply unmatched by 2- or 4-lamp UHP systems.

The optional 3D upgrade, available with both models, rivals the level of Dolby 3D performance found in many of the world’s best theaters. The compact DF systems provide varying levels of performance and installation options, along with ability to process 3D images from DCI servers (when available), as well as provide 3D perfection from consumer Blu-ray Discs today—without requiring special screen materials.

Available now, both models include Display Development’s VP-100 Video Processor and Smart Cooling System. The DF4 uses the VariScope lens allowing for multiple screen memories without the need of an anamorphic lens, while the DF5 is paired with a fixed image width lens.

Digital Film 4 and 5 features:
• True Digital Cinema System with 16-bit electronics for improved dynamic range
• Xenon lamps provide ideal gamut for True Cinema Color Fidelity
• 9,000 10,000 Lumens performance from a single lamp
• VariScope for multiple screen size memories (no anamorphic lens needed)
• 3D upgrades available for both Dolby Cinema or active shutter systems
• Compact design 27.1” W x 15.6” H x 27.4” D

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Pricing:
Digital Film 4: USD $89,000.00
Digital Film 5: USD $80,000.00

Digital Projection unveils 20,000 lumen TITAN Quad 2000 ‘Super Quad’ series

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a monumental brightness expansion of their flagship TITAN projector line with the 20,000 lumen TITAN Quad 2000 series. Termed the ‘Super Quad,’ the Quad 2000 platform incorporates DPI’s advanced image Warp and Blend capabilities, three native resolutions, active 3D connectivity, and a host of professional features to suit any rigorous commercial or staging application imaginable. The TITAN Quad 2000 platform marks the world’s first projectors of this brightness, in a chassis with such a small form factor. ‘Super Quad’ projectors are already shipping and are available today.

Delivering 20,000 lumens of dazzling brightness, the new ‘Super Quad’ projectors reveal powerful 3-chip DLP® performance available in an incredibly rugged, compact chassis. Utilizing DPI’s new, advanced electronics, all TITAN Quad 2000 models provide the user with the ability to make extensive geometric warp correction via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight warp maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector’s electronics. On board adjustments for Pincushion, Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and even Image Rotation, are also standard in the new TITAN Quad 2000 displays.

Superbly capable edge blending and multi-projector tiling are provided 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 image content is displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the TITAN Quad 2000’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 signal to be displayed by each projector in the array, and enables blending for the appropriate edges.

TITAN Quad 2000 displays are equipped with DPI’s exclusive 3D advances that further extend the remarkable flexibility engineered within each TITAN 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.

Announced as an evolution of the 16,000 lumen TITAN Quad displays introduced by Digital Projection at InfoComm 2011, the capabilities of the remarkably powerful ‘Super Quad’ displays perfectly complement other revolutionary technologies that have made DPI’s precision displays the go-to standard for commercial venues for over 15 years. TITAN Quad 2000 series projectors employ four 465 watt high intensity discharge lamps to produce powerfully bright imagery, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding medium and large venue 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 / blended applications.
