Digital Projection Debuts Native 2.35:1 Projector


Digital_Projection_dVision_Scope_1080p_projector.jpgDigital Projection International just announced the dVision Scope 1080p, a native 2:35:1 precision DLP projector delivering reportedly over 2.75 million pixels of imagery when scope HD content is displayed. The 2560 x 1080 dVision Scope delivers a 1080p solution for 2.35:1 aspect content without optical stretching, and without the need for an anamorphic lens solution.

DPI's single-chip dVision Scope 1080p delivers 2.75 million pixels of detail due to its 2560 x 1080 resolution. Having more pixels than a traditional 1920 x 1080 display ensures that no optical stretching is needed to achieve a 2:35:1 aspect ratio.

The dVision Scope 1080p presents a solution for moving between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 aspect ratio content (or any content wider than 1.78). Traditionally, an anamorphic lens has been required in order to move between different aspect ratios while displaying constant image height. While this approach produces solid results, anamorphic lens solutions add significant cost, as well as mechanical and optical complexity to a home theater system. Also, anamorphic optics consume about 10% of the projector's brightness while also reducing the contrast ratio.

No anamorphic optics are required when the dVision Scope 1080p projector is employed in a constant height application. When 1.78 content is being viewed, that content is simply displayed by the projector at native 1080p resolution. When wider aspect ratio content is presented, the wider content continues to be displayed at 1080 pixels of vertical resolution, so the vertical height of the image is maintained. Horizontally, the image is re-sized to as much as 2560 pixels, depending on the aspect ratio of the source being displayed. The projector's aspect ratio is thus adjusted so that the wider content is presented with increased horizontal resolution.
