DPI Launches Four Million Pixel Projector

By |


DPI_dVision_35-WQXGA.gifDigital Projection International (DPI) a manufacturer of projection systems, announces the dVision 35-WQXGA, the first precision DLP projector to deliver over 4 million pixels of imagery.
 

The dVision 35-WQXGA is designed to deliver 1080p resolution as a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, reportedly without the need for an anamorphic lens. The projector delivers this image through a combination of programmable lens control and software.

DPI's single-chip dVision 35-WQXGA allegedly has the highest resolution of any DLP-based product available currently. DPI claims that the image the projector produces is 2560 x 1600 pixels, which would make it nearly twice the resolution of a 1080p projector. The new projector carries the claim that it produces 4,096,000 pixels from a single projector. Over 4,000,000 pixels would result in imagery with more resolution detail and higher small area contrast.

In addition to the pixel density, the dVision 35-WQXGA XC presents its own solution for moving between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 aspect ratio content. Traditionally, an anamorphic lens has been required in order to move between different aspect ratios while displaying constant 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. Additionally, anamorphic optics consume about 10% of the projector's brightness while also reducing the contrast ratio. Bypassing the need for an anamorphic lens with programmable lens control and software, the dVision 35-WQXGA presents an alternative to purchasing and installing a peripheral anamorphic lens.

DPI's dVision 35-WQXGA is available in three different factory installed color wheel sets, allowing the user to select the projector / color wheel combination that provides the best balance of lumens and color depth for their venue. Projector lumens and black level can be further optimized to suit venue conditions through the adjustment of the motorized lens iris. Additionally, the dVision's quick-change motorized lens mount provides a range of horizontal and vertical lens shift, allowing the projectors to be placed in a wide variety of locations in relation to the screen.

DPI will be demonstrating the new dVision 35-WQXGA during the 2010 CEDIA Expo.
