DreamVision just debuted the Yunzi Series, a new projector line up. Yunzi Family, Yunzi 1, Yunzi 2 and Yunzi 3 are four models that integrate many of the latest technologies available on the market such as 3D projection.
The new three-chip system utilized on the Yunzi Series features a trio of 1080p Full-HD panels at a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. DreamVision claims a 50,000:1 (Yunzi Family and Yunzi 1), 90,000:1 (Yunzi 2) and a 130,000:1 native contrast ratio (Yunzi 3) through an improved light engine. Reaching 1300 ansi lumens in normal mode, the Yunzi can now accommodate wider screens and brightness-demanding 3D technology.
The Crystal Motion algorithm is a frame interpolation method, which attempts to eliminate motion blur or artifacts. The new projectors also employ DreamVision's new True Cinema Black enhancement for better rendition of blacks and dark colors.
For the DreamVision R&D team it is important to do 3D the right way, without sacrificing the performance with regular 2D content. Therefore the DreamVision team has prepared two kinds of projector packs: the active 3D packs and the passive 3D packs.
In the active 3D packs, the active-shutter glasses benefit fast-response liquid crystal lenses to create the best image quality without ghosting wherever you sit, higher brightness, more natural colors and great durability.
The benefits of the Dreamvision B.E.S.T. Passive 3D packs are numerous. First of all, the passive 3D glasses are lighter (around 10g), less expensive and more comfortable. The picture quality has been improved: more brightness, more details and more accurate colors. The spectators feel less dizziness, eye strain and headache than with active 3D solutions. Last but not least, because it does not require stacking two projectors together, the overall budget of the Dreamvision solution is lower than with other passive 3D solutions.
While the Yunzi is a turn-key, single-box solution, it is also available with the optional 2.35 Theatre System kit that will accommodate the most demanding installations. By featuring a true Cinemascope projection (2.35:1 to 2.40:1 native aspect ratio), the user can simply switch between HDTV and Cinemascope with the touch of a button.
CMS functions (Color Management System for color calibration) are accessible for the advanced installers of Yunzi 1, 2 3. On Yunzi 2 and 3, a THX Mode and an Expert Calibration Menu (via RS232) have been added and optimized for movie watching in a dedicated dark cinema room.
Thanks to a new airflow design, a new lamp and a better management of the power, the Yunzi Series are the quietest projectors by DreamVision ever. T he lamp lifetime has been increased by 30%, up to 4,000 hours, making the Yunzi Series greener and more economic in the long run.
