ATLANTA, GA, (October 10, 2006) – Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, officially introduced its latest 3-chip DLP™ Professional Series projectors, the HIGHlite 10000Dsx+ and HIGHlite 16000Dsx+.
The new 1400×1050 resolution projectors offer increased brightness from previous models, due to optical system enhancements and a higher efficiency 2-Kilowatt xenon lamp. The HIGHlite 10000Dsx+ delivers 9,500 ANSI lumens at 2000:1 contrast, while the 16000Dsx+ produces 13,000 ANSI lumens at 1800:1 contrast. Along with the high reliability, long-life and gentle lumen-maintenance-curve that was characteristic of the previous lamp, the new lamp also delivers better lumen/watt performance. Additionally, the new lamp and lamp module are backwards compatible with DP’s previous HIGHlite Professional series models.
HIGHlite Professional Series projectors are employed for a wide range of large screen and critical display applications. Equipped with liquid cooling – for the quietest operation in its class – the HIGHlite Pro projectors can be installed in noise sensitive environments for the accurate display of any video, HD or computer source. Four-side soft-edge blend is standard, and the units can be customized to include advanced options such as seamless cross-fade and user-definable geometric warp. Active stereo display (3D) at resolutions up to 1400 x 1050 at 96 Hz is also supported.
“Over the past 2 ½ years, the robust and reliable HIGHlite Professional Series projectors have been placed into some of the largest shows and venues that grace this industry”, stated Chuck Collins, Senior Market Development Manager for DPI. “Significant fleets of HIGHlites are at work within major staging industry events, and with respect to permanent installations, HIGHlites have been used for applications as diverse as 3D visualization, education, command and control, film festivals, major Las Vegas shows, religious venues and even cinema applications. We are very pleased to introduce these new and more powerful HIGHlite models to our dealers, stagers and end users.”
The entire lineup of Digital Projection’s Pro Series projectors, including the previously introduced HIGHlite 14000HD, share precise mechanical configuration and options, including DPI’s exclusive rigging and stacking system with integrated pitch, roll and yaw adjustments. This design renders the projectors ready to rig or stack right out of the transit case, saving time and manpower during system integration and also simplifying critical alignment when edge-matching or overlaying multiple projectors. A wide selection of high quality optics, all with extensive lens shift capability, provides the flexibility to configure the HIGHlite Pro projectors for use in nearly any venue. The HIGHlite 10000Dsx+ ($59,995 MSRP) and HIGHlite 16000Dsx+ ($69,995 MSRP) will begin shipping in November 2006.
