ATLANTA, GA – InfoComm 2011 - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of the new, high-performance HIGHlite Cine 660 displays. This compact dual-lamp, 8,000 lumen platform incorporates image Warp and Blend capabilities, native 1920 x 1080 (1080p) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, bright, sharp optics and a host of professional features to suit a wide range of commercial applications. Every HIGHlite Cine 660 projector delivers brilliant image fidelity through DPI's expert implementation of Texas Instruments' 3-chip DLP® technology. Conservatively priced for such application-enabling solutions, the HIGHlite Cine 660 series continues DPI's legacy of delivering powerful and efficient displays for every venue.
The HIGHlite Cine 1080p-660 and HIGHlite Cine WUXGA-660 make 3-chip DLP® performance available in a compact, cost effective chassis that produces dazzlingly bright, saturated images and powerful video processing. Utilizing DPI's new, advanced electronics, both HIGHlite Cine 660 models enlist advanced geometry correction, delivering accurate warp map generation via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector's electronics. On board implementation of Pincushion & Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and Image Rotation are also standard in the new HIGHlite 660 displays.
High quality edge blending and multi-projector tiling are equally robust 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 images are displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the HIGHlite 660'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 image and enables blending for the appropriate edges.
Though overall image quality is top priority, single stage scaling within the HIGHlite Cine 660 models assures the accuracy of scaled imagery through a simple and straightforward process. Resizing and Warp functions are carried out in a single stage process, maximizing the clarity of the resulting image. Furthermore, when operating Blend in conjunction with Warp, the processing will automatically superimpose the warped-blend map onto the geometrically corrected image.
The numerous new capabilities perfectly complement other legacy characteristics that have made DPI's precision displays the go-to standard for every commercial venue for almost 15 years. With a light output of 8,000 lumens, the new HIGHlite Cine 660 projectors employ dual 330 watt high intensity discharge lamps for incredibly bright imagery, making them suitable for a wide variety of demanding applications. DPI's ColorMaxâ„¢ 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 or blended applications. A remarkable range of lens shift allows for broad installation flexibility, augmented by a wide fixed and zoom lens array with throw ratios ranging from .77 to 6.76:1.
