ATLANTA, GA (August 11, 2009) - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, has created a fully-automated cost of ownership calculator for the AV industry. The calculator fulfills numerous requests from AV integrators in both Commercial AV and Home Cinema channels. The defining article and cost of ownership calculator can be viewed on Digital Projection's website by visiting http://www.digitalprojection.com/efficiency.
Given the current economic climate, purchase decisions need to be based not just on the initial purchase price of the product, but also on the long-term cost of ownership, as the combination of the two defines the actual cost of owning and operating any product. The cost of ownership calculator acts as a simplified, comprehensive tool, taking into consideration the following data: initial purchase price, lamp replacements, scheduled maintenance, miscellaneous consumables and cost of power.
Digital Projection International offers an extraordinary array of over 40 single-chip projectors, as well as over 30 powerful 3-chip DLP® displays. The company will be showing their entire range of efficient Home Entertainment projection displays at CEDIA â€˜09, booth #519, from September 9-13, 2009.
