Atlanta, GA (InfoComm 2012) – Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces a major capabilities update to the dual-lamp, high brightness TITAN 660 platform. Previously, the incredibly bright TITAN 660 and TITAN 700 models presented a powerful and rugged 3-chip DLP display with extreme brightness for large screens or high ambient light environments. By graduating to DPI's latest NextGen electronics platform, the new TITAN 660 Pro Series 3 displays now enlist extensive Warp & Blend capabilities, 3G-SDI input compatibility, as well as specific models with high-performance 3D functionality. Delivering up to 12,000 lumens of incredible brightness, depending on the resolution, the TITAN 660 and 660-3D displays are available in SX+, 1080p and WUXGA native resolutions. The new TITAN 660 Pro Series 3 displays will commence shipping in Q2, 2012 and carry an MSRP range between $44,995 and $74,995, depending on native resolution and 3D capability.
With the addition of DPI's latest NextGen electronics, TITAN 660 and 660-3D displays now become thoroughly compelling solutions for a wide array of commercial applications. As with all TITAN models designated as “Pro Series 3”, the newly-updated TITAN 660 projectors provide the user with advanced FusionExpress Warp & Blend capability, including the ability to make extensive geometric warp correction via the adjustment of an interpolated grid array of up to 16 x 16 nodes. Furthermore, up to eight warp maps can be generated, downloaded and stored within the projector's electronics. On board adjustments for Pincushion, Barrel, Cornerstone, Vertical and Horizontal Keystone, and even Image Rotation, are also standard in the new TITAN Pro Series 3 displays.
Superbly capable edge blending and multi-projector tiling is provided 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 image content is displayed. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the TITAN'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 signal to be displayed by each projector in the array, and enables blending for the appropriate edges.
In addition to the remarkable Warp & Blend technology now included in the TITAN 660 projectors, the TITAN 660-3D models incorporate DPI's exclusive 3D advances, further extending the remarkable flexibility engineered within each display. Applications with 120 Hz native sources can utilize the High Bandwidth Input, eliminating the need for frame doubling. For 60 Hz 3D applications, DPI's built-in Dual Flash Processingâ„¢ enables distribution of 3D content via 60 Hz formats by frame-doubling the signal within the projector. This produces the low flicker image characteristics of a native 120 Hz source without the infrastructure costs associated with distributing and switching ultra-high bandwidth signals. 3D sources operating at 48 Hz progressive (24 Hz per eye) can also be triple-flashed, resulting in a displayed frame rate of 144 Hz on screen.
DPI will be demonstrating the new TITAN 660 Pro Series 3 displays, as well as numerous other new single-chip and 3-chip precision projectors, throughout a completely reconfigured 60' x 50' booth (#N941) at InfoComm 2012 from June 13 - 15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
