Digital Projection International (DPI) added the iVision 20 series to their array of compact single-chip DLP projectors.

As the smallest and lightest of DPI’s precision displays, the 6-lb. iVision 20 projectors feature the latest DC3 DMD technology from Texas Instruments. The units also include vertical lens shift capability, a feature previously available only in larger models.

Similar to the original iVision series, the iVision 20 projectors are available with either HD2+ or SX+ DMDs, offering native resolution for DMD-based 4X3 and 16X9 formats. Among the new features of the iVision 20 series is an on-axis optical design, supported by a geometrically precise 1.85-2.4:1 zoom lens (1.7-2.2:1 on sx+). When combined with the vertical lens shift capability–more than a full frame of shift range–the system delivers installation flexibility and optical control. Standard inputs include DVI, Component, RGB, Composite, and S-Video.

The iVision 20sx+ renders 2,500 ANSI lumens and 2500:1 contrast while the iVision 20HD delivers 1,200 ANSI lumens and 4000:1 contrast. Lamp output is adjustable, creating the possibility to extend lamp life up to 4,000 hours. The iVision 20 is positioned to serve a diverse range of customers and applications including digital media and advertising, retail and entertainment, religious venues, casinos and hospitality, and corporate conferences.

Digital Projection will commence shipping the first 20 series projectors in early 2006.
