Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy-Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announced the launch of the HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ ‘Professional Series’ projector. The resolute, powerful and adaptable projector will be exhibited for the first time at InfoComm 2004 (Booth #3755) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The SXGA+ native resolution HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ provides an excellent combination of lumen output (greater than 11,000 ANSI lumens) and ultra-rich contrast (1800:1 full-field). The combination makes the projector an extraordinary solution for a diverse range of staging applications and medium-to-large venue system installations.

The feature-rich HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ can support any video or computer source, includes four-side soft-edge blend capabilities and can be configured to incorporate advanced options such as seamless cross-fade, optimized video processing and user-definable geometric warp. “The HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ is, quite simply, the most capable product in its performance class,” said Mike Levi, president of Digital Projection, Inc. “The projector’s combination of spectacular 3-chip DLP imaging accuracy, mechanical adaptability and supreme efficiency of operation sets the HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ apart from any other medium-to-large venue display.”

The HIGHlite 12000Dsx+ includes DPI’s exclusive rigging/stacking system with integrated pitch and roll adjustments. This ingenious configuration renders the 12000Dsx+ “ready to rig or stack” right out of its transit case. The projector’s three integrated Digital Projection, HIGHlite 12000Dsx+, chassis-leveling “jack” points enable users to quickly optimize projector pitch and roll to the exact application requirements.

The new HIGHlite joins the LIGHTNING 35HD in DPI’s lineup of ‘Professional Series’ projectors. DPI plans to expand this lineup with more product introductions in 2004 and 2005, including additional HIGHlite and LIGHTNING series projectors.
