DPI to Unveil New Theater Products

Digital Projection International plans to announce two new DLP projectors and a new enclosure for the company's Titan and Titan Reference projectors at next week's CEDIA Expo in Atlanta.

Digital Projection International (DPI) plans to announce two new DLP projectors and a new enclosure for the company's Titan and Titan Reference projectors at next week's CEDIA Expo in Atlanta, according to company officials.

The projectors belong to DPI's M-Vision Cine line. The Cine 260 single-chip 1080p DLP projector can display on screens up to 115 inches big, says the company, and provides 2,000 lumens with a 3,000:1 native contrast. Boasting a lightweight chassis, the projector is reportedly easy to install due to a lens shift range of 30 percent horizontal and 120 percent vertical.

The same chassis is used for the new M-Vision Cine LED, designed for theatrical viewing spaces with controlled ambient light and screens up to 8 feet wide. According to the company, the single-chip DLP projector produces the color saturation and contrast of a 3-chip DPL display, emitting up to 600 lumens with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Because the Cine LED doesn't incorporate a traditional lamp, it benefits from LED technology that provides what DPI officials call their Lifetime Illumination 60,000+ hour lifespan.

The new Cineskin enclosure, designed for the company's Titan and Titan Reference projectors, consists of a streamlined outer cabinet, internal cooling fans, strategically placed sound isolation material, power and IR repeaters, and an optional TheaterScope anamorphic lens/sled combination. Pre-milled installation points in the bottom of the enclosure are meant to ease the process, while a pressure-activated magnetic panel provides access to the projector's input panel once it's in place.

According to the company, TheaterScope-equipped displays use anamorphic optics to allow DPI's native 16x9 aspect ratio projectors to display in both 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 content on fixed-height screens with no letterbox.

Additionally, the Cineskin enclosure also acts as a sound dampener and thermal management system. Molded sound isolation material surrounds the projector and absorbs acoustic wavelengths, reducing projector noise in the viewing environment, says the company. The enclosure's internal cavity is also designed to disperse heat generated by the projector via built-in thermal management system. Low-noise fans are designed to pull cool outer air into the front of the enclosure while simultaneously drawing heat away from the projector and out the rear exhaust vent.
