Digital Projection Announces “Hyper-Cooled” LIGHTNING 35HD-TProfessional series display supports active 3D and 12 bits per channel color depth (June 01, 2005)
Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, has recently announced the availability of the LIGHTNING 35HD-T Pro Series Display. As the latest evolution of the 35HD, the most popular 2K resolution large venue projector in the world, Digital Projection’s 35HD-T provides active 3D compatibility at resolutions up to 2048 x 1080 pixels, making the product well-suited for visualization users with high resolution and/or wide aspect ratio applications. Twin-Dual DVI inputs accept sources of up to 12 bits per color (R, G & B). These sources are pixel mapped to the DMD’s via de-gamma processing with an output grey scale resolution of 16 bits per color, producing a total on-screen pallet of more than 280 trillion colors at any resolution up to 2K. With this twin-dual DVI capability, the 35HD-T produces the highest color depth of any projector available today.
The 35HD-T is also equipped with DPI’s new, hyper-cooled lamp module. Engineered with a proprietary, directional-flow reflector mask and radial heat exchanger, the hyper-cooled module dramatically improves projector thermal characteristics and extends reflector life and lumen maintenance. In turn, these operating benefits provide a significant reduction to cost of operation and long-term cost of ownership, while also enhancing component reliability. The new lamp module also includes a digital hour meter, which is designed to be easy to read whether the module is in a projector or on a shelf.
“As the first product within our Professional Series lineup, the original LIGHTNING 35HD has been an exceptional display for Digital Projection and the large venue installation and events markets” commented Mike Levi, President of DPI. “It was designed in partnership with our most expert staging customers, and as a result, the 35HD embodied the most rugged, mechanically capable large venue projector ever conceived. The new 35HD-T carries forward all of the benefits of the 35HD - the exceptional rigging and stacking hardware with integrated pitch and roll adjustments - while also delivering the enhanced benefits of active 3D capability, extended color depth, improved lumen maintenance and reduced cost of ownership. We are certain this evolution of our flagship chassis will empower even more users in key vertical markets, such as simulation and visualization, to extend the limits of the applications they innovate.”
The 35HD-T can also be configured with a variety of control options, including LAN and wireless LAN. When paired with DPI’s MMS 1000 multi-source processor, any source type or format from video to HD-SDI can be easily displayed. The MMS 1000 also includes four-side soft-edge blend, and can be configured to include geometric warp and seamless switching through easy-to-add options. The LIGHTNING 35HD-T produces 18,000 center lumens and 1600:1 contrast, powerful enough to tackle any venue.
Digital Projection’s other PROFESSIONAL SERIES displays include the HIGHlite 12000sx+ and 12000HD, as well as the recently announced TITAN 6000sx+. The Company’s entire lineup of precision DLP displays will be exhibited in booth 959, and at the Large Venue Gallery, at INFOCOMM in Las Vegas, June 8-10, 2005.
