Dukane Introduces LCOS Projector1500 lumens, $8,995 (October 22, 2001)
The ImagePro 9115 has a picture resolution of 1024 x 1365 and a contrast of 600 to one, is 1500 lumens, weighs 12lbs and has an MSRP of $8,995. The ImagePro 9115 will be available for delivery November 1, 2001.
The 0.9" LCOS chips contain mirror backed LCD elements that are located on silicon substrate. The silicon has all the electronics buried in its structure and thereby permits a higher aperture ratio (92%). This provides an image that is free of pixel lines. A second benefit of the LCOS is the improved contrast ratio, which gives the image a vibrant realistic quality. Third, the image resolution is beyond SXGA. This permits the display of everything from complex detailed computer images to the large content of high definition TV (HDTV) pictures.
With a native resolution of 1365 x 1024 the projector can realistically display computer input signals of VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, UXGA (compressed), Mac 13" and Mac16". It can also display video signals that are in the composite, S-video, and component form. For component video it is capable of 480i, 480p, 570i, 720p, and 1080i signal display which are the HDTV formats.
To assure that the video signal displayed is line and artifact free, the ImagePro 9115 has a progressive scan video scaler system, which is far superior to conventional line doublers. This is a Motion Adaptive Progressive Scan, which employs field interlacing to provide twice as many full image lines. Line flicker is reduced and the newly generated lines provide added sharpness. Thus, large screen images are cleaner, sharper, and a pleasure to view. The video image is also improved by a black level enhancement process and an improved 3/2 pull down system to accurately reproduce the film motion sequences. Finally, there are three gamma correction modes to optimize the projected image tonal color range. The ImagePro 9115 at 12lbs can be easily moved about or mounted. The 1500 lumen image has both vertical and horizontal electronic keystone correction.
Multiple connections are possible with 3 RGB (computer) inputs, 3 video inputs, RS232 control, and mouse control via the IR remote control. This includes a DVI (Digital RGB) input, two analog RGB (computer), Component Video, S-video, Composite video, a RGB monitor output, USB and control ports.
The ImagePro 9115 is backed by a Five Year Limited Warranty and Two Year "Peace Of Mind " program which is the finest warranty program in the industry.
