DPI’s New 3-Chip Projectors Illuminate 3D Content

The Atlanta-based high-performance video manufacturer Digital Projection, Inc. (DPI) says its new HIGHlite 330-3D products deliver quality that's on par with its flagship TITAN Reference products for about 60 percent of the cost.

Digital Projection's new HIGHlite 330-D three-chip DLP projector is available in two versions that offer 3D compatibility and a choice of either high brightness or high contrast for $29,995.

Within a very short period of time the Atlanta-based video manufacturer Digital Projection, Inc. (DPI) has gained a significant following with the residential and commercial markets for its line of high-performance projectors.

This past September the company augmented its line of residential products with the announcement of two new 3D three-chip DLP (Digital Light Processing) projectors that offer electronics professionals a choice of solutions that apply to different installation scenarios. The two new HIGHlite Cine three-chip projectors provide a choice of either a high-contrast version that delivers 2,500 lumens and a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 or a high-brightness model that delivers 4,500 lumens. DPI explains the projectors are engineered to meet the performance demands required to faithfully reproduce 3D no matter what type of room environment or screen size is used, and it adds the projectors are also designed to maintain long lamp lives without consuming a lot of energy.

In addition to the HIGHlite Cine projectors’ contrast and light output capabilities, DPI also points out the products are designed to install easily through features like their compact, space friendly chassis; their lens shift capabilities that provide a range of 120 percent vertical and 30 percent horizontal shift, and a choice of lens options that include .77 and 1.16:1 for fixed lenses, and zoom lens ranges of 1.45—6.76:1. The projectors installation flexibility is also underscored by their choice of connection options that include two HDMI inputs; a RGB (DB-15) input, and component, composite and S-video analog inputs.

One final point to consider DPI notes when evaluating the merits of these products is the fact that the HIGHlite Cine three-chip series of DLP projectors provide similar levels of performance to the company’s flagship TITAN Reference 1080p-3D products for approximately 60 percent of the price.
