Projectiondesign is rolling out its new Avielo Series of DLP projectors.

The series will consist of five models, with two models (Radiance, Helios) to be released in the fourth quarter of 2008.

The first three models to hit the market will be Spectra, Optix and Prisma. Each projector features TI’s DLP technology, full 10-bit processing and the company’s RealColor color management.

Projectiondesign president Gary Plavin says the specifications in the Avielo projectors are “unbeatable.”

“The HD revolution has consumers demanding the crème de la crème,” Plavin says. “That’s Avielo with moviemaker performance features.”

The projectors also feature Phillips UHP VIDI lamp technology with a contemporary look in bronze and white.

Features of the full HD 1080p Spectra, which Plavin says should be the best seller in the series, include:

  • Native resolution of 1,920x1,080
  • Suitable for screen sizes up to 120-inches diagonal
  • Signature Series projection lenses

The single-chip Optix projector features:

  • Full HD 1080p resolution
  • Choice of six lens options, three of which come from the Signature Series
  • Suitable for 180-inch screens
  • DuArch dual illumination architecture to ensure performance despite lamp failure

The entry-level Prisma offers a 720p resolution and is designed for screens up to 100 inches.

The upcoming Radiance projector is based on the same chassis as the Spectra with high-power output suitable for screens up to 135-inches. It also features adjustable color gamut and an image content adaptive output level.

The Helios projector, also to be released in Q4, uses proprietary 3-chip DLP technology and is suitable for screens up to 300-inches diagonal.

Projectiondesign did not release any pricing information.
