Anyone who’s walked a CEDIA Expo or InfoComm show floor knows the bright and colorful offerings Digital Projection has produced over the years. With three new single-chip DLP video products, the residential and commercial projection specialist has again raised its own bar on those attributes.
Digital Projection (DP) has introduced the M-Vision 23000 WU as well as a pair of E-Vision series models: the E-Vision 15000 and E-Vision 9100.
With brightness ranging from 8,600 to 23,000 lumens among the trio of new projectors, they offer integrators solutions for a variety of large-format video applications. Here’s more information on the new projectors from DP, whose latest rollout follows up on last year’s innovative Satellite Modular Laser System (MLS) launch.
Digital Projection M-Vision 23000
DP calls this 23,000-lumens model “the brightest single-chip DLP laser phosphor projector in the world.” Featuring DP’s ColorBoost + Red Laser technology, the lamp-free projector has been optimized to produce the most realistic and saturated, REC709-standard colorimetry at previously unreachable single-chip luminance levels, the company says.
The M-Vision 23000 delivers 10,000:1 contrast ratio and is designed to excel “in venues contending with high ambient light that demand exceptionally sharp and color accurate imaging.”
With integrators in mind, the projector offers motorized shift, zoom and focus across the entire lens range, for extra flexibility and ease of setup in a wide variety of resimercial/commercial markets and applications.
Other highlights of the 4K 60Hz capable M-Vision 23000 include HDMI 1.4b for Side by Side, Frame Packing and Top-Bottom 3D formats. DP adds that the optical system is completely sealed from lens to light-source with an IP60 rating to ensure light output and color performance will not be degraded due to the ingress of dust or contaminants.
DP E-Vision 15000 & E-Vision 9100
As with previous higher-tier models of the series, this 15,000-lumens projector employs ColorBoost + Red Laser technology. New to the E-Vision 15000, according to DP, is Art-Net control that allows for easy integration into existing lighting installations, making the product attractive for large venues and live events in particular.
Like the M-Vision 23000, the E-Vision 15000 is liquid cooled, allowing the optical system to be completely sealed, to provide an IP60 rating. Another advantage of liquid cooling via radiators is that the projector is completely filterless, thereby greatly reducing maintenance requirements and cost of ownership, DP says.
The new E-Vision 9100 delivers integration customers a single-chip DLP performance value proposition “made possible by the seamless integration of DP’s advanced core electronics with the precision optics, intelligent lens mount functionality, and powerful laser light sources that comprise the entire E-Vision series,” the company says.
At just under 61 pounds and packaged in a relatively compact chassis, the E-Vision 9100 yields 8,600 lumens and a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, according to DP.
Like all other laser phosphor projectors in the range, the E-Vision 9100 offers 20,000 hours of illumination as well as a comprehensive 3-year warranty. Other features to suit demanding and mission-critical projection applications, per DP, include a sealed light engine, HDR support, DICOM Simulation Mode, and 7-point color correction.
