CEDIA Selects Two Projectors from Digital Projection as Best New Product Finalists

Digital Projection International has two home theater projectors in consideration for the 2010 CEDIA Expo Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards.

Atlanta, GA, August 06, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Digital Projection International (DPI) an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems, has two home theater projectors in consideration for the 2010 CEDIA Expo Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards. Thirty products from across the custom electronics channel have been selected as potential “Best New Product” winners. Winners will be announced at the Electronic Lifestyles Awards Banquet, sponsored by Custom Retailer, on September 25th during CEDIA Expo 2010.

Lifetime Illumination™ displays have now reached the consumer channel with Digital Projection’s 60,000+ hour lifespan LED projector. The 10,000:1 contrast, 1080p resolution M-Vision Cine LED produces the dynamic range, rich color saturation and vivid contrast of a 3-chip DLP® display, but from a smaller, more efficient and more cost effective chassis. Additionally, the single-chip M-Vision Cine LED does not rely on a color wheel, which renders the projector completely free of the color wheel artifacts that some home theater enthusiasts find distracting. The M-Vision Cine LED presents a powerful yet remarkably affordable solution for home theaters and media rooms where image quality and long-life usage are equally important.

DPI’s single-chip WQXGA is the nomenclature that represents 2560 x 1600 pixels – nearly twice the resolution of a 1080p projector. The dVision 35-WQXGA XC produces an amazing 4,096,000 pixels from a single projector. Over 4,000,000 pixels results in imagery with more resolution, detail and small area contrast than the industry previously thought possible.

In addition to the unprecedented pixel density, the dVision 35-WQXGA XC presents a superior solution for moving between 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 aspect ratio content (or any content wider than 1.78). Traditionally, an anamorphic lens has been required in order to move between different aspect ratios. Anamorphic lens solutions add significant cost, as well as mechanical and optical complexity to a home theater system.

Furthermore, anamorphic optics consume about 10% of the projector’s brightness while also reducing the contrast ratio. Bypassing the need for an anamorphic solution when employed in a constant height application, the dVision 35-WQXGA XC presents a compelling alternative to purchasing and installing a peripheral anamorphic lens.

CEDIA’s 2010 Expo, the premier tradeshow for new technologies, training, and networking in the residential electronic systems industry, will take place September 22-26, 2010. Atlanta, Georgia’s World Congress Center will once again host the Expo. Digital Projection will once again highlight their extensive product line of precision projectors in a massive AV display in Booth 4436.
