InfoComm is jumping off to a big start this year. TExas Instruments DLP unveils the astonishing 3D Projector that is sure to change what we consider a home theater viewing experience. They are are also introducing the world to the benefits of a lamp-free projector. No more over-heating and dust to worry about.
Digital Projection International (DPI) announced the addition of 1920 x 1200 resolution models to its iVision 30 and dVision 30 series line-ups. The new WUXGA native resolution displays present a 16:10 aspect ratio – a format that is becoming widespread in high-resolution desktop and notebook computer displays. The WUXGA format is also capable of displaying full 1080p video with no scaling required.
Acer recently released the PS260i Wireless DLP projector, adding 802.11g Wi-Fi technology, allowing for media to be streamed directly from the PC wirelessly. The projector can natively play AVI, DivX, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, and XviD video formats in addition to the raw VOB files located on any standard DVD-Video disc.
Barco’s NW-12 brings WUXGA to the three-chip DLP platform for the first time – a milestone in projection technology. This readies Barco for the next stage in professional visualization for venues that need more resolution. Applications for WUXGA resolution not only include full display of high-end computer laptops, but also text messaging that can be combined with native 1080p HD video. Tickers and continuous information feeds in lobbies and meeting rooms, or subtitles in worship services will now be clearly visible without interfering with the image’s native resolution.
The latest high-definition video projector from SIM2 combines the
flexibility of modular design with the astonishing video performance of
the latest-generation DLP® 1080p chipset. SIM2’s new Grand Cinema
HT30000 HOST system pairs a surprisingly compact projector showcasing
the stunning cabinet designs for which the company is famous, with a
discrete outboard video input processor that connects via SIM2’s
proprietary, three-line optical-digital High-Definition Optical Signal
Transfer (H.O.S.T.) system, which is able to link the two over
distances up to 750 feet (250m).
