Digital Projection International (DPI) does one thing and they do it well - they make projectors.  Specifically, they make high quality projectors for those willing to spend to get the kind of picture quality they want. The new HIGHlite Cine 330 and Cine 660 projectors start the lineup and offer many of the same features.  Both are 3-chip DLP projectors that aim for a compact and cost-effective way to get impressive video quality.  The M-Vision WUXGA LED DLP is the latest in DPI's LED product line, and offers a 1920 x 1200 resolution and over 60,000 hours of LED "lamp" life.  Like the Cine 330 and 660, the M-Vision offers a great deal of flexibility thanks to its small size and significant lens shift.
