Digital Projection International Introduces the World’s Smallest Fully-Integrated DLP Cinema™ Projector
iS8-2K Renders Digital Cinema Imagery Through DC-2K Resolution
Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer
of high-performance projection systems, announced the launch of the iS8-2K, the
world’s smallest fully-integrated, DC-2K based DLP Cinema™ projector. DPI’s
first formal demonstration of the Digital Projection Cinema-branded iS8-2K will
be at ShoWest 2004 (March 22 to 25, Las Vegas, NV).
The new iS8-2K is designed specifically for smaller-sized cinema screens in
auditoriums and for post-production. In fact, representatives of post-production
companies who attended private screenings held by DPI in February have praised
the new projector’s size, weight and overall performance.
The iS8-2K employs many of the same features available in the iS15-2K, which DPI
launched in February. This includes a lamp house module that allows for a lamp
to be safely replaced by a trained user, currently the status quo in
35-millimeter commercial cinema.
“Along with the iS15-2K, the iS8-2K is a fully-integrated DC-2K DLP Cinema™
projector which features many advancements, such as a much smaller and lighter
chassis that meets the challenging demand of limited space in projector booth,”
says Peter Nicholas, DPI’s Director of Cinema Sales and Marketing for North and
South America. “These innovative projectors confirm the commitment by both
Digital Projection International and NEC Viewtechnology to the digital cinema
Like the iS15-2K, the iS8-2K also employs an adjustable lamp power supply,
rendering the projector an ideal solution for matching projector brightness to
exacting post-production, screening room and commercial cinema requirements.
Also, the versatile Multi-Media Switcher 1000 (MMS 1000) enables the iS8-2K to
display any content—from live concerts and sporting events to computer
presentations and DVD-based material.
In addition to exceeding Texas Instruments’ DLP Cinema™ guidelines for contrast
ratio, colorimetry and uniformity, DPI’s new iS8-2K employs CineCanvas™,
CinePalette™ and CineBlack™ for superior image, color and grayscale
resolution. CineLink™ is also employed for security management.
Since first introducing 3-chip DLP™ to Hollywood in 1989, several production and
post-production companies have relied upon DPI’s projectors. According to Peter
Nicholas, the number is growing.
“The most progressive companies have already committed purchase orders for the
iS8-2K and iS15-2K. Indeed, FotoKem Film and Video completed the install of the
iS15-2K in February and are currently enjoying the benefits it’s brought to
