DIGITAL PROJECTION INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH AND DELIVERY OF THE WORLD'S FIRST INTEGRATED AND COMPACT 2K x 1K RESOLUTION DLP CINEMA™ PROJECTOR
Hollywood Postproduction Company Invests in First Unit
Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer
of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch and first delivery
of the iS15-2K, the world's first DLP Cinema™ projector to combine Texas
Instruments' DC2K DMDs™ and associated DLP Cinema™ electronics in a
fully-integrated, compact chassis. In January, DPI delivered the first unit to
Fotokem, a well-known and respected postproduction company. DPI expects to
announce additional commitments shortly.
DPI's delivery of the iS15-2K continues the trend of the company being the
first-to-market with the most technologically advanced DLP Cinema™ projectors.
DPI was the first to offer a 2K x 1K resolution, console-based DLP Cinema™
projector, the cS25, as well as an integrated 1.3 million pixel DLP Cinema™
projector, the iS10.
"The new iS15-2K is the most technologically advanced, compact and efficient
digital projector available to the cinema industry," said Peter Nicholas,
director of cinema sales and marketing, Digital Projection, Inc. "It provides
the commercial exhibitor and postproduction community with spectacular 2K x 1K
resolution and the precise imaging accuracy of DLP Cinema™ technology. The
combination of the two enables the iS15-2K to exceed 35mm film quality."
The iS15-2K's adjustable lamp power supply exceeds SMPTE brightness requirements
for the majority of auditoriums in commercial cinemas. This lamp power
flexibility also renders the projector an ideal solution for customised
postproduction and screening room applications.
In addition to exceeding Texas Instruments' DLP Cinema™ guidelines for contrast
ratio, colourimetry and uniformity, DPI's new iS15-2K employs many technological
advances. CineCanvas™, CinePalette™ and CineBlack™ are applied for superior
image, colour and grayscale resolution. CineLink™ is employed for security
management. As a companion to the iS15-2K, the versatile Multi-Media Switcher
1000 (MMS1000) enables the projector to display any content from live concerts
and sporting events to computer presentations and DVD-based material.
The iS15-2K's rugged external frame includes integrated pitch-and-roll
adjustments to enable the projector to mechanically conform to exact application
requirements quickly, and efficiently. This allows for every conceivable
installation option, including mounting the projector either inside or outside a
projection booth. The projector's design also allows for maximum portability.
The iS15-2K can be shared among a number of auditoriums in a multiplex, giving
exhibitors great flexibility in the use of their digital cinema investment.
"When we designed the iS15-2K, we were very conscious of postproduction and
cinema engineering management's desire for digital cinema projectors that can
display accurate imagery as well as integrate easily into a diverse array of
venues," continued Nicholas. "The fact the iS15-2K has solved this problem
serves a further evidence that DPI manufactures the most profound DLP Cinema™
In addition to being available for sale and demonstration, the iS15-2K will be
displayed at ShoWest 2004 (March 22 to 25, Las Vegas, NV, USA).
