DPI Readies Industry’s First 8K DLP Projector, Ships 4K 3-Chip DLP Projector at 12.5K Lumens

Digital Projection was at NAB last week with its first-ever 8K DLP projector. The 25,000-lumen INSIGHT LASER 8K (7680×4320) — that’s 33-million pixels and four times the resolution of 4K. The INSIGHT LASER will ship later this year.

In the meantime, DLP’s HIGHlite 4K resolutions (3840×2160) LASER is now 12,500 lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The 3-chip projector is aimed at home-cinema and entertainment venues, commercial AV and houses of worship. Medical imaging is also supported through the projector’s DICOM simulation mode. Digital Projection’s LASER projectors provide a lowest cost of ownership as a result of the laser illumination system’s 20,000-hour life-span. With no lamps to replace or maintenance costs, the end-user saves money over time and never needs to worry about the possibility of lamp failure. In addition, since they are laser, the projector can be oriented in any position. Other features include HDMI 1.4a, HDMI 2.0 for support of 4K-UHD formats and DisplayPort 1.2 for 4K content delivery.

Here are all the specs.
