"After years of development and the benefit of great guidance from
some valued lead customers, Digital Projection is set to launch a
comprehensive range of iVision, TITAN and LIGHTNING 3D projectors.

The heart of our new 3-chip DLP 3D product lineup is a new, high
bandwidth sideboard input, which employs twin-dual DVI connectivity.
The bandwidth of this input is so extraordinary, it can accept a full
1080p signal running at up to 120 frames per second (120 Hz). This
frame rate is commonly used for the highest quality 3D applications,
as it allows 60 frames of distinct content to be delivered to each of
the viewer's left and right eyes. Think flicker-free 3D.

Also think zero latency. DP's new sideboard input takes a direct path
to the DMDs so all sources connected via this input are taking the
most efficient route to the screen. Input electronics in most
projectors add from 2 - 3+ frames of video delay, which is a
consistent challenge for customers with critical live event and I-Mag
applications. By comparison, sources connected via our new sideboard
input experience only a few lines of delay. Given there are 1080 lines
in a frame of 1080p video, a few lines of delay is imperceptible.

The scope of our 3D product line will be disclosed in full detail in
early February, but we can share the following facts now:

The lineup will cover a light output range from 2,000 - 20,000 lumens.
Contrast will approach 6000:1 on some models (this is the true
native, full on to full off contrast - no active manipulation of the
signal and no pumping of light output by use of an active aperture).
120 Hz is the maximum input frame rate for sources with 1080p
resolution, but lower resolution sources can be displayed at even
higher frame rates.
That's all we can share for nowwe will reveal all the details of our
3D product line, including pricing and availability, when we launch in
early February. It's time to start thinking DP in 3D!"

Maybe in time we will see some of the other manufactures adapt the
lamp modulation iris combination as Sim2 has done. No pumping or artifacts, its still not clear what they are doing under the hood but their native is 6k so in theory DP could hit the same numbers.

...Contrast will approach 6000:1...

Wow, a real contrast figure - for a change!
