-- ATLANTA, GA – InfoComm 2011 - Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, and Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for multi-megapixel display systems, announce the availability of automatic warp and blend software for multi-projector displays.
Scalable Display and DPI collaborated over several years to jointly develop compatibility of Scalable's camera-based calibration software with DPI's warp and blend hardware solutions. DPI now offers two hardware solutions, including both the FUSION line of Warp and Blend processors as well as the newly introduced internal Warp and Blend capabilities within the new TITAN Quad and HIGHlite 660 projectors. This integration brings the full power of Scalable Display Manager software to the DPI line up.
DPI's FUSION processor solutions were created to specifically provide the most advanced multi-channel warp and blend for critical real-time applications. Combined with DP's FusionNet software, large projector arrays can be expertly aligned on complex-geometry projection surfaces from a single site via the FusionNet software over standard TCP/IP or RS232 control. Additionally, FusionNet allows for management of color performance and color matching through zone-based color correction. Benefits also include advanced pixel blending via 3-channel pixel level gain and lift correction, as well as individual RGB gain. FusionNet users can also take advantage of DPI's Advance Blend Zone features as well as enhanced Black Level Matching. Most notably, FusionNet now offers real-time Warping Calibration, an invaluable tool allowing technicians to view image adjustments in real time as warp and blend modifications are made.
"We are pleased to see Digital Projection International bring these new hardware capabilities to market," said Andrew Jamison, CEO of Scalable Display Technologies. "DPI has demonstrated leadership in the emerging market for multi-megapixel displays by offering a comprehensive range of warp and blend hardware platforms on which Scalable Display Manager can add automation."
"We are thrilled to announce compatibility with Scalable's automation software," said Mike Levi, President of Digital Projection Inc. "Many of DPI's integrators routinely apply our projectors in complex, multi channel arrays, often with irregular screen geometries. Now that we offer powerful warp and blend through both onboard and off board solutions, our customer base will benefit from having Scalable's high quality add-on software to bring automation to their warp and blend set-up and maintenance tasks."
