Complete 3D Entertainment Package to be Introduced at CEDIA
ATLANTA, GA – September 10, 2009 – Digital Projection International (DPI) and Mechdyne Corporation, the world's largest immersive visualization solutions company, have developed a turnkey 3D entertainment system, complete with custom media server, designed to provide a range of 3D content for home cinema applications. A powerful Windows based server is the heart of the Total 3D Experience System, which also utilizes the most advanced active 3D glasses, IR emitter and powerful graphics adapter. When paired with one of Digital Projection’s 3D displays, the Total 3D Experience System presents 1080p images at 120Hz, creating the most dynamic, large scale, high resolution 3D entertainment imaginable.
Powerful 3D entertainment has long been a dream for the consumer market, but a standardized delivery system has not been available. The Total 3D Experience System fills that gap. The pre-configured packages are customizable, but every system includes:
- A TITAN or LIGHTNING 1080p 3D display, suitable for the scale of the home cinema
- The Dimension 3D server - a commercial-grade ultra high bandwidth multi-media powerhouse
- A high performance graphics adapter – capable of rendering 1080p gaming and HD content at frame rates up to 120 Hz
- Latest generation Blu-ray Drive – compatible with future Blu-ray 3D releases
- Preloaded stereographic viewers, 3D games and 3D demonstration movies
- Active 3D glasses – for the highest quality 3D available
- Infra-red emitters to synchronize the server, projector and 3D glasses
- Pre-programmed Crestron touchscreen controller for a simple user interface
Combining all the hardware, software and media in one system, not to mention crafting a straightforward user interface to make 3D entertainment easy for anyone to enjoy, has been impossible until now. Recognizing the need for such a system, the display experts at Digital Projection turned to the 3D system experts at Mechdyne Corporation. With decades of experience integrating high performance 3D displays, servers and software for advanced commercial and military applications, Mechdyne has been integral in the development of this seamless, high performance 3D system for the high-end home entertainment market.
The beauty of the Dimension platform, the Mechdyne crafted 3D server that is the heart of the Total 3D Experience System, is its flexibility. It can be used as an engine for 3D gaming, as a source for streaming pre-loaded 3D media or as a tool for downloading new 3D content via 3D oriented websites on the internet. The Dimension server additionally includes a latest generation Blu-ray DVD drive that will support future 3D Blu-ray movies, which are expected to be plentiful in the near future. Furthermore, the Dimension server incorporates an advanced application that renders existing 2D DVD’s as virtual 3D entertainment.
The Total 3D Experience Systems will be sold and delivered by Digital Projection. Home cinema enthusiasts investing in the Total 3D Experience System will receive customer support from both companies, with DPI supporting the projection displays and Mechdyne providing support on the balance of this advanced system. To assure Total 3D Experience customers can begin enjoying their 3D system right away, numerous 3D movie clips and games are provided pre-installed on the server. In addition, customers and integrators who purchase the Total 3D Experience System will be receive an exclusive publication – Mechdyne’s Dimension Key, a monthly newsletter which provides updates on newly released 3D content and how it may be obtained and enjoyed via the Dimension 3D server.
Acknowledging in advance that integrators will want an in-depth assessment of the 3D system, Mechdyne and DPI will be conducting 3D training workshops in the Digital Projection booth (#519) each day of the CEDIA show. These sessions will cover the essentials of 3D technology and delivery, as well as provide integrators the opportunity to ask questions of some of the most innovative 3D pioneers in the AV industry. The Workshops are expected to fill up quickly, so DPI recommends visiting their booth early to reserve a space.
All of the necessary components have finally aligned to deliver the highest quality, truly immersive 3D home entertainment to the home cinema venue: server, content, user interface, and a DPI 3D display for the ultimate presentation. The Total 3D Experience System brings the latest 3D movies, games and events home, for an extraordinary entertainment experience.
Digital Projection International offers an extraordinary array of over 40 single-chip projectors, as well as over 30 powerful 3-chip DLP® displays and nearly a dozen 3D displays. The company will be presenting their entire range of efficient Home Entertainment projection displays at CEDIA ‘09, booth #519, from September 10-13, 2009.
