Digital Projection Lightning Pro 3D

Digital Projection, Texas Instruments’ first DLP® partner and the original innovator of the 3-chip DLP® projector, proudly introduces the LIGHTNING 45 sx+ 3D. When considered along with their 30,000 ANSI lumen brightness and contrast performance up to 1800:1, the LIGHTNING 45 sx+ 3D model is the perfect imaging solutions for the most demanding large screen immersive applications, including: military simulation, scientific visualization, medical, chemical and geological research, product engineering, commercial cinema and theme park attractions.

In addition to the active 3D capability, the LIGHTNING 3D models also include Digital Projection’s new FastFrame™ technology, a revolutionary combination of hardware and firmware that vastly reduces the artifacts and image blur typically associated with rapidly moving displayed content. The benefits of FastFrame™ are especially important for simulation environments such as commercial and military flight training, and other applications where maintaining the visual integrity of high-speed imagery is vital.

The LIGHTNING 45 sx+ 3D projectors also incorporate Digital Projection’s Hyper-Cooled lamp module, one of our CoolTek™ innovations. Engineered with a proprietary, directional-flow reflector mask and radial heat exchanger, the Hyper-Cooled module dramatically improves projector thermal characteristics and extends reflector life and lumen maintenance. In turn, these operating benefits provide a significant reduction to the long-term cost of ownership, while also enhancing component reliability.

Other key benefits of the LIGHTNING 45 WUXGA 3D:

Utilizing Digital Projection’s new, advanced electronics, all Lightning 45 models provide the user with advanced Warp and Blend capabilities, including the ability to make extensive geometric warp correction for screens with complex geometry. Superbly capable edge blending and multi-projector tiling is provided by way of high bit depth processing that ensures a seamless, contiguous image can be created from multiple projectors. Additionally, end users can choose to utilize the Lightning’s onboard tiling function by assigning each projector a position within an image matrix. The video processing then automatically extracts the appropriate segment of the input image and enables blending for the appropriate edges.

Also included are Digital Projection’s exclusive 3D advances that further extend the remarkable flexibility engineered within each Lightning display. Applications with 120 Hz native sources utilize the High Bandwidth input, eliminating the need for frame doubling. For 60 Hz 3D applications, Digital Projection’s built-in Dual Flash Processing™ enables distribution of 3D content via 60 Hz formats by frame-doubling the signal within the projector, producing the low flicker image characteristics of a native 120 Hz source without the infrastructure costs associated with distributing and switching ultra-high bandwidth signals.

LIGHTNING 45 sx+ 3D Pro Series II projectors – ultra-powerful display systems for major 3D events and Immersive large screen applications – bringing the precision of Digital Projection to every venue.
