Digital Projection International (DPI) has announced the forthcoming release of what's claimed to be the first production high-brightness laser projector in the world. The low maintenance HIGHlite LASER WUXGA 3D delivers 10,000 lumens from a stable solid state illumination system rated for over 20,000 hours, which negates the need for regular lamp replacement cycles.

Geared towards use in professional venues, colleges and universities, the corporate boardroom, or even a home cinema setup, the 3-chip DLP system has a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, user-selectable color temperature from 5,400 to 9,300 K, and features active 3D functionality with frame rates up to 144 Hz. Standard features include image edge blending for correction of non-active pixels at the edge of the displayed image, 180° x 180° tilt flexibility with image flip, and warp correction.

The 26.4 x 21.7 x 11.4 in (670 x 552 x 290 mm), 99.2 lb (45 kg) projector boasts a good spread of connectivity options, including two HDMI 1.4 ports, a VGA port and Dual Link DVI-D and 3G-SDI input. An HDBaseT RJ45 input also allows for uncompressed HD video to be transmitted via a CAT5e/6 LAN cable, and means that the unit can be placed up to 80 m (262 ft) from the source. A selection of two fixed and four zoom lenses gives users placement flexibility.

DPI's Michael Bridwell told us that, "from a commercial use perspective, meaning when the HIGHlite LASER WUXGA 3D is sold into professional or commercial spaces, the MSRP is US$44,995, and shipping commences in July 2014. The MSRP for Home Cinema usage is $49,995, as the high-performance lens is included in the price."
