Digital Projection’s New INSIGHT 4K Dual LED Projector

Digital Projection’s New INSIGHT 4K Dual LED Projector

Crown Jewel Projector for Elite Home Entertainment Revealed at InfoComm 2015

DPI’s INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED, the brightest LED projector available today, produces incomparable color space and previously unreached brightness levels

ATLANTA, GA – (June 16, 2015) – Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of the INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED projector for elite home entertainment. With 3,000 lumens and a color gamut capable of displaying the REC 2020 color space, the INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED presents incomparable imagery to discerning entertainment enthusiasts worldwide. Furthermore, both the Dual-LED and previously launched 2,000 lumen INSIGHT 4K LED enlist the stability of solid-state Lifetime Illumination, ensuring the displays are as reliable as they are captivating. The INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED begins shipping in September 2015.

By combining true 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution with the peerless color performance of combined LED illuminators, the INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED projector produces a previously unreachable combination of expanded color gamut and brightness. Color depth and subtlety is a critical factor in an audience’s perception of image quality. The INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED produces a color gamut that is genuinely awe-inspiring, with a range that far exceeds the REC 709 color standard. This advanced performance ensures that enthusiasts will be able to experience their favorite content with a previously impossible color depth and detail. Combine this remarkable color capability with full 4K resolution, and today’s elite home entertainment enthusiasts now have a truly distinct solution for visual stimulation.

Further benefits to employing LED illumination include much lower cooling requirements, resulting in impressively low measureable noise levels and heat output. Both of which are important factors when the projector and audience will share the same space. And as LED illuminators perform equally well in any position, the INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED can be installed in any direction or configuration, delivering remarkable installation flexibility.

DPI’s new INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED merges the detail and clarity of full 4K resolution with the stunning color space and black levels of LED illumination. The advanced brightness and extraordinary color space produced by DP’s 3-Chip LED illuminated displays separate them from all other LED driven displays, yet understates the perceived image brightness and clarity delivered. In addition to the higher brightness, the INSIGHT 4K Dual-LED enlists DPI’s Lifetime Illumination™ platform, providing a virtually maintenance-free imaging solution that never requires a lamp replacement.  LED illuminated projectors produce imagery with extraordinarily high color purity and saturation. Thus, as prescribed by the H-K* effect, LED displays generally appear much brighter, in some cases up to 30% brighter, than a lamp-based display with similar measured lumen specifications.  DPI’s INSIGHT 4K LED combines 3-chip imaging technology with this unparalleled color purity to create the world’s premier projector for elite home entertainment. All while delivering this experience for many years of consistent, engaging and virtually maintenance-free imagery wherever they’re installed.

The INSIGHT 4K 930 and QUAD models feature two Displayport 1.2 inputs, each supporting up to 2048 x 2160 @ 60fps (4:4:4). Other inputs include HDMI 1.4b, supporting 4096 x 2160 at up to 30fps (4:4:4) and 60fps (4:2:2). An optional input supporting HD-SDI and DVI connectivity is also available. Fully 3D capable, DPI’s Dual Flash Processing can be used to multiply the INSIGHT’s displayed frame rate for to display 3D sources at on-screen frame rates up to 144Hz. Both new INSIGHT displays also incorporate DPI’s ColorMax advanced color calibration system to ensure projected content is color-accurate as well as impressively brightness.

Paradigm Prestige 95F Floorstanding Speaker Reviewed


I’ll admit that I somewhat backed myself into a corner with my last big speaker review. In it, I rather tersely summed up my criteria for a good speaker as tonal neutrality, low distortion, and excellent time alignment between the disparate drivers, and I confidently proclaimed the speaker in question an unmitigated success on all fronts. So how, now, do I square that with the fact that I’m thoroughly and utterly in love with another pair of speakers that checks off all of the same tick marks in terms of what a good speaker should sound like to me, yet somehow manages to sound utterly different in so many other ways?

The first review of the Paradigm Prestige 85F from Secrets of Home Theater & High Fidelity is a home run!

The new Prestige Series is a beautiful speaker, the design and aesthetic are superb, and I can’t imagine anyone not wanting them on view in their living space. Every detail is well thought out… Sound is unmistakable Paradigm; the imagining is superb, dynamics are clean throughout without any midrange coloration… The bass drivers blew me away with how articulate and extended they sounded. But I loved how smooth and integral the bass was represented… I’ve heard many, many speakers in this price range recently, but the Prestige 85F is more than a competitor, it leads.” – Piero Gabucci
