Analog Way partnered with Digital Projection, Inc. (DPI) to showcase DPI’s new INSIGHT LASER 8K projector at InfoComm 2018. Analog Way’s Picturall media servers, VIO 4K multi-format converters and Ascender 48-4K-PL multi-screen processor played key roles in the DPI booth. In April, DPI successfully deployed a similar roster of Analog Way gear in the company’s booth at NAB, DPI’s first NAB show in 15 years.
The INSIGHT LASER 8K projector was the centerpiece of DPI’s InfoComm exhibit. The flagship projector, the latest in the INSIGHT product line, occupies an elite class all its own. It provides an ultra-high resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels through 25,000 lumens of solid-state laser-phosphor illumination. Its 33 million pixel 8K resolution is the equivalent of four 4K images or 16 HD images.
“Digital Projection enjoyed unprecedented traffic at this year’s InfoComm,” reports Chuck Collins, DPI’s Vice President of Sales. “Our new ground-breaking INSIGHT LASER 8K was a ‘must see’ product at the show: The uncompressed 8K content was absolutely stunning to experience. But to harness the full capability of the INSIGHT 8K’s 33,000,000 pixels, we worked alongside Analog Way’s stellar team and the incredible products that they incorporated in our display.”
Mike Levi, President of DPI, notes that, “DPI has demonstrated the INSIGHT LASER 8K with the support of Analog Way at every major INSIGHT 8K presentation in North America to date. Analog Way has provided all of the front-end source switching, image processing and multi-source on-screen windowing to harness the full power of 8K.”
According to Analog Way’s Chief Technologist Andrzej Lubaszka, “every screen in DPI’s InfoComm booth was powered by Analog Way equipment. Once again we supported the INSIGHT LASER 8K projector showcasing use cases and a wide range of application examples.”
In addition, Analog Way “provided playback and processing for five projectors in the air, an LED screen on the ground playing back a coordinated show, as well as an LED demonstration area featuring some 3D content,” says Lubaszka.
In the booth’s marquis exhibit, Analog Way’s Picturall media server fed and managed content for the INSIGHT LASER 8K projector. VIO 4K converted Display Port to SDI as well as switched between Picturall and other 8K sources.
“With Analog Way’s image processing technology, we were able to show 16 FHD sources or switch to four 4K sources on one screen,” Collins explains. “Our combined technologies open the door for a very cost-effective solution in multiple markets.”
“We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on the INSIGHT LASER 8K,” notes Levi. “Analog Way’s products are exceptional, and their expert team makes them great partners. When configured as a system, the INSIGHT LASER 8K and Analog Way products serve as an intensely resolute and flexible display solution that serves applications as diverse as command and control, process control, traffic management, medical imaging, automotive design, sportsbooks and gas exploration.”
Additionally, the booth’s LED presentation area utilized Analog Way’s VIO 4K for a 120hz 3D presentation and an Ascender 48-4K-PL for multi-window applications. The rest of the booth, featuring three 4K projectors, two portrait-mode 1080p projectors and an LED display, was powered by Picturall media servers.
“Our confidence in Analog Way has been well placed,” says Collins. “We are always happy to work with a company that shares many of our core values.”
