Digital Projection M-Vision Laser 18k

Most powerful 1-Chip DLP Laser Projector ever produced provides 18,000 Maintenance-Free Lumens at an Incredible Value

The most powerful single chip DLP projector available today, the M-Vision LASER 18K produces an incredible 18,000 lumens with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The M-Vision LASER 18K provides budget-sensitive applications a large-screen solution with near 3-Chip performance at a 1-Chip price point. Included is DP’s new ColorBoost technology which delivers optical illumination & software enhancements to produce imagery with higher color saturation and a broader color gamut, delivering a more dynamic & realistic viewer experience.

The M-Vision LASER 18K is suited for applications where high brightness is required but is positioned in a pricing sector not previously attainable by very high-brightness DLP projectors. Equally compelling is fact that lamp replacements are never required, due to M-Vision 18K’s laser illumination system. By eliminating regular lamp replacement cycles, system operation is never interrupted and long-term maintenance cost is near zero. This key characteristic allows the M-Vision LASER 18K to offer a much lower cost of ownership over the lifespan of the projector. Adding to the several benefits of laser illumination, DP’s MultiAxis orientation capability allows the M-Vision LASER 18K to be oriented in nearly any position for installation flexibility and application creativity.

A multitude of optional high-performance lenses and state of the art digital inputs assure the M-Vision LASER 18K serves as a powerful and flexible imaging tool for venues requiring an incredibly bright projection solution.
