YAMAHA’S DLP DIGITAL CINEMA PROJECTOR PROVIDES A CAPTIVATING HOME ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE

DPX-1300 is at the Head of Its Class, Incorporates Advanced Technology,
Features 5000:1 Contrast Ratio and 720p DarkChip3 DMD

LAS VEGAS—-Yamaha Electronics Corporation, the leader in digital video reproduction, debuts its fifth generation DLPTM Digital Cinema Projector, the DPX-1300, to complement its line of high-end Audio/Video equipment.
Built from a foundation of successful high-performance projectors such as the DPX-1200 and DPX-1100, the DPX-1300, equipped with the 720p DarkChip3TM DMD, uses narrow mirror gaps and an improved coating for superb contrast and color uniformity to deliver a memorable home entertainment performance. Designed for discerning home theater enthusiasts, the DPX-1300 provides an incredible 5000:1 contrast ratio and brightness levels of up to 800 ANSI lumens with sharp yet natural color reproduction.
The projector uses newly-designed 10-bit video signal processing from A/D conversion through to DMD output. The digital video processing device features high performance HQVTM (Hollywood Quality Video) technology with ultra-speedy operations processing and a programmable video array processor from Silicon Optix, providing 3:2 Pull-Down detection type IP conversion that can handle 1080i HD signals.
Other noteworthy technologies include highly detailed scaling processing; jaggy reduction for HD sources using a Multi-Direction Diagonal Filter (MDDF); highly advanced noise reduction, which judges the noise by pixel through Temporal Recursive Noise Reduction (TRNR); and high quality keystone correction by geometry engine (eWARP-2).

In addition, Yamaha has incorporated two new technologies to further improve DVD picture quality: Mosquito Noise Reduction and a newly developed Yamaha Overshoot Suppressor.
The projector has a high-resolution lens (F = 2.7-5.0) that maintains resolution sensitivity to the edge of the lens. Four anomalous dispersion glass components have halved chromatic aberration while maintaining a short focal length and high magnification zoom.
The DPX-1300’s color wheel has seven segments with an ND filter-equipped green segment that provides a more true-to-life picture than ever before. Green resolution is 10-bit, which also significantly improves the representation of black tones.
Installation of the DPX-1300 is easy and versatile. A short focal length of 3m (100″ 16:9) and high magnification with a zoom ratio of 1.6x facilitate installation. Motorized vertical lens shift is ±50% of projection height and iris, zoom and focus adjustments are also motorized.
The projector is user-friendly, and offers a one-line menu with a graphical menu configuration that keeps operation simple. Other features include Smart Zoom for projecting 4:3 sources onto a full 16:9 screen, Cinema Zoom for eliminating black bars on images wider than 16:9, six memories for each terminal, variable lamp power control, operation lock function, automatic aspect conversion, powerful trigger out (12V, 200mA) for flexible custom installation system design, and HDMI and DVI terminals for digital video connection. The DPX-1300 (MSRP $12,495.95) is currently available, and can be seen during the CES 2006 show at Yamaha’s booth (#9844) in the center hall, Las Vegas Convention Center, beginning January 5.
