Overview of the DPX-1
The DPX-1 is a single-chip DLP projector with native XGA resolution (1,024 x 768, 4:3 aspect ratio format). Though pre-release marketing literature had this unit rated at 1000 ANSI lumens, the owner’s manual lists it at 800 ANSI lumens. We have therefore reduced the manufacturer’s published rating on our spec sheet for this product. Full on/off contrast is rated at a very high 900:1.
The DXP-1 will take video signals in a variety of formats, including 480i, 480p, 576i, and HDTV 1080i, 1035i, and 720p. DVI is also supported for those who want to go with the best possible DVD sources. Standard data formats from VGA (640×480) up to a compressed SXGA (1,280×1,024) are also accepted.
Connector panel: The connector panel features an S-video port, a composite video jack, a standard 15-pin D-sub and a set of five BNCs for RGB and component video signals, a 24-pin DVI port, and a D4 video connector for the Japanese market. There are no speakers on board this unit, and no audio connections on the panel.
Lens and throw distance: The projector features a manual zoom and focus lens with a modest 1.2x zoom range, adequate for making small image size adjustments to fit your screen, but not enough to allow great flexibility in the placement of the unit for any given screen size. Throw distance is not particularly short. If you want to throw a 100″ diagonal 16:9 image, you need to allow at least 14.5 feet from lens to screen, and 16 feet if you want to use the center of the zoom range. The good news is that the ventilation is out the front of the projector, so the rear end of the unit can be backed up to within about 6 inches of the back wall and still allow adequate heat dissipation. Bottom line, you can set up a 100″ 16:9 screen and hit it comfortably in a room that is at least 17 and preferably 18 feet from wall to wall.
