14 March, 2008 High-end projector specialist Meridian has released its latest high-definition video projector, the MF10, which offers extraordinary black reproduction capability, with 30,000:1 native contrast ratio achieved without the use of a dynamic iris, thus ensuring true black reproduction without loss of brightness.

Meridian has also released the DVP2351, a versatile high-definition video processor designed to deliver maximum image quality with powerful digital video processing to get the best out of any input signal, standard or high definition.

The MF10 uses the latest-generation D-ILA light-engine technology, in a maximum-performance three-chip 1080p array. Based upon an all-new, 0.7-inch DILA device, the MF10’s new optical package delivers a reduction in stray light, producing black levels with a native contrast in excess of 30,000:1 without the use of a servo iris while an exceptionally accurate, 16-element, all-glass lens ensures sharp, fully focused imaging across the entire screen, edge to edge and top to bottom. Its 2x zoom delivers a large, bright image even in smaller environments with curtailed throw-distance dimensions, delivering image size from 60 to 200 inches. Like Meridian’s MF1 projector, the MF10 will feature the optional 2.35:1 (Cinemascop®) conversion kit from lab-quality optics maker Schneider.

The unit includes an extremely low-noise cooling system, with both intake and exhaust located on the front panel, making location close to the rear wall to maximize throw-distance practicable. Lens-shifts of 80 percent horizontal and 34 percent vertical further enhance installation adaptability, while the MF10’s side-access lamp compartment makes lamp replacement simple even for ceiling-mounted installations. The MF10 incorporates powerful DSP for high-performance video processing, including deinterlacing and image scaling, making it a virtually “plug-and-play” solution for high-end, full-HD image reproduction.

For installations requiring a range of fully state-of-the-technology abilities, the MF10’s “pixel-for-pixel” unprocessed mode is tailor made to work in tandem with Meridian’s newest digital video processor, the DVP2351. The DVP2351 provides a full range of inputs including 4 HDMI ultra-high-bandwidth 1080p paths, with flexible switching and a host of input/output aspect ratio options, taking full advantage of its powerful scaling/deinterlacing digital-video processing abilities. Totally programmable, and controllable via infrared or RS-232 communications, the DVP2351 is equally adept optimizing the MF10 projector within an all-Meridian system or in a multibrand layout.

Meridian is offering the MF10 Digital Projector and DVP2351 Digital Video individually. Both models are available now with the MF10 available for a MSRP of USD$14,995 while the DVP2351 processor has a MSRP of $3,995.
