PROJECTIONDESIGN SHOWS FIRST DLP® PROJECTORS WITH 1920 X 1200 WUXGA TECHNOLOGY AT INFOCOMM08

projectiondesign F10 WUXGA DLP projectorRidgefield, NJ (May 7, 2008) – Norway’s projectiondesign announces the U.S. debut of the first ever 1920×1200 WUXGA high resolution DLP® technology projectors at InfoComm08.

WUXGA stands for Widescreen Ultra eXtended Graphics Array and has a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (2,304,000 pixels) with a 16:10 screen aspect ratio. WUXGA resolution is being packaged in the F10 and F30 series projectors and is set to be the highest resolution display available in the market at this level. As a resolution much sought after and requested by end users, custom installers and systems integrators, it is an ideal fit for computer centric applications rather than the more common 1080p, which tends to be more focused on video centric applications.

projectiondesign F30 WUXGA DLP projectorWUXGA resolution fits the native resolution of many graphics cards, including high-end laptops and portable computers. WUXGA resolution gives more than 56% higher resolution over SXGA+, which is projectiondesign’s most popular resolution today.

Importantly, the 1920 x 1200 WUXGA resolution is also backwards compatible with standard UXGA at 1600 x 1200 resolution, making it ideal for upgrading older projection systems to wide screen. It also secures full current and future computer compatibility for almost any meeting room application. The new aspect ratio and high resolution display reduces system complexity, and increases image fidelity in a wide range of projectiondesign target applications. These include scientific visualization and simulation markets in which projectiondesign are considered pioneers, and as such are enjoying significant growth.

Lars Yoder, Vice President & Manager, DLP® Front Projection, DLP® Products, Texas Instruments Incorporated says: “we’ve had a long-standing business relationship with

projectiondesign who over the years has produced many cutting-edge DLP products. They are viewed throughout the industry as a leading technology innovator and we’re delighted that they will be the first to use our new WUXGA resolution DLP® Chipset in their projectors.?

“We’re delighted with the new WUXGA resolution offering. A lot of our customers have requested the resolution to be available with our high-end F series projectors and we believe that this introduction is set to be just as important for the AV industry as the introduction of 1080p, especially in the 3D, visualization and simulation, as well as post production sectors.? adds Anders Løkke, Marketing & Communications Manager at projectiondesign.

The F10 WUXGA and F30 WUXGA projectors both feature a variety of projection lenses, and up to 3500 and 4100 lumens respectively. More model variants and custom options are in the planning, and will be made available shortly after the product becomes available in Q2 2008.
