projectiondesign® F35 AS3D – world’s highest resolution 3D single chip DLP® projector now available


WATCH THE VIDEO ABOUT THE F35 AS3D HERE.

Fully uncompressed 3D at up to 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and 120 Hz for superior imaging and performance.

Further consolidating the Norwegian manufacturer’s reputation for innovation in display technology, projectiondesign® announces that its F35 AS3D – the world’s highest resolution Active Stereo 3D DLP® projector – is now available for immediate shipping.

With up to 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution at full 120 Hz refresh rates, the F35 AS3D displays fully uncompressed 3D with more detail than any projector in its size, price and performance category, creating the best and most life like 3D experience available anywhere.

“One of the real user benefits lies in the deployment of our newly developed dual bandwidth imaging”, says Anders Løkke, Marketing Director at projectiondesign. “With double the image processing speed of competing products, we are able to display pictures that do not rely on compression technologies, thus outputting full image detail and accuracy without artefacts.”

Particularly useful for scientific visualization, virtual reality, visitor attraction and training and simulation applications, these higher detail levels allow users to make quicker and better-informed decisions, saving them both time and money.

The F35 AS3D is based on the already popular F35 wqxga model – the highest resolution DLP projector available for commercial use. Roger Carver, manager of DLP’s front projection business at Texas Instruments, developers of the DLP imaging platform, comments: “The F35 wqxga was a stunning technological achievement – now the F35 AS3D version takes this innovation to a new level of image detail. We are proud to be associated with such ground-breaking engineering by a manufacturer that is consistently pushing the boundaries of industry imaging standards and excellence.”

The F35 AS3D features a wide range of specifically designed high resolution projection lenses and incorporates projectiondesign’s unique RealColor™ colour management suite for perfect on-site calibration and unmatched colour accuracy. Natural and precise colours add to the high-resolution performance of the F35 AS3D, and image quality can be guaranteed over any number of projection channels.

The projector offers brightness levels up to 7,500 ANSI lumens, a range of configuration options, and seamless switching between 3D and 2D. Additional benefits include user adjustable Smear Reduction Processing that reduces motion artefacts in high-speed imaging – yet another key feature for simulation applications.

As with all projectiondesign professional projectors, the F35 AS3D benefits from up to five years of full 24/7 warranty availability and is incorporated into the company’s ProNet asset management software suite.

Visual Acuity broadens skill base with new hire

Theatre lighting and production specialist Damian Andrews becomes a Lead Consultant, Project Development at Visual Acuity.

Theatre lighting and production specialist Damian Andrews becomes a Lead Consultant, Project Development at Visual Acuity.

Theatre lighting and production specialist Damian Andrews becomes a Lead Consultant, Project Development at Visual Acuity.

Independent technology consultancy Visual Acuity is expanding once again, this time appointing Damian Andrews to the position of Lead Consultant, Project Development. Andrews brings a fresh perspective to the consultancy with a wealth of experience working in various project roles ranging from client user, owner,operator and integrator.

This key role has both internal and customer-facing dimensions, as Blair Parkin, Managing Director, Visual Acuity, explains:

“The technological scope of our work continues to develop, as does our geographical reach – we are currently working on projects as far afield as Asia, the Middle East, the US and Europe.

“Damian will lead and champion our customers’ interests and provide advice and support to architects, building engineers, vendors and other service providers on each project.”

In addition to project-management expertise, Andrews also brings specialist skills in stage lighting and production to the party – significantly broadening Visual Acuity’s range of technological competencies as the diversity of the company’s customer base continues to grow.

Andrews’ industry experience dates back to the mid-1990s when, while studying for a Diploma in Audio Visual Design, he worked in the technical department of the UK’s Middlesbrough Theatre. He subsequently studied Electrical Engineering for Theatre, before embarking on a large-scale musical as production electrician and working as Company Stage Manager for the Carl Rosa Opera Company. Several years travelling the world as a technical manager in the cruise-ship industry culminated in the appointment as Senior Production Manager on the Queen Mary 2 overseeing the operation of multiple and varied entertainment spaces.

“The QM2 featured the world’s first Planetarium at Sea, and it was while working there that I developed a passion for planetarium design, technology and content,” Andrews explains. “After returning to dry land to work as an event technician and convention-centre operations manager in New Zealand, I was delighted to be approached by Sky-Skan, Inc., to work on a planetarium installation for them there.”

Andrews subsequently worked on other planetarium projects for Sky-Skan all over the world, including the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco – which is where he first came to the attention of Visual Acuity. He now joins Visual Acuity from Staging Connections, an event services company in Melbourne, Australia, where he was Operations Manager. Prior to that, he was Technical Director and Chief Lighting Technician at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, Ireland.

Andrews has returned to the UK where he will be based at Visual Acuity’s Brighton HQ. “This appointment gives me the perfect opportunity to use the skills I have gained from working in varied industries around the globe, to compliment what is already a well-respected and experienced team,” he concludes. “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Visual Acuity.”
