ARCHIVE: Digital Projection on Display

Digital Projection TitanDigital Projection officials are understandably proud of the Ultra Contrast Display demo they have running in their booth (N6340). The demo uses contrast enhanced versions of their Titan and Lightning 1080p projectors stacked and configured to offer what looked, to my eye, to be a gorgeous and dynamic presentation. The philosophy of Digital Projection’s booth is to let all the front displays as you enter the booth fully embrace ambient light from the hall and celebrate their capabilities in that fashion. But in the demo theater, the Ultra Contrast displays were cooking up to a 5000:1 contrast range in real pretty ways. Marketing Manager Michael Bridwell was understandably jazzed about the demo, and also the performance of the new Titan Pro 700 series of projectors and their redesigned chassis, designed to permit some pretty radical projector configurations in various types of staging scenarios. more…

The M Series

Chistie DS+10K-MI kidded George Tsintzouras, Senior Product Manager for Business Products at Christie, today that he should make infommercials for a living. That joke was based on George’s incredible enthusiasm for Christie’s new M Series line of dual-lamp, 3-chip DLP projectors, directed at the AV market. Manufacturer representatives, after all, are supposed to be enthusiastic and I’ve heard some great sells over the years. But George was positively mesmerizing while discussing what Christie views as major breakthroughs with the M Series. George’s point is that the innovation inside the M Series units revolves around impressive advances in optics, allowing two lamps to produce 10,000 lumens out of a single projector.

But he also loves the weight (just 55-lbs.), swappable lamps, intelligent lens system with encoder-based motors, and much more. He was particularly jazzed, for instance, about the filter-free, dust-sealed engine design on the system. more…

New Projector Upgrades from Epson

The Epson booth is swarming with new products and interested parties today as the company shows its new portables for presenters on the go. These little pearly white machines with soft corners have several new features that I can certainly appreciate for high use environments. While they still can accomodate the usual analog formats, digital has moved in and the great thing is that you can have direct USB conveyance from the computer to the projector with no configuration or source hunting at all. Turn on the projector and the computer. Connect the two with a USB cable and your image is up on the screen. No more fumbling with the function key combos. The new models have A type USB, HDMI and SD card slots as well, so you can have your presentation on just about anything.

These new projectors were made to meet the format and learning curve challenges that have been colliding on so much equipment and it appears that a lot of careful though and customer feedback went into them. It was a great demo.
