Featuring a seven-axis matrix adding orange to the usual six colors, the DLA-F110 projector from JVC is 3D-ready with the frame sequential method projecting through a motorized zoom lens. The 1700-lumen unit can accept video formats including two HDMI 1.4a, analog RGB on a 15-pin D-sub, and component on RCA connectors. Remote control capability is facilitated through IR, RS-232, and LAN, and the projector offers configuration save and restore. The native resolution is 1920x1080, and the imaging provides 10-bit gamma correction, user-adjustable gamma tracking with powered lens shift, and a 2X zoom lens.
The UD8350U WUXGA projector from Mitsubishi is a 6500-lumen dual lamp model that can be operated in either in dual lamp or in lamp relay mode while providing edge blending between multiple units. The heat pipe cooling system requires no power supply and the geometric image correction allows projection onto curved surfaces. There is a range of optional lenses, and the UD8350U accepts video in 15-pin D-sub, 5-BNC, DVI-D, composite, S-Video, and HDMI. It features a native resolution of 1920x1200 along with motorized zoom and focus. Additionally it offers direct power off and built-in test pattern.
Energy-saving power management features such as auto power-down with no input video signal detected and auto power-on when a video signal is detected on the RGB input are key features of the PX700W from NEC. The dual lamp 7000-lumen projector also offers quick start (3 to 4 seconds) and a sleep timer that can power it down after a set countdown time. There is also edge blending, picture-in-picture, and side-by-side picture configuration. NEC’s PX Series units also provide Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) slots for customized input signal configuration.
The TW865-NL from Optoma is a 6000-lumen large venue projector with motorized zoom, focus and lens shift, side-loading lamp, and three lens choices. The center lens projector has remote control and monitoring options including RS-232 and LAN. Video input formats include HDMI, DVI, two VGA, S-Video, composite, component, and RGBHV. Audio RCA inputs and outputs, USB ports, wired remote, and a 12V trigger port are also standard features. The unit supports HD video display and it is 3D compatible. The TW865-NL weighs 40.3lbs. without the lens.
Projectors with built-in HDBaseT capability made a big showing at InfoComm this year, and among those was the PT-VW431DU, high-brightness, 4300-lumen, WXGA-resolution compact body projector from Panasonic. Using the company’s new Digital Link technology, the projector accepts audio, uncompressed HD video, and control on a single Cat-5e/6 LAN cable. It is also equipped with a 1.6X manual zoom and a pleated micro-cut filter that provides up to 4,000 hours of service. Using a single 280W UHM lamp, the PT-VW431DU also features direct off and a built-in 10W speaker.
Star of the F35 Series, the high-resolution single-chip 3D DLP F35 AS3D projector from projectiondesign provides full 1080p 1920x1200 resolution in 3D for training, modeling, simulation, and other applications. The unit has the capability to show 2D and 3D sources simultaneously and switch easily between the two. The patented DuArch architecture uses two lamps, two color wheels, and two sets of illumination optics for increased performance and the dual 300W UHP lamps can be hot-swapped. Video inputs include two HDMI and two dual-link DVI.
