New projectors for the boardroom impress clients and AV techs alike.
Panasonic designed the PT-F300NTU for flexibility in installation and minimizing routine maintenance chores. The autocleaning air filter stretches the cleaning frequency up to as much as 10,000 hours, and the lamp is specified to last up to 5000 hours. The 3LCD system delivers 4000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 600:1, with a native resolution of 1024x768. Wireless connectivity is simple using the ET-UW100 Easy Wireless stick and the Wireless Manager software. Remote control options include IR, serial, and LAN, and the unit can accommodate input signals from DVI, VGA, S-Video, and composite.
With the resolution to display a number of separate HD windows at once, the F35 WQXGA from projectiondesign can be used for collaborative presentations in a number of settings. One-chip DLP imaging with brightness up to 6500 lumens and an adjusted contrast ratio of 8000:1 ensure clarity and fine detail. Installation flexibility is made possible with a range of four selectable lenses. Video inputs include dual-link DVI, HDMI 1.3a, RGBHV, and component.
The F10M from Samsung is an LED projector with 1000 ANSI lumens that stays at that level through the 30,000-hour life of the lamp and runs much cooler than conventional lamps, according to the company. The unit also has PC-free file viewer that allows users to manage their presentations directly from a USB flash drive. The 1024x768 image can range in size from 40in. to 300in. from HDMI or VGA input sources.
Sanyo offers the PLC-WTC500L with an automatic lamp selection system to extend the time between lamp purchases and provide an additional degree of dependability. When in alternating mode, the system selects from the two lamps the one with the lower usage time. Relay mode uses one lamp up to its rated lifetime and then switches to the other. The unit projects an aspect ratio of 16:9 with a brightness of 5000 ANSI lumens.
