The 5,000-lumen LX501 from Christie Digital Systems is intended for medium-sized boardrooms, conference rooms, and training venues with its wireless USB and text overlay features. The projector produces a 1024x768 resolution using a 245W UHP lamp. It can accept video input signals on 15-pin D-Sub with component support, 5BNC (RGBHV), S-Video, composite, component, HDMI, and USB. Audio inputs include 3.5mm and RCA. Other features include Crestron RoomView compatibility and AMX device discovery, digital keystone correction, 20,000-hour hybrid air filter, customizable start-up logo, and a stackable design. The LX501 can be remotely controlled and monitored on LAN or via RS-232.
The first model to be introduced in the new E-Vision line by Digital Projection International, the E-Vision WXGA 6000 uses Texas Instruments DLP technology and a dual-lamp design to generate a 6,000-lumen, 1280x800 display. This model has numerous lens options, user-swappable color wheels, and advanced color controls to show up to 14-bit color. Four-segment color wheels are available for high-light output while six-segment types can be used for maximum color performance. Installation versatility is enhanced with its lens options, motorized zoom/focus, and horizontal/vertical lens shift. There are six selectable inputs including DVI, VGA, component, composite, and S-Video.
The PowerLite Pro G6750WU from Epson is capable of handling medium to large boardroom and corporate training room applications with its edge blending, 360-degree installation, point and arc image correction, six optional lenses, and 6,000-lumen brightness. The projector also features a lens-shift lock to prevent shifting due to vibration, an advanced splitscreen function with two side-by-side windows, and three layout options, stackable 3D applications using polarized passive glasses, and an improved remote control with three user buttons. The G6750 also has direct HDBaseT connectivity along with standard video connections for HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, 5-BNC, composite, and S-Video.
Hitachi has fielded a projection solution for medium- to large-size boardrooms, conference rooms, and corporate classrooms with the 5,000-lumen CP-X5022WN. The unit can be operated and monitored on a network through Ethernet and RS-232 while accepting video on HDMI, computer on 15-pin and 5BNC along with composite, S-Video, and component. PC-less presentation is also possible via USB, as well as the use of the optional TB-1 wireless pen tablet. Security features include security bar, PIN-lock, MyScreen password lock, key lock (key pad remote control), Kensington slot, transition detector, and My Text password lock.
The InFocus IN5132 produces a 1024x768 image at up to 5,000 lumens and features motorized lens shift, focus, and zoom with a selection of four lenses to broaden installation options. Compatible with Crestron RoomView and AMX Device Discovery, the IN5132 can input VGA, HDMI, 5BNC, USB, composite, S-Video, and component along with audio on mini and RCA terminals. Remote control and monitoring can be connected via RS-232 (9-pin), LAN, or optional wireless, and there are two 8W internal speakers. The unit uses a 15,000-hour air filter, and the instant-stack feature provides double brightness and/or failsafe backup capability. DICOM mode displays X-rays and other medical images in grayscale with greater precision.
Mitsubishi has introduced the WD720U with 4,300 lumens, Crestron RoomView compatibility, and the capability of connecting video from up to four computers on the LAN port for simultaneous display. Images can also be transmitted via USB or Wi-Fi LAN and adjusted using manual vertical lens shift. Power-saving features include an auto off function and a drop to .05W of power use under certain conditions in standby mode. In addition to direct LAN control, there is also a standard 9-pin RS-232 serial port for centralized monitoring and control. Users can do PC-less presentations directly from USB flash drives while an audio mix feature allows separate audio-level control to its internal speaker from two sources, such as a computer and wireless microphone.
