Capable of showing an image up to 13ft. wide on a normal office wall space, the projectiondesign F35 panorama is intended for collaborative work environments using its 21:9 aspect ratio without the need for edge-blending multiple units. The input may be a single source or two sources shown side by side as in a videoconferencing application. The F35 panorama has a screen resolution of 2.7 megapixels and a brightness figure of up to 7000 ANSI lumens. F35 series projectors normally include two DVI inputs, two HDMI, and two VGA along with single component and S-Video connections. Control and communication are done through RJ-45 and RS-232 terminals while there are two programmable 12V triggers, a wired remote connector, and two USB ports.
The 6300 lumens brightness of the Sharp XG-PH80XN is displayed in 1024x768 resolution through 3D-ready DLP Link technology and an interchangeable four- or six-segment color wheel. The dual-lamp system provides illumination options including single- or dual-lamp operation and standard or Eco+Quiet mode projection. In the event that one lamp fails, the other can take over. There are five lens options, including zoom and fixed models. The RJ-45 network port allows operation and monitoring by web browser along with diagnostics and auto email in addition to serial control on the 9-pin D-sub. Video formats cover a range of analog formats including DVI-D. A 12V trigger port is added for powered screen or projector lift operation.
The new VPL-GT100 compact 4K professional projector from Sony is based on the same design as the home theater version known as the VPL-VW1000ES, which uses a 0.74in. SXRD panel and a highly integrated circuit to produce a 4K picture from the small 44lb. unit. The VPL-GT100 is fitted with two DisplayPort inputs (2048x2160/60Px2) and it can show 2000 lumens of color light output. The projector is optimized to provide minimal transport delay. It can be installed in either portrait or landscape mode without affecting lamp performance. Control and monitoring are connected on RJ-45 and RS-232 ports in addition to a wired IR mini jack.
For midsize conference rooms and classrooms, ViewSonic offers the Pro8450w LCD projector with 1280x800 WXGA native resolution and 4500 lumens brightness. The unit also provides 1.5X optical zoom, network display, and USB plug-and-play display in a filterless design. With its internal software, the Pro8450w allows up to four PCs to be projected simultaneously with the ability to broadcast up to eight projectors. Various control commands can be stored and activated on a time basis using the projector’s internal clock. There is also a stacking option and audio is provided on two 8W internal speakers. Displays can be projected directly from a USB flash drive. There is also a closed captioning decoder for the hearing impaired. Inputs include HDMI, 15-pin RGB I/O, component, composite, and S-Video.
The new dual-lamp DLP D8800 from Vivitek has six interchangeable bayonet mount-fixed and zoom lens options and built-in edge-blending and warping capability. Input video formats include HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, composite, component, and HD-SDI I/O. LAN and RS-232 control and monitoring are standard, and the unit includes wired IR and 12V trigger ports. The native resolution is 1920x1200 and images are produced at 8000 lumens brightness. These features make the D8800 suitable for larger conference rooms, classrooms, and meeting halls.
