New projectors for the boardroom impress clients and AV techs alike.
For midsize conference rooms and classrooms, the 3LCD Christie LWU420 brings a high-resolution display at 1920x1200 with 4200 ANSI lumens with 1000:1 contrast and manual zoom, focus, and lens shift. The projector will input a wide range of video signals including HDMI 1.3, HD on 15-pin with loop-through, RGBHV on BNC connectors, component, and composite. HD resolution extends up to 1080p. In addition to the normal audio inputs, the LWU420 also offers an audio output on 1/8in. mini. Advanced features include auto aspect ratio detection, dynamic iris control, automatic digital horizontal and vertical keystone correction, support for closed caption display, and picture-by-picture.
Unveiled at InfoComm as the first of the new E-Vision series from Digital Projection, the E-Vision WXGA 600 offers several lens options and user-swappable color wheels included with the projectors. The unit is capable of producing 6000 lumens with up to 2400:1 contrast. The lens mount allows motorized zoom, focus, and horizontal/vertical lens shift. With Texas Instruments DLP technology, the unit allows a native screen resolution of 1280x800. It can accept composite, S-Video, and color difference video standards; RGB graphics up to 1600x1200; HD RGB; and component, along with single link DVI. The dual-lamp design provides a total lamp life of up to 6000 hours when lamps are used sequentially in Eco mode.
The Eiki LC-X85 is adaptable to a range of boardroom applications with its optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses in a quick-lens-change system. With 7000 ANSI lumens brightness (with the AH-23081 lens) and a 2200:1 contrast ratio, the projector carries enough sparkle to suit even the largest meeting rooms. It has a diagonal display capability from 31in. to 400in. and computer format compatibility from 1920x1200 through 640x480. The video input formats include 15-pin RGB, DVI-D with HDCP, RGBHV on BNC connectors, composite, component, and S-Video. The unit weighs 25lbs., and it offers both serial and infrared remote control.
For midsize classrooms, boardrooms, and auditoriums, the Epson PowerLite G5000 puts out 4000 lumens of color and white light with 3-chip LCD imaging. It provides a contrast ratio up to 1000:1 and native XGA resolution. Very quick filter removal and side lamp access speed routine maintenance, and the vertical lens-shift capability of ±50 degrees and horizontal ±10 degrees make the projector adaptable to a range of architectural challenges. Inputs include two 15-pin HD, S-Video, and composite, while remote control may be handled on RS-232, infrared, and LAN.
