ISE 2013: projectiondesign debuts first ‘panoramic’ DLP projector29 January 2013
Describing it as the world’s first ‘panoramic’ DLP projector, Norway’s projectiondesign has unveiled the F35 panorama – a projector designed for advanced meeting rooms and collaborative spaces in which users are sharing a variety of graphical image content both locally and remotely.
A wide image aspect ratio of 21:9 or 2.37:1 means that, in an office environment with an average ceiling height, it is possible for images as wide as four metres to be created without the need for edge-blending the output of two separate projectors.
In addition, the F35 panorama’s flexible input configuration means that it can project simultaneous side-by-side images from two separate high-resolution sources, fill an entire screen from a single source, or set up a video conference call next to a computer presentation.
Based on projectiondesign’s F35 single-chip DLP platform, the F35 panorama boasts a resolution of 2.7 megapixels (35% more than Full HD), and brightness of up to 7000 ANSI lumens. It is backed up by a 24/7 and intensive-use warranty for up to five years.
Anders Løkke, marketing director, projectiondesign, commented: “The F35 panorama is, quite simply, a revolutionary product. We have extensive experience of blending, colour-matching and managing two or more projectors working together, but nevertheless we also now see a need for a super-wide projector that can do the job of two edge-blended devices. Thousands of meeting rooms use two channels of SXGA+ or other 4:3 projectors blended together. This essentially replaces all that with a single projector.”
