New all-in-one interactive projection system from 3M8 October 2007
The DMS800 Series of wall-mounted projector devices are designed to ‘hang’ above pull-down screens, dry erase boards, digital boards or even smooth, light coloured walls. An adjustable ‘telescopic’ arm allows presenters to project images from a 50-inch to 85-inch diagonal, making it ideal for use within architecturally challenged environments.
According to 3M, the DMS810 all-in-one interactive model takes the functionality of the 800 Series to the next level with its ability to turn “almost any surface” into a digital whiteboard or large interactive computer display. It has an annotation pod built-in to the front of the base unit and comes with a digital presentation pen and annotation software. The annotation pod features a number of set performance parameters to optimise its interactive performance.
The DMS810 incorporates Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, is rated at 1500 ANSI lumens and has a native aspect ratio of 4:3, 16:9. The specification also includes an integrated 40W Stereo Surround Sound TruSurround XT system, Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) and comprehensive input capability, allowing for a variety of input peripherals such as PCs, digital cameras, DVDs or video conferencing systems.
Paul Gardner, business development manager at 3M Visual Systems, told II: “In the largest, most penetrated interactive marketplace in the world, the DMS810 interactive projector provides us with a truly unique product that positions us on our own with differentiation that dealers will be delighted with. All this with a price that can compete against any interactive projection system available on the market today.”
