At ISE 2018, the resolution bar was raised with the launch of the Insight Dual Laser 8K projector. With a 33 million pixel resolution (7,680 x 4,320), Digital Projection says it is designed for applications requiring the maximum image detail possible, including medical, scientific, immersive visualisation and large venue applications.
The new projector delivers 25,000 lumens of brightness and features solid-state laser illumination. Digital Projection points out that this means that lamp replacements are never required; by eliminating regular lamp replacement cycles, system operation is never interrupted and with its filterless design, long-term maintenance cost is said to be near zero.
The Insight Dual Laser 8K uses DLP technology incorporating three 1.38in DarkChip DMDs and Digital Projection’s ColorMax, combining to deliver what the company claims is superb colour accuracy and black levels. These, it says, are especially vital imaging characteristics when matching projectors in tiled or blended applications.
Multi-axis capability is also provided by the new projector, together with a range of lenses, which means that it can be deployed in landscape, portrait or almost any orientation.
