projectiondesign has announced that it is shipping its new 3-chip 3D projector.
The F85 series is the brightest projector in the projectiondesign range with up to 11,000 lumens, and features a contrast ratio of 14,000:1. The projector is available in WUXGA or 1080p resolution versions as well as a special version that can optically switch between REC709 and DCI P7 colour spaces.
“Performance, versatility, connectivity, brightness and low cost of ownership were our objectives when creating the new F85 series,” said Anders Løkke, Marketing Director at projectiondesign. “The F85 is compatible with a range of input and outputs including X-PORT module connectivity and bandwidth opening up the markets in which it can be used including rental and staging, live events, visitor attractions, advanced visualization and simulation and training.”
As well as 2D imaging, the projector can be used in active or passive 3D stereoscopic mode, removing the requirement for multiple projectors in stereoscopic set up. The F85 series can display sequential 3D at up to 120 Hz, as well as frame rate convert any input signal to 120 Hz with the X-PORT DCC120, and combine two input streams to a single sequential.
The projector benefits from proprietary Advanced Color Optical Processing (ACOP), which combines both fixed and motorised optical filters to enable optical calibration with near infinite accuracy and without any loss of bit depth. When combined with projectiondesign’s RealColor color management system, ACOP is said to ensure on-site colour calibration with performance to achieve any desired color standard.
The projector is available with a set of optical lenses for a wide range of focal distances ensuring fit in the most challenging of installations and architecture, and features a powered lens shift system with user adjustable optical colour processing filters. The unit uses projectiondesign’s DuArch dual illumination architecture for high performance and extended lamp life.
The unit weighs 24.1 kilograms.
