Projector enclosure manufacturer Tempest has provided its new LIZA model for an installation at the Tower of London – a renowned world heritage site.
Tempest collaborated with projector partner Panasonic UK, which has installed eight 6540H Liza HUSH enclosures in the Tower's Jewel House; they are tackling issues of dust ingress into existing Panasonic PT-DZ680 projectors in a variety of different display spaces. The new enclosures provide a neat, secure housing for the projectors that protects them from dust – cutting the risk of overheating and projector burn-out, and also reducing maintenance costs.
“We have worked with Tempest before and have always been more than pleased with the capabilities of their enclosures,“ explained Chris Green, project engineer for Panasonic System Solutions. “It is always a challenge working in historic buildings, where airborne dust is a much more common problem than in modern spaces. Tempest has provided a solution that not only completely protected the projector but also allowed the staff in the Tower to greatly reduce their twice-monthly filter cleaning schedule!”
Part of Tempest’s HUSH projector enclosure line-up, LIZA features four models to cover most popular leisure and business application projectors up to 15,000 ANSI lumens. Each enclosure is lined with high-performance acoustic insulation foam and incorporates airtight seals for up to 27dB noise attenuation. Whisper-quiet, variable-speed DC fans remove heat from the enclosure, while inlet and exhaust air is routed through special insulated hoses that act as a baffle as the air travels into the ceiling void or building ventilation system.
LIZA is also designed to minimise visible intrusion into the space with its clean, sleek lines creating a modern, attractive housing, with little or no external hardware. LIZA is also quick and easy to install in any country, using any mains voltage.
“What a great start for our latest enclosure,” comments Alan Luxford, Tempest’s European business development manager. “It is always a pleasure to work with our friends at Panasonic, with whom we have completed a number of installations in the UK, including the Keep in Brighton and Euston Station in London.”
