RIDGEFIELD, NJ (May 25, 2006) — The professional digital projector that set a new performance level for high-end portables in small cabinets has raised the bar even higher. projectiondesign is now shipping the F1+ SXGA+ (1400×1050) resolution single-chip DLP projector with 300-watt ultra-high-performance lamps.
“By adding 20% more wattage with these bulbs, we’ve putting more lumens on the screen — more brightness in an already bright small-footprint projector,” says Gary Plavin, projectiondesign North America president. “Combined with the Texas Instruments SXGA+ DMD with DarkChip2 enhancement, that also helps boost the contrast, for superior black levels and outstanding dynamic imaging.”
The F1+ upgrade maximizes the possibilities for matching several projectors in multi-screen setups. Attendees of InfoComm 06 will have an opportunity to see the new 300-watt projector in action at Booth # 2330 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, June 7-9.
The F1+ already includes color balance and white point matching, along with absolute contrast and brightness. Projector configurations include several different color wheels, optimized for brightness, plus a selection of custom-made high-resolution lenses.
Small, rugged and full-featured
“From the outset,” stated Plavin, “We wanted a direct resolution match to new high-end notebooks and laptop computers, and compatibility with just about any source available. It was natural for us to use DLP technology because of its ability to withstand heavy use. The new F1+ gives us more light-power to help our users deliver the visualization.”
Designed for a wide range of applications and users, from specialized visualization rooms and simulators, through public displays and medical imaging, the F1+ maintains the projectiondesign design philosophy of power in a small package: at just 7.5 lbs., it is small enough to be carried on the road. With its small size and 28dB of operating noise, the F1+ can be installed in almost any space without offering a distraction. Control and complete asset management is provided through the built-in TCP/IP network interface and a full RS232 pass-through for connection of up to 128 devices.
A full two-year warranty, with a third-year extension option, supports the projectiondesign product. By providing a near-maintenance-free platform, the F1+ continues to deliver an ideal solution for a large number of display demands — only brighter.
