Norwegian projector manufacturer projectiondesign had three product announcements for commercial video installers attending InfoComm09, June 17-19 in Orlando, Fla.

  • It introduced its first solid-state LED-based projection system, the FL32.
  • It expanded its range of 3-D stereoscopic projection solutions.
  • It introduced high-resolution editions of its F22 DLP projector platform.

Check out a slideshow of projectiondesign’s InfoComm09 projector announcements.

The FL32 LED projector, projectiondesign’s first solid-state LED-based projection system is designed for designed mission critical 24/7 operations, said Anders Lokke, International Marketing & Communications Manager.

It’s available with either native 1080p or WUXGA resolution options. “We promise 100,000 hours,” Lokke said.

Target markets for the FL32 are simulation and training systems, rear projection monitoring installations, as well as general front and rear projection applications that need high resolution and low maintenance, according to projectiondesign.

It calls its solid state LED illumination technology, paired with the patented optical system of the F32 platform projectors, ReaLED.

“[We] make available perfect building blocks for scalable and durable systems, and promise extremely low operating and ownership costs,” Lokke added. “There is no longer a need to replace consumables during the projector’s working life, ensuring a very high degree of color accuracy and image performance. It is ideal for 24/7 operation installations.”

3-D Technology

Norway’s projectiondesign is using InfoComm 09 to demonstrate its broadest range of 3D stereoscopic projection solutions. A total of four different 3D stereoscopic projection solutions displays are on display at InfoComm in different configurations and different applications.

“It is important for projectiondesign to demonstrate and offer a wide range of 3D solutions because there are many ways of delivering a realistic stereoscopic system using video projection. Our goal is to suit different applications and different budgets, and these are all being continually refined,” Lokke said. 

projectiondesign debuted its F10 AS3D active stereoscopic projector at InfoComm08 in Las Vegas. This year the company says it’s displaying the most complete 3D projector line up in the industry.

Among these solutions are the F10 AS3D active stereo projector, the F32 1080 3D stereo projectors displaying passive stereo using built-in INFITEC technology, the F22 series with built in INFITEC technology, which projectiondesign says promises the most cost effective product for small passive 3D stereo solutions, and a ColorCode 3-D solution.

Lokke said demand for 3-D is growing. “We are seeing more and more end-users in the commercial space realizing that 3-D can benefit their productivity and the accuracy of their work. This is happening not just in traditional applications such as industrial and military, but in new markets that we are already working with like gaming design, medical, education, and VFX and post production.”

Raising the Resolution

projectiondesign also unveiled its F22 DLP projector platform, now available with additional options of WUXGA and 1080p, resolutions. The company says the new F22 benefits from using Phillips’ VIDI technology for improved color reproduction and color management, enhanced image quality, and performance predictability.

“The introduction of the F22 with both WUXGA and 1080p resolutions means that all four of our F-series projectors — the F12, F22, F32, and F80 — can be more accurately tailored to their intended application, offering benefits to our partners, installers, designers and end users alike,” Lokke said.

With three product announcements, there is a lot to look at in projectiondesign’s InfoComm 09 booth.
