Vivitek debuts laser projector for large venues

Vivitek has introduced the DU8395Z laser projector for large venues.

Suitable for projection mapping, it has picture-in-picture functions and offers a constant light output of 15,000 lumens. 

To meet all installation requirements, Vivitek's DU8395Z can be supported with eight different motorised lenses with Lens Positioning Memory (LPS). This enables the position of the lens to be adjusted by electrical control, regardless of where the projector is located. Therefore, the units can display image sizes ranging from 40-in to 500-in without image distortion, and can be calibrated using H/V keystone correction (four corners). Further flexibility is provided by the 360° installation, thanks to which the projectors can be installed without limiting the projection angle. This also enables projection in portrait format. An HDBaseT connector enables long cable runs to be installed. With a single cable of up to 100m, image, sound and control signals can be transmitted without loss of quality. In addition, the projector has a 3G-SDI connector, which allows a camera to be used as an image source.

The Vivitek Distance Calculator is a web-based setup tool that allows users to select the projector model and the lens used, then enter the room size and estimated image brightness as well as the image and projector position. From this data, the software generates four dynamic and interactive graphics: a side, front, top and 3D view. If the projector position entered at the start does not fit, users can simply move it within the graphics using the cursor, and the app automatically adopts the new distances. Once everything is set up as desired, you can generate a PDF from it, which provides ideal on-site installation support. The Vivitek Distance Calculator supports popular browsers including Chrome, Firefox and MS Edge as well as Apple Safari.

The DU8395Z offers a maximum resolution of WUXGA @ 60 Hz. This is delivered by DLP and BrilliantColor technology. Precise adjustments can be made via a phosphor wheel as well as a colour wheel. The projector has a contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1, and also features Smart CCA Calibration and a user colour manager that covers up to 97.5% of the Rec.709 colour gamut.
