Vivitek introduces the DU4371Z-ST short-throw laser projector
Designed for a range of demanding applications such as conference rooms, universities, galleries and museums, Vivitek has introduced the DU4371Z-ST short-throw laser projector. With a brightness of 5,100 lumens with WUXGA resolution, the laser projector offers flexible installation with 360° positioning options. At a distance of 2m from the wall, the 0.5 short-throw lens reportedly ensures the projector can achieve an impressive image size of 4.7m. At 3m, it can deliver the 7m full diagonal image projection.
Integrated DLP DarkChip3 and BrilliantColor technologies combine to create optimal black levels and colourful images with a dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000:1. In addition, the WUXGA laser projector is equipped with a 3D synchronisation port for compatibility with the passive 3D synchronisation protocol for infrared. The advanced laser phosphor light source is said to ensure optimal brightness and colour uniformity.
The lamp-free design boasts maintenance-free operation of up to 20,000 hours. Using the HDBaseT interface, the image signal can be transmitted to the projector over long distances by cable and a standard Cat-5e/6-LAN interface which has been integrated in the DU4371Z-ST for digital audio content. The projector is shipped with Crestron RoomView software for network monitoring and management.
In other news, the manufacturer has announced the release of two NovoProjectors, the DH3665ZN and DH858N, both of which feature integrated NovoConnect wireless collaboration capabilities. The projectors offer a 4,500-lumen light output and 1080p resolution and are designed for medium-sized meeting rooms. Thanks to integrated NovoConnect features, such as wireless presentation and moderator functions, the projectors are suited for the BYOD era and do not require additional equipment. It is also possible to display up to four screens simultaneously, allowing for up to 64 people to participate in a meeting. In addition, the all-in-one projectors provide cross-platform compatibility with Windows, macOS, Ubuntu, Android, iOS and Chromebook.
Staying in the meeting room, the DU857 DLP ultra-portable projector with DLP and BrilliantColor technology delivers 5,000 lumens of brightness with 4,000 hours of lamp life. In addition, it has a six segment colour wheel which reportedly generates vivid and accurate colours, while viviBlack provides a user-controlled enhanced contrast ratio for detailed images. A user-controlled Colour Manager can be calibrated according to the content being displayed. A Direct Power On function automatically puts the power on when plugging the power cord into an outlet without pressing the Power On button. It is also Crestron RoomView certified for simplified communications with remote control over an IT network.
