Reasons for a New Projector Light Source
As the digital space of your market becomes more sophisticated, available projector technology needs to become more sophisticated too.
- Variable brightness for longer life
- Wider color space
- Higher contrast
- Higher resolution
- Larger pictures
- Less energy consumption
- Less maintenance
- Environmental friendly materials
Regardless if it is a display or a projector, the market expects more...
Laser offers new benefits
- Illumination source lifetimes of 20,000 hours or even more
- More brightness – up to 70,000 lumen
- Lower brightness decline during life time
- Better brightness uniformity
- Generally maintenance free, as no lamp replacement necessary
- Higher reliability
- Higher contrast
- Wider color gamut
- Lower energy consumption and lower thermal emission
- Instant on/off capability, flexible brightness adjustment (20-100%)
- Mercury free
There are numerous benefits with a laser light source, but the bottom line is that they more closely address the needs of the market and laser is being adopted in growing numbers.
The qualitative brightness superiority and potential for energy savings combined with the significant reduction of maintenance cost makes it likely that laser will eventually replace lamp-based projection systems as the primary projection light source.
How does the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Laser Risk Group impact your Projector Business?
In business and professional installations, the use of laser projectors is becoming more common. As a consequence, the number of products and manufacturers active in this area is also rapidly increasing. There are attractive benefits to be gained from projectors with a laser light source. Key highlights are the impressive visualization alongside the extraordinary long lifetime of the laser light source and significantly lower maintenance effort, leading to an attractive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
When comparing projectors from different manufacturers, while they may offer the same light output and projection technology, some projectors demand significantly more effort during installation and operation than others when taking into account the Risk Group category.
