Short-Throw Projectors for Your Presentation Needs

Often, presentations are limited by their projectors. When presentation space is limited, presentors have to spend more time and effort setting up the projector to project an image the whole audience can see. Short-throw projectors can eliminate this problem.

A short-throw projector is any projector with a throw ratio less than 1. The throw ratio is the ratio of distance to projecting surface to the size of the projection; a projector with a throw ratio of 1 can project an 8 foot screen from 8 feet away. Ultra short-throw projectors have throw ratios less than 0.4.

Short-throw projectors are great for small venues. Because the projector can be much closer to the projection surface, the presenter can get closer to the image without casting a shadow. Also, when presentation space is limited, short-throw projectors may be the only way to project a screen large enough for the audience to see clearly.

Short- and ultra short-throw projectors typically come in the 2000 lumen range, such as the Epson PowerLite 410W. 2000 lumen projectors are recommended for presentations with audiences of up to 100 (visit us online for projector brightness guidelines). However, there are short-throw projectors available with 3500 lumens and beyond, such as the MP776 by BenQ.

Short-throw projectors are not much more expensive than their normal-throw counterparts. They may be just the solution you need for your next presentation.

Two New 3D Projectors from Sanyo

3d projectors from sanyoSanyo has just announced that they will be releasing two new ultra-short focus 3D projectors soon. The PDG-DWL2500 and the PDG-DXL2000 will be about half the size of most other ultra-short focus projectors and will have a multitude of features.

Ultra-short focus mirror projection technology, which has been recently developed, allows projectors to be operated at an extremely short distance from the screen or display surface. The PDG-DXL2000 needs only 15.1 inches to be able to project an 80 inch image and can display up to a 90 inch image. It features XGA resolution (1,024 x 768; 4:3 aspect ratio) with 2,000 lumens of brightness.

The PDG-DWL2500 can be only 12.6 inches away from its screen or display surface to be able to produce an 80 inch image. Sanyo claims that this is the shortest-throw projector to be found on the market today. The PDG-DWL2500 also has the ability to project up to an 110 inch image. It features WXGA resolution (1,280 x 800; 16:10 aspect ratio) with 2,500 lumens.

Both of the projectors use the Frame Sequential Display Format in order to present a 3D display. You use the Active Shutter 3D glasses that help to rapidly switch the display between the right and left eyes to have the 3D experience.

As mentioned above, these projectors are about half the size of the other projectors in their class. Both of the projectors measure 6.7 x 12.6 x 15.2 inches (HWD) and each weigh 14.3 pounds. Included with each projector is an onboard 10-watt audio amplifier and mono loudspeaker that feature a stereo mini-jack input and an RCA stereo input. This allows for the utilization of an external audio source.

Both of the projectors will be shown at the InfoComm 2010 that is being held in Las Vegas from June 9th to June 11th. The projectors are scheduled to be released sometime in July. The PDG-DWL2500 will be listed for $1,995, while the PDG-DXL2000 will cost $1,795. These projectors are taking us a step closer to the 3D universe that the entertainment world is so eager to promote.
