The Future of Projection

After you complete watching the The Future of Projection video above, complete the quiz to earn your CTS RU Credits by clicking the ‘Take Quiz’ button.

Not long ago, the projector was the go-to display for many applications. Now it’s considered by some to be to be “old” technology compared to some of the more exciting displays on the market, perhaps even close to dying. This class will dispel that myth and show that as systems designers, it’s critical to pick the best display for the application and in many cases, that’s still good old projectors. Viewers will also see some amazing examples of installs that could have only been achieved with projection.

Scroll through the most common challenges in Projection

See solutions to these challenges from top audio-visual brands – all available from Almo.

Using Spaces with Multidimensional Surfaces

Dealing with spaces that have a variety of surfaces can be daunting. Projection mapping or projection onto curved surfaces requires modification of the image, a process referred to as distortion correction or geometric correction.

  • NEC has a multitude of projectors that are suited for projector mapping.

    We consider such factors as resolution, color accuracy, contrast and brightness to determine which technology is the best fit for the maximum impact of each application.

  • PT-MK 16K Series

    PT-MZ16K Series 3LCD Laser Projectors – A 16Klm SOLID SHINE 3LCD laser projector delivering ultra-bright and vivid large-screen projection.

Room Obstructions & High Ambient Light Situations

In a room with low ceilings, HVAC ducts, or high ambient lighting conditions, installing a ceiling-mounted, high-lumen projector very close to a projection screen can help alleviate issues.

  • Barco G-60 Series

    The Barco G60 series DLP laser phosphor projector offers 360° rotation without any restrictions, with capabilities to shift 100% vertically and 30% horizontally.

  • Installation Flexibility with Sony Projectors

    For tricky installations, Sony Advanced Installation Business Projectors offer a variety of long and short throw distance lens options with a wide lens shift range.

  • Epson PowerLite Pro L Series With Ultra Short Throw Lens

    High brightness laser projectors ranging from 6,000 lumens up to 25,000 lumens with the ultra-short throw lens.

  • Da-Lite Parallax Ambient Light Rejecting Surfaces

    For environments with uncontrolled ambient light, there’s no better solution than Da-Lite’s ALR lineup.

Using valuable storefront real estate to capture attention

Every element of the retail experience plays a critical role in capturing attention; window displays and graphics are key. Integrators need to help retailers reimagine their approach using space, bringing the store experience to life.

  • NEC creates the perfect pairings of projectors and rear surface material

    NEC has diverse experience in materials testing and application design. Flexibility in installation options and 24/7 runtime models are critical when selecting projectors.

  • Samsung OM55N-D Dual-Sided In-Window Display

    An alternative to projection, the dual-sided display delivers flawless clarity, even in direct sunlight, and simple content management with a built-in management solution.

Creating an Immersive Experience

Artistic projects that are seeking an immersive experience need a versatile projector that can project on a floor, ceiling, and every space in between. This will allow the content creator the freedom to take advantage of the entire “canvas”.

  • Barco UDX

    The UDX Series delivers stunning experiences with the freedom to install the projectors in any orientation.

  • Epson PowerLite Pro L Series

    High brightness laser projectors ranging from 6,000 lumens up to 25,000 lumens.

  • Sony’s Phosphor Laser Light Engine

    Sony Z-Phosphor Laser engines overcome the reliability risks associated with lamp-based light sources in installs with orientations such as facing straight down or portrait.

Project Requires Projecting on Multiple Shapes & Textures

Projection mapping or projection onto curved surfaces requires modification of the image to fit the projection surface. This process is also referred to as distortion correction or geometric correction.

  • PowerLite Pro L Series

    High brightness laser projectors ranging from 6,000 lumens up to 25,000 lumens.

  • PT-RCQ10 Series

    PT-RCQ10 Series 1-Chip DLP projectors Create Immersive Environments with Color-Rich Images from Our Most Adaptable 1-Chip DLP™ Laser Projector

  • NEC has a multitude of projectors that are suited for projector mapping

    We consider such factors as resolution, color accuracy, contrast and brightness to determine which technology is the best fit for the maximum impact of each application.

  • PT-MK 16K Series

    A 16Klm SOLID SHINE 3LCD laser projector delivering ultra-bright and vivid large-screen projection.

One Seamless Image Needed for Projection System

Projector video walls work the same as display video walls—output adjoining images next to one another. However, unlike an LCD video wall, a projector video wall lets you achieve a true seamless image by overlapping their edges (edge blending).

  • Barco UDX

    Barco’s UDX projection platforms deliver sharp images with simulation warping capabilities and optimized complex image manipulations and blending in real-time.

  • Sony’s Built-In Edge Blending Support

    Sony Advanced Installation Business Projectors have built-in support for edge-blending applications including controls for the blend region and geometry correction.

  • NEC has a multitude of projectors that are suited for image blending

    The new IDEA line from Da-Lite provides optimal touch performance, and is the best interactive whiteboard projector screen on the market.

  • Epson BrightLink 1485Fi

    Bring collaboration to classrooms and meeting spaces with this interactive HD 1080p laser display

Maintaining Architectural Aesthetics & Ambiance

In a space where the projection system shouldn’t overpower the aesthetics of the room – like a House of Worship – it’s important to use products that enhance the environment, not hide it.
