Markets and applications
With its high performance and wide range of model options, the F32 series is made for tough requirements. Such diverse applications as scientific visualisation and graphics simulation in the technology industries, including medical or chemcals design, physics research and modelling, and oil and gas exploration, are typical applications. But also motion simulators, large public displays in planetariums and museums, and intensive use applications such as process control and NOCs are directly benefitting from the F32 series features.
High resolution The F32 series features WUXGA, 1080p, or SXGA+ resolution options for optimum application fit. Whether computer graphics or video centric, wide screen or legacy 4:3, there is a model with the right resolution available. In fact, with this range of resolutions, the series covers nearly any need and requirement in virtually any professional AV market.
DLP technology – chosen for reliability
The DLP technology from Texas Instruments® is chosen for its unmatched reliability performance, and its unique coupling with long lasting image quality. With a widely recognized and proven reliability record, and high brightness and contrast, all whilst displaying utterly natural colours, it is the obvious choice for heavy duty applications, applications that are that run continuously, or are mission critical. Independent testing has proven DLP technology to be the most reliable of all microdisplays; not degrading when subjected to UV light, inherent in all projectors. Unlike competing technologies, showing severe image quality degradation after only a few thousand hours, DLP technology remains constant over hundreds of thousands of hours.
Designed for multi-channel systems
With the unique colour matching and calibration tools in RealColor, the F32 is virtually made for matching of images, edge blending and multi-channel installations, whether the process is done electronically in software, or by using hardware solutions. Very deep black levels and both black and white level uniformity, add to the impressive performance.
Designed for full 24/7 operation
All projectiondesign professional projectors feature full 24/7 operation warranties. That means they are designed to operate continuously. There is no fine print. Designing for 24/7 operation requires a lot of attention to detail. Some technologies are better than others when it comes to withstand the abuse of time. We use only components that have predictable behaviours, for instance fans, colour wheel motors, and electronic components that are designed by their respective manufacturers to do the same - withstand time. There are no off-the-shelf components. That is why we also closely monitor the creation of every detail, apply dedicated thermal management, and use specific materials in all parts of the process.
A key focus point in the development of the new F32 series is image quality. Every single projector model can, unlike most of its competitors, be calibrated to exacting colour standards, coupled with a desired brightness and contrast. By enabling this, users are certain that what they see on screen, whether video or computer graphic, is real. Deeply saturated colours and high contrast are key to achieving this.
Intelligent active cooling
The F32 series features intelligently adaptive and active cooling of the entire system. Adapting cooling actively to the environment, and the ambient temperature not only reduces acoustic operating noise, but more importantly increases reliability and longevity by having much tighter control over all vital functions in the projector itself. Using the thermo -electric cooling principle, power is applied to actively cool key elements throughout the projector.
RealColor colour management
RealColor is projectiondesign’s unique colour management calibration suite. Each F32 projector is uniquely characterised during its manufacture. Unique performance values and characteristics are recorded and matched to the electronics processing in order to secure perfect on-site calibration. With RealColor, it is possible to match any number of projectors, and ensure they all project the same primaries and grey scale, without going through a very complicated process.
What RealColor gives
RealColor provides a unique and quick way to calibrate and set up perfect images for any number of projectors. RealColor can alter imagery by changing simple characteristics such as the colour temperature of the image – perfectly along the black body curve, or very complex things such as each colour’s relative saturation and x/y coordiantes. In fact, it is perfect to within 0.001 along all axes of measurement. RealColor works by mathematically calculating each colour independently.
VIDI™ lamp technology
New VIDI technology from Philips enables dynamic lamp driving over time, and greatly enhances image quality. It reduces grey scale artefacts, adds to colour saturation, enhances contrast, and improves lamp stability. Each projector configuration’s lamp runs differently from that of others, and ensures a lamp that is specifically tailored to the application it is used for. Unlike non-VIDI lamps and operation, the lamp power is digitally controlled, as is its performance over time.
Colour configuration options
Each F32 can be configured with a range of colour wheel options, either High Brightness, Graphics, or VzSim. Each have unique characteristics. VizSim focuses on colour quality, low colour cross talk and contamination, and reduced artefacting. The Grahpics version gives lower saturation, but higher brightness for general AV use, and the High Brightness option gives a high brightness with great colours. All options are greatly superior to standard “three colours plus clear” segment in all performance aspects.
BrilliantColor™ changes what you see
Adding to the performance of the F32 series is Texas Instruments’ BrilliantColor™ colour processing. By using six colour processing, brightness, colour saturation, and dynamics are greatly enhanced. Where needed, the secondary colours cyan, magenta, and yellow are boosted, but if desired, can be totally omitted for a pure primary colour system with low cross-colour distortion and cross talk.
