The FR12 Remote Light Source Projector is set to debut in February.
Let’s face it, projectors can be a pain. Sure, they’re a practical way to watch videos on a large screen, and they can’t be beat when it comes to economy of space. But having your video source attached to the ceiling gets to be a little less fun when it’s time to change the lamp.
In light of those problems, Projectiondesign has created the FR12. It’s a projector that keeps the lamp and the actual projector head separate. In fact, they can be positioned up to thirty meters away.
The base unit is a silent running rack mounted unit that sends illumination to the projector head by use of liquid light guides. So rather than having a large, potentially noisy projector attached to your ceiling, you’ll have a silent rackmounted unit up to a hundred feet away with a cord leading to a relatively small projector head.
Marketing and communications manager Anders Lokke says that the projector is a huge step forward. “We are taking projection technology a step further in simplifying maintenance, eliminating noise and dissipating heat, as well as offering greater integration and installation flexibility.”
The projector is expected to be shown first at Integrated Systems Europe, which runs from February second to the fourth. There’s no release date or price announced yet, but Projectordesign is pushing commercial applications as the primary usage.
