In Case You Missed It @ InfoComm: Projection Mapping on a Tesla, New 4K Technology and More

InfoComm 2015 is a wrap! As we predicted before the show, projection mapping, 4K and video walls were major themes this year, with a number of new solutions and technologies making their InfoComm debut. If you weren’t one of the 38,000 attendees, check out the highlights below!

Projection Mapping with a Tesla Model S

Without a doubt, the Tesla Model S projection mapping demo was a showstopper. Utilizing eight Panasonic PT-DZ21KU projectors with edge blending, the demo takes the car through a spectacular drive through the snow, a cityscape and multiple different color changes. Check out this short video to see for yourself:

Interactive Laser Projection Demo

Projection mapping really is as limitless as your imagination. Employing two high brightness laser PT-RZ12KU projectors equipped with ET-D75LE90 ultra-short throw lenses and one additional laser projector, PT_RZ670BU, our engineers created an interactive world where the user can bounce a digital basketball or roll a giant stone ball through a fiery inferno – just like Indiana Jones. Check out this short video of the installation:

4K Theater

InfoComm saw the introduction of a number of new 4K technologies, including our new laser projector, PT-RQ13KU. With 4K+ screen resolution (5,120 X 3,200) and Quad Pixel Drive technology, it’s the most compact and lightweight* 4K+ 3-Chip DLP™ laser projector in the world – and was only viewable inside our appointment-only 4K Theater. The projector boasts an impressive 10,000 lm of brightness and a contrast ratio of 20,000:1, delivering spectacularly detailed, film-like, beyond 4K image quality. Learn more here.

Integrated Video Walls

As InfoComm showed us, applications for integrated video walls continue to multiply from TV news sets, store fronts and hospital lobbies to sports bars, airports and command and control centers. These ultra-narrow bezel, high-brightness displays with integrated DIGITAL LINK and a “Failover and Failback” function simplify installation and maintenance and eliminate the risk of a dreaded “black screen.”
