For over 20 years, Digital Projection has delivered incredibly bright, detailed and colour-correct imagery to some of the most prestigious learning institutions in the world. From illuminating a 12-metre screen with lecture material regarding rainforest research, to displaying interactive organs, rendered three-dimensionally, in order to train tomorrow’s surgeons, Digital Projection’s precision displays have enabled them all.

4K DLP Projectors 

The introduction of 4K projectors brings a remarkably bright, highly detailed solution for discerning large-screen applications. Lecture theatres and research institutes, where both image detail and image stability are critical, will directly benefit from the 4K advanced resolution together with a solid-state illumination platform. Additionally, applications where image uniformity is critical, such as venues employing the same content across numerous screens simultaneously, will immediately realise value from the 4K laser’s consistent solid-state illumination performance. In environments where the projector will be installed in hard-to-access locations, the impressive limited maintenance of the range of 4K laser projectors will save both time and maintenance costs – an often overlooked significant hidden cost.

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) definition of 4K Ultra HD resolution states the display must have at least 8 million active pixels on screen. For the 4K UHD content to be enjoyed as accurately as possible, all 8 million pixels need to be displayed and not all 4K projectors are equal. However, with Digital Projection DLP, 8.3 million pixels are guaranteed to be displayed on all 4K models.
