My former co-worker shares his insights on this years InfoComm AV Conference
That being said I thought I would share just a few of more exciting and promising things I saw at the show:
Lampless projectors ???
- What are they?
- Projectors that uses light emitting diodes (LED???s), lasers or both as the light engine as opposed the traditional mercury vapor lamps.
- Why is this important?
- These projectors don???t have expensive lamps to replace and have estimated life of around 20,000 hours. This means the changing bulbs every 1000 hours so at around $500.00 a piece won???t be necessary, not to mention the cost of stocking and actually taking down the unit to change the bulb.
- This technology also promises to reduce the energy consumption of the traditional light engine by up to 90% which helps in the never ending quest for green facilities.
