Doverstarr’s design included three projectors - two edge-blended across the brick focal point and the third to project onto a four metre wide screen.
The projections can be used to transform the space into a bar/club environment, including some very unique features that will make the club appear modern, stylish and cutting-edge.
Manchester-based Masons Sound for Venues recommended Optoma’s 5,000-lumen EH505 projector for the installation due to its WUXGA resolution and its powerful image blending tools. Its image quality and outstanding brightness would also ensure the imagery remains sharp even when projected onto the brickwork.
The EH505 has multiple lens options, with zoom and focus adjustment to get the exact image size needed, while the wide lens shift range gets the image exactly where it is wanted. This combination of zoom, lens shift and choice of lens ensured that installation was straightforward.
All Optoma projectors use DLP technology, pioneered by Texas Instruments. This uses millions of mirrors to produce high quality imagery which does not suffer colour degradation over time, as sometimes experienced in other projector technologies. The dust-sealed, filter free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance. With full support for Crestron, Extron, AMX, PJ-Link and Telnet LAN commands, the projector can be controlled and monitored remotely over a LAN.
