8K x 4K Laser Projector To Be Shown at InfoComm09

Evans & Sutherland will demonstrate its new laser projection system at the InfoComm09, June 17 thru19. Called the ESLP 8K it will be the world’s highest resolution production video projector with resolution and colour projection that exceeds the limits of the human eye. The projector can also display 3D in the highest resolution of any single projector at 4K x 4K.

The unit is powered by a set of solid state laser light sources which offers low cost of operation. Being solid state the hue of the lasers does not degrade or shift over time and yields a much wider useable color spectrum –200% of NTSC/HDTV– than is available in conventional LCoS, DLP, LCD, or other lamp based projectors.

NanoPixel Imaging Chip

The NanoPixel silicon imaging chip that is at the projectors core has 8,192 microscopic moving ribbons that provides an image free of artifacts, no visible gaps between pixels and zero  smearing in its moving images. The ribbon architecture is fine enough to yield a 36-bit/pixel, 12-bit/colour image.

In operation the projector requires modest, quiet cooling and is powered from an ordinary wall outlet It uses significantly less power than other lower resolution 2K and 4K projectors and its light sources do not require replacement as is the case with conventional lamp based projectors.
