Evans & Sutherland to Premier First 4K x 4K 3D Projector at InfoComm 2009

Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation will demonstrate for the first time its new 3D capable laser projection system at the InfoComm 2009 tradeshow, booth 3813, June 17-19 in Orlando, Florida. This newest E&S Laser Projector (the ESLP 8K) is the world's highest resolution production video projector, and it provides superior 3D images at an astounding 4K x 4K resolution. It will offer museums, universities, research labs, control rooms, creative studios and indoor venues worldwide with a 3D experience that brings viewers into worlds both real and imaginary in a way that they have never experienced before.

  • The ESLP 8K offers unique advantages when it comes to displaying 3D stereographic video. Because of its zero-persistence characteristic, the projector can effortlessly switch between left-eye and right-eye views at 120 Hz or more, without any “bleed” between the left and right views. This results in a noticeably cleaner separation and 3D effect, when compared to using active stereo glasses with an LCoS or LCD projector.
  • For customers that have a need to switch between 2D and 3D images based on the video content being displayed, the ESLP 8K comes with flexible control software that allows users to change the display format from 3D to 8K x 4K quickly and easily. This capability will also be on display at InfoComm 2009. The ESLP 8K will be available in the second half of 2009.
  • The ESLP 8K laser projector system displays content the equivalent to sixteen times HD 1080p resolution, or the difference between 2 million pixels and 32 million. It is powered by a set of revolutionary laser light sources which offer multiple benefits, including low cost of operation. The hue of the lasers does not degrade or shift over time. Furthermore, the lasers yield a much wider useable color spectrum (200% of NTSC/HDTV) than is available in conventional LCoS, DLP, LCD, or other lamp-illuminated projectors.
