BOXLIGHT Introduces Short Throw Lens Option for Seattle Series Projectors

Publish date:

BOXLIGHT has announced the release of an optional short throw lens available for all projectors within the current Seattle Series.The optional lens will significantly reduce the distance required to project a large image from a short distance, giving enormous flexibility to the installer or presenter. The typical distance to project a 100-inch diagonal for the Seattle Series is close to 10 feet away from the image. With the new lens option, the projector is required to be approximately six feet away from the image.

"The Seattle line of projectors was developed to meet the needs of a wide variety of presenters’ needs -- with six different models to choose from. A generous input panel, unique features, and now the flexibility to have an affordable short-throw option for the entire line; we have the most flexible line of multi-purpose projectors available on the market,” says Jim Leibold, BOXLIGHT business development manager. He goes on to say. “With the exception of large auditorium venues and extreme portability, the Seattle line encompasses the bulk of our customers needs.”

The Seattle Series includes five projectors varying in brightness from 2200 – 3500 lumens and was developed to focus on ease of installation and maintenance while providing a multitude of inputs for a reasonable price. The Seattle Series features an extensive input panel allowing for flexibility and ease during installation. LAN connectivity allows for real time status updates – monitor all projectors on the network or check lamp and filter hours. A side changing lamp means the projector does not need to be removed from a ceiling mount to install a new lamp. The harsh environment filter (optional) and adjustable fan makes it an ideal projector for dusty or dirty environments and the variable audio-out enables an all in one control for audio and video - in addition to the onboard eight watt speaker. Additional specifications on the Seattle Series projectors include; closed captioning, security arm bar, Kensington lock, password protection, quick start and shut down, and logo capture.
