The following tech tip from DPI offers a streamlined but detailed overview of what differentiates DP's LED and UHP-illuminated projectors. Analyzing variables such as color performance, stability, maintenance, and other performance items, this document pinpoints the key characteristics of each technology platform.

Using this document as a guide, DP dealers can accurately identify which platform supplies the best fit for real-world applications.

1) Low Cost of Ownership
• Never Purchase a Replacement Lamp
- 60,000 to 100,000 Hour Illumination System Depending on Projector Model
- Saves Thousands of $$$ Normally Spent on Lamps During the Life of a Projector
- Eliminates the need to Track Lamp Hours until Replacement

• No Lamps to Replace
- Reduces Downtime Spent Replacing Lamps
- Reduces Downtime Spent Recalibrating Brightness and color
- Eliminates the Need to Hold Spare Lamp Inventory

• Replacement LED Module (if ever needed)
- Low cost, costs less than two lamps
- Unlikely to ever be needed, as 60,000 hours of LED life equals nearly 8 years of 24/7 operation

The Unsolved Mysteries of AV Tech Managers by Christopher Neto

I recently sat down with two friends for lunch. We are all in the AV business and each of us has spent some time working in the corporate AV support function. As we ordered our food we exchanged updates of “what happened to him” or “where did they end up?”.  The conversation would eventually become centered on our cor

BARCO Tech Tip: Switch Hitter

During a recent meeting with a new client, I introduced our product line to the heads of their video department. While taking them through our seamless switcher product line, one of the team members expressed the lack of "quick switching" as the reason for not using that type of product in their workflow.  Their typical show solution was to sub-switch graphic sources "upstream" of a basic video production switcher.

BARCO TECH TIP: Cable Wisdom: The Good, the Bad, the Repairable

It all started with a note from a friend. I received an e-mail last week from a longtime buddy about video cables. Specifically, he wanted to know if RG-59/ RGB cable ever goes bad. If so, when should he replace it? It was at this point that I wished I worked for one of the fine cable manufacturers we all know and love. Maybe that is why he asked me, instead of one of the fine cable manufacturers. In any case, I rattled off the answer that I imagine most of you are thinking right now: Cable does not go bad.

BARCO Tech Tip: Go Forth and Educate Thyself!

One of the best "tech tips" I can provide is to take a few hours each month and learn something new about our industry.  This education can take many forms.  For example, one could take a formal class, such as a manufacturer's training session, attend a meeting of one of the many professional associations that support the events market, or simply spend time on the web researching and browsing on various association web sites.
