Satellite Modular Laser System – New, revolutionary projector advancement from Digital Projection

In home_page, Product News, Projection, Projection Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Digital Projection, the Emmy-award winning manufacturer of high-performance laser projection and fine-pitch LED video wall solutions is pleased to officially launch its game-changing Satellite Modular Laser System (Satellite MLS). The keystone feature of this new, revolutionary system is the separation of the pure laser light engine, with the associated power and thermal management, to a remote location. This enables a compact and virtually silent projection ‘Head’ that primarily contains optics, video processing, and cooling related to the image modulators. Providing flexible integration options unlike anything on the market today, Satellite MLS promises to be an incredible leap forward for the AV industry.

Given the modular components that comprise the system, integrators can easily design a custom one-to-many, or many-to-one configuration between the MLS light sources and the Satellite projection Heads:

In a one-to-many configuration, a single 10,000 lumen MLS light module illuminates multiple projection Heads, equally splitting and providing matched brightness to each Head through the life of the illumination system. Intelligent control mechanisms ensure lumen matching of up to four projection Heads, while dramatically reducing system downtime for scheduled maintenance.
