Projection
« on: November 22, 2005, 11:33:53 pm »

I am shopping for another generation of high powered projection.  The big stuff.  The main tent.  The Grand ballroom.  The 10,000 Lumen plus DLP inventory.  What are you guys using that really gets it done?  Which one of these units will have enough shelf life so that I can afford it in the long run?  How well do the stack?  How well do they edge blend?

Hey Ken,

A buddy of mine works for one of the large national systems integrators that has an office here in atlanta, and does a lot of work with the high end projectors.

He has one very bad Christie story (real bad chimneystack issues in a sub par mounting location), but dozens of stories about minor annoyances with Barcos, and Barco has a major office here in Atlanta, so he should be getting good support.

I've asked them this question before, and he's told me point blank that if he needs to win a bid, he's going to spec a Christie, but that if the install were for him, he would go with Digital Projection.

Digital Projection is also headquartered about 25miles North of Atlanta.

Hope that helps.

My (limited) experience would mimic phil's tale, and those that I know would agree as well.

Karl, you need to post with your full name. Especially when commenting on product.

I am a big fan of Christie. Rock solid user support.

I am just on the fence on the big guns.  The return on them just does not seem to be there.  Now that we will have 12K LCD's available this spring, it seems like that will be the path.  I am just looking to see what to replace the poor old 15SX's with....

I don't have pricing for the big Roadster handy, but the largest of the LX series (LX100) which is a 10k lumen, is gonna run you in the low 20k region after dealer+10%.
