Norway’s projectiondesign will use IBC to debut its cineo35 2.5k – the world’s first compact projector capable of showing images at a native 2560 x 1600 resolution. By offering an uncompressed and unaltered display of 2K data, the cineo35 2.5k gives the fine detail view that 1080p projectors are unable to provide without cropping or scaling the image. Additionally, because of the extra resolution available, the projector can display full 2K in a window and still offer space for editing tools on the same screen. This makes the cineo35 2.5k the perfect projector for small to medium-sized rooms where colour accuracy and performance are the most important criteria.
The projector comes with multiple preset calibration profiles as standard, and users can switch quickly between colour spaces and calibration settings. Using projectiondesign’s RealColor colour management suite, calibration accuracy is guaranteed to be within 0.002 points from any target. To provide the best possible performance, the projection lenses and optics in the cineo35 2.5k have been custom designed for beyond 2.5k resolution. All lenses use special aspherical glass elements and enhanced, low-dispersion glass for increased contrast, improved colour saturation and excellent sharpness, resulting in unsurpassed image clarity and detail.
“Up until now, operators of small to medium-sized edit suites and preview rooms had to use large, cumbersome, and noisy projectors if they wanted to display 2K resolution or higher,” commented Anders Løkke, marketing & communications manager, projectiondesign.
“The cineo35 2.5k offers performance similar to, or better than, any digital cinema projector while weighing a fraction of the amount and measuring only half a metre across. Yet it can still throw an image up to 4m wide and, because it is based on Texas Instruments’ DLP technology, what you see in preview is exactly what the movie-goer will see in a DLP Cinema environment.”
The cineo35 2.5k offers four discrete high-bandwidth inputs (two HDMI 1.4, two Dual Link DVI), and offers optional 3G SDI input boards. It also comes with a choice of lens options, and is available in both traditional lamp, as well as an LED version.
