Eiki International announced the new EK-623UW (white chassis) WUXGA (1920×1200) laser projector. Using DLP technology, it’s specified to have 6,000 lumens of brightness, a 100,000:1 contrast ratio (with the company’s Extreme Black Mode) and uses blue phosphor laser technology with a 20,000 hour light source life. Eiki is aiming it at both large meeting rooms and lecture halls. In addition, the EK-623UW claims to cover 97 percent of Rec. 709 color space.
The unit’s 360-degree free orientation projection capabilities (vertical and horizontal) are due to its SSD (laser) lighting technology. Lens shift ranges include (horizontal) +/- 15 percent, (vertical): +/- 50 percent, keystone correction H: +/- 20 °, V: +/- 20 °, with four-corner capability and the availability of eight optional lenses (including a .36:1 Ultra Short Throw lens).
In addition to flexible orientation, the EK-623UW inputs include HDBaseT, two HDMI inputs, DVI-D and VGA in, along with connectors for monitor out (VGA out), LAN, RS232C, remote control in and both 3D-sync in and 3D-sync out.
Eiki’s new EK-623UW DLP projector lists for $8,995 (without a lens and those are from $695 to $8,995). Here are all the specs.
