The F30 sx+ and F20 sx+ are two new DLP-based projectors from projectiondesign (they are basically upgrades of the F3 and F2). The F30 sx+ is billed as top-of-the-line and is specified at SXGA+ 1400 x 1050 resolution, up to 6500 lumens and 7500:1 contrast ratio. The company singles out specialized applications such as simulators, 2D and 3D visualization, entertainment venues, medical imaging, post-production, control rooms and display signage as targets.
The F30 sx+ adds TI’s BrilliantColor technology and uses the company’s RealColor calibration system, which is configured for the specific application before it leaves the projectiondesign factory. The company says they can also deliver this F30 projector with built-in passive 3D stereo imaging hardware. It also has a range of six user-replaceable bayonet mount lenses.
The pricing for the F30 sx+ is $18,995.
The F20 sx+ also adds BrilliantColor and the company is offering three different BrilliantColor color wheel options. It is specified at SXGA+ resolution 1400 x 1050 resolution, up to 3300 lumens and it is network-enabled. It also uses the RealColor calibration, and three low-dispersion glass lens optics are available (standard zoom lens, 1:1 wide angle lens, and an ultra wide angle with optical pincushion/barrel adjustments for rear projection). It has the Faroudja FLI2310 deinterlacing chipset.
Pricing on the F20 sx+ is $7,495.
