The Pearl White F50 1080p 3D Multimedia Projector with lens available separately from Barco is a professional 3D projector adaptable to a range of applications requiring 24/7 operation. Suitable fields include virtual reality, simulation and training, visitor attractions, collaboration suites and scientific visualization.
The projector features a brightness of up to 1900 lumens (depending on settings), and has a native resolution of 1080p. This is a 16:9 format. In addition to its native aspect ratio and resolution, through internal scaling the F50 can accommodate a wide range of formats, from 480p SD all the way up to 2560 x 1600.
The F50 features connectivity to accommodate a variety of sources. There are two DisplayPort 1.2 inputs, plus one DVI-DL and one HDMI input. For analog computer graphics or integration with existing A/V systems, there is a VGA port. For professional digital video sources, there are two 3G-SDI ports. Finally, for long-run HDTV signals there is one HDBaseT Ethernet port.
For remote operation, there is an Ethernet port that enables control across a local network, and there is an RS-232 port for integration with automation systems such as Crestron. A USB port enables direct operation from a computer.
Interchangeable Lens Design (Lens Not Included)
Featuring an interchangeable lens design, the F50 is compatible with a range of separately available lenses, including short throw, zoom, and long throw options. Compatible lenses include:
- Standard Zoom (EN51)
- Wide Angle Fixed (EN52)
- Ultra Wide Angle Fixed (EN53)
- Long Throw Zoom (EN54)
- Ultra Wide Angle Zoom (EN55)
- Wide Angle Zoom (EN56)
- Ultra Short Throw (EN57)
DLP Imaging System
The F50 features a filter-free DLP imaging device with a VizSim color wheel, which offers better contrast and color reproduction than many comparable LCD-based systems. In addition, DLP technology is unaffected by UV light, yielding more consistent performance over its lifetime than many alternative technologies.
The Right Color Wheel for Your Configuration
The F50 is available with a range of color wheel options, including High Brightness, VizSim, and VizSim Bright, each with specific characteristics. As the VizSim color wheels focus on color quality, they lower color cross-talk and contamination, and reduce artifacts. The High Brightness option provides high brightness while retaining accurate color reproduction. This particular projector features the VizSim color wheel.
Designed for Portability
At 16.5 lb and a footprint of 13.5 x 12.1", the F50 is designed to provide the performance of an installation projector in a form factor that remains relatively portable.
RealColor Color Management
RealColor is a color management calibration suite that enables edge blending for an unlimited number of projectors, designed to ensure uniform images for multi-channel installations. It provides a quick way to calibrate and set up perfect images - allowing you to adjust them simply by changing characteristics such as color temperature. RealColor works by mathematically calculating each color independently.
Stereo 3D Support
The F50 features stereoscopic 3D support at up to 2560 x 1080 resolution (120 Hz). Active 3D glasses and synchronization device available separately.
Smear Reduction Processing (SRP)
Features flicker-free Smear Reduction Processing (SRP) so that no external filters or shutters are needed - all processing is not only done internally, it's also fully adjustable and configurable. Combined with high frame rates up to 120 Hz, this helps ensure a smear-free image at any resolution and with fast-moving content.
