Vivitek’s New DU9900Z Heavy-duty Laser Projector with Built-in Edge-Blending

Vivitek, a brand of Delta, is announcing the launch of its latest heavy-duty laser projector DU9900Z, with edge-blending and warping technology, motorised lens shift/focus/zoom, and lens position memory for easy installation. With the breakthrough of 22,000 lumens, high brightness and long-term stable quality, it is ideal for ProAV rental, staging, outdoor and large venues with a choice of optional lenses, 360-degree and portrait projection, and 24/7 operation capability for maximum installation flexibility.

As a single-chip DLP laser projector, the Vivitek DU9900Z is equipped with a powerful 0.96-inch DMD chip. It can easily deliver super 22,000 lumens high brightness, 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and WUXGA resolution. The new upgrade of the system makes performance of the DU9900Z more outstanding, and it can run continuously for 30,000 hours in the “Eco Mode”, guaranteeing 24/7 operation. Compared with traditional light source products, it can greatly reduce the maintenance cost for replacing the lamps.

Vivitek’s DU9900Z weighs only 49kg and offers flexible installation options, allowing for almost unlimited mounting flexibility. To meet all installation requirements, the DU9900Z can support with five different motorised lenses with Len Positioning Memory. This enables the position of the lens to be easily adjusted by electrical control, regardless of where the projector is located. This projector can display image sizes ranging from 40” to 500” without image distortion and can be easily calibrated to use H/V keystone correction (four corners). Also, it supports 360-degree installation and can be installed without limited the projection angle.

With support for HDBaseT™ connectivity, image signals can be conveniently transmitted to the projector over long distances via cable and a standard CAT5e/6-LAN interface that has been integrated in the DU9900Z for digital audio content. This allows the projector to be placed up to 100 metres from the source by using only low-cost cabling. In addition, the projector has a 3G-SDI connector, which allows a camera to be used as an image source.

Vivitek has thought about how to make life easier for Systems Integrators (SI), too. That’s why the DU9900 has been engineered to support Art-Net, a royalty-free communication protocol that enables DMX512-A and RDM (Remote Device Management) and lighting data to be transported over an ethernet network. Art-Net uses a simple UDP-based packet structure designed to provide efficient and low overhead data flow. It is used to communicate between ‘Nodes’ (e.g. intelligent lighting instruments) and ‘Server’ (a lighting desk or general purpose computer running lighting control software). Previously, an SI would need to build up two control systems with two operators; one for lighting, and one for the projector. With Art-Net, SIs now only need to build up one system to control the lighting and the projector at the same time, with the projector responding immediately via a compiler program with DMX.

The DU9900Z comes with edge-blending and warping technology. Multiple projectors simultaneously project a combined image for a stunning display and seamless image on large displays. It also supports Vivitek’s PJ-Control tool, which has a simple and easy-to-use UI design and adds further control viewing options, settings, scheduling, and display adjustment features that can be controlled over a network. For added convenience, it also helps users to control multiple projectors remotely, allowing for the creation of projector groups for simultaneous projector control. This not only means a simple setup for users, but it also provides relevant information on projector status so that projectors on the same network can be easily and automatically detected and visualised, with easy navigation combined with an intuitive design making for a completely user-friendly user experience.

Pricing and availability

The DU9900Z is priced at £26,990 ex VAT, and is available immediately.
