Six Optoma W319UST projectors were chosen. The W319UST is bright, boasting 3,330 ANSI lumens, and a throw ratio of 0.27:1 means that it can project a 100” image from less than 0.5m away. Ultra-short throw projectors mean that they can be installed so close to the screen that they avoid any shadows being cast across the screen from the presenter(s).
It also provides a complete package for engaging viewers with many new features, including two HDMI inputs, powered USB port, powerful 16W built-in speaker, improved lamp life, compact chassis and a completely new mounting system for a fast and simple set-up.
As well as this, the projector includes a ‘high altitude mode’, meaning that the fans can be made to run faster to allow more air flow through the projector in order to keep it cool.
The six projectors were mounted in custom made projector cages and hung from an overhead truss.
A dandypunk said: “We had limited space and it was important that the audience and performers could get as close to the projection surface as possible without creating shadows.
“They were within our budget and also had a high altitude mode, which was needed for the Park City elevation.”
