Eiki International Announces EK-810U/811W
8000 Lumen Laser Projectors
Red and Blue Lasers provide superior color, brightness, and longevity
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – InfoComm Booth #C7421… Eiki International, Inc. a world leader for over 40 years in projection technology, announces the new EK-810U WUXGA (1920x1200) and EK-811W WXGA (1280x800) Laser Projectors. Featuring 8,000 Lumen brightness, a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, and the superior color performance resulting from the use of both blue and red lasers, the EK-810U/811W support versatile LAN control and carries the added benefit of an IP6X Dust Ingress Test rating for long-term reliability. The result is a projector that delivers superior brightness and clarity in a cost-effective package that redefines value for professional large venue installations.
Among their numerous features, the new EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors delivers stunningly vivid colors as a result of its use of both blue and red lasers. Compared to more traditional laser-based projection systems that incorporate a blue laser only, the addition of the red laser results in greater brightness (8000 Lumen with a 16:10 aspect ratio), a higher red color ratio without diminishing either blue or green performance, along with increased Gamut Area Ratio performance. Given that laser technology is less fragile than traditional lamp-based systems and offer nearly instant on/off performance, the capabilities of the new EK-810U/811W make these projectors an exceptional choice for applications where superior image quality is essential.
The new Eiki EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors provides a wealth of connectivity options that result in greater flexibility in terms of both signal access and control. For access on a LAN (Local Area Network), the system provides RJ-45 connectors for both HDBaseT and Ethernet. The system also provides support for RS-232 control as well as an input for a dedicated wired IR (infrared) remote. Equally notable, the projector includes a USB Type A connector—enabling the system to operate over the network using a Wi-Fi dongle. Additional connectivity for the Eiki EK-810U/811W includes both HDMI™ input and output, a DVI-D connector, and VGA, I/O.
Of particular note, the new Eiki EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors carries an IP6X Dust Ingress Test rating. Given that many projectors are suspended, for example, from the ceiling and, as a result, are difficult to access for regular cleaning, the EK-810U’s IP6X dust-free rating ensures the projector will deliver exceptional performance and equally impressive long term reliability.
Eiki’s EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors offers horizontal / vertical lens shift and h/v keystone correction, thus facilitating versatile placement. There are six optional lenses available for use with the system, encompassing throw/width ratios from 0.75-5.50.
Steve Rubery, Eiki's National Sales Manager, commented on the company’s new EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors. “Eiki’s EK-810U/811W offer exceptional performance, a rich feature set, and superior connectivity options. As laser projectors, the EK-810U/811W use a 0.67-inch digital micro-mirror device (DMD) imaging system that contributes to the projector’s vivid colors and superior clarity. And since lasers create the exact colors that are required without having to absorb or otherwise block white light, system efficiency is considerably greater. I’m confident integrators will find much to like in this new product offering.”
The EIKI EK-810U/811W Laser Projectors carry an MSRP of $17,995 and $14,995 w/o lens. The products are expected to be available early Q3, 2016.
