With a countless number of considerations to take into account, including the layout of the design, site limitations, and the nature of presentation, the system integrators responsible for making the designs a reality need large-venue projectors that can deal with these concerns and ensure a seamless execution of the designer’s vision. A way for these large-venue projectors to be able to meet these needs is with their use of optional lenses. This is because optional lenses give large-venue projectors the flexibility to deal with some of the spatial constraints described above.
In this article we will explore this issue by answering the following questions:
• What are large venue projectors? What are optional lenses?
• Why are optional lenses necessary for executing designs that use large venue projectors?
• What makes BenQ’s optional lenses the ideal solution?
How all of this applies to the discussion in the beginning of this article is that by using optional lenses large venue projectors can change-up things like throw ratio (the ratio of the distance from the lens to the screen to the screen width) and lens shift (the ability to adjust the direction of the lens), instead of having them be set because of a fixed lens. This means that if a large venue projector is being used in a space that requires a long throw ratio it can attach an optional lens with corresponding specifications, then when the same projector is used in a smaller, tighter space it can change its lens to one with a shorter throw ratio. This is the above-mentioned flexibility which system integrators are looking for.
To make these ideas more concrete we will explore two separate scenarios that exemplify the need for optional lenses: one a conference hall presentation with a single projector, and the other a video wall exhibit utilizing multiple projectors.
There are two key reasons why BenQ’s optional lenses stand above the lenses from other brands:
