Norxe projectors for visitor attraction applications

Norxe offers the Exhibition industry bespoke solutions for some of their toughest projection challenges.

  • Long Life, Low Maintenance
  • True Solid-State
  • Up to 5,000 RGB Lumens
  • 24/7 reliability and Performance
  • Superior Picture Quality
  • Versatile Design Form and Function

Norxe meets these challenges with innovative industry first True Solid-State, long life-time, low maintenance projectors.

Using Solid-State illumination technology eliminates the need for color wheels and other moving parts within the optical engine. Brightness in color is significantly increased compared to other products available on the market. The optical engine and imaging device are sealed to prevent the impregnation of dirt and to eliminate the need for periodic cleaning. The Texas Instruments DMD has a lifetime of greater than 100,000 hours. The first service interval is due at 50,000 hours.

Features

Long Life and Low Maintenance.
The optical engine and light sources are sealed, eliminating the need for periodical cleaning. The hermetically sealed DLP DMD and the Solid-State LED illumination both have a typical lifetime of more than 100,000 hours. In fact the only serviceable part is the easily replaceable fan cartridge which should be changed at 50,000 hours.

Rugged Construction
Built to be shaken and stirred, to withstand many times the force of gravity. Mounted to motion platforms in any orientation. ‘Lens Lock’ technology allows the lens to be locked to the projector body. Lock the lens adjustment rings and lock the Lens body to 3rd party supports for extreme rigidity. 3G motion compatible.

Resolution
3 resolutions, each with 2 modes (IR and non-IR) provide 6 possible configurations.

Brightness 3,000 RGB Lumen
The P1+ is the brightest LED projector on the market. It uses NO moving parts such as the phosphor wheels and color wheels found in Laser Phosphor products. It is True Solid-State!

24/7 reliability and Performance
The P1 is designed to be continuously run 24/7 in demanding conditions and is warranted for 5 years (extendable to 10 years).

Superior Picture Quality
The P1 uses High Resolution single chip DLP technology.
Single chip DLP is a sequential colour technology. LED refresh rates are high, typically greater than 16x. Lamp based single chip colour wheel rotation / refresh rates by comparison are 2.5x to 3.0x, this can cause the colour breakup phenomenon commonly known as ‘rainbow’ effect. Laser phosphor based single chip colour wheel rotation / refresh rates are typically even lower (2.0x).

LED Superior Color
Because LED produce richer more saturated color the perception of brightness to the human eye is even greater than it’s physically measured brightness. It’s known as the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect. When the colors are more saturated, our eyes interpret it as the color’s luminance and chroma. This makes our eyes see the colors as brighter than they are physically measured.

Superior Optics
Lens options comprise all glass, aspherical, no doublet optical elements & include ‘lens lock’ technology. Scheimpflug adjustment is a standard feature. Lens options are future proofed. Each has been designed to resolve 4K, 5.4 micron pixel pitch.

  • N1 – 0.80 – 1.25:1 @ 4K UHD / WQXGA (0.74-1.16:1 @ WUXGA)
  • N2 – 1.20 – 1.60:1 @ 4K UHD / WQXGA (1.12-1.50:1 @ WUXGA)
  • N3 – 0.63:1 @ 4K UHD / WQXGA (0.59:1 @ WUXGA)

Lens focus, zoom (where applicable) & Iris on all lens options is motorised. Stepper motors are used throughout to ensure high degree positional accuracy.

Horizontal & Vertical Lens Shift is motorised. Stepper motors are used throughout to ensure high degree positional accuracy.

High Contrast
1,600:1 to 8,000:1 sequential contrast (full on / full off). Greater than 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast.

High Dynamic Range
Brightness 0.6kl to 3.0 kl.

  • Dimming technology provides deep black levels whilst ensuring that image highlights are maintained.

Designed for IR
Many factors were taken into consideration when designing the P1, not least the inclusion of IR to support Night Vision Goggle training scenarios. The default IR wavelength is 740 nm, other options are available upon request. 740 nm is the default wavelength because it provides good ANSI Contrast, reduces visible versus IR lens focus variation and removes the need for specialist IR optimised lens options.

Versatile Design
Form and Function

  • Small form factor and lightweight. Dimensions (L x W x H) are 482 x 405 x 213 mm, weight is 17 kg excl. lens.
  • Central lens position and limitless orientation options make the process of designing a system with the P1 much easier.
  • Multiple fixing points (4 x M10 + 4 x M6) on the underside of the projector ensure installation versatility, these are especially useful when performing system upgrades.
  • Accessory interface points (2 x M4 per corner) are available on each corner of the P1 chassis.

Smear Suppression
The P1 supports 2 ms, 4 ms, 6 ms & 8 ms smear suppression + 8 ms Dark Frame Insertion.
