Laser Light Engines, Inc., (LLE), a leader in laser illumination for high brightness digital cinema and performance projection, announced the first shipment of a fully configured RGB-laser powered Universal Laser Retrofit System to a leading global innovator in the cinema space.
"The shipment of this system marks a big step forward for LLE, toward full commercialization of our universal laser upgrade solution for the nearly 100,000 global 2D and 3D digital cinema projectors installed over the past few years," said laser projection pioneer Bill Beck, founder and EVP at LLE.
According to the company, the multi-engine system incorporates LLE's recently announced, flagship DSG265™ despeckled GREEN color modules, and provides constant brightness, outstanding image quality, brilliant colors and smooth, immersive 3D. In addition to providing numerous image quality benefits, the LLE solution eliminates frequent replacement of expensive Xenon arc lamps, and can reduce wall plug and HVAC energy consumption.
"The LLE multi-engine system is projector, chipset, resolution and frame rate agnostic, and is compatible with most major 3D systems," Beck said. "And the light from the engine can be delivered via optical fiber cable, enabling flexible new cost- and space-saving deployment models."
In addition to this major milestone for digital cinema, Beck said LLE will be shipping other new products in the coming months, including both cinema and non-cinema applications such as precision 3D metrology.
