According to Christie, their new Entero line is the first rear-projection display system to feature an LED-based projector. Who knew? Designed for facilities where large displays are needed but front-projection can be problematic, like AT&T’s Global Network Operations Center, or the NORAD control room from the movie War Games, the Entero projectors feature a zero maintenance design with no lamps, filters or color wheels that need replacing. And since the LEDs are rated at more than 50,000 hours, the projector is designed to run 24/7 for a period of over 5 years.
At the moment there are 2 Entero projectors available from Christie, an SXGA+ model with 1400×1050 resolution and a WUXGA model with 1920×1200 resolution, and both feature 600 ANSI lumens of brightness.
