The portholes in the gallery exhibit features five types of sea environment: tropical open ocean, polar sea, coastal waters, ocean depths and tropical coral. The ultra short throw projectors are ideal for this kind of installation as they can be positioned close to displays without any on screen shadowing and offer a brightness of 3,100 ANSI lumens.
Casio was a natural selection for technical manager, Mark Wall, due to its alternative and highly sustainable LED and Laser hybrid light source. Thanks to the projectors’ instant on/off function, there was also no waiting time so projectors can display content immediately, unlike traditional lamp based models, which often involve lengthy start up times due to heating up processes of the bulbs.
“Previously, with our lamp based projectors, we were spending £300 every time we had to change a lamp,” says Wall. “If you’re doing that a few times a year for several projectors, that’s a few thousand pounds easily spent. Casio provides a much more economical and environmentally sound solution. The fact that there are no hidden costs or replacement bulbs to consider was also a huge bonus for us, as was the reliability and outstanding performance of the technology in terms of brightness and ease of operation. The installation process was also simple as we could position the projectors as close to the screen as we wanted.”
