Laser Light Engines Makes First Shipment to Cinema Customer
SALEM, N.H., May 26, 2013 — Laser Light Engines (LLE) Inc., a manufacturer of laser-driven illumination engines and color modules for digital projection, has made the first shipment of a fully configured RGB-laser-powered Universal Laser Retrofit system to an undisclosed cinema customer.
“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 2-D and 3-D digital cinema projectors installed over the past few years,” said Bill Beck, founder and executive vice president.
The multi-engine system incorporates proprietary DSG265 despeckled green color modules to provide constant brightness, good image quality, brilliant colors and smooth, immersive 3-D. The solution also eliminates frequent replacement of expensive xenon arc lamps and can reduce wall plug and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning energy consumption.
“The LLE multi-engine system is projector, chipset, resolution and frame rate agnostic, and is compatible with most major 3-D systems,” Beck said. “Light from the engine can be delivered via optical fiber cable, enabling flexible new cost- and space-saving deployment models.”
Beck said the company will begin shipping other new products in the coming months, including cinema and non-cinema applications such as precision 3-D metrology.
