b Compact and light
Designed for 24/7 use, the versatile F12 DLP® projector offers a wide
choice in configurations with different resolutions and lenses making
it the perfect choice for various applications: simulation and training,
small- and mid-size venues and visitor attractions. The F12 projector
combines high resolution, outstanding brightness, contrast and
image quality in a compact magnesium chassis of only 3.5 kg. And as
there are no user-serviceable parts included in the projector,
servicing and maintenance is limited to a bare minimum for a low
total cost of ownership.
Choose from WUXGA, 1080p, or SXGA+ resolution
When computer-based images with maximum detail and accuracy are the primary
concern, WUXGA is the ideal resolution and it's fully compatible with the 1,600 x
1,200 format. For video applications, an 1,920 x 1,080 (1080p) resolution shows HD
video and data in excellent quality. Whether for computer or video content, wide
screen or legacy 4:3, the F12 always has the right resolution available for your
DLP technology, RealColor and VIDITM for stunning images
Geared with single-chip DLP technology, the F12 offers reliable images with high
brightness and contrast for applications that need to run continuously. What's more,
DLP technology will not degrade when subjected to UV light. Philips' VIDI™
technology enables dynamic lamp driving over time, and enhances image quality
through reducing grey scale artifacts, adding to color saturation, enhancing contrast,
and improving lamp stability. Unlike non-VIDI based projectors, the lamp power is
digitally controlled, as is its performance over time.
RealColor for multi-channel systems
Thanks to the unique color matching and calibration tools provided in the RealColor
F12 series
management suite, the F12 allows you to easily calibrate and set up images for edge
blending and multi-channel installations. Deep black levels and a high level of black
and white uniformity all add to the projector's impressive performance. As a custom
option, manual optical color matching is also offered.
Low Frequency Maintenance program
The Low Frequency Maintenance program can be set to automatically notify you of
the required service and maintenance. When running continuously, moving parts
such as fans and color wheels require periodic replacement to secure operation.
The lifetime of any component is 8,000 hours, or a year of non-stop operation.
