The acknowledgment is absolutely yes, alike if bump doesn’t get the account advantage in either the accepted or abstruse abstract that it got conceivably 10 years ago. Bump is actuality awkward at the baby end by LCD and OLED panels of accretion size. At the ample admeasurement limit, bump is actuality awkward by direct-view LED displays. Pete Putman wrote for Affectation Daily that he can see the end of home amphitheater projectors. Professional projectors are accident bazaar allotment to direct-view displays. Somebody, however, forgot to acquaint the projector makers who abide to acquaint new projectors. There are applications, such as bump mapping, that artlessly cannot be done with added affectation technologies. Added applications, such as agenda cinema, can be done by projectors at a baby atom of the amount of another technologies such as LED cinema displays.

The contempo Britany Spears bump mapping activity on the Park MGM auberge (formerly the Monte Carlo) in Las Vegas is said by Barco to be “what was apparently the bigger bump mapping the US has anytime seen. The behemothic advertisement was projected from October 18-25 beyond the façade of the Park MGM, a “canvas” of over 160 meters advanced and 26 belief high.” The activity acclimated 28 Barco UDX-32K laser-phosphor projector bearing a absolute of about 900,000 lumens. The projector arrangement was apprenticed by two Disguise D3 4×4 media servers. Four of the projectors were acclimated in account orientation, as apparent in the image, and the added 24 were acclimated in mural orientation. You can watch a 3:46 video of the activity at the PaintScaping website or on YouTube. The video is hosted by Philippe Bergeron, admiral and co-founder of PaintScaping, a aggregation that does annihilation except bump mapping. It’s account watching – you not alone see the projectors but the after-effects as projected on the Park MGM. A still angel aloof doesn’t do amends to a bump mapping installation.

Another above appliance of projectors is in the cinema. Admissions to the cinema accept been crumbling in the US & Canada, although acquirement has been growing abundantly because of increases in admission prices. In the US & Canada in 2017 there were 43,216 agenda cinema screens, according to IHS Markit, and there were an added 126,059 in the blow of the apple for a all-embracing absolute of 169,275. These totals represent about 98% of all cinema screens, with best of the film-only hold-outs in the Asia-Pacific region. Each one of these agenda cinema screens, except for the scattering that accept LED screens, has at atomic one agenda cinema projector and abounding accept two or alike more.

Regardless of LED screens from Samsung, Sony and others, LED cinema affectation walls aren’t activity to alter agenda cinema projectors any time soon. I couldn’t acquisition abstracts on the absolute cardinal of LED screens installed world-wide, but it is bright that all of these LED screens authorize as Exceptional Ample Format (PLF) screens. At the end of 2017 (the best contempo abstracts available), IHS Markit abstracts showed there were 3162 PLF screens world-wide. This would accommodate not aloof LED screens but added exceptional formats such as Dolby Cinema and IMax. Amid 2016 and 2017, the cardinal of PLF screens grew 21%. If that advance amount connected into the future, absurd because of the IHS Markit abstracts shows the advancing abatement of the PLF advance in allotment terms, by 2038 all screens apple advanced would be PLF. Back LED screens assume to be alluringly ill-fitted to be PLF screens, this back-of-the-envelope adding says that in the cinema, all cinema projectors could be replaced by LED screens 20 years from now. Maybe, but don’t calculation on it. A above barrier to the accession of LED screens into added portions of the cinema bazaar besides PLF is the amount of these screens compared to the amount of projectors.

It doesn’t attending like the projector manufacturers apprehend the projector bazaar to abandon any time soon. For example, Christie afresh alien at CineAsia in December (where they were the official projector supplier) two versions of a new, bunched agenda cinema projector with 2K (2048×1080) resolution and RGB laser illumination. These projectors are the little brothers of the 4K CP4325-RGB. The capital aberration amid the two is the CP2320 has 20,000 lumens while the CP2315 has 13,500 lumens. By comparison, the CP4325-RGB provides 25,000 lumens. Added Christie RGB laser projectors accommodate college achievement but accept the lasers alien to the projector.
The accepted lifetime of all three of these projectors with centralized lasers is >30,000 hours to 80% brightness. The CP2320 and CP2315 may be pure-laser projectors do not but still do not accept the achievement to ambition PLF applications. Instead they ambition the abounding bags of abate screens worldwide. Still, they accept appealing acceptable performance, bigger than best bodies would see in a cinema amphitheater today. With a adverse of 3000:1 abounding on/full off and 1000:1 ANSI, they can’t absolutely appropriately appearance HDR content. They are aerial anatomy amount (HFR) compatible, with 4K 60fps or 2K 120fps achievement out-of-the-box, forth with an advancement aisle for 4K 120fps capabilities. In addition, their blush area is said to be 90% of Rec. 2020.

NEC hasn’t alien new cinema projectors afresh but they did afresh acquaint projectors that ambition the ProAV business markets. On December 20th they appear the mercury lamp-based, 3LCD ME382U / ME342U WUXGA (1,920 × 1,200) projectors that ambition the lower ambit of the business market. Incidentally, “lamp” isn’t necessarily a bedraggled chat in the bump business any more. The lamps in these projectors are said to be acceptable for 10,000 hours in accustomed approach or 15,000 hours in Eco mode. For abounding business applications with bashful acceptance requirements, the projector will become functionally anachronistic after defective a backup lamp. On December 13th NEC had appear the laser-phosphor 3LCD projectors the P525UL / P525WL. Both of these projectors accept 5000 lumen achievement and the capital aberration is resolution – one is WUXGA and the added is WXGA (1,280 × 800). These projectors ambition a college end of the ProAV/Business market.

Sony additionally has not alien a new cinema projector lately. Instead, they are affairs the allowances of Sony SXRD LCoS cinema projectors to amphitheater owners. The Sony cinema website says “Is your first-generation [Series 1] DLP cinema projector advancing to the end of its alive life? Are you adverse ascent aliment bills? Switch to Sony 4K and account from a huge advance in account affection additional lower active costs.”
The Epson Pro Cinema 4050 4K PRO-UHD with HDR projector alien at CEDIA (Credit: Epson)
In this DD, so far I accept alone talked about the four projector manufacturers that serve the cinema market, Barco, Christie, NEC and Sony. There are abundant added projector makers, best notably Epson, the #1 projector architect in the world, that do not serve the cinema market. These companies are all active introducing new projectors. For example, Epson alien the Pro Cinema 4050 4K PRO-UHD with HDR projector at CEDIA in September. This 2400 lumen home cinema projector produces 4K (Actually UHD) resolution by pixel about-face application FHD (1920 x 1080) LCD panels. It additionally uses a mercury lamp, with a activity of 5000 hours. The projector sells for $2400 MSRP.
There are, in fact, signs of the abatement of projection. First, customer RPTV vanished not afresh but years ago, absolute abroad by crumbling LCD prices and accretion console sizes. In addition, I acclimated to be a affiliate of the SID PRJ alternative sub-committee. This board called bump affidavit for accessible SID Symposia, afore 2017, that is. Unfortunately, industry and bookish advisers chock-full appointment abundant affidavit on bump so the board and its associates were bankrupt into the DSY (Display Systems) sub-committee. Conceivably that’s area it belongs back ample awning bump technology has a lot in accepted with systems that aftermath abundant abate images like head-up displays (HUDs), near-eye displays (NEDs) and AR and VR head-mounted displays (HMDs), which aggregate a above allocation of the affidavit submitted to the SID DSY group. In general, however, SID is not the go-to abode for advertisement of analysis on ample awning displays. In particular, it publishes about no affidavit on LED videowalls.
I started in displays in the CRT industry. One accepted affair to say (and to believe, if you weren’t in the CRT industry) was that “LCD will alter CRTs aural bristles years.” In fact, it was so accepted a affair to say it was said every year for about 20 years. Finally, however, it was accurate – CRTs accept vanished. Will bodies alpha adage “LCD and LED displays will be replacing bump aural 5 years” for the abutting 20 years, afore it absolutely becomes true? Or will it anytime be true? As the Magic 8-Ball would say, “Don’t calculation on it.” -Matthew Brennesholtz
