The United Launch Alliance (ULA), a Boeing Company and Lockheed Martin joint venture located in Centennial, Colo., has deployed F35 wqxga projectors by projectiondesign, a Norwegian company that produces high performance projectors.
At least six projectiondesign F35 wqxga projectors have been installed at the ULA facility, and when each projector’s full WQXGA resolution is used, the units deliver 2560 x 1600 pixels to a pair of huge 417-inch wide, custom Da-Lite screens via Jupiter Catalyst Fusion video-wall processors, according to the company.
The ULA designs, builds and launches Atlas and Delta launch vehicles, and it provides reliable, cost-efficient launch services for the Department of Defense, NASA, the National Reconnaissance Office and other clients.
“ULA’s Centennial facility is responsible for program management, engineering, test and mission support, with the keystone of the headquarters being the operations and support launch center,” said Brian Seid, managing director of Centennial-based Xcite Audiovisuals, LLC, the systems integrator on the project. “This is where engineers and executive staff oversee all of the data required to complete successful launches and missions. It is an integral part of ULA’s operations.”
“The projectiondesign F35 wqxga is the world’s highest-resolution single-chip DLP projector, so in this kind of application it really gets to show what it can do,” said Seid, who added that deploying so many F35 wqxga projectors “was a real benchmark project.” It is the first time so many F35 wqxga projectors’ had been used together at full resolution, he said.
