Many congratulations to our partner Eiki. The company’s EK-350U 3LCD Projector with HLD LED technology has won ProjectorCentral’s prestigious InfoComm 2019 Best of Show Award. Offering 4500 ANSI lumens brightness and WUXGA resolution, as well as 3 LCD design for excellent image quality and reliability, the EK-350U’s ColorSpark HLD LED projection system lets those in the room see everything that’s on the screen in sharp definition with vibrant, clear colours.
There were several reasons for the award:-
- notable achievement in performance specs
- innovative or unusual technical design features that benefit usability, flexibility or efficiency of set-up, or ongoing maintenance needs
- advantages in size, form factor or visual design
- great value at the product’s assigned introductory street price.
Eiki was the first company in North America to ship a projector with ColorSpark HLD LED LCD technology. Because the EK-350U’s HLD LED technology emits four times the light of many other projectors’ LED technology, the result is stunning visuals, with the screen appearing as much as three times brighter while retaining brilliant color performance. An additional benefit of the projector’s integrated HLD LED technology is its rapid power on and off capability.
Overcoming the challenges of LED
The low-maintenance and cost benefits of solid-state laser and LED light sources are widely recognised, but as the demand for more lumens has climbed, LEDs have been left out of the party due to traditionally low brightness and concerns about colour quality. By using the cutting-edge Philips HLD LED technology combined with 3-chip LCD imaging, EIKI’s EK-350U offers a punchy 4,500 lumens with good colour and a 25,000-hour lifespan in a surprisingly compact and cost-effective package. Along with its even brighter sister model, the 5,500 lumen EK-355U, it represents a glimpse of what the next generation of LED could mean to the projector industry.
