World’s slimmest rear-projection cube display released


The world’s slimmest rear-projection cube display has just been released, which is suitable use in traffic management centers (TMCs), city control rooms, parking operations facilities, TV studios or other IP-based video-wall installations. Launched by German manufacturer, Eyevis, the Slim-Cubes feature the lowest depth currently available, are wall-mountable, and are faster to install and easier to service than equivalent units. With a depth of only 16.6in (42.2cm), the new Slim-Cubes are extremely space-saving, and as a rear-projection design system, the units can be mounted directly on a wall without a substructure. There is no requirement for space behind the Cubes for ventilation, service-access or support structure. The easy-handling concept, with front-support, also enables a quick and easy setup and increases the system’s operational reliability, due to reduced downtimes during maintenance. Featuring a 50in (127cm) screen diagonal and Full HD resolution, the Slim-Cubes are slim enough to can be installed even in the smallest control rooms and TV studios. The Cubes measure 43.5 x 41.7 x 16.6 in (110.7 x 106 x 42.2cm), with a Full HD display resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 (16:9) and brightness of 370cd/m².

In the Slim-Cube’s elaborate housing, all cable and air ducts are integrated, with the result that in combination with the front support, there is no need for service access or ventilation space behind the cubes. Due to the single-module-design of the projection unit and the front access of the cubes, it is possible to build a video wall without having a projection unit in the cube chassis (frame) during setup. After the installation process, the projector units can be easily inserted into the chassis and connected from the front or back, and can then be adjusted using the system’s software. Projector units that are damaged or require servicing are simply removed from the cubes and replaced by an exchange-unit. The cube is immediately ready for use and the removed projector unit can be serviced, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum. Due to the discrete screen clamp technology the cubes have extremely small bezels between adjacent displays. The robust and self-supporting case allows the cubes to be placed on top of each other, without an additional supporting structure.
