    MacBook Mini-TOSLINK and QLab

    Bump - did you ever get an answer to this? Was just researching the same thing for the purposes of doing multichannel playback from a mac to a 5.1 home theater receiver.

    Best paint treatment for a projection surface?

    FWIW, I've prepared several surfaces including drywall and canvas with FP Screen Goo and had excellent results. The 'digital grey' variety yields good contrast, diminishes hotspotting, and reduces glare from incidental light. NB It's a bit finicky to apply and I recommend the primer. If you're...

    Ultra-thin bezel LCD displays

    TRUTH! I see this for DVD and interactive across the board. Client: 'We want you to make us a DVD/installation.' Us: 'Great what's your content?' Client: 'Content? Isn't that the DVD?' Really though, my question was about the stability of your WATCHOUT deployment. Is it stable enough for...

    Ultra-thin bezel LCD displays

    This is a great wealth of information, so thanks to everyone, especially for the forewarnings about warranty considerations. The actual procurement will be done by the end owner and client so that shouldn't be an issue but I'm glad that was brought to my attention. I made a preliminary...

    Ultra-thin bezel LCD displays

    Welp... hrm. Thank you for that - I wasn't aware of that. I know plasmas kick ass in the blacks department, so I'm not mad at that. Not thrilled about the power consumption but I understand the burn-in issue has largely been mitigated by pixel-oscillation stuff.... Got a particular model in...

    Ultra-thin bezel LCD displays

    Hi folks- Anybody got a recommendation on a line of ultra-thin bezel LCDs? I'm doing a spec for a year-long installation in some office building lobbies, etc. and don't have a lot of familiarity with the offerings in that segment. Looking for 1080p, probably 50" or so, 16:9, good...

    220V Step-up transformer

    BTW in case you see some red flags here: RP, short throw (.8) from about 5' onto a 6' wide collection of rectangular and square Da-lite RP wide-angle Da-Plex panels. Ambient light from a window in front of (viewer side) and about 90 degrees off-axis from the viewing surface. I'm thinking...

    220V Step-up transformer

    You know it's sometimes takes an expert to give the simplest advice. I think you couldn't be more right in the sense that I can (must) take a 3k lumen hit in exchange for stepping back to 120V. I'd rather not double-stack due to the install window I'm dealing with but that Panasonic will be...

    220V Step-up transformer

    Thanks for your reply- I think you must be right. If I'm using a 20A 120V circuit I don't know where the other 2600W would come from. That puts me back to square one asking how to pull 200-240V out of 1 or more 120V circuits. I've seen somewhat-related discussions on the issue and am...

    220V Step-up transformer

    Thanks very much for that. I don't want to cross-post but do you think my question is in the wrong category? Mods - should I pull and post in electric / lighting? Thanks, N

    220V Step-up transformer

    Gents - forgive a noob question but I'm looking at an application where I want to run a 200-240V 15k lumen projector off one or more 110V circuits (museum setting with no access to 220 or 3-phase). It seems a continuous-use voltage converter is indicated, and as I've seen recommendations to...
