Panamorph Inc. announces full compatibility of their DC1 Lens System with the Sony 4K VPL-VW1000ES projector. The DC1 combined with the new Panamorph Cinemount and the Sony VW1000ES projector becomes a fully integrated, highly stylized custom system in both a functional and aesthetic sense. The combination produces stunning images that showcase 4K ultra widescreen performance which was never before available in the home cinema market.

During a CEDIA webinar, Amy Escobio, Front Projector Marketing Manager for Sony, described the DC1 System as the "Ideal Solution" to VPL-VW1000ES 4K owners wishing to attain the highest resolution images in their ultra widescreen home cinemas.

Gordon Shackelford, the new VP of Business Development for Panamorph stated, "In our internal testing of the VPL-VW1000ES, we've seen remarkable clarity in detail, superior light output and superb contrast levels. The image was especially impressive using the DC1 System with ultra widescreen images. It is clear to us that Sony is paving the way for acceptance of 4K as the new standard for home cinema projection. As the VP of Business Development at Panamorph, I'm very excited to see that we can provide 4K support."

The sleek lines and piano black finish of the DC1 is a perfect match for the design of the Sony VW1000ES. The DC1, with its precision tolerance state-of-the-art optics which incorporates custom multilayer dielectric coatings, reproduces images that are so crisp it preserves all the amazing clarity and resolution you've come to expect from watching 4K on big screen D-cinema venues. The DC1 System, used in conjunction with the Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector and a 2.40:1 projection screen, maximizes resolution, eliminates black letterbox bars and provides an 80% larger image and a 30% brighter image as compared to a standard 16:9 home theater.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
