Booth #N441
LAS VEGAS--InfoComm 2012, Booth #N441 -- Vivitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of innovative visual presentation products, will debut a new line-up of installation and large venue projectors at InfoComm 2012. Incorporating high lumen output and robust designs, as well as dual-lamp technology and motorized lens-shift capabilities, Vivitek's new projectors allow installers to be creative with installations. From edge-blending and stacking to warping and interchangeable lens options for more flexibility, Vivitek shows off the various applications that its projector line can perform.

New to the product line this year are the Vivitek D5280U, D8800 and D7180HD projectors. The D5280U is a native WUXGA (1920x1200) projector that comes with a centered lens for simpler set-up. The super-bright D8800 features dual lamp technology and interchangeable color wheels for more diverse applications and installation experiences. The D7180HD is a native 1080p extreme short-throw projector for designs that call for smaller, more intimate solutions.

"With these new projectors, Vivitek continues to grow its line of installation and large-venue focused products," said Edward Gurr, director of product management at Vivitek. "As installations and design become more complex, we provide solutions to installers with projectors that will deliver. By incorporating technologies and features that allow the projectors to be more versatile and flexible, the Vivitek projectors are the solution for the installation industry."

For the business traveler, Vivitek also offers the Qumi Q5 LED pocket projector offers a lightweight solution for presentations without an external source, for those with immediate needs.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
