The top products of the past year are here once again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2015-2016 Products Of The Year.
The Barco EN57 ultra short-throw projector lens takes high-quality, large-screen imaging to the next level. This low-distortion, all-glass lens offers high-quality large-screen projection from a revolutionary short distance. Offering the world’s shortest throw ratio (0.28:1), you can create a much larger image or a more compact installation. This lens allows you to increase your image size with 263% or shorten your projection distance with 62%. “The benefits of a lens like this are going to change options for designers working in demanding theatrical environments, as well as those putting together permanent installations in places where throw distance doesn’t exist,” says our lens-minded judge. barco.com
