Ultra-Short-Throw Projection
Technologies Mature
Over the past few years, UST products
have improved to a level where
video experts now enthusiastically
embrace these projectors and valueminded
solutions. By Robert Archer
RECENTLY, during an episode of the CE Pro Podcast,
a panel of noted industry video experts and
evangelists that included Robert Zohn, president and
founder of Value Electronics; Joel Silver, CEO and lead
developer, Imaging Science Foundation (ISF); and Jason
Dustal of Murideo, praised ultra-short-throw (UST)
projectors as finally being viable solutions for high-performance
video. It was like a scene from a classic gangster
movie, and that UST products were now " made " and
initiated as high-performance video solutions from the
video gurus.
The stamp of approval for UST projection technology
during the CE Pro Podcast from that noted trio is just
another reason the technology is now a prime option for
integrators to examine as they consider ways to bolster
their AV installations.
Variety of UST Models from Leading Brands
Years ago, before the technologies driving UST products had
fully developed, ultra-short throw systems were more of a
problem-solving solution for specific applications.
Today, as Zohn explained, UST technologies have boasted
major advancements, including dedicated red, green and
blue lasers that help these products produce improved color
capabilities.
" So, we have much better color fidelity color accuracy and
fantastic color saturation; they produce 107% of BT 2020.
No TV could even do that close, [and] we're seeing color
saturation and color accuracy like we have never experienced
before, " noted Zohn. " [They are] doing it on 100- and
120-inch screens, so the experience is fantastic; they have
4K HDR [high dynamic range] capabilities, and they produce
a brilliant high color volume. "

Zohn's Scarsdale, N.Y., business, Value Electronics, has
gained notoriety and credibility throughout the electronics
industry for its annual 4K and 8K " King of TVs "
evaluation event that measures to performance of today's
TVs and other video products. Because of the rapid
maturation of UST products, Zohn says the 2021 event
was the first year Value Electronics' judges looked at UST
products, too.
Companies offering UST products include custom electronics
category-leading manufacturers such as Sony, LG,
Samsung and Epson, as well as other popular global brands
such as BenQ, Optoma, ViewSonic and Hisense. The latter
company arguably stole the show by winning Value Elec
