At InfoComm, Eiki announced their new LC-XT6 large venue projector. This unit will replace the LC_XT5 in their line-up. The new 3LCD model is XGA resolution, produces a brightness of 16,000 lumens with 4 lamps, and offers corner keystone correction and edge-blending. There are optional features available, including a smoke-resistant filter, SDI input and nine lens options. The LC-XT6 will begin shipping in July.
The Eiki brand is well respected among their dealers, who tend to focus on markets such as Rental & Staging, House of Worship and other large venue applications. Recent projector market research conducted by Pacific Media Associates indicates that these large venue segments are doing well in comparison to traditional business and education segments.
