Fixed Screen Questions - dnp LaserPanel

 

    Can I get the dnp LaserPanel in different sizes and formats?
    No, the dnp LaserPanels are only available in 100” 16:9.
     
    What is the difference between the dnp LaserPanel and the dnp LaserPanel Touch?
    There are several differences. See the datasheet for a detailed side-by-side comparison of features. The screens are very different: The screen for the dnp LaserPanel has a soft screen with wide viewing cone whereas the screen for the dnp LaserPanel Touch has a rigid screen with high brightness. The projectors are basically the same except for the build-in IR camera in the dnp LaserPanel Touch projector. Besides this the dnp LaserPanel Touch comes with IR pens, projector mount and WiFi dongle, which are not included (but optional) for the dnp LaserPanel.
     
    What are the different optical screen technologies used in the dnp LaserPanels?
    We use two different high contrast optical screen technologies: Linear lens technology and circular lens technology. The screen for the dnp LaserPanel has a linear (lenticular) lens structure, with reflector on the front surface, which enables very good uniformity and wide viewing angles but is sensible to touching. The screen for the dnp LaserPanel Touch has a half-circular (Fresnel) lens structure and reflector on the backside, which enables higher brightness and a durable surface for frequent touching and easy cleaning.
     
    Which dnp LaserPanel should I choose?
    It depends on several things. First of all it depends on if you require touch interactivity or not. If so, the dnp LaserPanel Touch is the obvious choice. If this is not required the ambient light level in your room, audience seating, projector position and budget are other considerations for choosing the right product.
     
    Why can’t I position the projector above the screen on a dnp LaserPanel?
    The linear lens technology has a triangular shaped lens structure with reflection area downwards and absorption area upwards. If the projector is positioned above the screen the incoming light from the projector will be absorbed, like the ambient light. You could position the projector above the screen if you reverse the screen but in this case the image contrast will be influenced by ambient light from above.
     
    Is the image quality better if the projector is positioned below the screen in a dnp LaserPanel Touch?
    Yes, image contrast is better with the projector below the screen because the backside of the circular Fresnel lens is not reflecting incoming ambient light effectively. When the Fresnel center is upwards and the projector is above the screen some ambient light is reflected by the frontside of the lens. This situation is however better for interactive use and still superior to other ultra-short-throw solutions.
     
    What touch technology is used in dnp LaserPanel Touch?
    The projector is equipped with an IR camera that registers the position and action of an IR pen. A Laser Curtain for finger touch is available as an option.
     
    Can I clean the screens on dnp LaserPanels?
    The screen for the dnp LaserPanel Touch has a very durable surface, which is designed for touching and easy cleaning. Use a dry eraser, damp cloth, monitor cleaner or window cleaner to get the screen back to as it was new. The screen for dnp LaserPanel is quite different. It has a relatively sensitive surface structure that is not suitable for touching because the lenses can get damaged. With carefulness the surface can be cleaned with a feather duster or a damp cloth moving sideways along the lenses, not across.
     
    How do I do maintenance on the projector?
    In normal environments (i.e. conference rooms) you should not need to do other maintenance than to dust off the projector with a feather duster or soft cloth once in a while. Make sure that dust or other particles or items are not covering the ventilation openings. If the glass on the projector is dirty, clean it with window cleaner, monitor cleaner or similar detergent that you use to clean glasses, mirrors, spectacles, etc. If the cabinet is dirty use a water-soaked cloth to wipe it clean. In dusty environments, i.e. high pollution areas, it may be necessary to vacuum clean or replace the dust filter inside the projector (see the manual on how to do this). The frequency, of course, depends on the environment. Note! there is a timer function in the projector that can be set to give an alert when it is time to look after or replace the dust filter.
     
    How do I clean the LaserPanel cabinets?
    The dnp LaserPanel cabinets are standard office furniture with a painted surface. Use a soft cloth to un-dust the cabinet or use a water-soaked cloth to wipe it clean if more dirty.
     
    What does the WiFi dongle do?
    The WiFi dongle that is included with the dnp LaserPanel Touch (optional for dnp LaserPanel) makes a local WiFi network that can be accessed from nearby wireless devices after installing a free app. Connected devices can then send information wirelessly to the screen, which is a perfect way of collaborating without the hassle of cables. The screen can be shared by up to four users simultaneously.
     
    Can I browse the Internet when connected to the WiFi dongle?
    No, this is not possible. If you want to share a browsing session you have to connect to a network with Internet access and connect to the projector by cable.
     
    Do you have the dnp LaserPanels in other color options?
    FNo, the dnp LaserPanels only have one color option. The screens have slightly different frame design but the basic color is black. The projectors are white.
     
    Can I buy the projector separately?
    No, the projector is a component of the dnp LaserPanel and is not sold separately.
     
    How is the dnp LaserPanels shipping?
    The dnp LaserPanel ships in three boxes: 1) Screen frame, 2) Screen surface, 3) Projector. The dnp LaserPanel Touch ships also in three boxes: 1) Screen, 2) Projector mount, 3) Projector.
     
    Can I install the LaserPanel in portrait mode?
    Yes it can be done – but only with the projector to the left side of the screen. It is important that the outgoing airflow from the projector is upwards and thus the projector must be to the left of the screen. Please note that if/when you do this you must pay attention to the light sources from left side.
     
    How does the motorized projector cabinet function?
    The cabinet is operated with 100-240VAC 50/60Hz. When pressing a button on the top of the cabinet the door automatically opens and brings the projector in position. Press the button again to close the door and hide away the projector when it is not in use.
     
    Is there a manual version of the projector cabinet?
    Currently we do not offer such a solution.
     
    How do I align the projector to perfectly fit the screen?
    Inside the cabinet the projector is mounted on an arm that allows three axis adjustments. The cabinet enables other three axis adjustments.
     
    Can I buy the mechanics inside only and build my own cabinet?
    Currently we do not offer such a solution.
     
    Are the cabinets made by dnp denmark?
    The projector cabinet is designed by dnp denmark but manufactured by a different Danish company. Same company manufactures all cabinets and accessories.
     
    Do I have to assemble the cabinets?
    No, we ship cabinets assembled. All you need to do is hang it on a flat wall and mount front door(s), drawer(s), shelf(s) etc. if you have purchased these accessories.
     
    Can I get the LaserPanel cabinets in a different color than white?
    White is our standard color. We can provide the cabinets in black at extra cost and delivery time but no other color options available.
     
    What is the difference between cabinets 210, 220 and 230?
    The different side cabinets have exactly same height and depth, the only difference is the width. The cabinets have different numbers of compartments but each compartment is same size.
     
    Can I get the furniture in custom size?
    We offer different standard sizes but no custom sizes available.
     
    What kind of wood is used in the cabinets?
    All cabinets are made from high quality MDF and painted with polyurethane painting after assembly.
     
    Can I get the cabinet doors in a different color than white?
    White is our standard color for the wooden door. We can provide the wooden door in black at extra cost and delivery time but no other color options available. If you go for a fabric door you can choose black, silver (grey) or white. No other colors available.
     
    Why should I choose a fabric door oppose to a wooden door?
    The fabric door is transparent to IR signals and soundwaves, which makes it possible to communicate with IR devices and listening to speakers with the door closed. In addition more color options available.
     
    What is a cover?
    In the top of the cabinets there is an opening for easy wiring of cables from electrical units on top of cabinets. These openings can be covered with different brushed aluminum covers for a nice aesthetic finishing. We offer three different covers: Type A with an oblong hole for wiring to the side, type B without a hole for no wiring and type C with a squared hole for wiring to the front of the cabinet. See pictures on our website for better understanding.
     
    How many drawers do I need for a compartment?
    There is room for two drawers in a cabinet compartment but you can choose to install one drawer only. Then the other half of the compartment is open.
     
    Do I need to order shelf/shelves for the cabinets?
    All side cabinets include a shelf for each compartment that separates the compartment in two. You only need to order more shelves if you want further separation of cabinet compartments.
     
    Do I need to order wall mount(s) for cabinets?
    Wall mount is included for the projector cabinet but NOT INCLUDED for the side cabinets. You must thus order one wall mount per side cabinet. Please note that different mounts are used for different cabinets.
