    16/9 WIDESCREEN PROJECTORS

    In the gallery are the latest photo of one of my three 16:9 widescreen projectors. I am going to use 3 flat screens in an expanded U-shape and they are 8 ft.x 4.5 ft. each and will probably use the yet to be released Matrox Triplehead2go, which will give slightly more than 180 degrees of view and the front screen will be 7 ft. from the pilots view. The new widescreen projectors save having to use mirrors and can be mounted above the cockpit and give plenty of width. Also the quality of these new projectors has dramatically improved over the last couple of years. Further photos to follow as I get the 3 screens setup.
    Cheers......................Brian W

    Gooday Roberto,
    Will post some pics as soon as posible. In the meantime have a look at the following. My projectors are basically identical to the Hitachi tested there.

    The problem you are going to have, as i have found out myself, is that the light output from the other PJ's will 'washout' the pictures of the other pj's. Makes for one bright washed out display! I'm still expiermenting with different set-ups with my new pj's. By the way, 95% of the new pj's ALL do 16x9
