Liesegang brings out the home cinema superlative: True HDTV. LUXOR II

Press Release  |  Sep 23, 2002

Düsseldorf, 23rd September 2002--Just in time for photokina: Liesegang is to present its most powerful projector for the premium market in home cinema.

Using the super-chip by Texas Instruments, the HDVT DMD, Liesegang offers true HDTV resolution with 1280 x 720 pixels in its multi-media projector LUXOR II. The contrast of 1200:1 is only made possible with the use of the MD principle, that is with the dark metal layer process. Producing 1000 ANSI lumens the projector commands the optimum for deep, rich black and brilliant white.

This premium line projector is distinguished by clear design in timeless good taste. Customers can choose the casing according to their own preferences to harmonize with their individual home setting. Our development and design crew can magic any style from choice wood veneer , polished aluminium to a "rust-look" à la Mad Max. LUXOR II with its 17 inch format will fit with ease into a HIFI unit or look impressive as a table projector. Or with a new special fixture it can be discretely and elegantly integrated into the ceiling.

"Our targets were uncompromising, ambitious and innovative" says Dr. Dirk Batholdtsen, general manager and super-brain at Liesegang Electronics Ltd., Liesegang's development subsidiary. " Background noise level close to zero, extremely high contrast range for the cinema freak yet without loss of brilliance and then many features that up to now were in the realm of dream. Cables hidden discretely and aesthetically behind a flap, no more trailing mass of cables. No unnecessary knobs or switches on the projector.

And clambering up that ladder to start your home cinema – a thing of the past." An intelligent switch system allows the LUXOR II to be started without remote control. Keystone correction on the vertical and horizontal axis made possible with Side Mode. And: as a special option the beamer can be fitted with the warp processor and in this way project onto rounded or sloping surfaces. The warp chip is an idea born in the Liesegang development team and sets new standards in electronic image correction.

"The demand for the LUXOR II limited edition is very high indeed and we hope we will be able to cope with the rush in the short space of time available " Stefan Schukat, Sales Director for Germany, remarks with visible satisfaction over the success of the new Liesegang projector.
