Digital Projection’s Satellite Modular Laser System Now Available in North America

Separates light engine from power and thermal management.

Digital Projection has officially launched its attention-grabbing Satellite Modular Laser System (Satellite MLS) for the North American market. The keystone feature of this system is the separation of the pure laser light engine, with the associated power and thermal management, to a remote location. This enables a compact and virtually silent projection ‘head’ that primarily contains optics, video processing, and cooling related to the image modulators.

Given the modular components that comprise the Satellite MLS system, integrators can design a custom one-to-many, or many-to-one configuration between the MLS light sources and the Satellite projection heads:

  • In a one-to-many configuration, a single 10,000-lumen MLS light module illuminates multiple projection heads, equally splitting and providing matched brightness to each head through the life of the illumination system. Intelligent control mechanisms ensure lumen matching of up to four Satellite projection heads, while reducing system downtime for scheduled maintenance.
  • In a many-to-one configuration, multiple 10,000-lumen MLS light modules can be combined to illuminate a single, ultra-compact Satellite projection head. This creates compact and quiet projection heads that produce up to 40,000 lumens.

The Satellite MLS uses fiber optics to efficiently and safely transport pure RGB laser illumination from the light source to the Satellite head. In addition to the on-screen benefits that RGB laser illumination offers, including REC2020 color space, the Satellite MLS’ design allows the light source and projection head to be separated by as much as 100 meters.
