Ingenuity of custom installer produces entertainment marvel in Florida outdoor theater

Picture this: you're hosting friends in your spacious ocean-front backyard, with your guests enjoying the view, swimming in the pool and leisurely soaking in the hot tub. A massive patio provides plenty of room for entertaining, catering and wine tastings, but you need a solution for the nights when football games or outdoor movies are on the agenda.

What do you do when you want an entertainment solution worthy of such a luxurious environment? Two things: think big, and call a professional audio/video integrator for advice. This Naples, Florida home owner did both, and ended up with an innovative display solution that addresses his entertainment needs in style.

Seacoast Sound relies on Digital Projection
Outdoor cinemas and viewing environments have three critical concerns that need to be addressed to deliver a satisfying experience: find a way to control or compensate for ambient light, protect the display from environmental and weather liabilities and select a location that will provide clear sight lines for the audience. Seacoast Sound, a precision integrator with offices in both South Florida and New England, was selected by the Naples home owner to create a custom viewing environment that alleviates these concerns.

Seacoast Sound relies on Digital Projection
Upon hearing the client's request for a large-screen viewing solution, the Seacoast team initially considered a recessing flat panel solution, but that idea proved impractical for numerous reasons. Fortunately, a Seacoast team member recognized that the pergola running along the large pool deck had five equal open spaces, framed by columns on each side.

After taking measurements and speaking with their Stewart Filmscreen representative, Seacoast suggested an 80" piece of weather-resistant Stewart Starglas rigid screen material, illuminated by a powerful HIGHlite 1080p 660 3-chip DLP projector. To ensure the projector is both protected from the elements and able to expel its heat properly, a custom 8' x 8' enclosure was installed off the back of the central open bay. The enclosure supports the piece of Starglas, the 8,000 lumen HIGHlite projector and a mirror used to increase the throw distance from projector to screen. Timer-controlled exhaust fans within the enclosure ensure the projector stays properly cooled.

Six team members and a crane were needed to install the custom enclosure, but the projector installation was a breeze once the screen was in place. "It only took us five minutes to get the image aligned," commented Gene Howarth, owner of Seacoast Sound. Howarth continued, "The projector was amazing. Ready to go, right out of the box, with almost no adjustments needed." As further testament to Howarth's appreciation of the projector line, an in-house home theater with a 100" dropdown screen is illuminated by another Digital Projection International projector, this time a single-chip DLP M-Vision 400.

Tech Tip:
Fighting the Flat Panel Trend in Home Entertainment Venues

Strategies for Identifying Qualified Projection Prospects -- CLICK HERE to read the entire Tech Tip.

Over the past few years, flat panels have become increasingly big in screen size, while at the same time decreasing in price. Without a doubt, flat panels are creeping into smaller-screen projection applications and taking market share. This has not impacted DP up to this point - given the high light output and stellar performance of DP's projection solutions, even our lowest cost projectors are typically employed as solutions for larger screens and outdoor venues.

While it is reasonable to expect the flat panel size and cost trends will continue, we can take comfort in knowing that there are practical limits to how big flat panels can get and how low the price can become. Nonetheless, given the current threat to smaller screen projection applications, we thought it would be helpful to provide some brief suggestions to help our customers identify prospects with display applications where technical demands assure projection will remain king.

Larger Screens Over 90" Diagonal:
Certainly bigger panels are available, but the costs are still fairly high. In addition, larger panels are extremely heavy, and moving them into existing facilities and mounting them in those facilities is often not possible due to facility design. The majority of DP's projection solutions are 5000 lumens or much higher. Given the lumen power we offer in our product line, nearly all of the applications where DP projectors are employed are for screens that are much larger than 90" diagonal. Strategy: Customers with very small imaging requirements are not your target. Seek customers with larger or more impactful screen requirements and you will identify solid DP prospects. Key markets include home theaters, outdoor entertainment, corporate venues, and anyone with a venue of a scale that exceeds what a flat panel can reasonably achieve.
