Last weekend we visited IBC2012 Amsterdam: the biggest audiovisual exhibition in Europe. It takes place in the huge facilities of Amsterdam RAI. This exhibition is a meeting place for companies working in the field of TV, broadcasting and cinema. We found an interest in specific fields, such as video projectors, compact cameras for cinema production, so as devices for 3D images.
We stopped by some stands, among them Christie. They very kindly showed us their series of projectors featuring 5000 ANSI lumens and onwards, and satisfied our curiosity about liquid refrigeration -similar to the gel used in some desktop computers-. Aparently, liquid refrigeration is specially useful in high power projectors – featuring more than 20.000 ANSI lumens, due to obvious reasons: these devices generate an enormous amount of heat.
