Topic:   Mobile outdoor projector on a bicycle

Wow - thanks for the many reactions, concerns and advice:) As many other artist - the gallery/workshop is in a low budget part of the town. We would like to lighten up the day (actually night) for lesser fortunate people who spend a lot of time outdoor. So the project has a lot of social considering in it. The projecor will be transported in a solid metal, well isolated travel box while riding the bike to the positions thought of. Here the gear will be mounted. As you suggest we will use a laptop. I would also like the projector to be in the solid box but i guess it has to be put on the shelve higher up - due to people passing in front of it on street level and creating shadows (kids having fun disturbing the light). On top of the shelve i have think to put some kind of soft but still solid isolation material and on top of this a steady heavy tile for the projector to stand on. I will make a light box construction to have a roof over the projector (to avoid the unmentionable droppings from dove´s :) and i´m thinking to put a moisture sucking granulate inside the box for humidity and make sure there will be a lot of free airflow. After the showing i will let the projector cool down before the wrap and transport to another destination. I think the shelve also gives the bike a kind of humoristic ET (phone home) look which will hopefully generate a lot of smiles in the neighborhood. It is my wish that the projector will give people a good story to go home and tell around the dinnertable or shelter - at least for one day it might change the subject of bad weather or that the busses where running late again. Thanks for the DEFINITE on LCD - i will look in that direction and unless i get different advice here in the forum - i´m pretty sure i will go for the "Sanyo PLC-XU48 Multimedia Projector" (still looking for independent rewievs). It has 3000 lumens and i´m specially attracted to it´s "Blackboard" functions for dark surfaces. Also on "iavi.com" it says: Where other projectors make you wait for a lamp cool-down period, Sanyo's new PLC-XU48 does not. When you're done, you can turn off, unplug and then run to the next meeting or classroom with one of these ready-to-go, bright projectors just as fast as you need to - there is no need to wait - all without worrying about affecting the unit's lamp life time. Thanks for help and advice on the project (i´m not a tech-guy so your advice is taken serious by me). I will be sure to post a jpeg of the bike in function... Paul

Topic:   Mobile outdoor projector on a bicycle

Hi there. A Danish artist looking for technical advice. I´m running a small non-profit art gallery and workshop in Copenhagen. I have just had funds for a mobile video projector on a bicycle (see pic). The bicycle will be geared with a dvd, speakers and a gasolin generator for the bike to be put into action anywhere - projecting onto walls, buildings concrete tiles any outdoor surface as part in street art actions. I call it Graffiti light. I have been recommended the Sanyo PLC-XU48 as it supposedly works well on dark surfaces. I cant find any rewievs on this item. And in many places is it no longer for sale. Is this a bad sign. Are LCD projectors okay? Does anyone have other recommendations. (I am aware to take extreme care of transportation while projector is warm - humidity etc) Any suggestions or experience. I am able to spend up to 2500 dollars. Thanks before hand - i asked many questions just getting an answer or two to one of them will help a lot. Paul

Topic:   Any oppinions on Sanyo and Sanyo PLC-XU48 ?

Hi! Has anyone had any experience with Sanyo portables? I need to place a versatile projector in a night cafe environment, not really dark, mostly for videoart, 4:3 shows and 16:9 movies. Got a good offer and availability on this particular model (Sanyo PLC-XU48). The lumens seem ok though the contrast might be better. The only thing that puzzles is that it is described as ULTRAPORTABLE. Is there any catch in this? Have a NEC LT260K at home and have also played with Acer PD725 once so any comparissons and suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!
