Aspect ratio

A current and profitable business opportunity to offer your clients cost-effective system upgrades.

We have many hundred installed rear projection mirror systems, many of which are still in use after many years.  These older systems can be refurbished. But more significantly they are mostly in 4:3 screen aspect ratio and there are many systems out there that need upgrading to 16:9 or 16:10.

We are currently at work upgrading systems for our partners and see them successfully using this as a springboard to winning larger AV system upgrades and add-on sales opportunities.

Use two of VDL’s secret weapons – free site surveys and PISCR image quality/contrast measurement – to help you unlock these significant opportunities.

If you have an enquiry about rear projection system upgrades, please complete the form with as much information as possible and someone will contact you within 24 hours.

Specialist consultancy on projected images, screens, displays, image size and how to use existing displays

Greg Jeffreys was a lead writer on the ANSI/InfoComm PISCR (Projected Image System Contrast Ratio) Standard and the task group leader for the new ANSI/InfoComm DISCAS (which is easier than saying 'Display Image Size for 2D Content in Audiovisual Systems’!) Standard. He offers specialist consultancy, advice, design and training on these specialist subjects.

Greg continues to support the AV consultant and specifier community with friendly and practical advice. He and the team support AV consultants with the specific materials needed to produce these parts of tender documents.

Consultancy is offered in various ways, from troubleshooting existing system to designing and planning new systems.

Currently we are working on a number of large screen, multi-projector systems with soft-edge blending. When done well these systems provide a magnificent result at a fraction of the cost of an LED wall. We are working on new systems and also troubleshooting existing systems.

If you have a project you would like to discuss with us, please complete the form, giving as much information as possible and we will contact you within 24 hours.

Site surveys provide a unique opportunity to maintain and develop client relationships and to create business based on a consultative and value-based sales process.

As partners to the UK AV reseller channel we have unique skills, experience, meters and tools to enhance your professional reputation and win you new business.

Typically we will make a detailed site survey using tools appropriately, including laser measurement, illuminance (ambient light) meters, luminance (image ‘brightness’) meters, PISCR measurement of existing systems. We then write a report and recommendation based on Standards, Best Practice and many years of hard-won experience.

Site surveys are often partnered with demonstrations and evaluations. Users are cynical about Photoshopped brochures of unfeasibly perfect brochure images. This is the perfect time to actually show users what their images will look like – under realistic working conditions.

As acknowledged experts in our field, you can benefit from our partnership and support in this most practical of ways.

To request a free site survey, please complete the form with as much information as possible and we will contact you within 24 hours.

Seeing is believing. Users are cynical about Photoshopped brochures of unfeasibly perfect brochure images.

We have a range of world-leading screen technologies to provide optimal image quality under the harshest of lighting conditions.

By showing clients what their image will look like under realistic conditions they can buy into the product selection, confident that they have realistic expectations of what the installed system will look like.

Let us put our demonstration products, material and facilities at your service and help you win new orders.
