We have 3 digital projector options. From the projection booth we have our Panasonic PT-DZ21KU HD DLP projector, primarily used for our simulcasts of The Met: Live in HD and NT Live in HD. From the balcony rail we have a Panasonic PT-DW10000U HD DLP, this is ideal for projections used during more traditional stage performances. Both the PT-DZ21KU and the PT-DW100000U are permanently installed in their locations. We also have a Panasonic PT-EX600U that is mounted upstage to be used primarily for rear projection. This projector can be relocated throughout the theater. 5.1 Digital sound can be Toslink,coaxial digital, or stereo left and right through our Dolby CP-750 electronic cinema interface.
The screen size is 34’4″ X 15’8″ with integral manual adjustable masking hard flats. We have an OPPO-105 BDP Blu-ray player that will play both blu-ray and DVD discs. We have a digital switcher to integrate multiple HDMI, DVI, VGA, BNC, S-Video, component and composite inputs.
