BryteWerks Model One Debuting at DEMO Spring 2012 April 18-19

DEMO_logo_BryteWerks

Boutique consumer electronics manufacturer BryteWerks will be debuting their stunning flagship product, The Model One, at this Spring’s DEMO Conference, April 18-19 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California.

The Model One, the world’s most powerful digital projector, is poised to revolutionize projection in not only professional theaters, but in indie theaters, home theaters, houses of worship, corporate boardrooms, museums, concert stages and more.

Boasting a bevy of tightly-integrated technologies and cutting-edge innovation in an ultra-sleek package, The Model One is an audio/video powerhouse and so much more. Its 1080p+ digital projection with ultra-high brightness, 7.1 digital audio output, onboard Blu-ray, built-in PC with SSD storage and a customized version of XBMC media center software put it in a class all its own. Its rear-panel touch screen control, custom-designed superior optics and innovations like its 1:1 lens throw ratio, AIrheart™ cooling system, Mag-Snap™ I/O feet and remote control & networking capabilities via Wifi, ethernet, bluetooth & RF make it the only digital projector of its kind on the planet.

But it’s so much more than that. The Model One is a game-changer.

With its simplicity, power and extremely wide range of available applications, The Model One is the choice for professionals and consumers alike. Projectionists finally have an effortless, portable way to show motion pictures professionally. Smooth, seamless and inexpensive projection has never been easier for film festivals, independent movie theaters, multiplexes -- or the home theater enthusiast. And The Model One’s superior technology and revolutionary price point has the potential to not only supplant current consumer and professional offerings, but to help create new markets in exhibition: its incredible flexibility and portability will empower independent filmmakers to project their own films wherever they wish, becoming their own distributors. And small businesses like coffee shops, hotels, restaurants, bars or performing arts spaces can now screen motion pictures, hold video game tournaments, and project the big game like never before, enjoying new revenue streams.

Enterprise customers will find The Model One is equally suited for large scale corporate events. And thanks to its onboard PC (available in four powerful configurations), houses of worship, performing art spaces, concert stages and feature film editing bays will never be the same. Want to project lyrics for the congregation without dimming the lights in the sanctuary? How about beat-synced visuals for the band on stage? What about editing or color grading your next film on the big screen? Fancy doing some projection mapping on the side of a building? The Model One can do it all without breaking a sweat.

This is how revolutions begin.

Inspired and developed by a filmmaker, The Model One is a marvel in movie theaters and therefore a free public expedition of the projector will be held next month in Alameda, CA. Signup for the screening at DEMO Spring 2012 or joining the mailing list on the BryteWerks website. Further information will be released exclusively to those subscribed.

BryteWerks President and Co-Founder, Justin Eugene Evans, will be on hand at the DEMO conference with the BryteWerks team to introduce The Model One and provide feedback, insight, and interviews.

BryteWerks Announces Its New Line of Intelligent HD Digital Projectors



BryteWerks-Model-One-blog-image

Start-Up Releases CPU-based Connected Devices for Home and Professional Applications

Tech start-up BryteWerks LLC announces the launch of a product line poised to establish a new category of intelligent, hybrid media centers based on an advanced high-definition digital projector platform.  The BryteWerks Model One line of Intel™ Core CPU-based digital projectors merge state-of-the-industry computer, digital, and optical technologies with superior connectivity capabilities and innovative industrial design into a cost-effective and intuitive multimedia control and exhibition powerhouse. 

Designed for either consumer or professional applications, the BryteWerks Model One line delivers exhibition-quality 16:10 widescreen 1920x1200 resolution (within 5% of professional 2K cinema systems), through a LCD Native WUXGA panel.  The projectors also feature an ultra-high brightness of 6,000 - 11,000 lumens, a 1000:1 True Contrast Ratio™, and a 1:1 throw of 1 foot to 50 feet, making them the very best, all-purpose digital projectors in their class.  Internally, the BryteWerks Model One projectors feature (depending upon model configuration), a fully-integrated Intel Core i3 to i7 HTPC CPU, a full featured, slot-loaded Blu-ray player, up to 2 terabytes of internal storage, including a 500 gigabyte Solid State Drive, unequaled connectivity options, and a custom version of XBMC, an open source media organization and playback application, making the Model One a revolutionary and unsurpassed media center. 

Ease-of-operation in any application was paramount in the design criteria for the BryteWerks Model One.  Highly intuitive and non-linear system and content management (including the ability to operate numerous BryteWerks projectors and connected devices simultaneously), is controlled from the 720p 8.9-inch touch panel display on the back of the projector, a provided RF remote control, or the free XBMC remote app for Android and iOS devices, as well as existing Wifi & Bluetooth devices – from keyboards to smartphones to tablets - already on the market.

The BryteWerks Model One Projector offers the ability to build a professional cinema experience effortlessly, seamlessly and transparently in any environment or application without playback interruption.  Operational features, to name only a few, include customized media playlist creation, variable frame rate control up to 60 fps, pre-rendered transitions, and independent control of ‘connected devices’ and/or daisy-chained BryteWerks projectors (or a combination of the two).  Professional post-production applications include editing, visual effects creation and color grading.  The open-source Python-based XBMC offers infinite feature and plug-in development allowing users infinite customization options.

Connectivity via 802.11n Wifi, Bluetooth and gigabit Ethernet provides seamless two-way communication with other BryteWerks projectors, as well as a wide variety of other peripherals, including, but not limited to, gaming devices, flatscreen displays, external hard drives, computers, handheld smart devices, and digital video and signal processing and routing equipment.  The unique power and I/O interface, which also features dual USB and HDMI ports, 5.1 individual analog surround sound outputs and AC power, is a fully-upgradeable, patent-pending cable management system that conceals all cable interfaces in the projector's Mag-Snap™ feet.

The ultra-wide 102mm adjustable prime lens provides greater picture fidelity and a brighter image with less optical distortion.  The 1:1 Lens Throw Ratio eliminates the need for a lens throw calculator, thereby reducing set-up time in both an Imperial and Metric environment.  Aftermarket lenses can adjust the projector’s throw to any size screen in any size room or theater.  Optical Keystone Correction of +/- 20 degrees vertical is distortion-free with no interpolated or cropped pixels - common with digital keystone correction – and provides a more accurate picture. 

The open source, industry standard Metal Halide lamp allows the user the choice of replacement bulbs from multiple inexpensive vendors, thereby reducing long term operating costs.  Bulb replacement is fast and easy, without the need for tools, by simply releasing the Model One’s magnetically-latched lid and unscrewing the bulb from the projector’s light engine.

The Model One uses the BryteWerks proprietary AirHeart™ airflow management system consisting of multiple chambers with discreet fans and plenums that result in superior cooling at an ultra quiet operating noise level as low as 27dB (depending on configuration). 

The sleek and sophisticated black aluminum and steel enclosure, built on a robust aluminum chassis, is only 17-inches cubed, weighs only 28 pounds, and is devoid of mechanical buttons.  In addition, the forward compatibility design criteria allows for simple and inexpensive future data and power management upgrades, resulting in a long and low-cost operational lifespan.  The BryteWerks Model One product line is backed by a standard 1-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects, which can be upgraded to an unlimited 3-year warranty.

The BryteWerks Model One is a dazzling and sophisticated centerpiece for a home theater as well as a rugged, if not bulletproof, ultra-reliable tool in a performing arts center, museum, church, indie film theater, corporate boardroom, military applications or AV rental inventory.

The four BryteWerks Model One projectors range in price from $2,999.00, $3,999.00, $4,999.00 and $6,999.00, and are available factory-direct through http://www.brytewerks.com, which launches on February 13, 2012.
