Rochester, NY - July 8, 2014 - Navitar, a global leader in optical technology, announced today the addition of the HMR113 wide angle 1X relay projection lens to their established line of 180°/160°/100° HemiStar® fisheye lenses. The 11.27mm focal length fisheye lens was designed for high power 1.38” DLP 4K 3-Chip projectors such as the Christie D4K3560 and Barco Galaxy 4K-32.
The HMR113 projects 170.6° X 84.4° for a very wide horizontal image making it ideal for use in amusement rides, immersive applications, or giant screen installations. The lens also includes a masking slot properly positioned for applications that require blending (mask not included).
The HMR113 lens performs very well for its 4K design applications. Engineering was very pleased with the results from prototyping. During the testing and building stages we are able to make adjustments to optimize the performance of each constructed lens, ensuring the build quality our customers expect,” comments Matt DeRosa, Mechanical Engineer at Navitar.
