André Mangold, long-term user of UltraMixer presented to us on this subject today its latest technology and hardware setting.
“My current DJ set consists of the MIDI controller” Denon MC 3000, “UltraMixer 5 Pro Entertain Windows, and a video-hardware installation. My projector of choice is the 2014 Optoma HD131Xe. The DLP projector offers 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD resolution in 16:9 format. Its light output is 2500 lumens, which is entirely adequate. With its 26 db loudness it is of no problem during the sound operation. Connections = 2x HDMI 1x VGA 1x USB Type B 1x video. For mobile use, I recommend a tripod screen of 2.00 mx 2.00 m, but everyone has to decide it for theirselves, depending on the room and the distance from the projector you need a different screen size. I recommend everyone a projection calculation, because that plays a big role in the use of projectors and screens. At the event, i pay attention on the following points
- stable placement of projector and screen
- lighting in the room
- possibility to darken the room
- wiring of the projector (length of HDMI or VGA cable for HDMI signals there are already wireless solutions)
