LC4500 RGB Projector


Standard working distance using the DLP4500 chipset.

The LC4500-P5 optical engine offers a 1.6:1 mid-throw ratio lens to users needing to create an image within a typical working distance from the projector.

NOTE! The standard board does not come with connectors to plug in a BeagleBone board. Please order the PEM option if needed.

It provides a full color, high resolution (912x1140) and high brightness projector (200 lumens standard with >350 lumens possible in "full-white" mode").  This projector has excellent uniformity and optional short focus capability. It is well suited for industrial applications such as structured lighting, 3D machine vision, medical and life science, mass spectrometery and display applications.

If you need full networking support using Ethernet, or want to build your own embedded application for use in production systems, just plug in a BeagleBone Black or BeagleBone Green and download our toolset. You can learn more about the optional BeagleBone processor daughtercard at

If you prefer a quicker solution,  our LC4500-PEM application provides programmable pattern sequence sets with a graphical user interface supported on Windows, OS X and Linux.  Don't hesitate to contact our engineering team with any questions about LC4500 modifications.
