CAT MBX Projector Line Aiken SC

The projector that CAT had on display in their booth -- the $280,000 Model No. 4 -- begins its life as a Barco Digital Cinema Initiative DLP projector with 2048 x 1080 resolution. From there, it's completely retooled by Display Development, who designs and builds a custom iris for each projector based on room dimensions and materials, and adds custom lenses and power supplies, as well as a hefty new exterior packed with three heavy duty fans designed to deal with the 68,000 BTU/h generated by the projector's lamp.

CAT MBX Projector Line

Provided By:

September 13, 2009 By Dennis Burger

California Audio Technology (CAT) may be best known for their ultra-custom high-end speakers, but the company is no stranger to video. In 2001 they partnered with Sam Runco to bring their first MBX projector to the market at $250,000.

At CEDIA this past week, CAT announced its latest video partnership, this time with Display Development, Inc., and unveiled a new projector line priced from $128,000 to $380,000 apiece.

I say "apiece," because as many as six CAT MBX projectors can be combined to create an ultra-bright, ridiculously high-resolution video system. 

The projector that CAT had on display in their booth -- the $280,000 Model No. 4 -- begins its life as a Barco Digital Cinema Initiative DLP projector with 2048 x 1080 resolution. From there, it's completely retooled by Display Development, who designs and builds a custom iris for each projector based on room dimensions and materials, and adds custom lenses and power supplies, as well as a hefty new exterior packed with three heavy duty fans designed to deal with the 68,000 BTU/h generated by the projector's lamp. As as a result, temperature within the case varies no more than 3 degrees at all times.

The CAT MBX projector line will be available exclusively through authorized CAT MBX dealers.
