Hoylu Connected Workspaces™ is designed on a wide variety of devices including large scale projection systems (up to 40 feet), large interactive screens, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. Hoylu Connected Workspaces™ is available to work where ever you are!
Which Projectors are Recommended?
For the HoyluWall system we provide compact laser phosphorous ultra short throw projectors running at HD (1920×1080) resolution. It is highly recommended that if you are going to use your own projectors for the HoyluWall solution; that you use projectors that are as similar as possible.
Can I Also Use LCD-Screens Instead of Projectors?
As a simple answer, no. The Projectors provide several options that an LCD screen can not at the moment. First the projected image is able to be overlapped and thus blended together to form a single massive screen for you to use. You could get a large super wide panel screen but the cost would be prohibitive. The next issue that you have to understand is that an LCD screen does not have the high accuracy dot pattern. This means that you will lose the 680 dots per inch (DPI) resolution and need to replace it with a less accurate and, in the case of a large LCD screen, much more expensive solution.
Hoylu Connected Workspaces™ is available on touch interactive windows based panels.
