The optical engine and light sources are sealed, eliminating the need for periodic cleaning. The hermetically sealed DLP DMD has a typical lifetime of more than 100,000 hours. The first service interval is due at 50,000 hours.
Built to be shaken and stirred, to withstand many times the force of gravity. Mounted to motion platforms in any orientation. ‘Lens Lock’ technology allows the lens to be locked to the projector body. Lock the lens adjustment rings and lock the Lens body to 3rd party supports for extreme rigidity. 3G motion compatible.
The P2 uses Patent Pending illumination technology.
The P2 is designed to be continuously run 24/7 in demanding conditions and is warranted for five years.
The P2 uses High Resolution single chip DLP technology.
The P2 is available in both WQXGA (2560 x 1600) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution. The imaging device has a 16:10 Aspect Ratio.
Because Solid-State illumination sources produce richer more saturated color the perception of brightness to the human eye is even greater than it’s physically measured brightness. It’s know as the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect. When the colors are more saturated, our eyes interpret it as the color’s luminance and chroma. This makes our eyes see the colors as brighter than they are physically measured.

High Dynamic Range
brightness 0.6kl to 5 kl.
- Dimming technology provides deep black levels whilst ensuring that image highlights are maintained.
Many factors are taken into consideration when designing Norxe projectors, not least the inclusion of IR to support Night Vision Goggle training scenarios. The default IR wavelength is 740 nm, other options are available upon request. 740 nm is the default wavelength because it provides good ANSI Contrast, reduces visible versus IR lens focus variation and removes the need for specialist IR optimised lens options.

- Small form factor and lightweight. Dimensions (L x W x H) are 500 x 505 x 241 mm, weight is 22.5 kg excl. lens.
- Central lens position and limitless orientation options make the process of designing a system with the P2 much easier.
- Multiple fixing points (4 x M10 + 4 x M6) on the underside of the projector ensure installation versatility, these are especially useful when performing system upgrades.
- Accessory interface points (2 x M4 per corner) are available on each corner of the P2 chassis.
The P2 supports 2 ms, 4 ms, 6 ms & 8 ms smear suppression + 8 ms Dark Frame Insertion.

Additional Information: –
Lens options are future proofed. Each has been designed to resolve 5.4 micron pixel pitch resolution to ensure compatibility with the next generation 4K DLP Chip.
Lens options comprise all glass, aspherical, no doublet optical elements & include ‘lens lock’ technology. The ‘lens lock’ feature allows the end user to physically lock the lens to the projector body, lock the lens adjustment rings into position and lock the lens body to 3rd party supporting clamps for additional rigidity in extreme circumstances.
Scheimpflug adjustment is a standard feature.
Norxe Lens Shift
norxe states that when the centre line of the lens is aligned with the centre line of the screen Lens Shift is centred (i.e. on axis). This is because the centre line is half way up or down / left or right. Lens Shift is therefore 50%.
The illustrations below show how norxe defines vertical Lens Shift (the same methodology applies to horizontal Lens Shift): –
50% shift equals on axis (i.e. no shift) –
100% Lens Shift equals half of image height / width –
Calculating norxe Lens Shift
The formula for calculating norxe Lens Shift is as follows: –
Vertical Lens Shift:
Vertical Lens Shift = Screen Height x ((Vertical Lens Shift in percent – 50) ÷ 100).
How much is the image shifted vertically when the screen height = 1.2 M and the lens has a vertical Lens Shift value of 68%?
1.2 x ((68 – 50) ÷ 100) = 0.216 M
0.216 M (216 mm).
This means that the centre of the image has shifted vertically by 0.216 M (216 mm). Assuming the projector is perpendicular to the screen it logically follows that the vertical image extremities have shifted by the same amount.
Horizontal Lens Shift:
Horizontal Lens Shift = Screen Width x ((Horizontal Lens Shift in percent – 50) ÷ 100).
How much is the image shifted horizontally when the screen width = 1.92 M and the lens has a horizontal Lens Shift value of 57.5%?
1.92 x ((57.5 – 50) ÷ 100) = 0.144 M
0.144 M (144 mm). This means that the centre of the image has shifted horizontally by 0.144 M (144 mm). Assuming the projector is perpendicular to the screen it logically follows that the horizontal image extremities have shifted by the same amount.
If Lens Shift values are less than 100% it is possible to calculate how much of the image is above / below, left or right of the lens centre line.
How much of the image is above the lens centre line when the screen height = 1.2 M and the lens has a vertical Lens Shift value of 68%?
1.2 x 68% = 0.816 M
0.816 M (816 mm).
Assuming the projector is perpendicular to the screen 0.816 M of the image is above the lens centre line whilst 0.384 (1.2 – 0.816 = 0.384) is below. The same methodology applies to horizontal calculations.
If Lens Shift values are more than 100% (typically only applicable to vertical Lens Shift) it is possible to calculate the distance between the lens centre line & the top / bottom of the image as illustrated below: –
The distance between the lens centre line & the bottom / top of image can be calculated as follows: –
What is the distance between the lens centre line and the bottom of the image when the screen height = 1.2 M and the lens has a vertical Lens Shift value of 120.5%.
1.2 x ((120.5 – 50) ÷ 100) = 0.846
Screen Height ÷ 2 = 0.60 M
Lens centre to bottom of screen = 0.846 – 0.60 = 0.246 M
0.246 M (246.0 mm).
