Choose your brightness with HDQ Flex

Light-on-demandThe HDQ-2K40 projector is also available with a light-on-demand option. Thanks to this technology, you can fully tune the light output of the projector to your event: it can be programmed to a light output of 26,000 lumens up to 40,000 lumens in 2,000 incremental steps. In this way, rental companies have more flexibility to offer their customers the light output they want.
