  • Epson EB-PU1008WNL 8500lm WUXGA Large Venue 3LCD Laser Projector with ELPLU03S Short Throw Lens

Funtopia, a leading indoor adventure play centre, is renowned for offering thrilling experiences that engage and delight children of all ages. Located in Carrum Downs, Funtopia provides an array of interactive attractions that foster physical activity, creativity, and fun.

Project Overview

Funtopia Carrum Downs envisioned taking their interactive ball game system, “MultiBall,” to the next level. This innovative gaming solution offers exciting gameplay that requires accurate projection and vibrant visuals. To achieve this, Funtopia sought to upgrade their existing Panasonic PT-EZ590 projector to a solution that could provide higher brightness, durability, and reliability.

The Challenge

The existing Panasonic projector, with its 5,400 ANSI Lumens brightness and limited lamp life, fell short of meeting Funtopia’s dynamic requirements. Frequent lamp changes not only disrupted the gaming experience but also posed maintenance challenges. Funtopia needed a solution that could deliver exceptional performance, consistent brightness, and extended usage hours without compromising on quality.

The Solution

Funtopia turned to Vision One Technologies for a comprehensive projector upgrade. After considering both the throw distance and total image size requirements, recommended the Epson EB-PU1008WNL 8500lm WUXGA Large Venue 3LCD Laser Projector with ELPU03S Short Throw Lens. This highly versatile 8,500 lumens installation projector pairs seamlessly with Epson’s existing lens family to deliver bright, true-to-life images in a wide variety of environments: from visitor attractions to lecture theatres, museums to meeting rooms. The high lumens EB-PU1008W offers WUXGA resolution with 4K enhancement, HDR and advanced installation features.

This choice not only addressed the brightness gap but also introduced the advantages of laser technology.

Benefits for Funtopia
  1. Unrivaled Brightness: The Epson projector’s 8500 lumens ensured vibrant and captivating visuals, enhancing the MultiBall gameplay experience and immersing players in a world of excitement.
  2. Longevity: The laser projection technology eliminated the need for frequent lamp replacements. With a remarkable 20,000 hours of total use, Funtopia could continue entertaining visitors without interruption.
  3. Durability: The robust build of the Epson projector made it well-suited for the playful environment of Funtopia. It could withstand the rigors of continuous operation and the occasional impact from stray, softened balls.
  4. Seamless Integration: The projector’s short throw lens perfectly complemented the MultiBall configuration and environmental limitations, ensuring precise projection even in tight spaces.

The upgrade not only met Funtopia’s technical requirements but also elevated the MultiBall gaming experience.

The captivating projection quality adds a new layer of excitement to the game, making each moment truly unforgettable.
