[802SEC] LCD Projector Donations Explained.
The great IEEE 802 LCD Projector Recycling program is about to commence, and I'm happy to report that we have 5 qualified candidates listed in order of precedence for projector choice. I am listing them by the IEEE 802 support person, who submitted the request and who will handle seeing that the unit selected reaches it's final destination, the non-profit charitable organization. So the winners are:
1) David James - supporting the Quakers Youth Program of Palo Alto, CA
2) Matt Sherman - supporting the La Leche League of New Jersey
3) Carl Stevenson - supporting the Lehigh Wildcare Organization
4) John Hawkins - Boy Scouts of America - Troop 39 of the NE Georgia Council
5) Paul Nikolich - supporting "Injilicoms" of rural Kenya, Africa
In the order listed the support person will have the option to choose one of the following units available for recycle on behalf of their respective groups and as each unit is selected the next selector gets to choose from the remaining units. The units are listed in the order of Size (Power) but the first 3 have some known defects which may or may not affect their suitability for a particular purpose. Contact Buzz Rigsbee to schedule an appointment to choose a projector and get additional explanations as necessary.
a) LCD#19 - Toshiba TLP X-11U, True XGA resolution, 1200 Lumens, with hi-res document camera, and Soft-sided rolling case. Hi-power, hi-feature, hi-resolution unit, but with a lamp that nearing end of life ($400 to replace) and a visible thin black line down the left edge of the projected image. Unit is probably due for a maintenance tune-up but was purchased new in 2001 and has 3-5 more years of useful life if repaired by factory service rep.
b) LCD#1 - Toshiba TLP 511A, True XGA resolution, 550 Lumens, with lo-res document camera, and no carrying case. One of our oldest units (purchased in 1998) it has a lamp that is nearing end of life and has a small discolored spot in the visible viewing area (purple tinge). With factory service could be made fully functional for at least 2-3 years.
c) LCD#13 - Proxima SV1+, True SVGA resolution (can only display XGA max), 500 Lumens, lightweight, portable with small hand carry case, manual zoom & focus. Has extra monitor out jack beyond SV1. Has small discolored spot (yellow tinge) in upper left quadrant of viewing area. Purchased 10/2000.
