Esgro recommended and installed the ProScene EH7700 and W501, and Optoma W316 in 2014 and 2015.
Esgro advised the venue to install Optoma projectors because of their previous experience working with Optoma. Also, Optoma’s large range of projectors meant they could easily select models to meet their requirements. As visitors could stand close to the projection screens, it was important that the projectors were a high resolution.
The EH7700 projector was chosen for the Coach House - the largest room at the venue, due to its outstanding brightness (7,500 lumens) and clear imagery created through the WUXGA resolution. The projector chassis needed to be white to blend in with the venue’s contemporary interior.
Optoma’s ProScene W501 projector was selected for the meeting room on the upper floor of the former hayloft. The seventeenth-century building had recently been restyled to provide a multi-functional space with a comfortable seating area, contemporary furniture and accessories. This meant the projector needed to blend in and also produce a high quality image for meetings and other events.
Peter-Paul Swijnenburg, Director at Buitenplaats van Amerongen said: "A completely new space has been created which is light and intimate and at the same time warm. The space is now multifunctional, allowing us take bookings for meetings and dinners and also offer a cabaret or theater with good sight lines.”
The Optoma W316 was installed in the Carriage House building, built around 1900 to house the collection of coaches. It needed to be installed high up so reliability and minimising maintenance were key considerations.
