    What software do you have?

    If you have Beyond you could try Emulaser with a projector instead of laser. You'll have no safety or regulation issues so far as I'm aware doing it that way.

    Did they make a 3DLP projector? That would be awesome.

    I just replaced the bulb and answered many of my previous questions. It's not a whole lot bright, this may be because it's old, and the contrast ratio is low like 400:1. Would the difference between 2700 lumen and 3000 be a very noticeable difference?

    I think it will be sufficient to mess around with in the meantime. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good upgrade? I went to best buy, office max, and a few other places and they all seem to carry the same pjs and very few to choose from. I also can't try them before buying because they're all empty display shells. I'm guessing I can buy a better pj online anyway, but it's be nice to see the difference of new technology.

    As for a program, I downloaded about 5 that were recommended on a mapping site, some were free, some were trials. I do have beyond, but have never used emulaser.

    For Emulaser Pangolin recommend extreme contrast ratios above all else (ie brightness is less important that contrast).

    I believe their recommended projector is this - the Epson 5030UB (ultra black):

    I couldn't comment on it's suitability for projection mapping. I suspect that outdoors you'd need a serious commercial projector as suggested by James above for projection mapping.

    As for Emulaser, I've not used it. There are 1 or 2 videos on Youtube as some people on here used one at Selem. So far as I'm aware, geometric shapes ie boxes, cones, fences, sheets etc appear very close to a laser of around 1W. Beam / hot beams however, appear much dimmer not only than laser beams but the geometric shapes.

    I was messing around with the emu laser last night. My projector is deff old, and not bright at all. But I think it's cool that I don't need another fb3 to run effects to a second 'projector' with beyond. Might be cool if I point it at the floor from a shelf.

    I need a better projector, with the main intention to map and emu laser isn't necessary. So maybe contrast ratio isn't as important as brightness?
