Meridian Audio MF10
Meridian Audio Limited has unveiled their latest high-definition video projector, the MF10.
Building on the success of the award-winning MF1, the new MF10 uses the
latest-generation D-ILA light-engine technology, in a maximum-performance
three-chip 1080p array. Based upon an all-new, 0.7-inch DILA device, the
MF10’s refined new optical package delivers an important reduction in stray
light, producing industry-best black levels (in excess of 30,000:1 native
contrast ratio) without the use of a servo iris. This means powerfully
stunning blacks and superbly dynamic visual “pop,” with no sacrifice in
light output—or of the MF10’s remarkable shadow detail. The result: rich,
film-like textures and depth, and an entirely involving, cinematic visual
Another key to the MF10’s video excellence is its exceptionally
accurate, 16-element, all-glass lens. This ensures sharp, fully focused
imaging across the entire screen, edge to edge and top to bottom. Its 2x
zoom delivers a large, bright image even in smaller environments with
curtailed throw-distance dimensions, delivering image size from 60 to 200
inches. Like Meridian’s MF1 projector, the MF10 will feature the optional
2.35:1 (Cinemascop®) conversion kit from lab-quality optics maker Schneider.
While video performance is indisputably the MF10’s key feature, Meridian has
also engineered numerous intelligent design touches. An extremely low-noise
cooling system maintains quiet installations, with both intake and exhaust
located on the front panel, making location close to the rear wall
practicable, for tidy layout and maximal throw-distance. Lens-shifts of 80
percent horizontal and 34 percent vertical further enhance design and
installation adaptability, while the MF10’s side-access lamp compartment
makes renewal simple even for ceiling-mounted installations.
The MF10 incorporates powerful DSP for high-performance video processing,
including deinterlacing and image scaling, making it a virtually
“plug-and-play” solution for high-end, full-HD image reproduction. For
installations requiring a range of fully state-of-the-technology abilities,
the MF10’s “pixel-for-pixel” unprocessed mode is tailor made to work in
tandem with Meridian’s newest digital video processor, the DVP2351.
Meridian is offering the MF10 Digital Projector for $14,995; DVP2351 processor: $3,995.
