FLARE100 ART PROJECTOR BY ARTOGRAPH
CREATIVE TOOL OF THE YEAR
Artograph is pleased to announce the new Flare100 Art Projector won first place in the Creative Impulse 2016 awards for Creative Tool of the Year.
In the award ceremony January 31, 2016 at CreativeWorld in Frankfurt, Germany, Artograph CEO Don Dow accepted the award for the innovative projector designed for the needs of artists and crafters.
A 100 lumen battery-operated art projector, the FLARE100 ART PROJECTOR is part of the successful LED digital art projector line pioneered by Artograph. Also in this projector line are the INSPIRE800 ART PROJECTOR, and the IMPRESSION1400 ART PROJECTOR. With three sizes, Artograph offers a digital art projector for every type of art and artist.
FLARE100™ Art Projector sets the artist free with a portable battery operated projector. The Flare100 projects a sharp image from four inches all the way to mural size.
INSPIRE800™ Art Projector brings enhanced brightness in a convenient size.
IMPRESSION1400™ Art Projector has full HD and 1400 lumens of brilliance, adding a new dimension of skew control.
Each projector includes 22 custom built-in grids, plus bonus geometric and border patterns, image control, and wireless connection from Windows and Android devices.
Artograph was founded in Minneapolis in 1947 by three entrepreneurs, Ed Hirschoff, John Engel, and Les Kouba, who wanted to start a company that produced time-saving devices. Les Kouba, a wildlife artist, suggested developing a projector to help him enlarge his wildlife photos onto a canvas. Thus, the first Artograph projector was born.
Many variations were created from that first projector, but it was in 1977 when a totally new design in projectors was created that hit the commercial and graphic artist markets like a bolt of lightning. The DB300 table-top projector was an instant success and became a key tool for artists and designers for over 20 years.
As technology and the age of the computer flourished, Artograph’s focus expanded from the commercial artist and designer to include the distinctive needs of the fine artist and the crafter. A number of new projectors were introduced and the term “Artograph it!” soon became synonymous with using an art projector to save time and increase productivity.
With the development of LED technology, Artograph’s commitment to ever-greener and more energy efficient products shines in product lines designed with the artist in mind.
