Tempest has launched its modular G4 range projector enclosures aimed at providing a high quality, holistic enclosure range and are designed to protect projectors in all environments, from harsh outdoor weather to quiet, indoor spaces.

According to a Tempest press release, the latest models have been upgraded across the range and feature variable speed AC fan control, USB diagnostics and firmware update capabilities and optional RS485 and Ethernet connectivity, web-based remote monitoring will be available soon.

“The G4 range highlights why we lead the way in projector enclosure technology,” says Tim Burnham, president of Tempest, in the press release. “Through seven years of development, we have constructed thousands of enclosures which have been employed in all climates across the globe, and we’ve learned a huge amount in the process.”

“G4 enclosures are the product of that learning experience – a reliable modular solution, developed to replace all our existing enclosure types and deal with every customer application. Whatever the requirement – portrait or landscape, outdoor or indoor, rental or fixed, freezing or hot temperatures, standard or custom enclosure sizes – Tempest has your needs covered with G4 enclosures.”

Here’s more from the Tempest press release:

The G4 range:

  • Blizzard G4 outdoor enclosures are now fully stackable, with three sizes capable of housing projectors up to 15k lumens. Available in three sizes, Blizzard enclosures house 5-7k, 7-10k, and 10-15k lumens projectors.
  • Whispr is the ideal enclosure choice for when intrusive noise really matters. Whispr provides unparalleled noise attenuation, making it perfect for quiet indoor environments, such as educational spaces. Whispr is also available in 5-7k, 7-10k and 10-15k sizes.
  • Tacit builds on Whispr, for projectors from 20k-45k lumens, with the same unrivalled noise attenuation as Whispr. Tacit models are projector-specific, and feature front or rear projector slide access for easy installation and maintenance.
  • Typhoon G4 is the premium rental and staging projector enclosure for outdoor events, tours and shows. Typhoon models cover most popular rental projectors, including Christie M-Series, Roadster and Boxer, Barco HDX and HDF, and Panasonic PT-D21K. The stackable Typhoon boasts many rigging options for installation flexibility, as well as optional thermal insulation for additional protection in extreme outdoor environments.
  • Cyclone G4 outdoor enclosures are also projector-specific, with models available for all business and cinema projectors up to 45K. The hugely popular model now offers salt fog filtering as standard, with additional optional features including Ethernet connectivity and remote monitoring service.

The new G4 range will be unveiled at InfoComm and visitors are invited to the Tempest booth (N555) to check out the new look and the benefits it will bring to Tempest users.
