We're overwhelmed with pride that our colleague Jan Daem has been unanimously elected as chairman of the board of the Laser Illuminated Projector Association (LIPA).
As chairman, Jan will face one more challenge – to complete LIPA’s US regulatory strategy, bringing the US FDA/CDRH into alignment with the new IEC regulations he helped to develop. With this, LIPA’s primary regulatory mission will be complete. After that, LIPA will shift emphasis to its other missions: to accelerate the global adoption of laser-illuminated projectors in both cinema and non-cinema applications and to provide guidance and best practices to its members and users of laser-illuminated projectors around the world.
LIPA was founded in May, 2011 to speed the adoption of laser illuminated projectors into theaters, and other public spaces worldwide by providing the information needed to enact regulatory change and educate stakeholders. LIPs are enabling movie theater and conference room audiences to enjoy higher quality and dramatically brighter images, especially in 3D, while lowering operating costs and reducing power consumption.
