Chris Maggiore added the laser projection television and a special 150-inch screen in time for the Super Bowl.
JACKSON TWP. There are more than 50 televisions at Jerzee’s Grille and Mbar in Belden Village, and the newest features laser technology.
Chris Maggiore, owner of the three Jerzee’s locations — others are in Canton off Fulton Road at Interstate 77 and in Green on state Route 619 — added the laser projection television and a special 150-inch screen in time for Selection Saturday and the Super Bowl. The laser projects to an ambient light rejection screen, which blocks other light and allows for a sharper picture.
Maggiore worked with Jeff Lewis, of Audio Corner in Jackson Township, to obtain the new piece of equipment. It uses a sealed laser guaranteed to operate for 20,000 hours. He believes the projector can run from 30,000 hours or more. Using a laser means no bulbs or filters that need to be replaced routinely, Lewis said.
“The brightness is amazing,” Maggiore said of the new projector, adding that it is similar to the high-end televisions in Jerzee’s.
