The Digital Arts Sharing Program (DASP) aims to address the detrimental lack of functioning and affordable projectors in the city of Calgary. Through a successful funding application to the Calgary Foundation and the Government of Alberta’s CIP Program, Ghost River Theatre is proud to be embarking on a game-changing new initiative to provide the arts community of Calgary with an important tool for innovative and inventive theatre-making. This program, managed fully by GRT, will offer accessible rental rates, provide training, and address the gap in access to projection technology that is currently available.
In larger terms, it will allow artists to continue to utilize this form of artistic expression to enrich their practices and expose Calgary audiences to an important creative tool for aesthetic storytelling.
Our goal to provide artists with high quality, cutting edge projection technology at a fraction of the cost of other rental companies. We also aim to be as transparent as possible with our rates and policies. Click here to learn more. If these rates pose a financial challenge to your project, please contact us.

Well suited for most projection environments.
Unless otherwise requested, all projectors come with this lens.
This is a short throw lens, best suited for situations where the distance between projector and screen is limited.
*Note there is only one of these lenses available. Please request well in advance to ensure availability.
Each projector kit comes with a HDMI to SDI adapter and 100 foot coaxial cable. This adapter allows you to send a video signal over long distances using very affordable coaxial cable (RG-59) with a BNC connection. Because the projector has an SDI input, the conversion is only necessary once.
Note, in order to use this method of connection, you need an HDMI signal out of your playback device. Don't worry if you don't have one though, there are options. See F.A.Q. for more details.
The included mount kit allows the projector to be hung from a grid. The extender rod adds 16.45" - 24.33" to the drop distance. This mount does not come attached to the projector but is very easy to install. See our Learn section for more information.

It costs us time and resources to process requests and cancellations. Cancellations may also prevent us from renting to other people. For these reasons we have to charge a cancellation fee.
There are four projectors available.
'Busy' means that one of them has been booked. If there are two 'busy' dates on the calendar, then two projectors are already booked, but two are still available.The only time there are no projectors available is when there are four 'busy' items on a given calendar day.
