The CF3DAT full HD 3D LCoS projector from LG features 1920x1080 native screen resolution and 2,500 ANSI lumens in 2D (1250 ANSI lumens in 3D) along with LG’s 2D to 3D conversion. The LED lamp can last up to 3,500 hours and the manual 1.3X zoom can fill up a 100in. to 300in. diagonal screen. Input connections include RGB, composite, component, HDMI, RF, and USB with control by infrared remote, RS-232, and Ethernet. The unit also provides a sleep control, picture still, auto source detection, digital keystone correction, and image flip.
Dual-lamp operation and an automated, reusable air filter are two key features from Mitsubishi on the new XD8600U DLP projector. It also incorporates heat-pipe cooling for energy efficiency and quiet running. Delivering 8,500 lumens in dual-lamp mode, the unit includes built-in edge blending for multiple side-by-side as well as stacked projection. Corrective distortion allows for projection to curved surfaces and full 360-degree projection along its vertical axis enables it to show images from floor to ceiling. An optional three-segment color wheel is available to emphasize depth of color. Native resolution is 1024x768 and it can accommodate several optional lenses.
The ultra-short-throw TW695UTi-3D projector from Optoma is made to deliver a very bright picture at 3,500 lumens with WXGA resolution from around 2ft. or less from the projection surface. It comes with the PointBlank interactive pen that turns any standard whiteboard into an interactive whiteboard. The unit is equipped for 3D display, over-the-network presentations, and it can show projects direct from a USB flash drive. For the academic environment, the projector can be monitored and controlled via Ethernet and RS-232 with many third-party AV networking systems from Crestron, Extron, AMX, and others.
Designed by Panasonic with the capability of displaying an 80in. picture from about 1ft. away, the ultra-short-throw and 3D-ready PT-CW230 can be mounted horizontally or vertically on or under tables, on floors, or ceilings to suit a variety of installation designs. The projector synchronizes with 3D glasses using the frame-sequential method to produce realistic immersive images useful in academic and museum settings. The unit can be immediately turned off by cutting the AC power, and it features a presentation timer, freeze function, digital zoom, and built-in closed caption decoder.
The F85 series 3-chip DLP projector from projectiondesign can display sequential 3D at up to 120Hz, as well as frame rate convert any input signal to 120Hz with the X-PORT DCC120, and combine two input streams to a single sequential display. The F85 series can show video at up to 11,000 lumens with WUXGA or 1080p resolution using dual 400W UHP lamps. There is a powered lens-shift system with user-adjustable optical color processing filters along with motorized zoom, focus, iris, and mechanical shutter. Inputs include two DVI-D, two HDMI, two VGA and 1x5 BNC, S-Video, component, and composite analog.
Sharp has configured the XG-SV200W sealed DLP, 3D-ready projector to use an optional motorized swivel mount (AN-SV100T) that can swing the unit horizontally by 360 degrees for up to eight preset positions to suit multiple screen venues or environments with movable dividers. The 5,000-lumen projector features motorized 2.0X optical zoom, focus, and horizontal/vertical lens shift along with a 10W audio system. It has direct power-off, auto restart, and a built-in closed caption decoder. It accepts HDMI, RGB/component, S-Video, composite, and stereo sound sources. Control can be connected on RS-232, Ethernet, and USB.
The Sony VPLGT100 can use two DisplayPort inputs and 0.74in. 4K SXRD panels to show content at up to 4K/60P with 2,000-lumen color light output for use in virtual training, industrial design, and simulation. Featured are powered 2.1X zoom, focus, and lens shift (80 percent vertical, 31 percent horizontal), and along with the DisplayPort inputs, the projector also has HDMI and USB connections. It can be controlled by IR, RS-232, or Ethernet, and it includes two mini-jack trigger terminals. It can also display full HD 3D and 4K upscaling of 3D movies.
Equipped by ViewSonic with DICOM SIM mode and 3D Blu-ray compatibility, the PJD7333 SGA DLP projector also features wired and wireless LAN image display. The LAN display offers a quad split screen for simultaneously projecting content from up to four PCs, with the ability to broadcast from up to eight projectors. The projector can show content directly from a USB flash drive and with the optional WPD-100 wireless USB adapter, ViewSonic’s app on an Android, or iOS device can be used as a remote control. The unit is also controllable via RS-232 and Ethernet using Crestron’s Roomview and other third-party AV network applications.
The 538W-3D from Vivitek delivers native WXGA (720p) resolution at 3,200 lumens and it can go up to UXGA with connectivity options including HDMI v1.3, VGA, composite, and S-video. It can be controlled through infrared or RS-232, and audio can be input on RCA and mini-jack. The D538W-3D can convert 2D to 3D via HDMI and connect to any standard or 3D Blu-Ray player for 3D viewing. Other features include closed captioning, keypad lock, and rapid on/off. The focus and 1.16:1 zoom are manual and there is an internal 2W speaker. The lamp is rated up to 4,000 hours in economy mode.
The flagship home-theater projector from Wolf Cinema, the REF-1000, can fill screens up to 18ft. wide using four high-contrast VariScope lens options to show 3D content from Blu-ray players, TV shows, and 3D video-gaming consoles. Using a 1kW xenon arc lamp and dust-sealed, three-chip Texas Instruments DLP engine, the unit delivers 1920x1080 resolution at 6,500 lumens. Control options include infrared, RS-232/422, Ethernet, GPIO, and the built-in keypad and LCD display. Installation can be customized using motorized horizontal and vertical lens offsets while DVI and HDMI inputs support mandatory HDMI 1.4a 3D modes of operation plus 24Hz-144Hz triple flash 3D modes.
