ViewSonic Corp. expanded its projection offerings with its new VP3D1 3D HD Video Box. Previewed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, ViewSonic's new 3D HD video converter box gives users a cost-effective entertainment solution for viewing their favorite 3D Blu-ray, PlayStation3 3D games, 3D TV broadcasts, and other 1080p 3D content on their current projector.
Whether the content is a 3D HD movie or a game, the 1080p video signal is automatically converted so users can enjoy full HD content on any 3D-ready DLP projector with an HDMI connection. The VP3D1's dual HDMI 1.4a inputs and 1.3 output connection ensure connectivity with today's latest 3D media players, according to the company.
"The possibilities and breadth of home entertainment are expanding rapidly," said Roger Chien, projector product manager for ViewSonic, in a statement. "Our VP3D1 3D HD Video Box converts the video signal effortlessly for an out-of-the-box entertainment experience using customers' current projectors."
Compatible ViewSonic projector models include the Pro8450w, Pro8500, PJD6251, and PJD6531w. However, the VP3D1 supports any 3D-ready DLP projector with an HDMI connection. It is now available for an estimated street price of $299.
