Optoma's HD66 720p 3D home theatre projector

No matter how much you spend, there just doesn't seem to be any clear way to future-proof your home theatre system. You can have the biggest HD screen on the block, but suddenly, if it can't do 3D, it's all but obsolete. With the rush of 3D content that's under development in the gaming, TV and cinema worlds, 3D is set to become the new HD within the next couple of years - and with that in mind, Optoma has pulled the covers off its HD66 digital projector at CES - a US$699 home theatre projector capable of showing 720p content in 3D with a max image size around 300".  Read More

The Microvision SHOWWX laser pico projector first came to our attention in development back in 2008, with the final version making an appearance at this years CES. Around the size of a smartphone, the SHOWWX projector enables a user to connect their iPod, mobile phone or a myriad of other devices to display movies and photos as a WVGA (848x480 pixels) DVD quality “big screen” experience.  Read More

The Casio Green Slim range of projectors do away with the use of mercury thanks to a hybri...

Up until now, for a projector to pack a decent punch it has had to incorporate a high pressure lamp using mercury, which as we all know is a dirty word environmentally. Casio has this week at CES announced the Green Slim range of mercury-free super slim high powered projectors that use a combination of LED, laser and fluorescent illumination capable of brightness up to 3000 lumens, as well as featuring wireless and USB capability.  Read More

Projectiondesign's F35 WQXGA projector makes the dream of a home drive-in a possibility

Projectors have come a long way in the last decade, making true home theaters a reality for many cinema buffs. But why not think a little bigger and build your own drive-in? With Projectiondesign’s F35 WQXGA projector you can do just that. With its ability to project a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution image measuring up to a whopping 65 feet (19.8m) wide it will make the neighbor’s home theater efforts look decidedly lacking.  Read More

Atlona's wireless A/V streamer offers a range of connections and HDTV support

Few would doubt that the ability to stream media wirelessly around the home will, in one form or another, be fundamental to the future of home entertainment. It would seem strange then, that a product apparently versatile enough to wirelessly send video and audio from a PC to an HDTV hasn’t received more support, and the new Atlona PC to Computer Monitor/HDTV Wireless adapter is one of few on the market designed for this purpose.  Read More

If you think that full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution TV or projector is looking a little too low-res for your liking, then Epson has developed a new LCD projector panel that should satisfy your desire for higher detail. The company's new high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT LCD panel for its 3LCD projectors is the world’s first 4K-compatible panel supporting resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 pixels.  Read More

sparkz iPhone dock doubles as a pico-projector

We may have to wait some time before pico-projector technology finds its way into mobile phones as a standard feature, but until then products like the sparkz iPhone/iPod dock projector will help fill the gap. The handheld 4.5” x 3” x 2.5” unit uses a 3M LcoS projection engine to throw a 640 x 480 image at a brightness of 15 lumens - so you'll need to draw the curtains and dim the lights before the show starts.  Read More

With Hollywood set to give us over a dozen 3D feature films in the next twelve months, demand for 3D technology is at an all-time high. As the roll out of digital cinema has taken the industry longer to implement than expected, Thomson’s Technicolor Business Group has announced what it says is an affordable alternative 3D process that works with existing 35mm cinema projectors. While the introduction of such technology will expand the current reach of 3D, not everyone, it seems, is singing Technicolor’s praises.  Read More
