If you caught my DWIN TransVision 3 review, then you know I’m pretty enthusiastic about their projectors, but hey now their releasing one I might actually be able to afford. The Dwin TransVision 4 is a high definition front video projector system that includes a native-rate, outboard digital video processor and is built on Texas Instruments DarkChip-2 720p DLP technology. Suggested retail value for the system is $6,495 and it’s slated to be available in April of 2005.
One very appealing feature of the TV4, aside from DWIN’S optical pedigree, is the single proprietary DIN style DVI cable, which connects the outboard processor to the projector. This one cable is all you need to run to the projector and you then have 10 video inputs including 2 DVI-HDCP, 2 RGB, 2 S-video 2 components, and 2 composite inputs all at your disposal without having to ever worry about running a new cable to the projector. In addition, each input (including the two DVI-HDCP inputs) allow for full independent user control for brightness, contrast, color saturation, tint, gamma, and sharpness. All settings are automatically saved and recalled for each input and video type.
The TransVision4 also incorporates Carl Zeiss optics which makes the TV4 at first glance a really promising projector package, especially when you consider the bundled processor and a retail price of $6,495. With a little luck, I’ll have a review of the unit sometime after they ship in April.
