JVC DLA-HD750 D-ILA Projector

March 5, 2009

By now many of you JVC aficionados (me included) have heard about the DLA-HD750, JVC’s upgrade to the HD100. By all accounts the 750 appears to improve on the HD1/HD100 quite nicely, admittedly there really wasn’t a lot to improve for the average user but one thing that immediately comes to mind is the increased brightness; 300 or so lumens better than the DLA-HD100.

Pioneer Announces Kuro Projector

April 26, 2008

That’s right, Pioneer announced a projector at the High End show in Munich Germany, one that will proudly wear the Kuro badge to boot but all isn’t as it would appear on the surface. The Kuro KRF-9000FD projector features LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) display technology, a 30,000:1 contrast ratio and will no doubt do […]

1080p on the Cheap From InFocus

April 2, 2008

It’s my understanding that this is not an April fool’s joke but the timing still has me nervous. Anyway, it would appear as if InFocus is preparing to launch a new low-cost 1080p DLP projector named the X10 (yeah the name was the other thing that made me suspicious). The single-chip DLP projector is housed […]

Eight Legged Freaks in my Projector

August 25, 2007

This post isn’t about the 2002 film of the same name but it’s a horror story just the same: Spiders may be your projectors worst enemy. No this isn’t a gag or a huge head-start on an elaborate April fool’s joke, I’m unfortunately suffering from this very problem right now. About a week ago we […]

Significant Advancements in DLP Technology

June 6, 2007

Speaking of CE roadmaps, here’s something that you DLP fans may be interested in. The term Unishape (Universal Shaped Lamp Light Technology) may not mean much today but upcoming DLP products that take advantage of the technology, promise reduced video artifacts and dithering, diminished rainbow effects, higher resolution in low-light scenes, brighter images in general, […]

JVC DLA-HD1 – 1080p Projector Review

May 14, 2007

To say that JVC’s DLA-HD1 and DLA-RS1 have caused a slight commotion in the front projection community would be akin to describing a full fledged earthquake as a minor rumble. Every so often a product comes along that redefines our expectations for that price-point, the DLA-HD1 is just such a product.

1080p Projector from InFocus on the Way

May 8, 2007

This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned a 1080p projector from InFocus nor will it be the last, but it does appear as if InFocus is prepping their long awaited entry into the 1080p front projection field. One rather astute AVS Forum member noticed an up-coming dealer training session at AVAD Northeast, (Custom installer; electronics […]

JVC DLA-HD1 – 1080p – Front Projector

April 16, 2007

Three strikes you’re out, twos company; three’s a crowd, the trifecta; I’ve thought of half a dozen cheesy one-liners to open this up with but none of them rang true. Clichés aside I’ve now viewed three of the top (1080p) home theater projectors on the market, the Sony VPL-VW50 (Pearl), the Mitsubishi HC5000 and last […]

Mitsubishi HC5000 – 1080p Projector Review

April 3, 2007

As I mentioned in a previous update it took me nearly six months to get my hands on a Mitsubishi HC5000 but the wait was absolutely worth it. Several months ago I got my first glimpse of the HC5000, that glimpse turned into 5 or 6 full length movies, a dozen or so favorite chapters […]

March 28, 2007

When I first read this bit of news I immediately thought of a song and a movie, no I don’t know why either but I did. Epson has announced a new 1080p projector and while this news in of itself isn’t all that ground breaking; Epson’s price is. The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080 (available […]
