Sony’s Next Gem/Projector a Diamond

September 19, 2006

I have to say I kind of like the use of precious gems as internal codenames for the Sony SXRD projectors; it makes it a hell of a lot easier to keep them straight as opposed to model numbers, anyway back to the point. Back in June I mentioned the Sony Pearl and shortly thereafter […]

September 8, 2006

Not one to be accused of saving the best for last, Sim2 has pre-announced one of their big guns from the up-coming CEDIA Expo 2006, next week in Denver. The SIM2 Grand Cinema HT5000 claims the title of the world’s first three-chip 1080p DLP projector, designed specifically for home theater use. Warning marketing-speak incoming: “Three-chip […]

Front Projector Shipments Up 28%, Music to My Ears

September 1, 2006

While not as provocative as headlines like “Plasma TV sales up 87%” I’m really pleased to hear about any increase in front projection sales and a 28% increase isn’t too shabby in my book. In all honesty a 28% increase is quite impressive if you consider how little the typical retailer promotes front projection. Walk […]

InFocus IN76 Video Projector Review

August 14, 2006

It’s odd to think that video projectors with 720 lines of vertical resolution and 800 lumens are available for less than $3000, considering that when I got into the business a comparable projector would have sold for nearly five times that, not that we even had 720p then but that’s a different story altogether.. For […]

Sony Pearl (VPL-VW50) Projector Confirmed

August 7, 2006

So now we have a model number, some specifications and even a rough street date of October for release. Now all we need is a firm retail price and Sony can claim the distinction of offering the lowest priced (estimated around 6k) 1080p front projector on the market. About those specifications, it looks like the […]
