BenQ delivers high-performance DLP 3D projectors competitively priced

BenQ has rolled out two new 1080p 3D projectors, the W1070 and the W1080ST. The headlining feature may be the prices, rather than the outright specifications. The W1070 uses a high-end DLP Dark Chip 3 and comes in at $1099, while the W1080ST is a short-throw type allowing it to project large images in confined spaces for $1299.

Samsung P400 projector

Samsung on Thursday unveiled the P400 "pocket" projector for the North American marketplace, a lightweight, miniscule device designed for mobile professionals. The device, unveiled at InfoComm, offers a miniature DLP projector in a tiny, glossy black finish, displaying a resolution of 800 by 600 at a contrast ration of 1000:1. Samsung claims the projector bulb is rated at 150 ANSI lumens, bright enough to display a 30- to 40-inch image in a well-lit office setting.

Acer launches wireless-focused DLP projector

06/13, 11:00am

Acer P5260i Projector

Acer late yesterday unveiled a DLP projector in its Professional series explicitly tailored to wireless use with PCs: the P5260i takes the earlier P5260E and adds 802.11g Wi-Fi that allows it to stream media directly from a computer without needing either a cable or an adapter. The projector can natively play AVI, DivX, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, and XviD videos along with the raw VOB files normally found on DVDs; although the projector itself outputs at 1024x768 resolution, the P5260i can accept both wireless and wired feeds up to 1080i or 720p.

Texas Instruments intros 1920 x 1200 DLP chip

05/13, 1:55pm

TI develops WUXGA DLP chip

Texas Instruments' DLP Products announced on Tuesday it produced the first Wide UXGA DLP chip for data projectors. The chip offers a 1920 by 1200 pixel resolution, resulting in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Norway-based Projectiondesign will be the first to utilize the WUXGA chip in its Professional-series F10 line and flagship F30 range, either of which is capable of 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution, among others. The DLP chip, called .95, allows two full pages of text to be viewed side-by-side and matches the native resolution of many normal computer displays.

JVC develops 8K, 35-megapixel HD projector tech

05/02, 8:35am

JVC 8K Projector Tech

JVC on Friday boasted that it has developed one of the highest-resolution video devices possible that could lead to advanced front projectors or DLP sets. A new D-ILA device is capable of generating an 8K picture, or 8192x4320, at speeds high enough for video. The sharpness amounts to 35 megapixels and is crisp enough to be 17 times sharper than the 1080p resolution used by Blu-Ray or other full HD sources; the resolution is also four times more detailed than the 4K used by very high-end projectors and cameras, and is even larger than Japan's experimental Super Hi-Vision, making it possible to display the 7680x3420 picture without multiple processors for the first time.

ViewSonic ships $499 budget DLP projector

04/16, 11:20am

ViewSonic PJ513DB DLP

ViewSonic addressed a price-conscious audience on Wednesday and shipped the PJ513DB, its latest DLP front projector. The all-black unit is a rare nod to improving the base quality for budget projectors and uses more recent Texas Instruments hardware to generate 2,200 lumens of brightness and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio. Both are vivid enough to be used clearly in ambient light, the company argues. Although capped at an 800x600 native resolution, the new projector can recognize larger resolutions through VGA and accepts 720p or 1080i widescreen video through relevant adapters, such as a bundled component adapter or third-party DVI attachments.

NEC introduces NP-series mobile projectors

03/24, 3:05pm

NEC NP-series projectors

NEC announced the release of two mobile projectors on Monday, the NP100 and NP200, aimed for use in small or home offices and developing businesses. Both look nearly identical and feature Texas Instruments’ DLP technology that allows for a 1,300:1 contrast ratio. The NP100 has just SVGA (800x600) resolution, while the NP200 increases that sharpness to XGA (1024x768) for computers and other high-resolution sources.

Dell readies lightweight M209X projector

03/04, 1:35pm

Dell M209X Projector

Dell on Tuesday provided an extra addition to its projector lineup with a sneak peek at the M209X. The DLP-based projector weighs only 2.6 pounds but is designed to be strong and sharp enough to work either as a computer projector for meetings and classrooms or as a home theater unit. With a 2,000-lumen brightness, the unit can produce a visible image in all but the brightest conditions, Dell estimates. It also combines both HDMI and VGA inputs to provide the best possible digital signal, including for HD sources such as Blu-ray players.

NEC preps ultra-wide 42-inch monitor

01/14, 3:15pm

NEC 42-inch UW Monitor

NEC has unveiled a new display it says will help both for widescreen entertainment as well as for video editors and others who need a large amount of continuous screen space. Officially referred to as the CRVD-42DWX+, the screen switches from LCD to the normally TV-oriented DLP (Digital Light Projection) to allow an extra-long, curved image without bezels; two displays combine to create a single 2880x900 area. Using the technology also has the side-benefit of very intense color accuracy and performance, NEC says: where LCDs often miss colors or exhibit lag, the 42DWX+ displays as much as 170 percent of the NTSC color range with a 12-bit range (versus 8-bit for most LCDs) and draws pixels in just 0.02 milliseconds. The display also generates a much higher than usual 10,000:1 contrast ratio.
