If your like me and have too much money to spend and so find yourself wanting a new 3D projector. Let’s say your not a fan of Sony and JVC’s active glasses are too much hassle and require the Top Gun of pictures so what do you do?
Why not buy yourself a Runco.
More specifically a Runco 3Dimension D-73d 3D projector.
This dual stack passive D-73d 3D projector provides you with all of your eggs in one basket with more besides!
For start, it's a Runco, then we have the fact its based around the latest LED light technology, its passive 3D that offers 1080p 3D pictures without the need for expensive active 3D glasses. Enjoying 3D correctly will say good bye to eye strain or loss of brightness and say hello to a rich experience full of depth and enhanced viewing pleasure.
The multi award winning Runco D-73d has got everyone talking and rightly so. It is an amazing projector that will complement any dedicated home cinema room or family room where it can be enjoyed time and time again. At this point I better come clean, I currently don’t actually own one, though I have had the pleasure of using one on many occasions, now if that lottery ticket pays out tonight this will be the first item on my charge card.
Once again we find ourselves looking at another projector which is setting the standard within a given price point. Hello Vivitek.
The Vivitek H5085 is striving to improve on generations before by offering a dramatically increased contrast ratio up to 35,000 from 25,000 and a brighter image of 1800 lumens. Add this to the choice of three interchangeable lenses to enable even the most difficult of throw ratios to be accommodated, and we have a winning package.
There is no need for any movie, sporting event or games console to feel let down by this projector, it is guaranteed to offer a real film like image with vivid colours the brightest of whites and blacks like a worm hole!
We would like to point out at this point that we except no blame if it causes a “keeping up with jones’s” phenomenon within your social group.
Wouldn’t it be great to use a projector like you use a TV. One of the minor annoying aspects for people who wish to use a projector in the on/off fashion like a TV is the warm up and cool down cycle. Well, say hello to the Grand Cinema Mico range of projectors from the world of Sim2.
It would be understatement saying that the Italians have nailed it with this one, not only have you got the convenience of being able to turn this projector on and off like a TV, but it will also produce a picture that outclasses most TVs. Onboard the Mico we have the latest from Texas Instruments with the DLP DarkChip 4 chip for the most film like images with outstanding sharpness. Additionally, not being based on a conventional bulb and colour wheel, those who find they suffer rainbow effects from standard DLP projectors will find it completely absent from the Mico.
What more could you want from the Grand Cinema Mico? How about perfect colour, a bright punchy image and great blacks for that immersive movie and television experience. Did I forget to mention you that you don’t need to worry about bulbs, I think I did, why, well being based on the latest LED light engine you don’t have a bulb to change . Producing a perfect image that wont dull or age until the day the projector is retired. SIM2 very conservatively pitches the lamp life at at around 30,000 hours or 5 hours a day for over 16 years, at this point you might actually wish to upgrade to the latest SIM2 projector!
You’ve got your PS3, you’ve got your Sky HD with 3D movies and sports, but your not getting that 3D experience that you're seeing advertised everywhere, well thank goodness for Themescene.
Say hello to the 3DXL adaptor for of their 3D ready projectors. For less than the cost of new 50” TV you can experience the HD67N and the 3DXL bundle. This high definition cinema projector gives you spectacular images for the perfect big screen experience. A punchy 2000 lumens of brightness combined with a 4000:1 contrast ratio for that huge 720p immersive picture.
Sony has long been known for their range of capable LCD projectors, but they have now introduced the very nicely spec’d VPL-VW90ES model (the name just rolls off the tongue!).
The new full HD 1080P model boasts a raft of high end specifications including high speed refresh rates, massive dynamic contrast ratios, Iris control and a very impressive 20dB fan noise level. But one sure thing to bring it to most peoples attention will be its active 3D compatibility.
Picture fidget levels for an LCD are very low, and the overall effect is excellent. Installation and setup are a breeze given the Sony’s excellent picture zoom and shift capabilities. The whole package is in fact something that at its price probably makes it the projector of choice for those of you looking to experience 3D using an LCD system.
JVC looks to be amongst the first to launch a range of 3D compatible projectors.
Using their own patented DiLa technology, they all boast full 1920 x 1080p resolutions at 50, 60 and 24 Hz. Just to be sure, JVC has included Sequential 3D, side-by-side 3D and top and bottom 3D methods of display. So you shouldn’t get caught out by one manufacturer supply a format you won’t have.
3D is fast becoming accepted as a new format for TV and Projection, and whilst the interaction between some electronics are at their basic stage, the overall package looks very promising. With projectors giving the kind of image that the new JVC range offers from standard 2D, then quite frankly, we don’t really care.
Installing this unit is as simple as you could possible hope for. Super lens shift and zoom options make it a cinch to get the image where you want it, and the size you want it. After that, prepare yourself for a good hour of calibration and the resulting picture is very sweet indeed.
The unit is also extremely quite in operation, so over your head installation is no problems.
Starting at £3600.00, the range extends up two further models. But even the baby we’ve installed, gives great results.
