SIM2 C3X 1080 Grand Cinema DLP projectorWhile digital light projectors drop in price and rise in their ability to deliver crisp images, the gulf between the high-end projectors and the average ones still remains a wide one. Consider SIM2′s SIM2 Grand Cinema C3X 1080 which is described by the firm as being the world’s smallest (by 40cm square) and lightest (10 kilos) full high-def three-chip DLP projector. It also may be the world’s best-looking DLP too, but can it answer a question better than Miss South Carolina?

The C3X 1080 gives you 1920 x 1080 progressive video, 10-bit video processing with full depth of picture, HD scaling, deinterlacing so your 24fps is of the utmost clarity when you’re paying attention to it. It does that by having inside of it three 0.95-inch, 1080p DLP chips designed by Texas Instruments, the best that the industry can make for projection displays. Additionally the unit’s software can calibrate itself to precisely deliver the best picture that your set-up can muster. If the C3X 1080 had a red circle light and spoke in a quiet voice we would call it HAL.

DreamVision DreamBee Projector

DreamVision DreamBee ProjectorWith all the 1080p talk going on with the HD DVD and Blu-ray disc format war it’s nice to see more companies acknowledging through their products that no matter what there is going to be a bigger need for some Hi-Def output. The DreamVision DreamBee projector uses a less costly D-ILA technology as apposed to the popular DLP to produce a full 1080p projected picture that will take full advantage of those Hi-Def discs and players regardless of which format you go with.

The DreamBee doesn’t really come all that cheap, however. DreamVision produces two models, the DreamBee and the DreamBee Pro which retail for £6,999 ($13,961) and £9,500 ($18,950), respectively. The projector models are chocked full of technology and features as you might expect for that kind of cash, including a 3-chip D-ILA light engine, 20,000 to 1 contrast ration, TrueMotionHD, RS-232C home automation integration …

Posted in Projectors,SIM2 by Chris Weber on June 19th, 2007

SIM2 1080p Grand Cinema HT3000E high definition projectorInside this Giorgio Revoldini-designed cabinet is a project that’s able to throw out light to create a high-definition, 1080p projection with over one billion colors on a surface as large as 30 feet across. The SIM2 Grand Cinema HT3000E Projector uses 10 bits per channel processing to produce 1024 shades of each single color to come to this level of quality with a native, uncompressed, high-def 1920 X 1080 resolution.

Casio XJ-S46 DLP Projector

Posted in Casio,DLP,Projectors by Chetz on April 30th, 2007

Casio XJ-S46 DLP ProjectorIf someone asks you to think of three words that best describe a DLP chances are you may come up with the following: heavy, bulky and pricey. Well, Casio is trying hard to make you forget about the first two with its newest DLP unit, the XJ-S46.

This sleek and stylish device projects 2,500 lumens of light but its marvel is in its size (it’s the thinnest projector currently on the market) and weight (3.7 pounds or 1.7 kilos, whichever way you like your weight calculated.) With those specs you can slip this into your satchel, slap it on your back and pedal back from that morning office presentation and then watch “Casino Royale” that night in your home.

Casio also has another model, the XJ-S36, which outputs 2,000 lumens and of course costs less. Both models offer 1800:1 contrast, XGA resolution and are easy …

PS3 on a 200 inch Projection TV

Posted in Games,Projectors,PS3,Sony by Chris Weber on January 25th, 2007

platstation 3 on 200 projection tv connected with hdmi 1So you’re a Japanese gadget guru, what do you have in your house? A 200-inch theater screen of course. Even wonder what a PlayStation 3 would look like on a giant screen TV? Well here are the amazing pictures.

From the English version it appears that the only down side was that the text in the game was hard to read. This is probably because even the game designers didn’t have a 200-inch monster TV. The PlayStation 3 was connected to the projector via a $1200 US HDMI cable. Oh and by the way, who says everything in Japan is smaller? Apparently the Japanese are sizable where it matters, in the Audio/Video realm of course. What do you think I meant?…
