Greetings all! Most of the Classroom Projector Report: Best School Projectors for K-12 Education is up and ready!
I will still be making a few changes, no doubt, including more smaller comparisons and overviews.
The Epson BrightLink 485Wi interactive projector.
The Best In Classroom awards are up! If you haven’t read about them in-depth yet, here’s a taste:
The Classroom Projector Report divides the 16 projectors considered into two classes, “Interactive” and “Standard” (non-interactive).

The 3D Entertainment summit (and the adjoining mobile summit), have seen some interesting thoughts (and technology).
First of all, I sat and listened to a panel with James Cameron, who is very big on 3D (can you say Avatar…).
He and others have dazzled us with a lot of impressive numbers for 3D, and especially mentioned the rapid growth of 3D in the Read the rest of this entry »

This will be my last blog before a final walk through of the show (only an hour of time to spare).

Visit Ron’s blog, “Home Theater and Projectors: The Technical Side” now!
It’s time for me to introduce another new blogger on our site. Welcome Ron Jones, below he’s provided a brief introduction to himself, and tomorrow I’ll be posting his first serious blog on the technical side of projectors and related home theater.
I’ve asked him to write a short intro, for me to post here. After that, I want to tell you a bit about what we’re up to, blog wise, and why Ron’s starting to blog for us. So, here’s Ron:

The Sharp XV-Z17000 looks like it's predecessor
Wow, a practical 1080p home theater projector. I set the Sharp XV-Z17000 down on the table in my theater, plugged it in, connected it to my PS3, and DirecTV box, and dropped in Alice In Wonderland in Blu-ray 3D.
Eureka! It works – in “living” 3D. My PS3, and the disk recognized the projector as a Blu-ray 3D device, and everything fired right up.
So, what have we here? The XV-Z17000 projector from Sharp is essentially a slightly updated (overall) version with 3D, of the existing XV-Z15000 which has been around more than a year, and Read the rest of this entry »

Last night I attended the Digital Experience (the major Press only event) at the CES Show, and pico projectors and pico projector containing devices were in abundance. More than 100 vendors were showing off their technology, mostly at small 10×6 foot table top booths. I liked the pico projector cameras and camcorders I saw. Not bad! Read the rest of this entry »

OK, my thanks to the folks at Epson America, marketing, for putting together this handy-dandy list that now cross references current US and EU Epson projectors, so you all can keep things straight – which has always been a challenge. Here ya go: Read the rest of this entry »

OK, I haven’t been writing much. Today is the 27th day Projector Reviews Inc., myself, Lori, etc. are now living in our new home.
That also means it’s 28 days since we moved out of the last house, with all my gear packed up, and my two viewing rooms there, abandoned.
I’m back in business! Soon to be better than ever! Here’s the scoop on the two new rooms: Read the rest of this entry »

Greetings, from CEDIA in Atlanta!
OK, I’m going to blow through a whole bunch of projectors (and things) I saw yesterday, and today. I had hoped to get you all a good amount of detail on the new Epson “R” projectors, and have it posted by now, but I’m still awaiting an email. Tomorrow I hope, I’ll have it for sure come monday. Here goes. I run through the projectors pretty much in the order of my meetings. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s almost CEDIA time, and today Epson gave us a lot of info on the nine new home theater projectors they will show next week.

- New High End Projector line sporting three models
- Two new MovieMate all in one projectors
To keep things less cluttered, below is a quick sentence or two on each projector, but, I will follow this blog entry with three more blogs
Here’s the quick version: Read the rest of this entry »
