Since I’m posting this blog in late November and we are now in the holiday shopping season, the focus of this blog is on a few useful accessories/devices for a home theater system. I’m not talking about projectors or screens, or even AV receivers. Rather, I’m talking about a few items the new or exiting home theater owner might want to have on their wish list.

This blog presents a preview of new projectors and a few related products that may be introduced and/or demo’ed at next month’s CEDIA Expo 2012. The CEDIA Expo is the most important trade show in the USA for the introduction of new home theater video projectors and related products. Also included below are some products that may come to the marketplace during the next few months, but the manufacturer does not have an exhibit/booth at the CEDIA Expo. In some cases the product information that I discuss below is based the preliminary information from the manufacturer while for some other products the information below is based on what appears to fairly credible rumors. In the following write-up I have tried to clearly identify the rumors from the more firm information. Read the rest of this entry »
This post continues the series of blogs discussing do-it-yourself (diy) passive 3D projection systems that use two conventional front projectors. In my previous blog (i.e., Part 6 of this series), I completed (at least for the time being) the discussion on projectors suitable for use as part of a passive 3D projection system that uses polarized light as the means to separate the right from the left images that make up the stereoscopic image pair that creates the 3D effect. This new blog wraps up the current discussion on passive 3D projection systems that use polarized light. Read the rest of this entry »
This blog is a continuation of my previous discussion on passive 3D projection (HERE). Specifically, this blog is focused on do-it-yourself (DIY) dual projector passive 3D projection systems using polarization as the technique to separate the right from the left images. Future blogs will discuss DIY 3D passive dual projector systems using other technologies. Read the rest of this entry »
D-ILATM Based 3D Projectors
This is the second part of my blog on using LCoS 3D projection technology. We are currently talking about 3D projection using sequentially alternating right/left images and where viewers must wear active shutter 3D glasses. For this blog I will focus on the JVC D-ILA approach used for 3D. Read the rest of this entry »
For this blog I will focus on 3D projectors based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology for which the viewer must wear 3D active shutter glasses. As discussed in my previous blog, this type of 3D projector alternates the display of right and left images that are synchronized with the liquid crystal shutter lenses of the viewer’s 3D glasses such that the right eye only sees the stream of images intended for that eye (i.e., the right image stream) and the left eye only sees the left image stream. LCoS is one projection technology that can be used to create such a 3D projector.
