Runco 3Dimension D-73d 3D Projection System Preview
Luxury display manufacturer Runco wants to bring the 3D revolution to your home cinema.  Shipping with the Runco's 3Dimension Processor and HDH4 Controller, the D-73d Projector is a passive glasses 3D system with a 16x9 screen width recommendation between 72 and 100 inches (in 2D, recommended jumps up to 132 inches with a maximum of 200).  It offers viewers a full 1080p native resolution and is ISF Certified for calibration.Utilizing their proprietary Constant Stereoscopic Video (CSV) architecture, the D-73d projects left eye and right eye images simultaneously leaving the polarized lenses to filter the proper material for each eye.  Runco feels passive glasses are less problematic than active shutter glasses, which need batteries and can suffer from image studder and/or frame rate sync issues.  The Runco 3Dimension Processor is also the first home theatre processer to feature the licensed technology ...

Optoma HD20 DLP Projector Review
With the roll out of Optoma’s HD20 DLP home projector last year, the reality of a 1080p projector lower than $1000 was finally realized.  As Blu-ray is rapidly growing in popularity, there’s no reason that home theater gurus with growing collections of stunning 1080p transfers need to hold off on replacing that old 720p projector.  The Optoma HD20 attempts to meet that need with 1080p output, 4000:1 contrast, and 1700 ANSI lumens.   The retail MSRP of the unit is $999.99 and can be found slightly cheaper around the web. DesignThe design of the HD20 has a very small footprint, which makes it useful as a somewhat mobile projector.  The white body has a sleek finish with silver trim. It can get dusty if positioned on a coffee table and the white finish obviously makes that more visible.  The front grill ...

Sony VPL-VW85 SXRD Projector Review
Not long ago, projecting an image large enough to fill anything bigger than an 80” screen required purchasing a CRT (cathode ray tube) projector that weighed as much as a Smart Car and who only an investment banker could afford.  Those CRT projectors projected film-like images with wonderful lush colors and excellent contrast, but they were slowly replaced with digital projectors weighing and costing one forth as much.  Digital projection technology (DLP, HD-ILA and LCD) has made great strides in color accuracy, saturation, and contrast. Today's digital projectors can output brighter images on bigger screens and deliver the excitement of a big theater in the home, for prices well below those of our old friend the CRT projector.   The Sony VPL-VW85 Bravia SXRD projector is a digital projector based on SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display), which is Sony’s proprietary versions ...

Optoma HD806 DLP Projector
After the Optoma HD8000 replaced last year’s HD80, Optoma created the HD806 for a different segment of projector enthusiasts.  While the projector is still being positioned in their home theater line, the HD806 excels in more light output than other projectors in the Optoma line.  According to the specs, the Optoma HD806 has a maximum of 2,000 lumens, but contrast and color saturation are somewhat reduced.  The HD806 is nearly completely white with silver trim for the lens. The lens is mounted on the left side of the projector, which pushes out beyond the sloped front.  The manual zoom correction is inset at the back of lens and the remote control sensor is mounted just to the right of the lens.  The top of the unit displays the control panel including the power, menu, directional and enter buttons.  These buttons ...

Sony VPL-VW70 Projector
Sony has placed the VPL-VW70 at the top position of their current home cinema projector line.  I found the design to be reminiscent of the Playstation 3 shell, but with a refined, stylish grace.  The midnight black, curved panels on the upper and lower sections of the unit are slick, glossy and frame the unit perfectly.  The position of the cooling fans is indiscernible and the front of the projector features a motorized lens cover that effortlessly slides open when the power is turned on.  It would almost be a shame to hide the projector from view in a custom home theater installation.  The VPL-VW70 (MSRP: $7,999.99) utilizes three SXRD 1920 by 1080 display panels and their Bravia Engine 2 digital video processor to produce a high definition 1080p image.  Sony claims that it’s capable of 60,000:1 contrast ratio using ...
