My projector picks from CEDIA 2007
 
Last year, without question, the projector to have or at least see was the Sony VW50 or Pearl. While Sony has updated the Pearl, it was not the "it" projector of the show. While I'm not entirely sure which product that "it" title fell to there were several projectors that I took notice of.

First was Sanyo's new and affordable 1080p LCD projector which is retailing for $3,000.00. This thing was super bright (Sanyo was showing it in a booth) and the image quality, both in saturation and black level was wonderful. I've already requested one for review. Check it out here:

I also really liked Planar, which is the entry level product from the Runco family of displays which also includes Vidikron.

Epson was showing a few new goodies, including an all-in-one projector solution which includes a screen, built in speakers from Atlantic Technology, a DVD/receiver unit and of course your choice of Epson projector. The packages start at $4,000.00 complete. Imagine a 100 inch screen with surround sound and HD picture quality for $4,000.00. And it looked great by the way. Check it out here:

Both Samsung and Panasonic had strong showings on the projector front but I was amazed at the sheer number of projectors being fitted with Anamorphic lenses giving the viewer that true cinema feel with a 2:35 or cinemascope aspect ratio. This wider widescreen was everywhere and so was Stewart's CinemaWide screen which is just too cool for words. I'm still figuring out how to get one.

The Cinecurve is super nice! Especially when it had the Runco SC-1 running to it! I agree the Planar's were very nice, I never made it to the Samsung projection booth which I was told by many had the best video of the show!

Between the curved 2:35 screens and that StarGlass, Stewart had some of the best video of the show...again. Granted it was all being pumped out by Runco projectors but never the less it was AWESOME!

I still haven't opened the topic of cutting out the wall into the step daughters (old) room for the new 10+" screen with the StarGlass, and maybe that is a good thing. If I had a good room that I could even somewhat control light into I would love that Cinecurve screen! That thing is awesome, quiet, fast and quite frankly seems to be the cutting edge of the technology now.

Alas, I am a lowly RPTV guy.......

kennyt, for myself and others who may not know, what or who is StarGlass?
And though we are familiar with Stewart, and Runco, it seems Samsung continues to come in there with great product reviews.
But when you see homes in MHT, you don`t normally see, Samsung? Why is that?

And by the way, you are not a lowly RPTV guy. I still believe for picture quality and screen size, High Definition RPTV`s are one of the best values in the industry today. They do not have the "cool' factor like the other technology`s, but..................................... ......
