The ground breaking PLUS Piano DLP video projector that made waves with its direct sales model and aggressively low pricing, has been upgraded to now include HDTV compatibility, a zoom lens, and progressive video capabilities, yet remains one of the most affordable projectors on the market priced at $3,299.
The Piano HE-3200 uses the Texas Instruments DLP™ Widescreen (480p) Component Set for native 16:9 projection. As with the original Piano HE-3100, the HE-3200 features a built-in Silicon Image progressive scan converter, high contrast ratio of 700:1 and a 4X/six-segment color wheel. To these features PLUS Vision has added 480p, 720p and 1080i inputs for playback of high definition television programming, a 1.2X zoom lens to enhance projector placement flexibility, support for both interlaced and progressive scan signals to deliver the best possible picture from all DVD players and satellite/cable TV sources, and the addition of an RGB-15 input along with component, S-Video, composite and DVI-D inputs.
