If you've heard the RED name before, you've probably heard it attached to digital video cameras - they make some of the best around. The company has made quite a name for itself in the last few years and they're going to branch out a bit in hope of expanding their reputation and business. RED is moving into the projector business with a brand new 3D 4K projection system that bucks tradition and uses lasers. It's also using passive 3D technology, which you'd think would be a lot more common in projectors since that's the go-to for movie theaters.
Stephen Pizzo of 3ality Technica got a look at the RED projector and had nothing but crazy good words to say. "It generated the best color, best dynamic range and best images I have ever seen in 3D or even 2D," he says. His reaction was even stronger when he learned that he wasn't even watching a 4K resolution video, but 1080p. There's no set date for RED's projector yet, and no price has been named.
