3D cinemas, 3D handhelds, 3D glasses, and 3D HDTVs. What's next? 3D
projectors! If a 50" (or larger) 3D TV isn't large enough for you and
your family, ViewSonic
is making a move to bring the 3D frenzy that has
taken the world by storm to a slightly larger format. The new PJD5352
projector is a short-throw device that can work in extremely small
spaces, casting a 50" image at a distance of just 3 feet away.
There's a DLP chip within the XGA projector, a 1.2x optical zoom, 2600
lumens and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. It also supports a 120Hz frame
rate, 5W speaker and a weight of 5.5lbs. Several other convenient
features include multiple preset presentation
modes, closed captioning for the hearing impaired, an “Off to Go”
feature for bypassing the usual cool down phase and a Kensington
security lock and security bar for increased theft deterrence.
It's available now for $749, but we get the feeling that most consumers
will wait for an HD version of the 3D projector. If you're going 3D,
you might as well go 720p or 1080p too, right?
