LG has announced a new ultra-short focus Cinema Projector at CES 2013. With the Ultra-Short Focus design, it projects a 100″ Full HD Video experience and as close as 55cm from its projection screen. This soon to be announced projector also features WiDi (Intel Wireless Display) and expected to hit Korea this month at around USD1000.
Sharp’s putting out a plethora of new devices at CES, and among them is an addition to its existing 3D DLP projectors called the XV-Z30000. It’s a 1600-lumen 3D projector that throws a 1080p image on whichever wall you point it at, and keeps the quality up thanks to a 50,000:1 contrast ratio. Connectivity comes courtesy of dual HDMI inputs and its got home automation control compatibility from all the big players along with LAN control as well. The XV-Z30000 comes with two sets of 3D glasses, and will be available for $5,000 in March 2012.
According to the manufacturer, the M110 weigh about 0.8 lbs, integrates 1 GB of flash memory as well as a Micro SD card expansion slot and features VGA, HDMI and USB interfaces. There is also a 1W speaker, which would allow users to, if they have to, self-contained presentations, which, however, only support JPG files in such a scenario.
Dell also offers a free utility to convert presentations for storage on an iPhone / Android phone to wirelessly stream a presentation to the M110 (which, however, requires the purchase of an optional wireless dongle for $70, in addition to the base price of $500 for the projector. Alternatively, Dell offers a remote control for $25.

Sony already has a 3D projector, the VPL-VW90ES, but this thing cost a whopping $10k, and that’s not going to fly off the shelves. Now the company is launching the “affordable” VPL-HW30ES for the rest of us this year, featuring some of the same 240Hz SXRD tech in a cheaper package.
There’s no word yet, but it’s confirmed shipping in Europe and Japan next month with a pricetag of 370,000 yen ($4,626 US) in the latter. That lower price nabs specs like a claimed 70,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,300 lumens of brightness and all the picture adjustment settings befitting a product rocking the Elevated Standard tag, along with an upgraded 3D system to reduce crosstalk.
3D compatibility is achieved with Sony’s new lighter active shutter 3D glasses and an add-on IR sync device that are both sold separately — no complex lens switching necessary.

Hybrid cars, we’ve seen plenty coming these days, but hybrid projectors? Is this a joke? Well not really, Casio has announced two new projectors, and they have hybrid light source technology.
Alright, the word ‘hybrid’ might be overused here, but it is indeed hybrid. The projector is equipped with a Laser and LED hybrid light source. Dubbed as the XJ-H1650 and H1600, both projectors achieve high brightness without the use of a high-pressure mercury lamp, by projecting three colors through a DLP chip: red emitted by a high-lumen red LED, green converted from blue laser light with a phosphor, and blue emitted by a high-lumen blue LED.
The Casio XJ-H1650 and H1600 deliver 3,500 ANSI Lumens and have a lifespan of 20,000 hours, reducing maintenance and cutting operating costs.

When it comes to ultra-miniature laser display technology, Microvision is the company to go to. Nobody wants to lug around a projector if you need to travel often, and only do some slideshows to a few people. It’s not feasible to have a huge projector, unless your audience is a classroom of students, or even a hall. That’s why the latest pico projector from Microvision makes very sense. Read more…
