ViewSonic Offers Affordable 3D Projector
by M. David Stone

LAS VEGAS—With 3D poised to (potentially) become the next big thing in movies and home entertainment, ViewSonic is announcing its 3D-ready PJD6220-3D projector this week at CES.

The projector offers a native XGA (1024×768) resolution and the ability to accept HD video input up to 1080i as well as PC input at up to SXGA+ (1400×1050). It`s rated at 2200 ANSI lumens with a 2500:1 contrast ratio.

Given how little 3D content is available as yet, buying a 3D-ready projector is a kind of insurance against obsolescence. There`s not much to see yet that takes advantage of the new feature, but you`ll be ready for the 3D wave when it shows up. Ideally, by paying a little extra now for a feature you don`t really need yet, you`ll save money in the long run by not having to replace the projector later.

ViewSonic says that the PJD6220-3D shares most of its features with the ViewSonic PJD6220, the difference being the 3D feature, courtesy of a Texas Instruments 3D DLP engine. According to TI, the engine is similar to the one in the $30,000 F10 AS3D that the Norwegian manufacturer projectiondesign announced at InfoComm in June, 2008. One of the PJD6220-3D`s key features is its affordable price, at $1,300.
