For about a year now there has been a flood of "3D ready" projectors on the market which can get you a 3D image with the assistance of a computer with the right hardware and software. There has been no genuine 3D projectors till now that can simply connect to a 3D Bluray player and with the addition of some glasses give you the same 3D experience a 3D LED TV does. But that is about to change.
There is now a multitude of genuine home theatre 3D projectors coming out with JVC releasing six new models due out mid 2011 in Australia. The DLA-RS60, DLA-RS50 and DLA-RS40, to be marketed by JVC’s Professional Series, and the other three are identical units sold as the Procision Series DLA-X9, DLA-X7 and DLA-X3 with prices ranging from $6,000 - $12,000.
Sony are releasing the VPL-VW90ES, for 3D in full 1080p which is due to Australia in the first quarter of 2011 RRP is expected around $11,000.
Mitsubishi have their new flagship Diamond 3D projector the HC9000D expected to ship in the first quarter of 2011 with an RRP about $9,999.
The bottom line It Has Begun! But it's kind of pricey. At the moment all the releases are quite expensive and the mainstream projector brands are holding back to see more movies made in 3D. Once more movies are out and there are actual TV channels in 3D not just the once in a blue moon finals. Then everyone will jump on board and prices will drop.
