    iPhone projector dock

    This thing just makes sense – lots and lots of sense. It’s the Honlai Qingbar MP101 and I have no idea if you can actually buy one. If and when you’re indeed able to purchase this doodad, you’ll be able to project 640×480 movies and photos from your iPhone (or iPod Touch) while charging the device at the same time. The bulb is apparently good for at least 20,000… Read More

    The Sony VPL-HW10 SXRD makes an IFA appearance

      Rumors and leaks about Sony’s latest SXRD projector has been floating around AV forums for some time now so this unit might be old news to some. Even still, Sony brought the VPL-HW10 out at IFA for the whole world to see. For those not aware, this guy’s calling card is based around x.v.Colour performance for a low, but yet unannounced, price.

  • Epson upgrades projector line with MovieMate 55

    Epson upgrades projector line with MovieMate 55

    Epson today expanded on their MovieMate line with the MovieMate 55. Glancing over the specs, I can’t say it’s a marked improvement over the last one, but I don’t care; I still want one. So the new one you’re looking at up there not only has a brighter light, but it is also a hundred bucks cheaper. Which makes this sweet combo projector even sweeter. Available in… Read More

    projectordesign launches 5 DLP projectors

    projectordesign’s been around the custom install market for a while now and their latest units should maintain top of the line appeal. The entire new lineup features Philips UHP VIDI lamp tech, along with projectordesign’s RealColor image management. All five projectors are going to be available by the end of the year but the company hasn’t announced any pricing yet. Hopefully… Read More

  • Toshiba launches the TLP-XE30U 3LCD projector

    Toshiba launches the TLP-XE30U 3LCD projector

    Business types take notice. Toshiba is launching a new, mobile projector aimed right at you suits. The TLP-XE30U might not have a great name but the 3,000 ANSI lumen brightness, along with a nice three-year warranty should make up for it. It’s got a blackboard mode along with a one-touch auto screen setup for quick pre-meeting prep time. Overall though, this is just… Read More

    SIM2 announces a sub-$5K 1080p projector for the US


    SIM2 makes some mighty fine projectors and the only deterrent the Italian company may have from grabbing a huge market share is the price of said projectors. But today SIM2 announced the Domino D60 DLP front projection system that outputs 1080p video for $4,995. With a contrast ratio greater than 10,000:1, a plethora of inputs/outputs (dual HDMI, component, RGB-HD), as well as a powered… Read More

  • Acer's new projector does HD, WiFi, MPEG

    Acer's new projector does HD, WiFi, MPEG

    I’ve been looking for a projector and this new Acer P5260i looks like it might be just the ticket. The projector itself is fairly middle-of-the-road spec-wise, with 1080i/720p HD support, DLP, a 2000:1 contrast ratio, and standard digital inputs like HDMI and DVI. What’s remarkable about it is the integrated WiFi with built-in MPEG decoding. We’re guessing it mounts like… Read More

    Canon introduces a projector that exceeds 1080 HDTV resolution

    This monster of a projector is part of the REALiS Multimedia Projector line and is called the REALiS WUX10. This WUXGA-resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreen projector uses LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology to produce reportedly amazing color and clear image quality.

  • Texas Instruments pocket projector prototype

    Here’s something that excites me greatly. It’s a prototype of a tiny projector that fits inside of a cell phone. Jim Hallas of Texas Instruments’ DLP group gave me a brief overview of the chipset and here’s some brief information along with my thoughts; The chipset is ready to go. It’s up to device manufacturers to integrate it into their products. I’d… Read More

    Sony announces 1080p projector, time for me to find my own apartment


    I’m not unhappy with the 42-inch Vizio that’s sitting in my living room, but it’s only 720p and who wouldn’t want a 1080p set? My brother splashes up 720p content onto his 90-something-inch screen and that makes me uber jealous. Playing Gears of War, Assassin’s Creed, BioShock, or even Halo 3 just isn’t the same when I come home after spending a few hours at… Read More

    InFocus launches Play Big IN1 gaming projector on Woot

    Forget about LCD and plasma big screens. Projectors are the way to go. Especially when you’re tight on space. Who wants to play Halo 3 or any game on a small ass 42- or 50-inch screen when you can play on something over 100-inches? Well, InFocus has announced the Play Big IN1 Gaming projector, which features multiple S-video, component and composite inputs for DVD players and consoles. Read More

    The Torpedo Projector: You know, for kids

    It’s not HD, it’s not high-end, but for $169 the Torpedo Entertainment Projector might get the kids out of the living room for a while so you can watch Grey’s Anatomy. The projector connects to almost any device and projects an image six feet high on a blank wall. It has a 940×240 resolution and includes a headphone jack so junior’s game of Sexy Poker… Read More

    Just dropped $500 on that fancy Blu-ray player and want to get the most out of it? Try out the InFocus Play Big IN82 projector and see if it holds up to your high standards. This $5500 bad boy uses a single DarkChip3 processor to achieve native 1080p playback with Blu-ray and HD DVD. Throw in HDMI 1.3 and you have yourself one hell of a home theater.

  • Mighty Brighty Projector Paint

    Mighty Brighty Projector Paint


    I like this idea of paint-on screens. It makes sense in that unobtrusive modern way. Granted most white walls would be sufficient for projection, but if you want something more specific consider this. The Mighty Brighty projection screen paint is highly reflective white paint. It’s that simple really. The paint starts at $190 and goes up to $580. Is it worth it? Probably not, but I… Read More

  • The iProjector Hooks Up iPod

    One of the nicest features of the 5th-gen iPod is its ability to output video to a television. This is handy for travelers, as they can take several movies or even a season of their favorite TV show on the road and entertain themselves in their hotel rooms without having to pay $12 or having to explain “Ex Trek: the Next Penetration” to their bosses. They can simply put their… Read More

  • Sony's New 4k Projector Comes Up Short


    We’re all about 4k, the promised Utopian resolution of the near ultra-hi-def future. At display sizes around 292-inches at 96DPI, you really won’t need anything much larger (yeah, right). Sony, lovers of this next-gen technology, has just dropped a new projector for the 4k crowd, using its new SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display, or Voodoo to us), giving it a resolution of 4,096… Read More

The TW1000 will sell in Japan for about $3,000. No word yet on when we might see it over here, but Epson does like to share, so hopefully soon.

  • An Overhead Projector For Your Cellphone

    An Overhead Projector For Your Cellphone

    I don’t see why phones don’t just have a function built into them yet which allows you to project the image somewhere else, but until that day comes, there is Project-a-Phone. The company has previously released an underwhelming 640×480 pixel contraption called the ICD-3000. They believe the demand for the product was high, so they’ve released their ICD-5000, with a… Read More
