In Process

We've just posted a review of the Infocus IN83, which is their latest 1080p DLP home theater projector. And in short, it is clearly the best home theater projector yet made by InFocus. It is a bit pricey, and it is sold only through custom installers and specialty retail stores. So it is not the first thing we'd recommend for the do-it-yourself enthusiast unless your primary objective is to get a super bright image for ambient light situations. However, it is a great projector for both video and digital photography.more

Focus On Projectors for Photography

This afternoon, we are posting a review of the ViewSonic Pro8100, which is that vendor's first 1080p home theater projector, and the first model to be sold by ViewSonic through the custom installer and specialty retailer channel. That is a remarkable diversification in channel strategy, and it remains to be seen how successful they will be.

After sorting out some technical issues, we are proceeding with the review of the Infocus IN83, and that review will be posted by the end of next week.more

Impressive BenQ Model and Upcoming Reviews

We've just posted a review of the BenQ W20000, the newest flagship, high performance 1080p projector from BenQ. Overall, this is the most impressive home theater projector yet made by BenQ. Though retail priced at $7,999, it is available for 4,999, including a three year warranty. Outstanding value for sharp, high contrast 1080p performance.more

Projectors and Screens Enroute

Thanks very much for all the feedback regarding the use of projectors for the display of photography. There is obviously great interest in this subject, and we will focus on testing a variety of models in different price ranges specifically for this purpose. We have already invited a number of submissions for this evaluation, and the equipment is winging its way to Las Vegas.more

How About Screens?

We have completed the construction of our contrast testing facility, and I will be posting an article focused on contrast specifications in the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, we have received two new 1080p projectors, and reviews of both of them are underway. These are the Infocus Play Big IN83, and the Viewsonic Pro8100. Right behind them is the Optoma HD65.more
