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.
The focus on projectors for photography continues. We posted an initial commentary earlier this week which encourages photographers to take a serious look at the latest 1080p resolution projectors. Though they are built for home theater, they have many of the same performance attributes you'd want in a great photography projector--high resolution, no pixelation, high ANSI contrast, and reasonable price. SXGA+ projectors are still a good alternative for those who need high lumen output for large audiences and very large screen presentations. This discussion will continue with a second installment, still underway.
