Blu-ray 3D Spec Finalized
Today the Blu-ray Disc Assn. approved specifications for delivering 3D content on Blu-ray discs.
We will see the first demonstrations of 3D on Blu-ray at the upcoming CES Convention in Las Vegas, January 7-10. We will be following developments in 3D technology closely, as it is of interest to everyone from video gamers, to HT enthusiasts, to teachers in the classroom.
Tomorrow, Friday, Dec 18, sees the release of the much anticipated Avatar, which is in 3D. If this movie is as successful as the pre-release hype, it should stimulate a great deal of interest in 3D for home theater.
We currently have four 3D-ready projectors in review. They are lower resolution XGA models designed primarily for classroom use. Watch for those reviews to hit in January.
For those looking for a review of the Da-lite High Power screen, we just posted it earlier today. This is another high gain screen, 2.8 gain in this case, which is terrific in the right environment, but not an ideal solution for conventional home theater.
We've also posted several reviews of pocket projectors this week. They are all posted and linked on the home page.
Thanks very much for your use of ProjectorCentral this year. All of us on staff wish you a very happy and safe holiday season.
