More on 3D and projector reviews...
We've posted two 3D articles and several reviews in the last few days. For inexpensive home theater, the Optoma HD66 is a hot little machine.
The Optoma HD66 is very bright, does native 720p in both 2D and 3D, and sells for only $699. If this sounds like it could be your first home theater projector, see the review here.
As far as 3D is concerned, read Bill Livolsi's thorough article, The 3D Renaissance, for an orientation to the whole concept of 3D technology. Meanwhile, Jeff Janas gets into the nuts and bolts of hooking up the NVIDIA 3D Vision System with the BenQ MP776ST. His experience has application to a wide range of 3D ready projectors.
If you want projectors for classroom use, we've got two new reviews, the Viewsonic PJD6221 and the BenQ MP772ST short throw unit.
I've got questions specifically for teachers and K-12 district AV cooordinators: What role do you see for 3D projection technology in the K-12 classroom? Is 3D capability an important factor in your planning and equipment selection? What obstacles do you face in moving ahead with 3D systems? Or conversely, do you not see a practical use for 3D in the classroom? Any comments you have would be welcome. Drop me a note here, and I will do my best to respond.
For consumers, 3D technology is a hot topic these days. We will be posting two more articles on 3D this week.
