Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions has unveiled two new 3D home cinema projectors – the HC8000D and the HC7900DW projectors – which have been designed to make 3D home viewing easier and more affordable.
The two projectors were revealed at the CEDIA Home Theater Show held in Indianapolis in September, and use one of the industry’s best 2D-to-3D Frame Rate Conversion technologies, resulting in a near-perfect simulation of a true 3D frame of vision.
Mitsubishi product manager, Wayne Kozuki, said that the two new models would open up a new world of capabilities for home 3D viewing.
“We’ve heard that there isn’t enough 3D content in the marketplace, and that is definitely an issue,” he said. “Our new projectors have an amazing 2D-to-3D conversion feature that actually turns regular 2D films into amazing 3D movies. Even old movies like The Wizard of Oz can become a 3D masterpiece, right in your own home.”
Both projectors are compatible with Universal 3D glasses, making family viewing easy and more affordable. The HC8000D has an 30,000:1 contrast ratio for rich details, even in darkly-lit movies, with 1,300 lumens of brightness and extra-long lamp life of up to 5,000 hours in low mode. The HC7900DW projector has a 150,000:1 contrast ratio, 1,500 lumens of brightness and up to 5,000 hours of lamp life as well.
Both projectors have Texas Instruments’ latest DLP® .065-inch DMD chip, providing vibrant 2D and 3D images in full high-definition, 1080p resolution.
