Home cinema and education DLP projector specialist Optoma says it's planning to unveil the industry's most "extensive and affordable" line of 3D-ready projectors, as well as adding 3D-ready capabilities to at least six new models by June.

According to the manufacturer's product director, Jon Grodem, Optoma was among the earliest adopters of 3D and is "committed to being the leading provider of affordable 3D".

Grodem adds that Las Vegas technology trade show CES will be used by Optoma as a springboard to announce the projector manufacturer's "continued and increasing commitment" to 3D technology.

This week, CES attendees can expect to witness Optoma's introduction of its two 3D-ready GameTime projectors, the GT720 and GT360. This follows its unveiling of the 3D-ready HD66 home cinema and PRO350W data projectors.

Analysts didn't take long to deem the HD66 "one of the cheapest ways" to get a high-definition picture at home. The projector can handle two-dimensional content at resolutions of up to 1080p (although it downscales pictures to the native 720p), delivers a brightness rating of 2500 ANSI lumens and a 4000:1 contrast ratio, and can project 3D content in XGA and SVGA resolution as well as 720p HD.
