Projector manufacturer, SIM2, has launched the world’s first Active 3D projector to use LED lighting.

The new projector – called the M.150 – uses an LED source, as opposed to traditional bulbs, bringing down maintenance time and cost and offering a supreme light quality.

The projector uses three Phatlight LED modules, providing a lifespan of as long as 30,000 hours without needing to change a bulb. The use of the LED light in the 3D projector also gives in an instant on-off function, eliminating the need for warm-up and cool-down periods. The power consumption is also significantly less with the LED bulb than with traditional ‘power-hungry’ units.

The M.150 uses the new TI Darkchp4 chipset with DynamicBlack Technology to provide 3D images, vivid colours and deep blacks. It has a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 which means it has no problem creating bright images even in daylight. It also has output resolution of 1920 x 1080.
It has a full complement of input options, allowing it to be connected to several different devices, including two HDMI sockets, one component, one S-Video, one composite video and one D-Sub connection.

Its heft price tag puts it in the preserve of only the keenest home video enthusiasts, but those who are able – and willing – to fork out for it will be able to bring an incomparable 3D experience into their homes.
