Ive Been Planing my next Projector upgrade and I'd really like it to be at least be 3d blu ray - Ready with the new 3d formats.

sorry bout the long post

Hopefully some one can fill in the blanks ??
Heres my understanding of how 3d can be achieved so far .

Option 1 The Complex road

2 projectors Not lcd cuz they already have built in polarizers. A silver screen, a computer system, with a capable video card(of driving 2 display devices) and some pretty nice polarizers.

Option 2 The i dont think will work road

A DLP projector with shutter glasses (pc and Nvidia capable Graphics card???)

can this work without a PC in the mix?
Can any DLP projectors input(and) Output 120 fps?

option 3 The most likely Road
this is where i have the most questions

any projector Capable of Not only displaying 120 Frames per second, but also has the ability to except the video stream input @ at 120 FPS.
Plus shutter glasses.

I'm not sure that ive seen one that inputs 120Hz/FPS only 24 or lesser formats, up converted to 120FPS output with on board processing (5:5 pull down)

will any of the new beamers capable of this be in the 2 - 3k price range??

This sounds to be whats needed to make the new 3d blu-rays work.

theres a good article hear on the future of 3d displays and blu-ray.

http://www.videobusiness.com/article/ca6601652.html

I wouldnt mind if they could get 3d working on 60hz displays that be 30fps per eye. whats the big deal if film is shot only @ 24FPS then your more then covered. Most tv's should be able to play this back from launch anyways.

only question is how annoying would the motion judder be?

Here's the only consumer projector, that I know of, built specifically for 120Hz 3D.

Fact is, 3D is just becoming emerging visual technology.

Most new TVs are now saying they are "3D" ready which I think means they will be able to create 3D viewing without need for polarizing glasses.

Dual projection or "stereo" 3D projection is VERY expensive at this time. Barco is one company that is selling Stereo 3D systems to high end business customers for presentations - did I remember to say EXPENSIVE?? Like $50k.

At the same time there seems to be a lot of action going on in the 3D arena. Most Theaters in the US are upgrading to 3D capable digital systems for a zillion dollars per screen to try and lure back people like me who prefer Theater in the Home and to justify a big increase in ticket prices and why not? TV producers and specially Movie makers are rapidly getting into 3D production - Why? Cause it's the next step in the evolution of visual entertainment.

Who wants to watch 2D flat images when you can get the depth and realism that the new 3D processes will provide.

Do a google for DDD 3D and you will get hits for set top box systems that promise to render/process ANY video into a sharp 3D output but you will have to wear the special polar filter glasses to use it (I don't mind glasses - I wear them anyway and I WANT 3D NOW!!!

I think projectors near consumer affordable price points will be arriving maybe in 2009 and more probably in 2010 so my opinion based on online research would be do a lot of your own online snooping and digging and wait a year or so for either a 3D PJ or a separate box with image processor and software that will convert most content to decent and acceptable 3D.

There's was a bunch of talk in the +3K thread on using two RS1s (or was it RS2s?) for 3D. With the number of people upgrading in December, it's probably not as pricey as one might think to pick up two used RS1s. (Expensive, but nowhere near 50K)

Good luck with this...it'd be great if you could get it working.

Enjoying my second TW4000 and my new screen.
As my wife said, "Wow, it really does look a lot better...and if I think that way, imagine how you must think it looks!"

if you plug JVC DLA-RS2 with the word 3D into a search engine there some interesting articles on this one

supposedly projects 3d without any glasses (some sort of magic eye type effect maybe ),

think its in the 7-8k price range tho, but its a sign of things to come...
