they have there own it seems the green is from a blue laser stack going thru yellow to make green,blue and red is pure led.

optoma is the same and is coretronic/young probably(wild speculation here)

We were told a few weeks ago on a thread of we were asking if there is going to be a higher lumen projector with higher resolution 1080P that is LED and some said that it ain't going to happen for a few year... but low and behold ? it's here....
Yes, this looks promising.... anyone want to guess the price when it comes out ?

$ 1500 ?
$ 2000 ?

Will it be worth forking over 2 grand for it ?

Anyone with a LED DLP based projector with lasers ? and how does it perform ?

Can anyone ascertain what quality lens it has ?

Magusto ? check this projector out....

Viewsonic makes some nice projectors but sometimes releases them with buggy firmware, so we're going to have to wait and see how they do this time on this release. I own a JVC RS-45 and a Viewsonic Pro8200 DLP. Viewsonic has lackluster customer service and it needs improved on the warranty process, but other than that they are good.

My biggest concern would be the black levels as Viewsonic has always struggled in that realm.
I like my Viewsonic for some things, but I am not sure if I would buy a Viewsonic in the higher price ranges (maybe!).

LED at this bright would be nice.

If the lens is just as good as the Pro8200 (btw shape and size looks similar), I would say you have nothing to worry about with sharpness uniformity and center-point sharpness either. Viewsonic DLP's are quite sharp, very close to a Mitsubishi hc4000 and only a single step behind a Benq w1200/w6000/w7000. The Mits hc4000 is actually a tiny bit sharper than my Viewsonic at the most focused point, but barely and the Viewsonic has better focus uniformity than the Mits, so it pretty much evens it out. Lens is definitely not an issue even on my cheap Viewsonic, best lens and sharpness easily goes to my Viewsonic in its price range until you get to $1000+ and even then only a couple projectors are sharper. I owned a Mits hc4000 as well and many other projectors, so I know what sharp looks like.

Wouldn't the LED based projectors be better in the black levels than the regular bulb based DLP projectors ?
Wonder if the other projector companies are holding out during CES and release their own new LED projectors in their own time frame ?

This projector has caught my eye. We'll have to wait and see.

No 3D though?

From the photo, no USB port on the back, it does have S-video, VGA for computer, and a RS-232 port.... is this a data office projector ? or geared toward the home market ?
Remember, the article states this is not a model yet, maybe just a early prototype.

Looks sort of like one of the clone, could this be just a beefed up clone with a higher resolution 1080P chip ?

Is it worth it ? if it comes out for $ 2000 ? $ 3000 ?

Is there another photo as I only see the front, unless you are somehow seeing something off the reflection of the table.

Also please use the edit button instead of quadruple posting.

How reliable can we expect it to be, considering that it uses a laser light source which needs a "fluorescent element" to change its color spectrum from blue to green and then must be integrated with a completely different light source, namely LED ?
Scanning the specs, i noticed that it states a blue laser w/fluorescent element for the green primary, a LED light source for the red primary, and no mention of what the unit uses as source for the blue primary, but i imagine it is also a LED.
Personally, i would be wary of this technology "mish-mash" and i think that at this point in time manufacturers should concentrate on both technologies as pj illuminators separately, with some companies specializing on lasers and others on LEDs.

yea bring him in here .......

isn't under same wattage, green LED is always brighter than blue and red? why green has to be laser, even though it has a filter, and i still afraid laser may hurt my eyes.

Gee someone is watching way too many science fiction movies.

The only way a laser can hurt your eyes is if its high power and if its unfiltered and if its collimated and if its not spread out and if someone opens up! the projector caseing and if you rip out a high power laser and if you then pick up the laser and point directly into the eyes

Way too many ifs.

You may be hit by a car if when drunk you sleep on the expressway has a lot less ifs and a much higher probability.

The Casio one has a color wheel (blue-green), but this shouldn't need one since it has 3 lamps.
