There haven't been any announcements of 1080p 3D projectors this year at all, the commonly talked about ones (Panasonic, JVC, Sony) haven't made any announcements.
The same logic why we assume they will have 3D machines applies to DLP IMO. What I mean is I'd expect pretty much any projector (DLP or otherwise) announced at CEDIA or IFA to be 3D capable, or at least I'd expect all manufacturers making announcements to announce 1080p 3D machines.
Seems kind of strange. Thats why I wonder if it's even possible to create a 1080p 3D DLP projector. Maybe it's a limitation of the colour wheel or something.
It's not, DPI has 3D capable 1080p+ DLP machines, including single chip ones:http://www.digitalprojection.com/Bro...1/Default.aspx
BTW, it's an HDMI bandwith limitation that can't handle 1080p 60hz 3D. If they made a projector or TV with a Dual Link DVI port then we would be all good. 1080p 60hz no problem.
There's no point though, as far as video goes, there are no 1080p60 sources, none. Only 1080p60 sources are game machines (or computers). HDMI 1.3 can do 1080p120. HDMI 1.3 upped bandwidth to 10.2Gbps, 1080p120 is only about half that.
