- a left/right select for passive via dual projectors
I was asking specifically in the single dlp projector, 720p, 120hz scenario.
- Icester's polarity flipper is for passive *single projector* solution. If you have dual projectors, you wouldn't use a flipper.
- It was already stated that the viewsonic equipement only claims to work at 720p, so is only really a solution to the hordes of us with 720p 120hz projectors.
- The specific post that I had quoted was talking about a $1300 entry cost, with a 720p 120hz proj + "demuxer" (defiance cp said 3d-xl) + polarity flipper (which deficancep referred to as the demuxer - part of my question was for him to clarify).
Your point about the emitter is a valid one, but honestly, why would anyone bother building a 3d adapter box without one? You are right that it is possible that the viewsonic would not come with one, but I believe if that is the case it would be an example of hideous incompetence on their part. The whole point of the box is to expand compatibility - only morons would cripple it by making it incompatible with every tech out there that requires some kind of emitter (including but not limited to polarity flippers). Do you have any specific knowledge that suggests it doesn't have an emitter port?
Oh and next question: Why do these 3d adapter boxes have two inputs and one output instead of one input and two outputs? It seems like a huge engineering oversight to design a piece of equipment that forces an already cheap tech (hdmi switch) at the cost of an obvious market (dual projector passive). Unless there is some 3d tech I'm not aware of that feeds dual hdmi?
