Hi Guys,


Im hoping you lot are the best people to ask.


Im probably not so technically clued up as most of you, but was wondering with the upcoming 3d tech am I right in assuming that the qualia is not capable of displaying a 3d picture due to the hz of the signal.


If thats the case is there a hardware/firmware update that would allow the qualia to process the 3d signal? or is that just not possible/ cost effective.


Thanks

Not true. Given the low cost of such a high-quality projector, you could put two into a double-stack for 3D. There are some conversion boxes coming that will allow this. Though I would recommend using a professional calibrator to assist with such an undertaking.

________ (fill in projector) can be made to 3-D with a second model.

Then again Qualias have poor convergence relative to newer models and no internal patterns to tweak this. This would create issues with color bleeds and sharpness.

Wouldn't think it would be too bad, certainly better than double-stackign a G90 or some such CRT as has been done forever.


A good Lumagen should be able to provide all of the tools needs to line them up pretty good.

Unfortunately, the Lumagen has no features for pixel alignment. At least not in their latest XD. Perhaps they could add it.

Thanks for all the advice,


2 x qualia hmm not sure ive got enough ceiling space for that



But short of running 2 projectors, I take it theres no way to mod the existing one.

As long as they have some form of lens shift capability...

Nah, wouldn't happen. Remember, 3d is not about stacking projectors to show the same image, it's about showing different pictures to each eye to begin with.


All you have to do is align them to a crosshatch pattern as best as you can, even when you screw up the convergence the 3d effect works, because your eyes automatically go cross-eyed to converge the objects. So an object on the same plane (like 2d subtitles) will look slightly miss converged with out the glasses, but as soon as you put the glasses on they will look perfectly converged, as if your stacked them perfectly.

Of course you want to avoid this as much as you can, because it might lead to eyestrain.

Misconvergence in a 3D system would simply change the depth of the picture, which is still an inaccuary although likely not as great or noticable as an RGB misconvergence in 2D.
