What do we know about any/all new DLP projectors coming out in the next six months??


I know about the new Sharp z9000, any others?? Do we know features, etc.???


Any upcoming DLP's look like BIG sellers??

We'll know more after CEDIA, the last opportunity this year for companies to introduce new products. I would venture to guess we'll see more 1280x720 DLP projectors with RGBRGB color wheels and 1000:1 contrast ratio for under $10k. It's going to be a great year in 2002.

Sim2 Seleco will also have a new projector based on the 16:9 TI chip. Chances are it will be over $12K. It is on my short list of projectors I want to see at CEDIA.

cain,


the hd1 is the first high def chip from ti. it is the 16:9 chip that you hear referenced. it has a process call dm3 for dark metal 3. this colors the assembly under the mirrors black (sometimes call a black chip) to increase contrast. it is also fast enough for 6 segment wheels spinning at 5x or so. check out the reviews being posted here on the sharp 9000 tonight. also read the thread in the special guests section where peter broas from ti joined. he is the one to commented that there would be pjs other than the sharp at cedia.

Cain,

Reliable sources indicate that the Seleco 1280x720 (HD1 chip) projector will indeed be shown at CEDIA. I believe the product designation is HT300. These same sources have hinted that it will have Sage processing and superior optics compared to the Sharp 9000. Unfortunately, it will cost considerably more than the Sharp.

Thanks guys, it looks as if this is an exciting time for those of us who have been on the fence waiting to buy our first projector.


I can hardly wait to see what the next six months hold for the new DLP projectors coming out!

No evidence to support it, but I'm hoping the rumoured InFocus 1280x720 appears, with the Safe Faroudja chip (it would be a surprise if it didn't, since the LP530 has it), and at a lower price than the Sharp.

this has been the rumor. i asked broas about this specifically in his appearance on the special guest section. i said:


can you comment on your business arrangement with sharp? is it exclusive for some period of time or is it possible that we will see several FPTV vendors doing HD1 based systems in the same time frame? (btw - nice job getting the king of lcd to do a dlp system )


he replied:


As for the Sharp HD unit, they are the only company to announce an HD1 based front projector. See you at CEDIA!

Dean,


Great point.


I don't think which projectors have DVI inputs with the new copy protection circuit (what's it called?) is a side issue at all, I would think that your question has become a main issue at this point, right along side with how many pixels on the DMD chip. When I buy my next HDTV/Sat decoder in 2002/2003 I want to make sure it is going to plug in and work with my multi-thousand dollar projector. I hope that people who attend CEDIA can ask this type of questions directly to the manufacturers.


All the best,

Ricardo

Personally, I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't buy any copy protected sets. If no one buys them then there will not be any market for copy protected content.


But, since they do represent probably almost all that's available in the next generation that could be copy protectable, since they are all digital, if most to none of them support it, then that says something right there.

Dean,


I guess I need to further understand DVI/HDCP. The DVI digital connection sounds great, especially for a DMD based digital display. The thing I don't understand is that if have a next generation SAT HD receiver with DVI on the back is the HDCP part still required on the display end even if the program is not copy protected. Let's say I'm watching a fishing show in HIDEF, no copy protection flags at all and I have a 1999 projector with a DVI connector, will it work? Or is the HDCP still required for my DVI connection to work?


All the best,

Ricardo

I don't know this, but I am hoping Dell ships my DLP out sometime in the next six months.

hi everybody,


we received last week the first plus piano. the machine is unbelievable. rgbrgb colour wheel, silent, silent, silent (officially 32 db) no light outside the housing, no lights on the screen outside the chip, 848 x 600 resolution, dvi-d input, rca, s-video and component. wide angle lens,


we were realy "shocked" by seeing test images through s-video. no flickering - looked like a frozen image. this was an image, we know only from progressive sources like the dvd 2800 or de iscan pro form silicon image. later we found out, that the piano is the first projector with this famous chip sil 503 from silicon image.

What will be the retail price in DM ? And, how far is your shop located from Aachen ? (in km)


Will it be available from mid-august onwards ?


What is the throw distance to get a 2m wide 16:9 image ?


Any word on the angle ? When the projector rests on the floor, what is the approximate distance from the bottom of the image to the floor from a let's say 4 metres distance ? (Does this work vice versa for the ceiling ?
