The Viewsonic VP3D1 Makes Your Projector 3D Capable

Posted Wed May 11, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Any projector with an HDMI input can be made to work with 3D content.

One of the biggest downsides to the 3D revolution is the incredible amount of upgrades required to make 3D work in your home. 3D Blu-ray players aren't too terribly expensive, but buying a new projector can be a lot of money and a lot of work.

The new VP3D1 converter box from Viewsonic is designed to let you work around that last requirement. It boasts a pair of HDMI 1.4 inputs and a single HDMI 1.3 output to attach to your older hardware. By doing so, you can use 3D content with a projector that wasn't built with HDMI 1.4 in mind.

"Our VP3D1 3D HD Video Box,converts the video signal effortlessly for an out of the box exceptional entertainment experience using customers' current projectors," says Roger Chien, projector product manager of Viewsonic.

The VP3D1 is compatible with all projectors with HDMI inputs and is available now at $299.
