Acer Launches a New 3D DLP Projector

Posted Tue Dec 13, 2011 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The H9500BD utilizes active shutter technology and boasts 2D to 3D conversion.

Acer's H9500BD is a 3D projector that's aimed at home theater enthusiasts and gamers alike. It has a 16:9 native aspect ratio but can be adjusted to 4:3 for Wii games and other content that's not quite up to date.

The active shutter based 3D technology means that in addition to 3D Blu-ray players and game consoles, the H9500BD is capable of hooking up with NVIDIA graphics cards for a 3D PC experience. The projector offers a pair of HDMI ports as well as DVI, VGA, S-video and RCA.

In addition to playing back content that was created in 3D, the H9500BD can convert 2D video to 3D on the fly. It can do pictures too, so if you have some vacation photos to show off you can make them a touch more interesting for your guests.

The H9500BD is available now on Amazon for $1,699.
