Mitsubishi Brings a New 3D Projector to CES

Posted Mon Jan 3, 2011 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

"We've heard this is the "Year of 3D,'" says Mitsubishi's product manager Wayne Kozuki. " But Mitsubishi has been selling 3D-ready TVs since 2007, so it’s the home entertainment industry that is finally catching up to us."

It's true that the company has been doing 3D for some time now, and the new Diamond 3D HC9000D projector shows that experience. It offers a 1080p resolution with a 120,000:1 full on/full off contrast. The new projector can handle screens of up to 100 inches.

The Diamond 3D utilizes an SXRD optical engine and a lens incorporating extra-low dispersion glass in a six-piece, 17 cluster structure. Mitsubishi says that colors and details are crystal clear thanks to the impressive optics.

There's no price yet for the Diamond 3D HC9000D, but we'll be sure to find out more before its release in the first quarter of 2011.
