With Marantz's new display, you can enjoy plasma technology without breaking the bank to do so. According to the company, the $6,000, 42-inch PD4220V widescreen monitor boasts high brightness and outstanding color accuracy and contrast. The monitor features an 853-by-480 resolution, 4:3 and 16:9 formats, and a DVI input. It's compatible with computer images up to UXGA resolution, and it automatically scales (up or down) video sources as necessary. An RS-232C serial port is also included.
Barco has contributed display technologies to diverse fields like flight simulation, railroad management, and digital cinema projection. The company has now turned its attention to producing digital light projectors for the home, creating the CineVERSUM line. The CineVERSUM 70 is HD-compatible and equipped with Texas Instruments' high-def DLP chip. The sturdy cast-aluminum chassis is designed to offer even heat distribution for optimal fan tuning, so you'll barely hear the projector. The CineVERSUM 70 is ideal for screens ranging in size from 70 to 90 inches diagonally and is available for $13,000.
