Digital Projection Short-Throw Projector

At CEDIA, Digital Projection introduced a product so new, it doesn't even have a name yet. It's a 1080p, LED-lit DLP projector expected to list for about $10,000 and designed for extremely short-throw situations—in the demo from which this photo was taken, the projector was directly above a 6-foot-wide Stewart Studiotek 130 screen at a throw distance of only 12 inches! The light from the lens bounces off an integrated mirror and onto the screen at a severe angle, which means there must be some pretty sophisticated geometric processing going on. It also provides wireless HDMI connectivity, though the rep I spoke with didn't know which type. Unfortunately, it was difficult to judge image quality in the brightly lit show-floor environment.

Elsewhere in DP's huge booth, the company's other new models were being demo'd in blacked-out areas, and all looked fabulous. I was particularly impressed with the M-Vision Cine 400 3D (~$19,000) with active glasses on a 9-foot-wide 16:9 Stewart Studiotek 130 and the M-Vision Cine 230 (~$7000) on an 8-foot-wide screen of the same material. For more on these models, see my previous coverage here.
