JVC demonstrated a new 1080p/D-ILA video projector that is expected to sell for around $7000 when it becomes available next year. it looked outstanding, even outperforming the Sony VPL-VW100 ("Ruby") set up side-by-side with it. I saw no significant shortcomings, at least under show conditions. It even had the best contrast I've yet seen on a JVC projector, by far.

McIntosh announced its first video processor, the VP1000 at the show (on top in the photo). It is configured to allow separate scaling, switching, and control over two separate AV zones. It also offers 4 HDMI and 6 component inputs. The new AP1000 Audio Control Center has no video switching of its own, but offers a dedicated control interface port for the VP1000. The AP1000 nevertheless offers an LCD front panel video display for control and live video. The VP is expected to sell for $10,000 and the AP1000 for the same price.

PSB is redesigning their longstanding Stratus line. The photo shows a new Stratus floorstander and center channel. But don't look for it before next year, and the form factor of the cabinet may be slightly different. The drivers in the new Stratus models are expected to use technology developed for the company's upscale Platinum series.

Recall that on Day 1 (setup day-when the
show floor was closed to attendees) I reported on arrays Sony LCD displays, each showing HD clips from diffferent upcoming Blu-ray discs, including possible releases of season sets of <I>Stargate SG-1</I> and <I>Stargate Atlantis</I>. Those clips disappeared with the opening of the show floor, to be replaced by content that extols the glories of Sony products and technology. Oh well.
