New midrange 3D projector announced by Sony

By Updated on

Manufacturers are pushing 3DTV a lot this year with numerous sets becoming available. The technology hasn’t been taken up by the consumer as much as the companies would like, but it doesn’t seem to deter the manufacturers from releasing new products. Now a new midrange 3D projector is announced by Sony.

The company launched their first 3D projector late last year the VPL-VW90ES which costs a call $10,000/£6,000. But Sony have now announced a more affordable option the VPL-HW30ES, but it will still set you back around $4,626/2,937 according to an article on What Hi-Fi.

It has a dynamic lamp control system which is claimed offers images which are three times brighter than the VPL-VW90ES. The projector uses lighter 3D active shutter glasses that are claimed by Sony provide a more comfortable viewing experience.

The new Sony projector can also turn your 2D content into 3D material, and is set to hit the market sometime next month. It might be a cheaper alternative from Sony but it is still a lot of money to fork out, and you still need to purchase extra glasses if all the family wants to watch. If money was no object would you purchase a 3D projector?
