If you fancy the idea of a 3D projector (and let's face it, who doesn't?) but are put off by the rather punitive price (and let's face it, who isn't?), then help is at hand from Optoma.
The projector specialist's stand at ISE in Amsterdam features the GT720, a ‘3D ready' projector with short-throw lens, a weight of just 2.3kg, and a price tag of a mere £600.
Of course, it's (slightly) too good to be true. The ‘ready' part of ‘3D ready' means you'll have to spend another £250 or so on the 3D XL, a box that converts the signal from your 3D sources (Blu-ray, PS3, Sky and so on) into the ‘frame-sequential' standard projectors require.
That £250 includes a pair of active-shutter 3D glasses, and additional pairs are £99 a pop.
Optoma will be showing the GT720 at the Sound and Vision Show in Bristol between February 25th and 27th.
