Manchester Show 2011: Optoma brings down the cost of 3D projection

Optoma HD33

Optoma says its bringing down the cost of Full HD 3D projection with its stylish new HD33 DLP projector.

Retailing at £1350, the HD33 comes with one pair of rechargeable 3D glasses which use wireless RF transmission, rather than the more usual IR (infra-red) system, for more stable syncing. Additional pairs of glasses are £80 each.

The projector is powered by Optoma's PureEngine technology, including PureMotion4 and PureD, designed to create clearer, sharper pictures. Claimed contrast ratio is 10,000:1 and brightness is 1800 ANSI Lumens.

There's a full range of digital and analogue inputs, including two HDMI inputs with 1.4a 3D support.
