Vivitek announced its 2D-to-3D D5 series of DLP projectors that can convert existing 2D content and convert images into 3D pictures, without the use of an external box. The new models include the D512-3D, D536-3D and D538W-3D projectors.
The first in Vivitek's line of projectors to utilize this built-in conversion technology, the D5 series takes standard DVD and Blu-ray content (via HDMI) and switches it from 2D to 3D. The three projectors can also display 3D content from 720p/1080i at 50/60Hz and 1080p at 24Hz from 3D Blu-ray players or other 3D sources, such as cable or satellite boxes.
The D5 series projectors feature DLP and BrilliantColor technologies for bright, digital images. Add in high-efficiency lamps that last up to 4,000 hours (in economy mode), and the three projectors are an amazing lightweight, presentation solution.
“This latest technology represents a breakthrough for Vivitek,” said Christopher Yang, senior product manager at Vivitek. “With the 2D to 3D built-in conversion, consumers are able to enjoy 3D content without needing to purchase or set-up an external box. These projectors offer great image quality and a variety of connections for multiple video sources. We've packed a lot of features and technologies into the D512-3D, D536-3D and D538W-3D projectors, all within a compact design.”
