HDI 3D Launches Laser Driven Projector Line

Posted by Carl on 11th August 2011 in Consumer Electronics

For the past few years the projection video industry has been diligently working on projection products that incorporate laser-based light engines.

Approximately a year ago Explore3DTV reported that N.H.-based Laser Light Engines was working on the development of this technology and it had partnered with IMAX to receive funding.

In the meantime however, Los Gatos, Calif.-based HDI 3D was also working on laser-based projection technologies and on Aug. 10 the company announced that it has begun to manufacture its line of laser-driven 2D/3D Switchable Dynamic Video Projectors. 

Using Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) display chips in conjunction with its laser technologies the company says its 3D projectors can produce 360 frames per second (fps) per eye with 1080p content, and that its’ technologies deliver a color gamut potential up to 200 percent of NTSC specifications. 

HDI says the first pre-production run of 100, made in the USA “Cube” projectors will be available by Feb. 2012 and five other models will be made available in late 2012.

The company adds the projectors are designed to work with its companion line of Laser Silver Screens, which will be offered in 120-, 200- and 300-inch diagonal versions. HDI claims the 120-inch screen produces 70 Foot Lamberts in 2D and 35 Foot Lamberts in 3D, while the 200- and 300-inch screens offer 35 Foot Lamberts in 2D and 18 Foot Lamberts in 3D respectively.

Additionally, the company claims that it has eliminated the viewer fatigue effects of 3D, including migraines, dizziness, nausea and motion sickness through its designs that include light-weight, polarized glasses.
