Acer releases two new 3D-ready projectors, we’re waiting for Avatar on Blu-ray
One of the first things I wrote for this section was a looong post about the current gen tech for watching 3D movies in the comfort of your home. I’ll quickly revisit the topic with two new 3D-ready projectors from Acer.
The two projectors – the Acer H5360 and the Acer X1261 – rely on NVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology that uses LCD shutter glasses to view 3D content. If you don’t know what those are, check out the previous post.
The Acer H5260 has 720p resolution (1280 x 720, 16:9 aspect) and has an HDMI port as well as a standard VGA port. The MSRP is 699 US dollars (516 euro).
The Acer X1261 does XGA resolution only (1024 x 768, 4:3 aspect) and doesn’t have an HDMI port, instead it relies on composite, component or S video input (the H5260 has those too). The cost of this one is expected to be 579 US dollars (430 euro).
Both projectors work as usual for 2D content, but require either a compatible graphic card on the computer or a 3D-enabled Blu-ray player.
