Upgrade your NEC XG or Runco 991 projector by adding two HDMI 1.3 inputs with gamma correction and infrared remote control.  Don't be stuck watching DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray at only 480p. Add digital HDCP-compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs allowing you to watch hi-def content at up to 1080p resolution.

Widescreen Review Magazine uses Moome HDMI cards in their reference theaters featuring Sony G90 and Runco 1200 CRT projectors.  "We love our 9-inch CRT projectors, even though we have our pick of the leading edge D-ILA, SXRD, and DLP projectors." - Gary Reber, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher, Widescreen Review

The XG-FULLHD card allows you easily add digital devices such as HD-DVD/Blu-Ray players, PS3, Xbox360, Satellite/Cable HDTV set-top boxes, and HTPCs with HDMI graphic cards (to name a few) to your NEC XG/Runco 991 projector. Simply plug the card into your projector, your DVI/HDMI devices into the card, and watch. Installation takes 5 minutes.

This product is a culmination of everything Moome has learnt over years of building DVI/HDMI input cards for CRT projectors. It is by far the highest end card he has yet to offer with new features such as: Two 100% HDMI 1.3 compliant inputs for Deep Colour support, better discrete 12bit D/A converters, faster 1GHz output buffer, and better op-amps for the best image quality possible. This is the last HDMI input card you will ever buy for your NEC XG CRT projector.

Supply is limited and tends to sell out fast as this high-end product for the discriminating videophile is only built in small batches. This is the last HDMI input card you will ever buy for your NEC XG CRT projector.

Reviews/Testimonials

"I received my XG-FULLHD HDMI card today and I love it! The picture is much better than what I was seeing previously. I was using a Sony BD300 and VP30 video processor and was never very happy with it. Now I have the VP30 plugged directly into the new HDMI card and the picture is sensational. Couldn't believe how easy it was to install and setup. Thanks Moome!!" - Rob

"...very quick install/setup and first impressions are that the XG-FULLHD card is noticeably sharper than my previous setup..." - Lance

"There is no doubt the XG-FULLHD card creates an image that is better than the previous DVI card...colors are more natural, test patterns are sharper. Is the card worth it? That would depend on your budget, and what you expect out of this product. For myself, I say yes it's worth it...the PQ has taken a step forward, and just looks 'right'. This card IS a step up in all areas of image reproduction." - KennyG

"The color rendition of the Moome [XG-FULLHD] card is really quite impressive. The first thing that hit me when going back to the DVI card was how much better the HDMI card did to create a vividly lifelike image with more subtle gradients." - JArseneau

"... it is a true work of art from Moome, amazing in every way possible ... with the new NEC XG HDMI Moome card and my DVDO VP50pro video processor outputting 4:2:2 YPbPr HDMI I have a image that has improved in nearly every manner (See here for screenshots) ... the crispness of the image has improved a lot as well, the image is naturally sharper vs the older DVI card which looks slightly edgy in comparison ... color resolution and naturalness has improved so much it is unbelievable, I am so thankful to be able to get this card for my XG, it was worth every penny and more! I just can't get over home much of a improvement this card really is, the best way to describe it is like someone took a hold of a knob on your system labelled bandwidth and cranked it out the roof, the natural crispness and smoothness of the image is amazing, the contrast ratio aspects of the image may be the biggest improvement of all. I am now going to be giddy every time I sit down to do reviews and watch films. Thank You Moome! You are a true master sir!" - Gary

"Thanks Moome for a great product and speedy customer service! What a damned nice guy!" - Tacky

"The image is very sharp and the colours wonderfully vibrant and realistic! The black levels are outstanding!! Its certainly given this XG135 a few more good years without missing out on the latest Hi def formats." - Alan

"Finally installed my Moome XG-FULLHD card into my XG135LC .All sources fed through a VP50 and the results are stunning. Had the projector calibrated by ISF tech. Worth every cent." - Andrew John

"Installation could not have been more simple which was a relieve to me. As a matter of fact, I had more trouble running my 20’ HDMI cable through the attic than I did installing this card. It literally is a matter of removing two screws and replacing the blank panel with this card. The Moome card looked physically like it was always in the XG. That is to say, it doesn’t look like a mod or add on but rather an OEM piece. The first thing I noticed which Gary Murrell had mentioned in his review was that the loud image sync click from the XG was gone! I copied my 1080i entry from input A of the projector to a new entry at input C and aside from some convergence work it worked very smoothly. I figured that I am about as familiar with the Fifth Element on Blu Ray as any other title I have so that was the first thing I popped in the Panasonic BD30 player. My split second first impression of the image was that it was noticeably sharper than my previous setup and I was pretty sure that I was seeing a vividness of color that was not present before. Previous user reviews of this card kept coming to mind and I have to say that I agree with most everything that has been said here. For instance, a comment regarding less noise in the image really made sense to me as that was my impression as well. An overall smoothness which cleaned up the image a good bit without softening fine details in the slightest. I switched back and forth between my sources (Blu Ray, HD-DVD, HD Cable) and never once did the card miss a beat or the projector click like it used to when changing sources." - Dropzone7
