Don't know if that will work but it is google translated.

3x1080 DLP chips with laser light source. Expected price guesses???

Did you see the picture?! it makes it look as big as a car due to the perspective.

That ain't the perspective, Greg! The thing is nearly 8 feet long! 2370 510 630mm... That's like what, 8'x1.5'x2' or so, right? It's a tank!

Did you see the diagram? It looks like it's designed for a super-short throw...

The projection distance of just 60cm at 100 inches, 90cm has been achieved in the 150-inch big screen projection.


Crazy!

This is the part the scares me about laser:

At 7000 lumens that projector will be pushing a little over 100 ft-L on that 150" screen..... Cool Cool Cool

WOW... The 1.5' X 2' isn't that bad but that 8' is kinda large. Here's another angle pic.




I wonder if the size is for the power supplies to run the laser's.

It would suck if you had to run a separate 400 amp service to your house just for your projector..... Laughing

Did someone say...BROWNOUT !!!!!!!!!

It would definitely need a Big Isolation Transformer.

LOL! Laughing Embarassed

I scanned it really quick...holy sh*t!

That thing puts CRT bulk to shame!

Although...it wouldn't be that hard to build that projector into a stage with some nice cooling to boot rejecting heat behind the screen wall.

Expected price?

My guess is it is over $100,000.

My guess is the size would be required because of the Chillers to keep it cool... but I am not to familiar with that application.

I'm sure the contrast ratio will be the bomb for every idiot out there. And at 8 feet long I'd want to triple stack something. Mmm, Wendy's.

I'm more curious if anyone see's the rainbow with this and the Laservues. Lasers are infamous for refraction.
