3D hasn’t just been tapping on the glass of the future – it’s banging metal gauntlets on the living room windows of everyone. With James Cameron’s Avatar making its long-awaited debut next week, and the many movies over the last year that have made their 3D leap from big screen to smaller screen, the fundamental experience of 3D continues to make its march into your homes.

A company called Optoma has just announced the release of the HD66, the company’s first-ever 3D-ready HD home theater projector. This is the first product that’s being pitched as the perfect solution not only for 3-D home entertainment, but also specifically for gaming use.

Folks, the doorbell is thundering.

What’s often been the anchor that prevents the average home entertainment-phile from moving into the projector swimming pool is the price point for projectors. Options, depending on resolutions, available contrast settings and more in the past meant spending $2,500 to $8,000 for a higher-end product. Optoma is leading the way to true 3D home theater and gaming satisfaction with a 5-pound device, that features a 4000:1 contrast ratio for only $699.

If you’ve ever thought about “having a larger television” and have wanted not only to get the best bang for your buck, but also the LARGEST SCREEN for your buck, Optoma is providing a true and literal game-changer now.

Are you interested in the prospect of having a projector as the newest addition to your home theater/living room? Discuss below!

  1. We are actually looking at replacing the Optoma projector we already have.
    I LOVE watching big films on a big screen! We have a 9′ screen (with an electric motor to raise and lower it).

    We already have been watching some 3-D movies on the big screen, but with field-sequential glasses. Sadly, those don’t seem to have taken off. They give a far superior 3-D experience to the 2-coloured models of glasses.

    Didn’t I read somewhere that Cameron would not release Avatar in 3-D on DVD/blueray?

    The perfect solution, for a few months at least.

  3. Wait this is 700 bucks??? I’m sold whats the catch?

  4. Any links to the reviews?

  5. Fenix says: ” I’m sold whats the catch?”

    A living room with a >20′ depth of field. 790′s right flat panel technology will soon make the glasses obsolete. Of course for some of us even that won’t matter…

  6. I just worked with some stereoscopic/Real 3D material and we had to redo most of our Depth Grading when moving from small screen to a huge cinema screen (24m width). The quality of the effect hangs on the ratio of screen width to audience distance and how well the viewing technique can divide the two pictures. So essentially you would have to depth grade and render your movie twice to accomodate small screen viewers too if you want to make a 3d DVD/Blu Ray release.

    I’m curious as to how exactly this beamer can provide that L/R division as clean as a finely calibrated cinema setup with two projectors and a special, rounded screen.

  7. Does light difuse the picture as did the old projection TV’s where the room had tobe almost totally dark?
