World’s first 3D Projector Adapter

London, September 24th, 2010 – Optoma today announce that amazing, fully immersive, life-size 3D projection is now possible in the home. The world’s first 3D projector adapter, the Optoma 3D-XL adapts existing DLP® projectors enabling them to display 3D.

Compatible with 3D broadcast signals such as Sky 3D in the UK; 3D Blu-ray players and 3D games from the Sony® PS3 the 3D-XL simply connects between a 3D source and a DLP projector. The huge, greater than 100”, 3D projected images in the home provide a fantastically immersive experience that is just not possible with the small screen of a 3D TV and amazingly the total cost of this jaw-dropping 3D experience is a fraction of the cost of 3D TVs!

The 3D-XL is ideal for use with the Optoma HD67 projector for the home but can also be used with any of the 14 compatible models in the Optoma range. This makes the 3D-XL, when paired with one of the Optoma Professional AV projector models, an ideal solution for large screen Sky 3D viewing in pubs or bars.

Included with the 3D-XL is a pair of the new stylish and light weight Optoma ZD201 3D glasses.

Optoma will demonstrate the 3D-XL to the press at events throughout Europe beginning at the end of October and will be available to buy from January. Please visit the Optoma website for further details and to register for updates on this product.
