3D gallery projection

Today I did some tests with SAC faculty member Chris McNamara.

He is going to be setting up a gallery installation that requires 3 3D projection systems, so we have been looking at finding the sweet spot for price & performance when buying 6 projectors.

Playback of his 3D material was from 2 Technovision DV75N solid state media players.  They connect via ethernet and achieve rock solid sync, which is necessary for 3D material.

I've also used the AKMAN AMA 1080P, but their sync is only close - within a frame or two.

Today we tested 2 Viewsonic PJD6531w projectors.  They are 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 3000 lumens.  They handled his 1080p material very well and looked pretty good.  The best part?  They cost under $800.
They have 2 VGA inputs with loop through for video and audio,as well as composite & S video, and and HDMI inputs.

Chris is going to see if he can get the gallery to spend the money for projectors that are 3500 lumens - and cost about $1400 each.  Quite a premium for 500 lumens, as all the other features are comparable.  These are the Mitsubishi WD570.

Well, we'll see what happens.
