Not all 3D projectors are created equal. Now that 3D is more popular than ever, a lot of 3D televisions and projectors have sprouted left and right promising that they are 3D ready. The truth is not all of these devices are truly 3D ready. Most of them can only render one of the four types of 3D formats. (For a more geeky discussion on 3d formats, please check out this article.)
Epson’s new EH TW8100, on the other hand, is truly 3D ready. It has the capability to automatically convert 2D videos to 3D. You can easily play 2D movies you currently own and view them in glorious 3D. This is a truly amazing feature! You don’t need to buy expensive 3D converters. All you have to do is play the usual 2D movie, wear your 3D glasses, sit back, and enjoy.

Of course, it’s not limited to playing movies! You can connect your PS3 or Xbox 360 and play your favorite games in 3D as well. Besides automatic 2D to 3D conversion, EH TW8100 also allows you to adjust the depth level depending on your preference.
Another 3D home theater project that Epson recently launched is the EH-TW6100. Both of these projectors are capable of playing full HD 1080p videos. This is done through their one-of-a-kind Epson 480 hertz frame refresh rate. This means that they are twice as fast as other 3D projectors. Because of this, the “black out time” between 3D images frames are greatly minimized, providing you with clearer and crispier 3D images.
I got the chance to personally try both of the projectors during the Harmony Co-existence Plant Tour and Product Launchlast Tuesday at Lipa, Batangas. Both of the projectors were connected to a PS3, which served as the Blu-ray player.
While wearing the glasses, I can totally feel myself immersed into the world of The Amazing Spider-Man. I wish I got to try it while playing Dead Space 3 as I believe this game would look great in 3D.
I believe the EH-TW8100 is a real winner when it comes to rendering bright and crisp 3D images. It can truly turn your home into a 3D utopia.
Now, let me just share some of the photos that I took during the tour and the actual launch. Thanks to my blogger friend Len Cristobal for sending me to the event (Please check out her blog here) and to Epson for pampering us with information and fun activities. 🙂
I learned so much about Epson’s history and was impressed with their innovation. I even got to watch as the printers and projectors were being made in the assembly lines.
