ViewSonic projects 3D aims with the VPD31 processor box

ViewSonic has brought the VPD31 processor box to the 3D party - a device that will make 3D content playable on its range of 3D ready DLP Link 3D/120Hz projectors.

The box, combined with the PDG-250 3D glasses, means that 3D TV, PlayStation 3 and 3D Blu-ray movies can be beamed by the projectors as it boasts dual HDMI v1.4a inputs and one HDMI v1.3 output to enable a scalable 3D projection "without losing visual quality".

Trevor Holt, European product manager of projectors at ViewSonic said: "After a slow start in 2010, Ovum has predicted that 2011 will see sales of 3D hardware rapidly grow as prices drop due to increased competition.

"Unlike a television, the VPD31 and projector solution is scalable allowing users to enlarge a 3D image to any size they choose without losing any quality at all. Following its pre-view at CES, the solution has been given great reviews from the gaming community making it one of the most sought after 3D solutions on the market."

The glasses have a range of 12 metres, and a battery life of 44 hours and feature ambient light resistance.

The package costs £229 and is available now.
