PCと3Dプロジェクターの接続 –Full HD 3D Projector for HTPC–

Full HD 3DでPCと接続する場合、現状ではnvidiaのVGAが必要です。この場合プロジェクターがdual-link DVIを持っていればnividia 3D VISIONで対応できる可能性があります。しかし仮にDual-link DVIプロジェクターの場合でも、nividia 3D VISIONのIRトランスミッターではメガネとの交信が問題なので、QuadroのRFトランスミッターの方が現実的ですが、これもまた未知数です。

プロジェクターがHDMIの場合はNVIDIA 3DTVPlay待ちです。3DTVPlayはドライバレベルで既に発売されているVGAのHDMI1.4対応を可能にし、表示装置の3Dメガネを使うことができるとされています。その一方GTX460では公式にハードウエアレベルでのHDMI1.4対応を謳っています。GF104コア以降のものが対応している可能性がありますが、ドライバ対応だけでいいのか、ハードウエアまで1.4対応が必要なのか未だに不透明です。 AMD Radeonに関してはOpen Stereo 3Dで対応予定ですが、次世代GPUが必要と思われます。またIntelはSandy Bridgeでブルーレイ3Dに対応する予定です。

The top-of-the-line VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater projector;
VPL-VW1000ES,new SXRD panel,Iris3 technology,on sale this December at a price it hopes is “under $30,000.”, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 2,000 ANSI lumens,

4K “upscaler” that dramatically enhances all content - SD or HD, 2D or 3D - allowing viewers to see 4K playback,can also display Full HD 3D movies, as well as 2D and 3D anamorphic films. For Full 4K 3D, integrated IR transmitter drives the projector’s TDG-PJ1 active shutter 3D glasses,

Sony Pictures has more than 60 theatrical releases shot in native 4K resolution, but the means of actually transferring all that data to consumers simply doesn’t exist yet. Sony reps claim the company is in talks with the Blu-ray Disc Association to iron out a standard compression scheme for squeezing 4K movies onto discs.

DLA-F110E: JVC announced the DLA-F110E D-ILA 3D projector designed for custom installations including high-end conference rooms and DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) applications, delivering 1080p Full HD imagery.1920 x 1080 Native Resolution
, 30,000:1 ,1,700 Lumen, available through limited distribution in late September 2011 for $7,495.




Simulated 4K (3840×2160)

Full HD→detect the correlation among the pixels→generate new pixels based on the results of detection→4K
Full HD + subframe full HD( e-shift) = 4K image


The projector receives a 2k image. It up-scales the image to 4k. The image is then split into two 2k images. One 2k image is flashed on the screen, then the second image is flashed on the screen. The shifting of the pixels on the second image is done optically. The image is passed through a lens that when given an electrical charge bends the light, changing the focal point. It worked very well. With your nose to the screen you did not see pixels.

 JVC will clearly shake up the market with their introduction of e-shift technology. The idea is to use a single FHD imager to create a QFHD image. They do this by spatially shifting the 4 slightly different FHD images to create a QFHD image at the screen. We will have more details on the operation in Large Display Report (LDR), but I can tell you this works very well in creating a QFHD image.

4K playback is for 2D source only, 3D content is projected at full HD resolution.
All 2D signals are automatically up-converted 4K precision.


Just means affordable advanced electrical wobulation. ref#1#2#3 (IMO by HAL)

#1 Wobulation

#2 Wobulation: solid pic or shaky science?

If you haven’t heard of “wobulation” just yet, chances are you will before the year is up. No, it’s not the theme to another “Dance Dance Revolution” video-game, it’s a method used to trick the human eye into viewing a higher resolution. Take a look at the simulated example on the right. The bottom picture illustrates the “screen door” effect of a high-def set. The top picture represents the same image using “wobulation.”


So what the heck is it and where did it come from? Ironically, the idea came from HP’s inkjet technologies. HP determined that printer output resolutions could be increased by adding ink droplets over top of each other. Will Allen of HP’s Digital Technology and Products group applied the concept to light and “BAM!”, wobulation was born.

There are more interesting details on wobulation at, but I’m more interested in you think of the technology. I haven’t seen an example of it yet, and the “purist” in me says that 720p is 720p, not something more. However, if the picture quality can be increased by projecting two overlapping light-points, it might have some merit. What do you think?

#3 JVC shows off projectors with 4K precision, but not quite 4K pixels

” The scheme is not far off from the old wobulation technology featured in some “1080p” DLPs once upon a time, but this time there are no moving parts as it’s all being done electronically. Shown off with an HD resolution source the upscaled image was still impressively sharp to us, even up close, while it also handles native 4K feed. While JVC may not be winning on raw pixel count, what it does have is a serious price advantage. Sony indicated its hardware would be available for “less than $25,000″ but the top of the line JVC has an MSRP of just $12k, while the cheaper model will be $7,999 when they all ship in November. Check out the press release after the break and images in the gallery for details, including those so rarely seen native contrast ratio measurements.”

Impression of  CEDIA attendants
Sony VW1000ES, DPI, JVC RS65を比較しての感想(引用)

Saw sony vw1000Es, everything in DPI booth and lengthy showing in JVC booth.
RS65 was our favorite. 11ft wide Stewart Reflection 170. Blu-ray demos including movies and some video footage shot at 4k, downcoverted to blu-ray, then internally scaled by projector to 4k. Sharpness: excellent. Convergence: excellent. Colors:excellent. Brightness: excellent. Native Contrast 120,000:1
Saw it with e-shift on and off (service menu option for now). Expected it to soften image…not true. Image was awesome. IMO, best of show. Convergence was awesome, and fine tuning by 1/16th pixel seems nice. Brightness was great on 11ft wide Stewart Reflection 170. Plenty o’ Lumens. According to engineers, changed internal dichroic (sp?) filters and lumens should be much better than this years models. Now rated at 1200 lumens for 55 and 65 and 1300 for 45. 3D seemed much better than the x30/RS45 demo. Anamorphic features are gimmicky but do work well. 3 memories for zoom, lens shift which should be useful to some CIH folks. Takes 15-30sec to switch modes.
I’ve found my next projector. No RS55 on display. (official) X90R X70R X30

Polarised dual projector system was demonstrated(2009)



D-ILA 3D System(2009)

This high-resolution D-ILA 3D system utilises two DLA-HD950 full HD projectors dedicated for 3D applications.
System configuration
・Polarising method: circular polarisation
・Projector: DLA-HD950
・Screen: 120-inch silver screen
・Others: Imaging system and synchroniser

How th D-ILA system works

Imaged displayed separated by two projectors , one image each for the left and right eyes, which are projected onto a single screen. These projected images can then be viewd as three dimentional images by wearing a pair of special polarising glasses. The use of binocular disparity images make projected content look three dimensional with the foreground appearing much closer and the background inversed into the scene, providing depth perception not possible wit conventional 2D image

Impression Summary (IFA2010)

Epson on avatar movie i can only say that contrast is very impressive but color accuracy was terrible, to much red and some pink ,think for event as IFA epson must calibrated their machine so , for me personaly look not natural end of it.

Mitsubishi with no name bested Epson in colors and movie like image,black was also werry good, 3d in mitsu was poor worst of all pj but 2d was outstanding.

Best 3d pictures show for my opinion sony and samsung, samsung little ovesaturated in colors but wery sharp picture, sony more natural but with SXRD soft film like image. (from Berlin to AVSF)

By far and away the huge, dual LCOS projector LG for $15K(?) produced the largest size, better, brighter most realistic 3D image. There is no competition to it. It is in a class by itself.

The new JVC is a nice unit and has very good picture detail and 3D quality. The three new 3D units from JVC are all rated at 1300 lumens.

Sony has a beautiful demo room but the 3D image of their new 3D model is chock full of ghosting and the 3D image with shutter glasses on is dim…//…3D performance was the worse of those I have mentioned and perhaps even the worse I have seen here at Cedia. I cannot express after the buildup about Sony’s new projector how disappointing it was to see it under what was ideal demo conditions.

The new reflective (they are not calling it LCOS) Epson unit has a very rich and deep color image. It puts out 1200 lumens. It think in 2D it may have richer and deeper color than the new JVC’s but they are close. The two new Epson’s will sell for $4K to $7K. The new 3D JVC’s will sell for $5K to $12K. Since JVC has 3D now (shipping next month or so) and Epson won’t have 3D till January or later then the nod has to go to JVC.

Runco’s proprietary CSV™ (Constant Stereoscopic Video) architecture, the first home theater brand to license RealD’s Processing Package. Runco CSV is based on the human brain and eye physiology (called stereopsis) and mirrors it precisely to create perceived depth with a constant HD image to each eye. Runco’s 3Dimension Series pair passive glasses with a design unique to Runco formulated for precise stereo separation, called PreciseLight™.Runco’s Copenhagen design is inspired by both classic and modern Danish architecture and design. The D-73d ships with the new Runco 3Dimension processing system, which includes Runco’s upgraded, award-winning Digital High-Definition (DHD) external video processor. The D-73d 3Dimension Processing system not only provides exceptional scaling and processing with the DHD4, but also decoding and playback of 3D content in compliance with the HDMI 1.4 standards. Just like the human brain makes sense of three-dimensional content, the 3Dimension processor ensures that the whole solution works as an integrated system.

Runco’s D-73d will be available Q4 2010 with an MSRP of $49,995. Optional lenses, CineWide, CineWide™ with AutoScope™, and additional 3D accessories, such as replacement glasses or premium or prescription glasses, are additional costs. (Excerpt from press release)

Italian luxury
SIM2’s C3X LUMIS 3D projector looks set to be top dog in the world of home theater projectors for some time to come - at least until someone else comes along with something superior. You will find a handful of jargon such as 3X Dark Chip 4, Hyper-Color, and dual-projector 3D in the LUMIS 3D, and in layman’s terms, it will offer the most realistic color and image reproduction possible, although the price to pay would be a whopping $79,999. Yes sir, you can pick up your jaw from the floor now as this dual-projector model will bring reference passive 3D to small professional theaters and high-end custom home cinemas. Not only that, motorized filters for 2D and 3D content also eliminate compromises in image quality and color rendition. You would do well for your marriage to sit down and have a long discussion with the missus before purchasing one of these puppies!

Best 3D Demos at CEDIA Expo

By Electric House

September 28, 2010 | by Robert Archer, CEDIA Expo 2010 in Atlanta was all about 3D.

Among the 3D players at CEDIA Expo were Digital Projection International (DPI), LG, JVC, Panasonic, Runco, Samsung, SIM2, Sony, Toshiba, and Wolf Cinema. The format dominated the talk on the showfloor with people recognizing the improvements that have been made to the technology.  With high-performance video manufacturers joining the 3D fray, it’s time for Hollywood to support the millions of dollars invested by these companies by releasing 3D Blu-ray discs to ensure the format’s success. Working with limited content resources, these manufacturers did the best they could to show off the improvements they have made to the 3D format. Several of the product demos looked fantastic.




家電業界のFull HD 3DプロジェクターへのファーストアダプターはLG, SONY, MITSUBISHIのSXRD陣営、SHRAP, SUMSUNG のDLP陣営に分かれてきたようです。おおむねマットスクリーンで使用可能な時分割方式を採用していますが、LGはこの中ではやや特殊な偏光方式を採用し、偏光に乱れのないシルバースクリーンが必要です。上に別項にも記載していますが、IDF参加者の印象ではSumsungやSonyの印象がいいようです。CEDIAでの3DデモではLGが頭抜けていて、JVCも高い評価です。価格相応という事でしょうか。やはり明るさが決定的な評価の要素となっているようです。2DではEPSONが注目機となっています。後発メーカーは発売までまだ間があるので、追い込んでくるものと思われます。





DLA-X series JVC DLA-XシリーズがCEDIAで発表されました。FullHD 3D対応で950と比べると輝度もコントラストも上がってます。しかし1300lmという輝度はアクティブシャッターグラスでどうかは微妙です。コントラストが上昇しているので期待していいかもしれません。シネスコでは内臓Vストレッチでanamorphicを使えば更に輝度は上がるはずですが、3Dでうまく動作するかどうかは不明です。外付けでiScan等を使う場合もプロセッサーが3Dに対応していなくてはいけません。Lens memoryはないようです。基本性能が上がっているので、2D目的でも十分ですが、最上位X-9は価格が100万円を超えています。漆黒環境が条件ですが、DLA-HD750,950でも200インチでまぶしく感じる映像もあるくらいなので、Xseriesは輝度的には申し分ない性能を持っています。今後の他社の動向も注目ですが、X-3などの下位機種でも2Dでは十分な性能に思えます。

Panasonic and Epson

Panasonic, EPSONも3D機を開発中と思われますが、コアデバイスに何を採用するか楽しみです。NVIDIAと共同して3Dのキャンペーンを打ったPanasonicやデータプロジェクターで大きなシェアを持つEPSONが3D対応Projectorを出すなら、PC親和性の高い製品になるとも思われますが、はたしてどうでしょか。今回の展示の中ではSHARPのプロトタイプXV-Z17000がDVI端子を持ってるのが印象的です。2DですがEPSONのレンズメモリーのデモも秀逸です。業務機ではILMが供給していますが、EPSONがILMかどうか不明です。

PC device

対してPC業界、NVIDIA, AMD, Intelがこれらをどう考えるかも今後の見所です。3D対応ではNVIDIAが3D VISIONで一人先行している状況です。DVIベースの3D VISIONに加え、HDMIでの3DTV Playでこれら家電3Dプロジェクターに対応する必要があります。3DTV PlayはPCモニター用の120Hz 映像をHDMI用のフレームパッキング信号に変換し3DTVのフレームシーケンシャル表示方式に対応させるドライバです。ソースとしては1080p30Hzが上限で、ブルーレイ収録映画は24Hzが多いのでFullHDの信号を家電に送ることができます。

AMDは”open”な3D対応GPU, すなわち互換性の高いデバイスを目指しています。IntelのSandy BridgeのオンダイGPUはblu-ray 3Dに対応しており、残ったLynnfield 45nmプロセスを32nmに置き換える使命を持っていますが、チップセットも同時に対応する必要があります。来年の今頃はノートPCでもFull HD 3Dが珍しくないはずです。



NVIDA 3D VISION 対応のプロジェクター(2010.09.08)

PCでの再生ではdual HD streamなので、HD音声と3D映像の分離出力が可能です。従ってAVアンプもHDMI1.3対応のものでHD音声がデコードでき、HDMI1.4対応のものに買い換える必要がないというメリットがあります。


Electronic Shows in the future

PC業界、家電業界ともに、2011Q1には3D対応様式を確定してくるものと思われます。ブルーレイ3Dのタイトルも少なく、IDF(9/13),CEDIA(9/22), CEATEC(10/5), CES(2011/1/6)などのイベントを楽しみながら年を越してもよさそうです。むしろ商品を買うより楽しいかもしれません。




Comments after CEDIA

IFA, SEDIAを終えての感想です。

質の高い3D映像と2D映像を同時に得ることは難しいようです。ハイエンド3Dではpassive3Dが主流で、偏光に対応したスクリーンを使用しています。業界標準のStewartがdual screenを用意した事にもそれが象徴されています。MSRP $20000から$100000の世界です。

World’s first 3D Projector Adapter/  Optoma 3D-XL

London, October 2010 – Optoma announce the first European demonstrations of the 3D-XL., a fully immersive, life-size 3D projection adapter for the home. The world’s first 3D projector adapter, the Optoma 3D-XL adapts existing DLP® projectors to enable them to display 3D content at home.

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 any 3D Ready DLP® projector. Featuring 2 x HDMI 1.4a connections, the 3D-XL allows two separate sources to be connected to it simultaneously, providing simple switching between, for example, a PS3 3D game and Sky3D broadcasts.

Justin Halls, Head of Product Management at Optoma Europe commented, “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 TV’s!”

The 3D-XL is ideal for use with the any of the 14 compatible models in the Optoma range and additionally with all DLP® Link 3D compatible projectors such as those from Acer and Benq.

Included with the 3D-XL is a pair of the new stylish and lightweight second generation Optoma ZD201 3D glasses, designed specifically for the 3D-XL to give the highest image quality possible today.

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 2011. Please visit the Optoma website for further details and to register for updates on this product and to enquire about details of the roadshow.
