Planar Announces 3-Chip DLP Projector

Oops, despite some of the interpretations of Planar’s intent, Planar introduced a new home theater projector after all. But it’s not a Vidikron. This is called Viper.

Planar says the Viper was specifically designed for screen sizes larger than 110 inches. It is specified at 1280 x 720 with 10,000:1 contrasts ratio, and 2,000 lumens.

The Viper has “intelligent lens shift” that prevents lens shift outside the image area, and it has an RS-232 connection.

The Planar Viper is available for immediate shipping but you have to be a dealer to learn the pricing, apparently.
