JVC offers 3D projector for home theater use

JVC offers 3D projector for home theater use JVC has offered up a new product for anyone who is looking to go out of their way to make their home theater system a little bit different. The company has unveiled its first (and claims the world's first) home 3D projector, built for use specifically with home theater systems. The JVC DLA-RS2 model is intended for people who like an illusion of multi-dimensional movies without the need for those infamous glasses.
JVC uses D-ILA projection and stereoscopic video processing to provide the 3D effect from "compatible content" without the need for the specialized glasses. The projector can produce Full HD (1080p) content and uses second-generation SENSIO 3D technology. It is noted as managing an image contrast ratio of 30000:1.

Obviously "3D content" is required for this projector to be any way special, but of course it will also look great when connected to your DVD-Video, Blu-ray, console etc. hardware. It will debut sometime in 2009 and currently has no price details.

Does anyone know how its going to manage "without the need for the specialized glasses" as all the other SENSIO 3D technology requires you to wear glasses ??

This article needs some clarification.

I already have this projector in my setup (upgraded from a Sony VPL-VW50) and it can't do 3D on its own.

When the 3D capability was demonstrated at the Fall 2008 EHX show, they needed two of these projectors being fed the signals from a Sensio media server which incorporated the 3D decoder.

Since one of the JVC's alone can be considered a high-end purchase (MSRP - $7995), then 2 of these projectors plus the Sensio server/decoder will be out of reach for all but a select few.

Sensio 3d supports 2D, and 3D via polarization, alternating fields (shutter, like iMax), anamorphic (those cheezy 2 color glasses), and any future 3d format.

So yes they support specs-free as vaporware, so don't hold your breath.
