Leica, which I think is now owned by Panasonic (don’t quote me on that), introduced its first DLP projector at the Photokina show, the Leica Pradovit D-1200. Specs include a 1920×1080 resolution (16:10 aspect ratio), 2,000 lumen brightness, 2,500:1 contrast ratio and DVI, HDMI and RCA outputs. Lieca has seen it fit to toss in a ‘eco mode’ which reduces the lumens to 1,400 and increases lamp life from 3,000 to 4,000 hours.
The Leica Pradovit D-1200 is set to launch this May in Japan and will cost about $12,700.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
