LG BS275 & BX275 Projectors Released

Two new projectors aimed at the business market have been released by LG and their names are BS275 and BX275. In both cases, the contrast ratio is 2200 to 1 and they have 2700 ANSI lumens. The area where they are different is in the resolution offered on them. The BS275 comes with a resolution of 800×600, while the BX275 has a resolution of 1024×768.

If you’re looking for a projector to use in a classroom or a business room, these could do quite well. They don’t weigh much and they have connectivity options like composite, RGB and audio ports. The price of these models isn’t known right now.


Digital Projection dVision 30-1080p LED Projector Released

Announced a couple of months ago, the dVision 30-1080p LED projector from Digital Projection was launched officially and it comes with stats like a contrast ratio of 7500 to 1, a Full HD resolution of 1920×1080, 700 ANSI lumens and a lamp system with LEDs.

The LED lamps are starting to appear more and more in the market of larger venue projectors and their advantage is the fact that it isn’t toxic, it makes less heat and consumes a smaller amount of energy. The one disadvantage that might make some reconsider is the fact that they’re not as bright as the halogen based models. The dVision 30-1080p projector is officially launched but we have no word on pricing right now.

With 50 lumens, this is much better than what the initial models offered (just 8). The size is 4.7 by 1.2 by 2.7 inches and it has around half a pound. To get the most brightness, it has bright LEDs, though it also means that it needs a cooling fan to keep it going.
