Looking to finally convert that guest bedroom into an in-home movie theater this spring? If so, you're in luck as Epson has announced the 3LCD Powerlite Home Cinema 750HD projector here at CES 2013. The home theater unit offers 2D and 3D 720p capabilities for viewing at up to 120 inches or larger. Touting up to 3,000 lumens of both color and white brightness, the 750HD sports Bright 3D Drive tech and Easy-Slide image correction to power viewing sessions from DVD / Blu-ray players, cable boxes, gaming consoles, PC, Apple devices and smartphones -- without the need for an additional format converter. Of course, HDMI and USB connections are here as well alongside five color modes for adapting the picture to each viewing environment. Epson's RF 3D glasses are also along for the ride that boasts 40 hours of viewing or up to three hours after a three-minute quick charge. The Home Cinema 750HD is set to arrive in March, hitting wallets up for $899 in order to procure one.

No one ever said that 3D would come cheaply, and even BenQ
seems to be tacking quite the premium onto its fancy W7000. It's being hailed as the company's first 1080p HD home cinema projector, touting 2,000 lumens of brightness, a 50,000:1 contrast ratio, frame interpolation and support for all HDMI 1.4a 3D signal formats. It's also compliant to the native Rec. 709 color gamut, one of the highest HD video standards for professional-grade home projectors. For certification junkies, there's also an ISFccc badge, and the H+V lens shift technology provides up to 125 percent vertical and 40 percent horizontal lens shift adjustment with zero vertical offset. Interested consumers can pick one up later this quarter in North America for $3,999; catch the full press release after the break.

We've finally received the official US information (press release after the break) about Sony's latest addition to its line of SXRD projectors, the VPL-HW30ES
. The biggest news here is the price, and this one is rocking a $3,699 MSRP. Slipping under the $3,000 barrier really would have made our eyes pop, but as it stands it's still an impressive array of tech for the dollar. Otherwise the details remain the same as we'd heard yesterday, although the press release acknowledges that it will be avialable in a bundle with two pairs of 3D glasses and the IR sync transmitter VPL-HW30AES. Those accessories will otherwise run $129 for the glasses and $79 for the IR transmitter, no word on a bundle price.

While it's possible they may one day all be replaced by pico projectors
, so-called "mobile projectors" are still a mainstay for a good deal of presentation-delivering users out there, and NEC has just introduced two new models for their consideration. Weighing in at a luggable 3.5 pounds apiece, the new NP41 and NP64 DLP projectors each boast a standard 1024 x 768 resolution, along with a 1,600:1 contrast ratio, automatic keystone correction, VGA, RCA, and S-video inputs, and a promised 3,500 hours of lamp life in the projector's eco mode. The only difference between the two, it seems, is a brighter 3,000 lumens on the NP64, compared to 2,300 on the NP41. You'll also have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the NP41, which will land in October for $999, while the NP61 will start shipping in September for $1,399.

We had a chance to see Samsung's not-exactly-diminutive SP-P400
projector at CES this year, but it seems the time has finally come for Sammy to release it into the wild. Reportedly, this portable beamer is now available in South Korea (alongside the SP-D300 business projector) for around $800, which it would totally be worth if it fit easily within the confines of a front pocket. At 145- x 145- x 64-millimeters, we'd have to think about it. Heavily.

Delta Electronics will soon begin volume shipments of full HD projectors, according to company CEO Yancey Hai.
He expects its business outlook for the second half of 2008 to remain “guided positive”.
Hai said orders for Delta’s power supply products from segments such as desktops, notebooks and LCD TVs have remained strong, with order visibility extending at least three months.

Delta’s projector will deliver a full HP 1080P resolution and brightness of 6,000 lumens.
