Projector videos from CES 2012

Last month Projector People attended the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The exhibit was a sensory circus with 50-ft passive 3D displays, flashing lights and audio blasting from every other booth.

For us, CES is a time to connect with representatives of the brands we sell on ProjectorPeople.com. We have the opportunity to learn about upcoming releases and new features. We also get to pass on valuable feedback from you, our customers and fellow projector fans, about changes you’d like to see in future products. Like us, our manufacturers highly value your feedback.

We were able to shoot a few videos during our time in Vegas. See below for updates from Vivitek, Optoma and InFocus. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter profiles for continued information on new releases, projector news and price drops.
