Marantz HDMI 1.3 projector

The luxury electronics maker Marantz has released a new version of its flagship DLP projector, the VP11. The VP11S1BL is similar in many regards to its predecessor, but has been upgraded to support HDMI 1.3, which more than doubles bandwidth, and enables DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD sound (used by HD movie players) with external AV receivers.

Marantz has specifically chosen to add Deep Color, which enables color gamuts beyond the standard 24-bit sRGB and YCbCR modes on most TVs. Other features of the projector include a 0.95 dot pitch, 6,500:1 contrast, and what Marantz will only call an "improved 6x color wheel." The standard projector costs $20,000; a version with longer throw costs $22,000.
