Projectors In Bits
I initially bought an Epson projector ( EMP-1700 ) on Ebay, thinking it was a single AMLCD model. It wasn’t. But it was a compact 3LCD XGA resolution jobbie, and it was only £40. Later I bought a broken Philips XG20 for £25 for some further bits.
My idea was to be able to use the 3LCD module as the display source, but it is bulky, and the clever prism is heavy. I have since made progress with using a DLP light engine, the big brother of the kind implemented in the little Samsung Pico. These can go up to 1080p – I’ll be visiting this solution sometime in the future.
From this carnage, I managed to harvest a few lenses, mirrors and dichroic mirrors.
I have now taken things to bits, time to crack on and put them together.
