content to 3D and delivers the same resolution as the 27-inch monitor. It has
image projection sizes ranging from 20 to 300 inches, and it supports multiple
3D technologies, including Blu-ray 3D, DLP 3D, Nvidia’s 3DTV play and 3D-compatible

to 4:3 and can connect via its two HDMI ports, fully digital DVI-D port and
