IRVINE, CALIF. —
Mitsubishi Digital Electric America said its 100S - 3D starter pack, which includes a 3D adapter that enables certain 3D-capable DLP rear-projection TVs to display 3D Blu-ray Disc material, is now compatible with all Mitsubishi 3D Home Cinema DLP TVs and Samsung 3D DLP HDTVs.
The $449 suggested retail price pack includes two pairs of active-shutter 3D glasses, an emitter for 3D glasses, a Disney Blu-ray 3D showcase disc, 3D signal adapter, 3D signal adapter remote control and an HDMI cable.
The Mitsubishi 3D adapter converts most types of 3D signals into a signal that is compatible with older model 3D-ready Mitsubishi and Samsung 3D capable DLP TVs.
This means most new 3D Blu-ray players, 3D game consoles, and 3D cable and satellite boxes can be connected to one of these later-model Mitsubishi or Samsung 3D-capable DLP TVs using the adapter to view images in stereoscopic 3D.
New models of Mitsubishi 3D Home Cinema DLP TVs don’t require the adapter to playback 3D material conforming to the 3D Bluray specifications (although they do require active shutter 3D glasses for each viewer), and Samsung no longer sells DLP rear-projection TVs.
