Is there any part of the display market that doesn't feel the long arm of LCD technology? In the direct-view arena, CRT and plasma are both getting
the squeeze, and now the front projector market is dominated by 3LCD gear. Research firm Pacific Media Associates reports that more than 75-percent of the "pro AV" projector market (schools, universities, corporations and high-end homes) went to 3LCD in 2007. Those figures are a real stick
in the eye to the DLP crowd, but give 3LCD credit where it's due. Front projectors with 3LCD offer reasonable pricing, good picture quality and useful features (the linked article singles out lens shift) -- other than the bulb swaps that accompany every projector, what's not to like?
