Panasonic will, eventually, at some point, launch its first 3D home theater projector


It's time for Infocomm 2011 which means a slew of new projectors (sadly, most are destined for boardrooms and auditoriums), and Panasonic is finally ready to announce its projectors will included in its 3D push. Unfortunately, there's no actual projector to speak of yet so all this news can do is get the world ready for a successor to 2009's PT-AE4000 (pictured above). Plasmas and LCDs are nice, but when you need a big image -- and can't afford a 152-inch display -- only a projector will do. If it follows the trend we should be hearing more in September, just in time for CEDIA, but for now the only details are that it's 3D and will be released this year.
