    What is the cheapest or smallest digitally convergeable CRT projector?

    I'm pretty sure the smallest is the Barco Cine 6, but can't afford one of them.

    Basically I'm looking for an affordable possible replacement for my D600, or at least something I can use for a couple months over the summer.

    Cheers guys.

    How big is the Sony VPH 1271QM? Does it have digital convergence?

    I know there's a few owners on here, any help appreciated.

    Rick,

    Depends on what you mean by small....

    Barco7XX, Seleco 4/5/8xx are smallishboxes.
    NEC6/9 is better and shallower but probably slightly longer and wider.
    Sony12xx are bigger.
    Electohome ECP's were pretty small but tall as I recall.

    By small I mean preferably not much bigger than the D600 that you gave me. I know that you can get shorter CRT machines, slightly bulkier machines would not be a problem, it's the length that's the biggest problem.

    I may be looking to buy one at sometime in the summer possibly. Depends on my financial and working situation. I basically require summit 'smallish' that can display 2-3 resolutions without requiring reconverging like the 600 does. Good machine still when I have time to use it at home.

    I have a 1271QM (but is knackered)

    I wouldn't say it was that big compared some CRT projectors, but I have never seen a BD700 to compare it to.

    It has digital convergance with 21 point zone adjustment.

    Hi,

    An Electrohome projector might fit your requirements (e.g. ecp 3/4xxx series) as they are pretty short due to the electronics and power supplies being mounted underneath the lens/crt assembly. These models mentioned have digital convergence but they are probably not too common in the UK and that might be an issue for spares and support.

    A barco 600 would fit inside a Sony1271.
    The replacement for the 600 was the 700 series look for one of those. The really small chaps were the DWIN projectors but there are very few in the uk.
    Sony D50 was pretty small too.

    Not cheap either. I've worked on one in a rear projection rig (Paradigm), and it only had RGBHV input, not that that would really bother me.

    Any chance of hiring a PJ around the summer time?

    I can't believe that there are two DWIN rear pro units in the UK but may be. I was called into Paradigm to help set up a unit about a year ago. The customer needed help reversing the scans and installing the projector in the correct possition to asses how it was going to look.
    I'm sure I saw you there too.

    I'm pretty sure that it's the same one. I don't recall seeing you at Paradigm, it might have been that my old boss Chris was there though. I remmember meeting you at Pinewood for the Barco show though.:D

    I'll do some research on the 700's, RE possible hire over summer, maybe earlier.

    Cheers
