    look at this, amazing:

    http://www.optomausa.com/documents/HD504 Final_1.doc

    maybe I should wait and buy the forthcoming HD504 instead of RD50.

    so the old Sagem is called HD501 (there is still some connection between these two -- lol -- :D )

    the most important news is:

    sounds good..................
    :clap:

    I think its an updated version of the HD3 chip & i believe its has half the mirors of the HD2+ The HD3 is found in some samsungs the mirrors are aranged in a diamond pattern & each mirror is used for two seperate pixels by switching between them very quickly some people prefer the look of the HD3 as it is said it delivers a more film like image.However the majority seem to prefer the sharper image of the HD3
    Time will tell if it can beat the HD2+ .
    There is another chip in the pipeline the xHD3 that is a higher resolution than the HD3
    the HD3 has a 720 vertical resolution & the xHD3 i think has a 1081 ver res ? it will
    still have less mirrors than a HD2+ of course if the xHD3 turns out to have a better picture than the HD2 sets i imagine it will cost more.
    By the way Hifiboom i've posted the photos of the RD50 you asked for on to the
    DLP tvs & home Theatre thread if want me to email the original they are around 3MB
    each :devil:

    interesting:
    if you look here onto page 2:
    Carl Zeiss Producer sheet

    http://www.zeiss.de/C12567BE00473A92/EmbedTitelIntern/Imagebroschuereenglish/$File/image_engl.pdf

    xHD3/xHD4 -> the best
    HD2/HD2+ -> high demand
    HD3/4 -> cost-effective

    i read they will use HD4 on the new Optoma, so it will be not as good as the RD50..

    :cool:

    The new Optoma will be optomised for ITV playback and will not be able to display BBC 1 & 2 or sky moviess with out the picture jumping all over the place. It can be partially cured by spending at least a £1000 on an external divice. The manual is beign distributed on a single sided 3.5' floppy and consitis of a maximum of 4 pages telling you how to plug it in and change channels.

    The remote control will be an optional extra and wont be avialible when then set is released. It will be availible 4 months after the set has been on the market for a fee of £100.

    If you have any problems with the new set Optoma advise you not to call them as they wont answer your calls back nor will they have anyone with technical knowledge working for this company. In fact they will always be in meetings and if you are lucky to get hold of a memeber of staff they wont have a clue what your talking about.
