Carl Zeiss powerdomeVELVET Brings 2, 500, 000:1 Contrast Ratio To DLP Projection

zeiss-velvet-projector.jpgThe new Carl Zeiss powerdomeVELVET planetarium projector puts all projectors to shame. Designed for use in planetarium's (duh!) and other setups that require full dome projection the powerdomeVELVET utilizes Texas Instruments' DLP technology to produce an internal 30-bit color depth and a sick 2, 500, 000:1 contrast ratio. Of course, absolute blacks are needed in a planetarium to render recreations of distant stars visible. We don't even want to know how much this new Carl Zeiss masterpiece will cost, but expect expensive when it hits the shelves of Best Buy in early 2009.
