Light wallet:
Marantz has debuted its HD “digital light projector” which should be of great interest to some galleries and light-artists. Contrast ratio: 2600:1 (double what could previously be done, and as good as any cathode monitor). Colour fidelity: as good as HDTV. Images size: wall-size +. Drawback: the 1,280 x 720 pixel image sounds a bit small. Price? Ouch. About £20,000, when the dollar-pound rate falls to near 2:1 this summer.
