  • Christie's latest 4K projector sports 60 fps output, six-figure price tag (eyes-on)

    Christie Digital Systems unveils first 60 Hz 4K projectors with sky

    When a 48 frames-per-second version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released, some viewers questioned whether high frame rates necessarily translate to a better viewing experience. Whether or not you embrace this trend, it’s clearly not going away. Case in point: today, Christie Digital Systems introduced two new 4K projectors capable of 60 fps — a “world’s first,” according to the manufacturer. Unveiled on the NAB show floor, the 35,000-lumen and 25,000-lumen models display extremely crisp and bright images — big-budget car commercials and surfing footage basically pop off the screen.

    The projectors are available for pre-order now, so it’ll likely be quite some time before they begin showing up in your neighborhood cineplex. Their price tags ($125,000 for the 25,000-lumen model and $161,000 for the 35,000-lumen D4K3560), not to mention their bulky 250+ pound bodies, make them destined for state-of-the-art cinemas rather than home theaters. If you do manage to squeeze one of these giants into your den, we’d be more than willing to drop in to catch a flick or two. Take a look at the 25,000-lumen D4K2560 in action in our eyes-on video after the break — it looks incredibly sharp and vibrant, despite the reduced brightness output.

  • Best Buy shipping HTC One for T-Mobile starting April 19th, priced at $250

    Best Buy to sell HTC One for TMobile starting April 19th, priced at $250

    We knew good and well that HTC’s One would be arriving on T-Mobile USA at some point, and for those uninterested in tying themselves to Sprint or AT&T, here’s some news that matters: Best Buy has just confirmed to us that it’ll begin shipping T-Mobile’s flavor of the aforementioned phone on April 19th. The “Glacier Silver” kit will be on sale for as little at $249.99 on a two-year deal, whereas you’ll be forced to pay $699.99 for the blessing of having no strings attached. Granted, T-Mob’s Simple Choice suggests that no contracts will be involved, but if you take the bait on the subsidized price, you’ll either be hanging with the carrier long enough to pay it off, or you’ll be forking out the difference on the way to some other operator.
