Mitsubishi shows the HC5000 full HD (1,920x1,080px) LCD projector at the IFA 2006 and says the HC5000 will sell for 4,000 Euro (~$5,133).
This is I think the way to go 1080p for me. The prices for large full HD Plasma TVs or LCD TVs will stay high for a while. In the meantime full HD home cinema projectors become affordable. The projection image size also benefits more from the higher resolution.
The Mitsubishi HC5000 features a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, a brightness of 1,000 lumens, 19dBA (Lamp low mode) and a 50” - 300" image size. The HC5000 features the C2 Fine LCD panel and Silicon Optix Reon VX chip.
