Home theater fans that have multiple 3D sources like cable boxes, Blu-ray players and game consoles might have the need for a converter box that can handle those multiple inputs and shoot them out to a projector. If you are one of these folks a new offering from Optoma called the 3D-XL will ship in December.
The product is called the 3D-XL and the thing is compatible with HDMI 1.4a inputs and supports multiple 3D devices. It can switch between 2D and 3D inputs and only works with DLP projectors. Those projectors don't have to be the Optoma brand, any DLP projector will work.
The 3D-XL supports 1080p 3D content and uses passive 3D glasses. It ships with one pair of 3D glasses and additional pairs of glasses are about $90. I wondering the glasses that we typically recycle after seeing a 3D flick in the theater will work for the device. The 3D-XL Converter box will sell for $499 at Amazon.
