Epson BrightLink 595Wi Interactive WXGA 3LCD Projector
September 22, 2014
Epson's interactive projectors have always been strong contenders for best of breed, so it's no surprise that the new Epson BrightLink 595Wi Interactive WXGA 3LCD Projector ($2,399) is both impressive and innovative. In addition to having all the features that made the Epson BrightLink485Wi our Editors' Choice-including automatic calibration and the ability to use the interactive feature with any image source-it can also turn whatever you use for a screen into a touch screen, functionally equivalent to the one on your smartphone or touch-screen PC. That makes the 595Wi the new top-of-the-line model for Epson and also our new Editors' Choice for ultra-short-throw interactive projectors. Like the Epson 485Wi and the HitachiBZ-1, which is our Editors' Choice for a portable ultra-short-throw interactive projector, the 595Wi is built around three LCD chips. That gives it the advantage over DLP-based projectors of being guaranteed not to show rainbow artifacts (flashes of red, green, and blue), which some people find annoying.

LG 55EC9300
September 16, 2014
Last year, I reviewed the LG 55EA9800, a 55-inch curved OLEDHDTV. To my utter shock, it managed to produce perfectly dark black, a holy grail of HDTV testing and the only way a screen can have the "infinite contrast ratio" (technically inaccurate, but we'll talk about that later) some manufacturers have claimed in the past. I've been waiting for another OLED HDTV to test to see if this was some mysterious fluke or if the technology really can consistently perform that way. LG has now released the 55EC9300, a redesigned, WebOS-based follow-up model. Well, OLED is now two for two, and the 55EC9300 offers one of the best pictures I've ever tested in the lab. That image quality will cost you $6,999.99, though, so while OLED is now confirmed to be the future of HDTVs, it still isn't feasible for most consumers today.

A New Stereoscopic (3D) Media Database and Teaching Strategy for Use in Large-Lecture Introductory Geoscience Courses
August 01, 2014
FULL TEXT ABSTRACT Stereoscopic displays provide geoscience instructors with the ability to teach students the fundamental, and inherently threedimensional, components of landforms and landscapes; yet the prevalence of such displays in higher education is limited. As costs of these systems continue to decrease, more instructors may wish to take advantage of stereoscopic display systems in their classroom. This paper serves as a guide for instructors who wish to install and use their own stereoscopic display systems using a case study conducted at the University of Kansas. The operational aspects covered include: creating stereo images, displaying stereoscopic images, selecting a stereoscopic display, and developing a new teaching strategy that incorporates the stereo system into the classroom environment. Additionally, a new database of stereoscopic media is provided to help promote the implementation of stereoscopic displays and free and open distribution of 3D teaching material. © 2014 National Association of Geoscience Teachers.
