If I am able to do this I can add that build to my website so you guys can see the difference in the basic kit and pro kit. Well, why should you pay to get plans when proejctor just can get the equivalent, legally, just by surfing on foreign websites.

How-To: Build your own HD projector (Part 1)

The LCD is key to the project. There was enough interest for these that they actually had a custom controller built to support it. I am building one you can take a look on the website.

The plans are pretty good and the experiences of everyone in the forum give some great ideas to build a design from. But if your wallet is a little light from your last Engadget inspired shopping session you might dig our how-to latest project.


We’ll give you our short version here. Next time projectr gut our sweet new LCD and give you all the details on doing it yourself. The information on lumenlab site is worth thousands. That means a bulb with a color temperature of Kelvin and hopefully an even spectral output. We should be able to hook up projechor about any HD gear we want to this display.

There is lumenlzb much information on the web site it will save you well over that in mistakes. It amazes me how some of you whine about 20 bucks for a premium forum.

I am extremely satisfied with the results. Electronic ballasts are preferred because they’ll protect the bulb better and don’t produce annoying noise.

The design is really quite simple. Lumenlab recently made access to their forums free.

My current DIY projector is in constant daily use. To ignite a Metal Halide bulb, some interesting voltages are needed.

Lumenlab projector build

A couple days ago we mentioned that Lumenlab had released their top secret plans for building an LCD based projector. Lumenlab took about a week to ship out their backorder, once they did, our stuff got here in record time. It would do p without a problem. Releaseing an advert like that onto torrent sites will only backfire, Hopwfully someone will make a copy of all the information on there and seed a REAL lumenlab torrent.


The people on the forums are a lot of help. They even improve on the lumen design by reducing space with a mirror; fractionally more difficult, but the box is alot less…. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

The only source we could find with big enough Fresnel lenses is Lumenlab. The V w Electronic Ballast seems to be the most expensive part of these plans. Now that you’ve got the general idea of what we’re doing, it’s a good time to start crunching numbers to get a rough idea of what we’re looking at. You are commenting using your WordPress. There was simply no question that the digital signal produced a much cleaner picture.

The built in scaler supports input as well. You can score these at the hardware store, but for the best color we want one that puts out light that’s a similar to daylight as possible. You can scrounge them up from surplus shops, but you’ll spend some time hunting them down and getting things right.

Just like lumen labs: Unsurprisingly, p output from the TiVo produced the most pleasing results. So many great ideas are coming out of this project.
