iSival MP720B1 - Creating Ultra Wide Screen Projection

I have done one Eyefinity 3 monitor setup for games before.  However monitors have a bezel that you have to deal with when playing games, watching movies, and anything media related.  HD projectors offer a great solution and the iSival MP720B1 does a good job on a budget and an awesome small form factor.  Check out the videos to see some of my demonstrations of ultra wide setups that can deliver huge resolutions.

I tried both 3200 x 900 resolution and 4032 x 1080.  They both look great!

Pretty amazing results right?   Thanks to Sival Instrument's Richard Quan for providing the second projector for these demonstrations.  There's so much more that I could do with two projectors but that will have to do for now.  Enjoy!

Note:  I will be without technology (pc and internet) for a few weeks so I won't be able to answer questions until early May.  Adios!

I have not yet pushed the limits of the iSival MP720B1 HD projector. However here are a few videos that show how big this sucker can get.

Lenovo S10-3T and Crystal HD

For those looking to increase your HD video performance with the S10-3T you could try to install the Crystal HD card.  However I have found out that there's not that much improvement as of right now.  Maybe in the future the Crystal HD will prove to increase performance by a lot.  The following three videos demonstrate the Crystal HD and the capabilities of the S10-3T.  This took one day of my life.
