Here’s an upconversion for video enthusiasts. Marantz America has introduced upgraded version of its VP-11S1 front projector, which now features HDMI 1.3 inputs along with the standard’s Deep Color and 12-bit color depth technologies, the company says.

The upgraded VP-11S1 is now shipping at an MSRP that remains at $19,999. In addition, the company will also support consumers who have already purchased the previous version of the projector through an upgrade plan, which it will release pricing details of shortly.
