    EDIT: projector has been SOLD.
    For Sale: my old Electrohome "ECP Graphics" projector. This actually is the model number: there's no "number" in it. This is version of the ECP 4000 that Electrohome produced for "rapid setup". It uses 7" CRTs, all three of which fire through a single lens dichroic "prism-thingie". Inputs are RGBVH, RGBS, composite video. 380 lumens peak light output with image. 3 knob easy Scheimpflug optical focus adjustment. Up to 80 KHz horizontal refresh, 80 MHz video bandwidth, so will display HDTV. Looks really good with progressive-scan DVD or with my RCA DTC-100.
    Weight 109 lbs, 41" wide by 27" deep by 11" high.
    User-friendly setup of geometry and convergence via menus operated via the remote.
    Complete with 2 remotes, homebrew ceiling mount, operators manual and service manual (with complete schematics).
    Unit was owned by US Govt., then serviced by Hi-Rez about 3 years ago. These don't have odometers for the CRTs but guesstimate about 3500-4000 hours on CRTs. Have original wood crate from Hi-Rez. I am guessing this would be better as a local sale so you can come by for a demo. I have upgraded to an Electrohome Marquee 8501LC.
    Asking $1,000, shipping extra. I have scanned some of the pages from the owners and service manuals into .pdf format and I can email them to you. These pages show unit pictures, how to set the projector up, convergence and white balance settings. Price includes a Key Digital KD-CTC1 YPrPb to VGA transcoder so you can plug a progressive-scan DVD player directly into the projector.
    ++++++++++
    A special deal for those that can pick-up the unit in person. I'll throw in a Da-Lite "Model C" manual pulldown screen in "video spectra 1.5" material (1.5 gain). Size 60" by 80". The model C is a beefier version of the well-known model B. I really cannot ship the screen due to not having a box for it.
    +++++++++++
    Summary: you get the projector, manuals, remote, mount, and a transcoder for $1000 plus shipping. If you pick up you also get a screen. This is not the greatest projector (My Marquee is) but may serve as a good introductory projector for those interested in exploring HD FPTV.
    Please contact me via email as threads like this tend to get buried quickly.
