Multi-system, multi-voltage TV & Projectors

by AAA.CCC / November 20, 2006 10:37 PM PST

Hello there

I am posted internationally on a regular basis for 3-4 years at a time. I am thinking of buying a 50" HD (720p/1080p/1080i) Plasma and/or a DLP projector. My questions are:

1. Can you recommend brands that will handle all international signals (PAL/SECAM/NTSC or do I care with HD) and voltages?
2. Will a voltage transformer be sufficient to take care of the issue? What about the frequency?

When you say projector,,

What comes to mind is a front projector.
But as I read your post I think you are asking about a Rear Projection TV, or plasma.
You can get Panasonic Industrial Plasma sets that handle different voltages and are multi format. John

Thanks for your reply. My choice was Panasonic so I will check out the industrial grade TV..

I guess my post was confusing - I am ALSO considering a projector. I may end up buying one or the other or both.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
