The ViewSonic Pro8520HD offers 5000 Lumens at 1080p.
ViewSonic has just added two projectors to its lineup, the Pro8520HD and the Pro8600. While both models have application in the commercial space with their filter-less design, Eco-mode, HDMI, Wireless, and LAN connectivity, and DLP design, the Pro8520HD is undoubtedly the serious home theater option.
The Pro8520HD features a 10-bit video processor, a 1080p native resolution, and a 5000 Lumens brightness, that when combined with ViewSonic's BrilliantColor technology makes for a high-end projector, but at much more accessible price than even ViewSonic's own Pro9000.
In addition, Eco-mode is advertised as able to extend bulb life by 50 percent and up to 3,000 hours with only a 20 percent drop in brightness. Several other aspects of ViewSonic's commercial applications should ensure the reliability, color quality, and maintenance of the unit to the degree that the investment will last for years and years.
The Pro8520HD has been set at $2099.00 and can be ordered here.
