The new digital projector model will be available in March.
ViewSonic has unveiled the latest addition to its projector lineup. The upcoming PX Series PX800HD Ultra-Short Throw Projector is geared toward home entertainment use.
"We're launching ViewSonic's new PX Series of projectors with the PX800HD which allows us to set the standard for reasonably-priced, fully featured entertainment projectors," said Young Bae, senior product manager of projectors for ViewSonic Americas. "Because the PX800HD is an ultra-short throw projector, it offers versatility of placement in the home. The PX800HD eliminates the need for a dedicated home entertainment area, so video content can be viewed in smaller settings. We packed the PX800HD with a number of color and sound technologies like ViewSonic's proprietary SuperColor and SonicExpert, to ensure super sharp and crisp color reproduction, and enhanced sound."
The PX800HD features a native 1080p Full HD resolution along with 2000 lumens of brightness and Rec.709 color accuracy. Likewise, the device offers SuperColor™ technology for true-to-life color performance and includes two integrated 10W speakers that use SonicExpert sound technology. In addition, the product's ultra-short throw lens is capable of projecting a 100 to 120 inch image with the unit placed just inches from the wall. Connectivity options include RGB, HDMI, Video, S-Video, RS232, Component, USB, and 12V trigger, providing compatibility with a variety of sources.
To complement the projector, ViewSonic also offers its line of BrilliantColorPanel™ projection screens, offering LED TV-like picture quality. The BCP screens are specifically designed for ultra-short throw projectors, allowing them to enhance contrast and diffuse high ambient light.
ViewSonic's new PX800HD Ultra-Short Throw Projector will be available in March for an MSRP of $1,299.
