Vivitek is only a month away from shipping their H1080FD Full HD projector.

Though more typically targeted at businesses small and large, Vivitek is hoping to make a splash in the consumer market by offering 1080p picture quality at a competitive price point. “One of our key opportunities in the next six months is stealing a lot of share in 1080p at the opening price points” explains Vivitek’s newest general manager Rick Nguyen.

“We're pleased to introduce a true 1080p home-theater projector that the general consumer can enjoy,” said Christopher Yang, Vivitek’s senior project manager during a visit with Twice. “By combining the latest digital technologies in a portable and economical package, people can enjoy amazing HD content without compromises.”

The projector features two HDMI ports as well as component, composite and S-video inputs, an 1800 lumen brightness and a 5000 to 1 contrast ratio.
