ViewSonic PJ1060 -- Color XGA LCD Projector 2000 Lumens and Glowing

WALNUT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 15, 1999--Adding a new benchmark to its expanding Office Theater(TM) Projector Series, ViewSonic(R) Corporation today announced the PJ1060 color XGA LCD projector. Because of its flexibility in providing the brightness of 2000 lumens, plus digital keystone correction, picture-in-picture and a full three year warranty, the PJ1060 is an excellent product for corporate presentations as well as for the installation and rental markets.

"The brightness, uniformity and high white point on the PJ1060 elevate it to competition with much higher priced projectors," noted Lawren Markle, ViewSonic product manager. "The digital keystone correction also sets it apart and insures that no matter what the venue, mounted on the ceiling or on a table top, or how often the unit is moved, the picture can be squared up perfectly," stated Markle. "Finally, the addition of Microlens(R) technology and the picture-in-picture capability, puts the PJ1060 in a class by itself," concluded Markle.

At only 13.5 pounds, the PJ1060 provides 1024x768 native resolution, with scaling up to 1280x1024. The PJ1060 allows for two computer sources and one video source to be connected simultaneously as well as an RGB output terminal for daisy-chained displays or presenter monitor connections. There are two PIP window sizes and four positions. The remote is infrared with laser pointer and mouse emulation. The PJ1060 supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM video signals and has a low noise output of 42dB. Automatic self-tuning syncs the PJ1060 to computer sources for optimal focus without any user adjustment needed.

Other features of the PJ1060 include plug and play operation, image freeze and zoom functions on the remote control, image reversing functions for more flexibility in installation, stereo audio output, front height adjustment and serial control available for automated presentations. The PJ1060 includes a soft carrying case and is fully backed by ViewSonic's 3-year warranty on non-consumable parts and labor, plus 90-day protection for the lamp. The PJ1060 is available for MSRP $6,995, wherever ViewSonic products are sold. For more information, contact Ray Neria in the ViewSonic advanced product group at 909.444.8644.
