ViewSonic Unveils New LED Hybrid Laser and Series Projectors at InfoComm

Expands Its Robust Projector Line With LED Laser and 1080p for Pro AV Market

LAS VEGAS, NV, Jun 13, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Today at InfoComm 2012 (booth #C7142), ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, expands its professional projector series with the new commercially oriented Pro8300, while previewing its LED hybrid laser technology in the Pro9000.

Pro9000 Professional AV LED Hybrid Laser Projector Being previewed for the first time at InfoComm, ViewSonic will be demonstrating its new hybrid laser and LED Full HD Pro9000 projector. With this breakthrough technology, the LED light and lasers combine to create a single light source, resulting in vibrant and rich display color that far exceeds that of a normal mercury light projector. In addition to being environmentally friendly, this mercury-free technology also delivers a longer operation life of 20,000+ hours. Paired with dual HDMI ports and its convenient lamp-free design, the Pro9000 is ideal for home cinema environments and Pro-AV installations. The Pro9000 is expected to be available in Q3 2012.

"Laser hybrid illumination technology has changed the way that projectors are able to manipulate light and images. This new model is lamp-free for an even lower total cost of ownership. As a result, users get a higher quality picture and ultra high contrast ratio, making projectors with this technology ideal for home entertainment, professional audio-video, corporate or education use," said Roger Chien, product manager for ViewSonic.

Pro8300 Professional 1080p Commercial Grade Projector The ideal choice for business data projection, this Full HD 1080p commercial grade DLP(R) projector is packed with convenient features and options. The Pro8300 incorporates BrilliantColor(TM) Technology with a powerful Pixelworks(R) 10-bit image processor for vivid colors, while its 1920x1080 native resolution, 3,000 ANSI lumens and a 4,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio produce razor sharp images that shine in virtually any ambient light environment. Paired with a wide 1.5X optical zoom adjustment for more than 36% additional zooming capability and integrated speakers, the Pro8300 delivers stunning audio and visual experience.

For the ultimate in ease-of-use and convenience, the Pro8300 has a multitude of connectivity options including dual HDMI, dual VGA, and dual computer VGA inputs. As a result, multiple presenters can easily connect an assortment of multimedia devices to the projector simultaneously -- from laptops and tablets to smartphones and more. Paired with auto keystone correction, a filter-less design, and energy-saving mode, the Pro8300 provides for zero maintenance, while delivering a lower TCO and longer product life.

The Pro8300 will be available this month in North and Latin America for an ESP of $869. The Pro8300 comes standard with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, in addition to a 1-year lamp warranty and Express Exchange(R) Service*.

"Full HD resolution has become somewhat of a standard feature across consumer home and cinema entertainment projectors; however, finding hi-def capabilities in a quality yet affordable projector offering for businesses is far less common," continued Chien. "Our Pro8300 breaks tradition by bringing precise standalone 1080p projection to business owners and corporations at a price that's within reach for any company."
