Ultra-Short Throw Projector for Home Entertainment

Press Release  |  Jan 5, 2017

New PX800HD is Part of a New Line of Projectors Featuring High Brightness and Rec.709 for Big Picture Content at Home

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 5, 2017) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, introduces the PX800HD,, a new addition to its award-winning line of digital projectors and part of the upcoming PX Series. Built for home entertainment applications, the PX800HD is a bright, fully-loaded, ultra-short throw projector priced at $1,299.00.

The new PX800HD features 2000 lumens of brightness and Rec.709 color accuracy, as well as SuperColor™ technology for true-to-life color performance. It comes with integrated speakers that boast SonicExpert® sound technology. The ultra-short throw lens projects a 100- to 120-inch image with the placement of the projector just inches from the wall. Ideal for media rooms, family and living rooms, the ViewSonic® PX800HD utilizes a sleek design without compromising big image entertainment.

With a wide range of connectivity options, including RGB, HDMI, Video, S-Video, RS232, Component, USB and 12V trigger, among others, the PX800HD can easily share content from a number of video sources. The native 1080p Full HD resolution and two built-in 10W speakers provides an all-in-one solution for video-based entertainment use in just about any room in a house. Because of the ultra-short throw lens, the ViewSonic PX800HD eliminates issues like placement difficulties and shadows.

Paired with ViewSonic’s BrilliantColorPanel™ projection screens, the PX800HD provides LED TV-like picture quality, but on a larger scale. BCP screens are specifically designed for ultra-short throw projectors, while enhancing contrast and diffusing high ambient light.

“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 ViewSonic PX800HD has an MRSP of $1,299.00 and is scheduled to be available in March 2017.
