Industry's Longest-Selling Ultraportable Projector Now Supports XGA Resolution

BEAVERTON, Ore.-- June 1, 1999--Affordable, portable projection for XGA computers is now available from Lightware Inc., a leading manufacturer of portable-projection technology.

Lightware has increased the resolution of its VP800 projector, now supporting XGA with intelligent compression. The new VP800 Plus weighs in at less than 9.5 pounds and is priced at $1,995. Shipping since December 1996, the VP800 has been on the market longer than any other projector and continues to be in high demand because of its reliability, ease of use and low price.

With the additional resolution, the VP800 Plus can support the latest generation of performance laptop computers at a world-beating price. The new projector delivers unprecedented value to anyone who needs to deliver computer-generated information in face-to-face settings. The VP800 Plus weighs in at 9.3 pounds and delivers multimedia sound and imagery at 300 lumens.

"Few technology products these days have the life span of the VP800," said Lightware President Al Patz. "Fewer still are in such high demand as the VP800. It's a testament to the quality of the original design. By adding XGA compatibility to the projector without raising the price, Lightware offers a value and performance combination that is unsurpassed in the industry."

The VP800 Plus is compatible with PCs, Macs, VCRs and DVD players. It has two 3-watt speakers for stereo on the go and a convenient built-in handle for secure portability. The VP800 Plus uses inexpensive, instant-on halogen lamps and has a built-in spare bulb and quick changer so there is never a disruption while in use.
