BEAVERTON, ORE. - Sept. 17, 2003 - PLUS Vision Corporation of America, the first manufacturer to introduce a two-pound projector, announced today the newest addition to its two-pound line of DLP projectors. The V-1100Z has a 1:1.2 zoom lens and enables flexible mobile presentations.
The new XGA (1024x768) resolution PLUS V-1100Z projector offers 1000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a contrast ratio of 2000:1, the highest contrast ratio in the industry for a projector this size. The PLUS V-1100Z also introduces new noise reduction techniques to reduce audible noise.
Approximately the size of a daily planner, the PLUS V-1100Z utilizes Texas Instruments' next generation Digital Light Processing(tm) technology coupled with PLUS's proprietary technology to produce high-contrast images with crisp image clarity for any presentation setting.
"More than a year and a half ago, PLUS introduced the world's first two-pound projector. The new V-1100Z is our fourth addition to this very important mobile projector category," said S. Mark Hand, vice president, sales and marketing. "We believe it is our critical mission to continually provide advancements to the miniaturization of projection technology."
Designed to enable presentations anytime, anywhere, the PLUS V-1100Z includes four-way digital keystone correction (both vertical and horizontal), and a short-focus lens. Users can easily project large-screen presentations, even in small spaces.
The V-1100Z includes a Digital Video Interface (DVI), which allows for digital-to-digital image reproduction for vivid video and data image quality. Additionally, the V-1100Z also supports the latest video standards including 480p, 780p and 1080i High Definition imaging. Picture-in-picture (PIP) functionality and digital zoom round out the many multimedia features.
The V-1100Z ships with all necessary data, video and audio cables, a full-function remote control and soft carrying case, fulfilling every requirement for effective presentations.
The new V-1100Z will be available to end-users for $2,295.
