The Affordable PJ256D is Bright, Light and Feature Rich

LAS VEGAS, June 8, 2005 – ViewSonic® Corp., a worldwide leader in visual display products, today announced the addition of the PJ256D, a 2.2-pound DLP™ projector, to its extensive professional and consumer display line. Designed to meet the demands of road warriors, the PJ256D is the company's first micro-portable projector that offers 1,500 lumens of brightness.

With an estimated street price of $1,499, the PJ256D offers compatibility, ease of use and excellent image quality in a lightweight, mobile form factor that can be transported easily. The projector's multiple connectivity options include PCs and DVD players to extend the usage scenarios for the PJ256D, making it practical for viewing presentations in the boardroom or movies in the living room. The display's quick and easy set up automatically syncs the input source, which is ideal for business users on the move.

"Not only does the PJ256D meet the stringent requirements of on-the-go professionals with its high brightness and enhanced connectivity, its portability, value and performance combine to make it an essential business tool," said Jeff Volpe , vice president of marketing, ViewSonic.

The PJ256D boasts a high 1024 x 768 XGA resolution and 2000:1 contrast ratio for clear, crisp images, while a remote control with built-in mouse capabilities and a laser pointer allows presenters to highlight points without interruption. Video features include integrated motion adaptive, progressive scan and 3:2 pull down to deliver vivid video with fewer artifacts. To support distraction-free viewing, an optical zoom lens allows users to change the screen size with the lens ring, and the whisper mode reduces noise output and extends the lamp life up to 4,000 hours.

The PJ256D is sold with ViewSonic's superior customer support program that includes a one-year limited projector lamp warranty, a three-year limited product warranty and one-year Express Exchange® service, along with 24/7 technical support, excluding major U.S. holidays. Available in July, the projector can be purchased through authorized ViewSonic distributors and solution providers, as well as through the professional audio-visual channel and mail order.
