BOXLIGHT Launches Wide-Screen Portable Projector

Press Release  |  May 5, 2006

Traveling and corporate presenters can let their ideas come in full view with the Broadview

Poulsbo, WA (May 2006) - BOXLIGHT® Corporation, a trusted resource for presentation technology and information, announced today the release of the Broadview—a lightweight video projector with a native WXGA resolution. One of the first projectors on the market to offer widescreen capabilities, the Broadview compliments the corporate or traveling presenter who needs a dependable projection partner capable of displaying any document or image with stunning clarity and detail.

Over the last several years, the trend in portable computing has become widescreen. These machines build great looking presentations that, unfortunately, can't be properly displayed on a standard 4:3 aspect ratio projector. With the Broadview, corporate and traveling presenters will never again have to contend with resized, blurry, cropped or compressed images. Presentations—whether in PowerPoint®, a simple text document, or a feature film on DVD—seamlessly go from a widescreen monitor to a matching projected view almost anywhere.

"The greatest set of tools a presenter has is a laptop and a projector. These should work together flawlessly. With the release of the Broadview, widescreen laptop users finally have a solution that will allow them to place their focus on where it belongs—their message, not the technology," said Herb Myers, founder and President of BOXLIGHT.

In addition to the Broadview widescreen capabilities, this portable unit features a sleek design that weighs in at only 4.4 pounds. Perfect for the traveling presenter or to share between departments, the Broadview offers 2600 ANSI lumens of brightness so that it can be used in a well-lit room.

The Broadview is compatible with both Macintosh® and PC computers and supports all major video standards including NTSC, PAL, and SECAM.

BOXLIGHT's Broadview is expected to ship June 2006 at a suggested retail price of $1999. Units are available for pre-order beginning in May via the company's website,, or by calling 800-762-5757.

In business longer than any other brand in the industry, BOXLIGHT is the first name in digital projection. This award-winning company offers a wide selection of presentation equipment with tools that have been designed to address the specific needs of trainers, educators, and corporate presenters. It is because of the company's dedication to the highest standards of quality, innovation, and customer service it is renowned by professional presenters in almost every field.

BOXLIGHT offers one of the best service and support packages available with a 15-day money back guarantee, two-year parts and labor warranty and a 120-day or 500-hour (whichever comes first) lamp guarantee. This is coupled with lifetime 24-hour technical support on all of its products.
