Viewsonic has just announced three new 3D capable projectors for the Aussie market. Sure, we could make a big deal about the lack of 3D content to make use of the projector, but we won't. Not today, anyway.
The three 3D capable projectors, PJD6381, PJD6211 and PJD6221, are all compatible with both the Texas Instruments DLP Link 3D technology and NVIDIA's 3D-Vision tech. The latter two will hit shelves in August, with the PJD6381 going on sale in September.
Announcing the first 3D projectors available in A/NZ from ViewSonic New offerings include three new 120Hz 3D enabled DLP projectors
Sydney, Australia, July 22, 2009 – ViewSonic, worldwide leader in visual display products, is excited to announce the first 3D projectors to hit the Australian and New Zealand markets. The all new PJD6381, PJD6211 and PJD6221 flexible, eco-friendly projectors provide enhanced 3D display capabilities ideal for a variety of environments including classroom, corporate and gaming. The projectors come equipped with advanced network management capabilities, multiple inputs and 120Hz refresh compatibility for a truly immersive 3D experience.
PJD6381– 3D ultra short-throw DLP projector The PJD6381 has one of the shortest throw ratios currently available for a DLP projector with a ratio of .68, helping to reduce shadowing effects and works well with a wide range of interactive whiteboard options. The projector has a 1024 x 768 XGA resolution, 2,500 ANSI lumens and a 2,400:1 contrast ratio to display detailed, brilliant images. Media can also be viewed in 3D with a 120Hz refresh rate as the projector is compatible with the two leading stereoscopic 3D technologies from Texas Instruments (DLP Link) and NVIDIA (3D-Vision), allowing users to see the most genuine, lifelike graphics. The PJD6381 also has RJ45 network management software allowing users to manage all networked projectors, schedule on / off times and send email alerts to administrators notifying timing for required maintenance, including scheduled lamp replacements.
PJD6211 and PJD6221 – 120Hz 3D Ready DLP projectors ViewSonic’s new DLP projectors are equipped with a 1024 x 768 XGA resolution, up to 2,700 lumens and a 2,800:1 contrast ratio to display bright, crisp images onto various surfaces. The PJD6221 includes RJ45 network management scheduling software that allows for control configuration and control remotely when connected to a centralised network. This network management tool is perfect for use in meeting rooms or classrooms. The projectors are equipped with two VGA input composite, S-Video and VGA inputs for increased connectivity with multiple devices, as well as a VGA output port for connecting an external display or secondary projector for multiple screen viewing.
The projectors are compatible with the two leading stereoscopic 3D technologies from Texas Instruments (DLP Link) and NVIDIA (3D-Vision) allowing users to interact with amazing 3D content. Gamers in 2D mode can also take advantage of the blazing fast 120Hz refresh rate to eliminate shadowing and distortion of screen images.
William Tse, Country Manager at ViewSonic Australia, said, “With these three new additions to ViewSonic’s already extensive line of projectors we are able to give administrators, businesses and gamers even more options through visual display technology. Our new offerings allow alternative, energy efficient ways for users to view and enjoy various forms of media.”
All ViewSonic DLP projectors are Energy Star® certified and feature ECO Mode configuration options saving up to 40% in energy consumption and extending the lamp life up to 6,000 hours, in turn decreasing the total cost of ownership.
The ViewSonic PJD6211 and PJD6221 projectors will be available in August 2009 and the PJD6381 projector will be available in September 2009 in Australia and New Zealand.
