ViewSonic brings budget projectors

ViewSonic brings budget projectors

Today ViewSonic debuted a series of budget projectors ranging in price from $899 to $1,499 for basic home and business projector needs.

Geared toward home users, the Cine1000 features a DLP engine and a 16:9 aspect ratio for a wide-screen home-theater experience. Weighing a light 8.8 pounds, the Cine1000's brightness rating is only 1,000 lumens, though that should be sufficient for home viewing.

With DLP engines, the 4.9-pound PJ458D and the 7.9-pound PJ766D will suit home or basic business needs. Both feature XGA resolutions of 1,024x 768, 2000:1 contrast ratios, and the ability to support HDTV signals. The 2,000-lumen PJ458D will cost $999, and the 2,500-lumen PJ766D will cost $1,499.

And in the ultraportable category, ViewSonic is offering the 4.9-pound PJ452 and the 6.2-pound PJ656. Both LCD projectors offer 1,024x768 XGA resolution. The PJ452 features 1,500 lumens of brightness and a 300:1 contrast ratio and will be available for $899, while the PJ656 provides 2,100 lumens of brightness and a 400:1 contrast ratio for $1,199.

All projectors will be available at the end of January.
