Viewsonic Launches Entry-level Projectors

Viewsonic's PJL6233 features color correction and XGA resolution for less than $600.

Viewsonic has rolled out two sub-$700 LCD projectors with wired networking and the ability to project color corrected images on nonwhite surfaces.

The new projectors, dubbed the PJL6243 and the PJL6233, feature a native resolution of 1,024 x 768(XGA) and an automatic Keystone correction of ±30 degrees.

The PJL6243 has a brightness of 3,000 lumens, a contrast ratio of 2,000:1, and a 10-watt speaker, while the PJL6233 comes equipped with a brightness of 2,600 lumens, a contrast ratio of 500:1, and a one-watt speaker.

Both projectors have red, blue, yellow, green, and blackboard video modes that can be manually selected to correct the color of content projected on some nonwhite surfaces. Additional video modes include standard, real, and dynamic.

RS-232 control, RJ-45 connectivity, password protection, and a Kensington lock slot are offered as standard features on both models.

AV inputs include two analog RGB/component (mini D-sub 15-pin), S-video, composite video, and stereo RCA jacks. AV outputs include analog RGB/component (mini D-sub 15-pin) and a stereo minijack.

Both projectors are covered by a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, a 1-year express exchange warranty, and a 1-year limited lamp warranty.

The PJL6243 is currently available for $699, while the PJL6233 ships for $599.
