ViewSonic Debuts 3D DLP Projectors
ViewSonic this week debuted three new projectors feature DLP-based 3D projection capabilities, the PJD6211, PJD6221, and PJD6381. The new models are part of the first generation of projectors with Texas Instruments' new 3D DLP technologies, which were announced today at the InfoComm 2009 show in Orlando, FL.
Among the new offerings is the ultra-short-throw PJD6381, targeted specifically toward education. The new 120 Hz model has a throw ratio of 0.68 and is compatible with interactive whiteboards. It offers a resolution of 1,024 x 768 (XGA), a brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, and a contrast ratio of 2,500:1. As with all three of the new models, the PJD6381 supports both Texas Instruments' DLP Link and Nvidia's 3D-Vision.
The PJD6211 and PJD6221 (also 120 Hz and 3D capable) offer an XGA resolution, a brightness of 2,700 lumens, and a contrast ratio of 2,800:1. The PJD6221 is distinguished by its RJ-45 port for network control and configuration.
The PJD6381 is expected to be available in August 2009 for $1,249. The PJD6211($849) and PJD6221 ($999) are expected to be available in July. Further information can be found here.
Further information about T.I.'s 3D DLP technology will be available on the company's site here or on its YouTube channel here.
