ViewSonic Introduces New Line of LED Projectors

The first of its portable, lightweight, and energy-efficient LED projector models come 3D-ready with 120Hz frame rates for immersive 3D visuals.

The first of its portable, lightweight, and energy-efficient LED projector models come 3D-ready with 120Hz frame rates for immersive 3D visuals.

VARs were given two new LED projectors to offer their SMB clients this week. ViewSonic Corp. unveiled a new projector line with general availability of the PLED-W200 and PLED-W500 projector models.

ViewSonic Introduces New Line of LED Projectors  The new line of projectors is being billed by ViewSonic as “ideal for the business traveler or on-the-road presenter.” The two new models are portable, energy-efficient form factors, with 20,000-hour long-life LED light sources.

Both the PLED-W200 and PLED-W500 come 3D-ready with 120Hz frame rates for immersive 3D visuals. The short throw projectors feature WXGA widescreen resolutions for large screen HD projection in compact spaces. Paired with USB port and HDMI connectivity (only available on the PLED-W500), the models sport Microsoft Office viewer functionality and an SD card reader for such display documents as PDFs, videos, photos, and multimedia files. For additional multimedia file storage, the PLED-W500 also offers 1GB of internal memory.

“Mobility and energy efficiency are two main trends in the projector market,” says Roger Chien, ViewSonic’s projectors product manager. “The PLED series transforms the projector from a cumbersome gadget to an incredibly lightweight, compact device that can be carried anywhere to meet all your projection needs. With a mercury-free LED light source and power consumption of less than 50 watts, these pico projectors are as eco-friendly as they are portable, making for powerhouse business solutions.”

The palm-sized projectors are lightweight — less than one pound for the PLED-W200 and less than three pounds for the PLED-W500. Both projectors are designed to deliver brilliant color with high native WXGA resolutions ideal for 720p HD viewing, and 250 ANSI lumens on the PLED-W200 and 500 ANSI lumens on the PLED-W500.

“Teamed with integrated speaker and an assortment of connectivity options, users can present and enjoy everything from image slideshows to presentations in a PC-less, cordless setup,” states ViewSonic in a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB. “The PLED-W500 kicks connectivity up a notch with HDMI 1.3 support for simple connectivity to a Blu-ray DVD player, tablet or other HD media device for a widescreen gaming or home theater experience.”

The PLED-W200 and PLED-W500 will be available in mid-October, with three-year limited warranties for respective ESPs of $499 and $699.
