  • 0.65" Digital Micromirror Device (DLP)
  • Advanced DLP Technology & No Air Filters
  • Laser LED Hybrid Light Engine Technology
  • Brightness: 1600 ANSI Lumens

The ViewSonic Pro9000 Full HD 1080p Laser LED Hybrid Home Theater Projector delivers 1600 ANSI lumens of brightness with an ultra-low noise level of only 28 dB. It features an ultra-high 100,000:1 contrast ratio with a dynamic 4000:1 contrast ratio, which offers a trade-off between brightness and contrast - depending on your application. It also features a 16:9 native widescreen aspect ratio and Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution.

The projector's state-of-the-art laser LED hybrid technology generates RGB primary colors directly from the light engine without the need of a color wheel. This minimizes rainbow effect and ghosting, while enhancing color accuracy. Plus, the Pro9000's DLP technology affords lifelike imagery, fast response times and no air filters. The lamp-free technology and elimination of air-filters helps to give this projector a very low total cost of ownership.

For connectivity, the Pro9000 features dual HDMI inputs, a composite video input, an S-video input and a VGA input. Other ports include an analog audio input and an analog audio output. Another unique feature of the Pro9000 is the energy efficient, instant on and off capability. Since, there's no traditional lamp to warm up or cool down, the projector can be turned on and off as soon as you're ready to watch or as soon as you're done watching. Plus, an Eco-mode offers even more energy efficiency.

Main Features

Laser LED Hybrid Technology
With state-of-the-art laser LED hybrid technology, the Pro9000 generates RGB primary colors directly from the light engine without the need of a color wheel. That means rainbow effect and ghost images are greatly minimized while enhancing color accuracy to reach 85% NTSC color gamut, which is 50% more color spectrum than conventional mercury lamp projectors
Lamp-Free, Mercury-Free Design for Over 20,000 Hours of Usage
Powered by the latest laser LED hybrid light engine technology, the ViewSonic Pro9000 uses a combination of laser and LEDs to deliver a true lamp-free, mercury-free projection that is capable of operating 4x longer than a conventional mercury lamp projector. With over 20,000 hours of operation, the Pro9000 is designed to achieve optimized energy efficiency, brightness sustainability and reliable performance
Full HD 1920 x 1080p Native Resolution
The Pro9000 features Full HD 1920 x 1080p native resolution. Plus, DarkChip3 technology by Texas Instruments (TI) delivers lifelike details and true clarity for an enjoyable visual experience when watching all types of high-definition formats
100,000:1 Ultra High Contrast Ratio
Powered by TI DarkChip3 technology, the Pro9000 features 1600 ANSI lumens and a 100,000:1 ultra-high contrast ratio to enhance finer detail of gray, which is the key for delivering optimum clarity and details - especially in dark-scene movies
Digital Light Processing (DLP) Technology
Advanced DLP technology allows you to experience clear, sharp and lifelike images with the same DLP technology that Hollywood relies on. For fast action, the response time is 1000 times faster than similar LCD based projectors. And with no air filters to clean or change, the DLP based projectors from ViewSonic offer one of the lowest TCO (total cost of ownership) in the industry
HDMI Digital Connectivity
Equipped with dual HDMI inputs, the Pro9000 delivers the maximum picture and sound quality available without losing any degradation. It's perfect for connecting to HDMI-enabled Full HD 1080p devices including set-top boxes, media players, game consoles, laptops, computers and Blu-ray players
Consistent Brightness for Consistent Performance
The Pro9000's lamp-free, advanced laser LED hybrid technology has superior brightness sustainability for extended period. That means the Pro9000 provides reliable, consistent performance that maintains its original brightness for a long period of time. After playing hundreds of movies, the Pro9000 will be as bright as it was the first time you used it
Energy Efficient Instant On/Off
With lamp-free hybrid light technology, the Pro9000 takes a couple seconds to reach its full brightness level. Furthermore, the projector can instantly shut off to eliminate the time and power for cool down - an advanced improvement for greener, smarter energy efficiency
Eco-Mode Saves Money, Energy & The Planet
With only a slight 20% decrease in brightness, the Eco-mode function can extend the life of your laser LED lamp by almost 50% and up to 5000 hours in some cases. Other benefits of Eco-mode operation include reduced power consumption, as well as less heat and audible noise output. It´s good for the environment and great for your budget. The Eco-mode function will also help lower your total cost of ownership
Peace of Mind
ViewSonic offers one of the industry´s best overall projector warranties with a 3-year limited parts, 1-year lamp and first year free Express Exchange service warranty

      Comments about ViewSonic Pro9000 Full HD 1080p Laser LED Hybrid Home Theater Projector:

      This is my forth projector and i bought it almost a year ago.NO lamps to change and NO filters to clean.The picture on my 100 inch screen is unbeliveable. My other projectors cost me a ton of money in replacement lamps alone.So i suggest this model / PRO 9000 to anyone who wants a great picture with NO warm up needed. Also they were not kidding about the Lo noise level. It"s unbelievably low

        Comments about ViewSonic Pro9000 Full HD 1080p Laser LED Hybrid Home Theater Projector:

        I was in the market to replace my 10 yr. old Sanyo PLV-70 Projector because I was moving up to full HD (1080p) on all my players - U-verse TV, Blu-ray, Roku, etc. from component video cables. The PLV-70 was never a full HD projector, but still has very high quality clarity in the WXGA format: 1366 x 768 pixels.

        ViewSonic's Pro9000 is a great upgrade for me. This projector has many very good features that match the PLV-70 - like great brightness and color. It is easy to set up and the remote is extremely good; all the buttons light up and that is a great help in a dark room. The Pro9000 has an energy saving mode and its menus are easy to use. I especially was drawn to this projector because of the No-Wait warm up of the projection lamp. (The fact that this projector's hybrid lamp is listed for over 20,000 hours is very impressive.) My old PLV-70 has a 30 sec. warm-up and cool-down that seems to last forever! And replacement lamps are several hundreds of $s a pop!

        The only negative features are this projector's lack of a greater zoom range and the clunky manual focus ring. But since I am using this projector in a fixed location (my ceiling) and plan to set it up only once, these are of little importance to me.

        I tried using a "univeral" ceiling mount with the Pro9000 and it did not work - the 3mm bolts were too short and the whole mount seemed too complex because of its many parts. I then noticed a simple, close to the ceiling mount(4" space between ceiling and projector) that works for me.

        I did not find any information on the type of screen to use with the Pro9000. It was recommended that my old PLV-70 be used with the Steward Filmscreen Grayhawk style screen - this screen is slightly gray in color and boosts the blacks that the PLV-70's LCDs tend to wash out a bit. I am using this screen (at 100") and the color, contrast, blacks and all seem to be excellent.

        I am looking forward to many years of use with this new projector!
