ViewSonic Pro8500 overview

  • 1Description

The ViewSonic Pro8500 XGA DLP Projector is a high-performance unit designed to support up to 120Hz frame rate through the 3D DLP Sync. The DLP imaging chip is so fast, it is able to project two images on the screen at one time to create the 3D image viewed through the active glasses. In addition to the two images on the screen, the DLP chip also sends similar data to the glasses in-between each frame of video to make the magic of 3D possible.

The impressive specs include a blazing 5,000 lumens of brightness, enough to meet most ambient light challenges. In fact, you can leave the lights on during presentations to take notes. XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution is backed with a super-crisp dynamic contrast ratio of 4900:1, to deliver stunning all-digital clarity with vivid color, sharp graphics and outstanding video. BrilliantColor's sophisticated 5-segment color (RGBWY) wheel provides greater color accuracy than standard DLP projectors with a 4-segment color wheel. The result is greater sharpness, brightness and contrast in lifelike images with remarkable depth.

The digital keystone adjustment feature takes the guess work out of adjusting your image and reduces set-up time, while the Pro8500's wide connectivity which includes HDMI allows a one-cable connection to digital sources. 

The Pro8500 accommodates installations from permanent ceiling-mounted to simple desk-mounted use, making it a perfect choice for boardrooms and educational institutions. The RJ-45 connection makes remote control of multiple projectors across a network possible, as well as allowing messaging or bulletins throughout a campus or corporate facility.   

For power, superior color, world-wide use and Mac or PC compatibility, the Viewsonic Pro8500 is hard to beat.
