ViewSonic PS501W overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy bright images in most environments with the ViewSonic PS501W 3500-Lumen WXGA Short-Throw DLP Projector. Its 3500 lumens of brightness can overcome ambient light in many situations, making it well-suited for presentation areas such as boardrooms and classrooms. The WXGA 1280 x 800 native resolution is suitable for displaying most file and document types, as well as HD video. With its short 0.49:1 throw ratio, the projector can be placed very near your projection surface while still producing large images.

The PS501W has an HDMI input for connecting digital high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players and HD cable/satellite boxes, and two VGA inputs for analog sources. Its HDMI input is 3D-capable for viewing 3D Blu-ray discs with other compatible equipment, which is available separately. A VGA output allows daisy-chaining of multiple projectors or displays. The PS501W includes a VGA cable and an IR remote control for added convenience.

SuperColor for Enhanced Color Accuracy
ViewSonic's SuperColor technology features a six-segment color wheel and dynamic lamp control capabilities, helping to provide a wide color range.
Large Images in Small Spaces
The short-throw lens enables large images to be projected from short distances. This helps to eliminate blinding light for the presenter, distracting shadows on the projected image, and glaring hotspots on the screen.
3500 Lumens of Brightness
The PS501W combines 3500 lumens of brightness with a 22,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to produce clear images in most environments.
HDMI Input & Powered USB Port
Wireless HDMI adapters, such as Google Chromecast, Roku Streaming Stick, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and others, can be plugged into the projector's HDMI port while receiving power via a USB cable plugged into the projector's powered USB output. The USB port can power most wireless adapters, so a separate power source isn't likely needed.
SuperEco Helps Extend Lamp Life
The SuperEco energy-saving feature allows you to dim projection brightness by up to 70%, reducing power consumption, extending the lamp life up to 15,000 hours.
3D Blu-ray Ready HDMI Input
Enjoy 3D projection with your compatible 3D Blu-ray player and the optional PGD-350 shutter glasses, or any other compatible 3D glasses.
Reduced Input Latency
The PS501W features a low 16 ms input latency to produce fast frame-by-frame action.
Compatible with an Optional Interactive Whiteboard Module
When paired with the optional PJ-VTOUCH-10S interactive whiteboard module, the projector becomes an interactive projection solution. Multiple users can simultaneously interact and collaborate at the screen using their fingers or styli.

    ViewSonic PS501W reviews

    PS501W 3500-Lumen WXGA Short-Throw DLP Projector is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems to be a great projector This is very bright and we have no problem watching it even with the lights on or drapes open. In the dark it is awesome. it is easy to operate and colors are bright. I would probably give it 5 stars but this is our first projector so I don't have a lot of experience with projectors. Also how much you like something has a lot to do with how long it lasts... if it craps out after 8 months I won't like it anymore however this projector has a good warranty and I hope I never need to use it. I have no regrets about it at this point and it is everything I was looking for in a projector. Using it ceiling mounted throwing a 120" image.
