ViewSonic Pro8400 overview

  • 1Description

The ViewSonic Pro8400 1080p HD Installation Projector is both a dream machine for the true videophile and a powerful workhorse for permanent installations in large venues. 

The Pro8400 makes beautiful, vivid pictures thanks to its Texas Instruments DLP DMD (Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device) imaging panel with BrilliantColor. Unlike other technologies such as LCD that use just three primary colors to produce the image, DLP technology with BrilliantColor uses up to seven separate colors. BrilliantColor not only improves color accuracy, it brightens secondary colors as well. This combination increases the brightness of the colors by up to 50 percent over DLP projectors without BrilliantColor for accurate, true-to-life images. It makes all of its magic while drawing a maximum of 360W. In Standby mode it draws less than a single watt.

That great color technology would be wasted, however if you couldn't back it up with strong specs and the Pro8400 has them. Start with the10-bit video processor which enhances color and detail. Add 1080p Full HD resolution, the highest standard available, and back it up with 4,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a crisp 3,000:1 contrast ratio, and you've got a powerful projector that can meet the challenge of ambient light and absolutely blow you away at theater light levels.

The Pro8400's wide connectivity includes 2 HDMI, component, composite, S-video and audio jacks. Additionally the unit features USB type A for photo and graphics support as well as USB mini-B for direct projection of media from a PC. The built-in 10W speakers suffice for most presentations if you're using the Pro8400 for business or educational purposes, but you'll probably want to match this projector with a complete sound system. The Pro8400 is also network capable thanks to its RJ-45 connection. You can control as many as 8 projectors over your network as well as allowing 4 presenters to connect to any single projector.  

All of those great specs however, could be ruined by a noisy cooling fan. At 33dB the Pro8400's Normal mode is quieter than many projectors' so called "Whisper mode" and in Eco mode it hushes down to a barely perceptible 29dB while extending lamp life to 4,000 hours.

All of this high quality projection power weighs less than 9 lb, operates on a 100 - 240V AC power supply and is compatible with NTSC, PAL and SECAM signals, making the Pro8400 a global citizen that's ready to travel if needed.
