LightStream ‘PJD7’ High Definition Series deliver true-to-life image projection, 2x HDMI, optional wireless and impressive audio performance
London, UK (July 2nd, 2015) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, introduces the LightStream™ PJD7 High Definition Series of Projectors, adding to the existing line of LightStream projectors which deliver the ultimate in True-to-Life colours in any lighting condition. With the new PJD7-HD Series of LightStream projectors, ViewSonic aim to address the needs of a variety of different users, from corporate and hospitality to home entertainment. The PJD7-HD Series is ideal for viewing high definition content and delivers smart features including SuperColor for best in class colour accuracy, SonicExpert for enhanced integrated sound, optional wireless functionality and a throw ratio ideal for replacing 3LCD projectors (available on PJD7825HD).
“ViewSonic are committed to ensuring that we satisfy the latest consumer demands.” explains Mark Lufkin, Managing Director at ViewSonic Europe Ltd. “The most popular projector features right now are high definition widescreen images and the option to present wirelessly, as a result of the growing use of mobile devices in business and home environments. The PJD7 high definition series addresses both of these requirements and does so in style thanks to our all encompassing design”.
The LightStream™ PJD7-HD series of projectors have been designed to address the growing demand for products capable of displaying high quality content in Full HD 1080p. With SuperColor™ technology that features a newly designed 6-segment colour wheel these projectors offer true-to-life colour in any lighting condition. The PJD7830HDL features a throw ratio of 1.1-1.5, ideal for larger screens from smaller spaces in the home. The projectors’ brightness levels range from 3,200 up to 3,500 lumens for the PJD7835HD, making it perfect for hospitality and larger venues such as sports bars, restaurants and cafes.
The PJD7 High Definition series features native 1080p resolution, 22,000:1 Dynamic contrast, long lamp life of up to 10,000 hours and horizontal & vertical keystone correction with corner adjustment. SonicExpert – enhanced sound technology delivers best in class audio performance from the integrated (10W/16W) speaker for greater frequency range and minimized distortion at even the highest levels. Flexible inputs include 2x HDMI (1 of which MHL – Mobile High-Definition Link – for Wi-Fi presentation dongles like the ViewSonic WPG-300) and VGA, whilst a USB port provides enough power for media streaming dongles like Goggle Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV Stick.
ViewSonic are also addressing the requirements of those looking replace their existing 3LCD projectors with the long lasting colours, superior contrast ratios and more affordable running costs that DLP solutions offer. Many of these customers want a replacement projector that can be easily swapped to an existing ceiling mount and fit an image within a pre-installed screen. DLP projectors were previously unable to meet this requirement due to a typical throw ratio of 1.8 – 2.1 compared to the average 1.5 – 1.8 throw ratio of 3LCD. With a 1.5 – 1.8 throw ratio, the PJD7825HD provides a great DLP replacement option for existing 3LCD models in corporate and education environments.
Design is also a key element of these projectors. With a dot texture finish to minimise fingerprints, a hidden compartment for the front HDMI-MHL port and a rear cable management cover to hide unsightly wires, they look as good as they perform.
The new LightStream™ PJD7 High Definition series will all be available in August 2015 with RSP’s of PJD7825HD €699, £549, $949; PJD7830HDL €749, £579, $999; PJD7835HD €799, £619, $1,049 incl. VAT.
