Drawing on its 20-year heritage and expertise in the visual display industry, ViewSonic â Corp. recently announced its entry into the “luxury home theater lifestyle” category with the launch of its Precisionâ Series home theater projector.
The ViewSonic Pro8100 Precision Series projector is designed exclusively for custom installation and specialty retail channels. It combines the latest in color performance, technology and design for superb overall image quality with both standard and high definition sources.
“With our recent 46 percent growth year-over-year in the projector market,  it was a natural fit for us to expand our projector expertise to include the 1080p home theater Pro8100,” said Alan Chang, managing director of ViewSonic Asia Pacific region . “This projector delivers high-end performance meeting the expectations of high end consumer and aligns our display leadership with the strengthening custom installer channel.”
The Pro8100 uses ViewSonic’s proprietary Precision Color System (PCS), an image enhancement technology that renders natural colors with extensive tuning capabilities. The PCS chipset is the final gatekeeper to ensure accurate color reproduction by fine-tuning and correcting any color reproduction errors of the front-end scalar. PCS features include 3D color management, auto contrast, H-Edge enhancement, 33 levels of gamma correction, and a daylight mode function to automatically adjust the image based on the lighting environment. In addition, the Pro8100 features a high performance Silicon Optix Reon processor with HQV TM that provides leading edge video processing to help eliminate feathering artifacts and “jaggies” and deliver stunning video.
Creating a true home theater experience, the Pro8100 offers full HD 1080p resolution, 13,000:1 contrast ratio, 1,000 lumens of brightness, auto iris, and full HD optics. The projector provides
excellent connectivity including all standard connections as well as two HDMI 1.3 inputs with HDCP which further the projector’s functionality and allows connection to a number of devices such as game consoles, HD broadcast receivers, Blu-ray and HD-DVD players.
The Pro8100 home theater projector is now available at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (SRP) of $4,995 (over P200,000), and comes in standard black color. Customers, however, have the option of customizing the projector to their décor with optional white, silver or burgundy skins.
The Pro8100 is backed by ViewSonic’s superior customer support program that includes a three-year limited product warranty, 24/7 technical support and 1-year Express Exchange ® service at no extra charge. ViewSonic also provides a one-year or 1,000 hours warranty on the lamp. The Pro8100 is now being sold at authorized dealers and specialty retailers.
