If you’re going to start something new, there’s nothing like going in strong and shooting for the top. Viewsonic, making its debut into the world of high-end home theatre, brings us the Pro8100 full HD home theatre projector.
Aimed at the custom install and specialist retailer market, the 1080p full HD Pro8100 uses an in-house developed colour-tuning chip attending to such correction matters as contrast, image edge enhancement, gamma and 3D colour management for the best possible picture – or ‘ultimate’ picture, as ViewSonic likes to put it. That’s fighting talk right there.
Putting out the 1080p image at a contrast ratio of 13,000:1 at 1000 lumens, the new $4,499 projector also hosts two HDMI 1.3 inputs and ships with a three-year warranty, plus a separate 1000-hour, or one year, warranty on the lamp itself.
