ViewSonic has launched the X1 and X2 high brightness 1080p LED projectors for home cinema use. The new beamers, which promise to offer flexible options for installation, feature 3rd generation LED technology with a claimed 30,000-hour lifespan. They also include Harman Kardon speakers for optimized audio.
“As an innovator and leader in LED technology, we are elevating the home entertainment experience with our new LED projector solutions. With enhanced brightness of 3,100 LED Lumens, the X1 and X2 not only deliver brighter and clearer images in any environment but offer more eco-friendliness compared to lamp-based projectors,” said Dean Tsai, General Manager of Projector & LED Display Business Unit at ViewSonic. “Without complicated installation and setup required, these projectors offer immersive audiovisuals on a big screen at any time.”
While the X1 can be mounted on the ceiling, the small room-oriented X2 with short throw capability can sit on a tabletop, producing a 100-inch image from 1.53m throw distance. The X1 has vertical lens shift and a 1.3x optical zoom lens improving flexibility for ceiling mounted units. Both projectors, meanwhile, deliver 3,100 LED lumens of brightness and 125% of the Rec.709 color space.
The X1 and X2 support H/V keystone, four-corner adjustment and auto keystone. As well as screen mirroring via Wi-Fi, there is USB-C port connectivity, and Bluetooth compatibility for various audio options. The projector can, for example, be connected to wireless headsets for immersive audio playback. Both projectors’ speakers can also be connected to a smartphone, so the X1 and X2 effectively operate as a sound system.
