ViewSonic Streams the Light

CES isn’t much a platform for launching video projectors (that’s why there’s CEDIA), but one company not typically known for home A/V products did use the show to introduce a pair of models designed for home theater, rather than classroom, use.

ViewSonic’s LightStream Pro7827HD ($999) and PJD7828HDL ($599) are affordable 1080p DLP projectors tuned for playing video in dark rooms. Of particular interest is the ISF-certified Pro7827HD, which has a six-segment (RGBRGB) color wheel, 2,200 lumens brightness, and ViewSonic’s SuperColor technology (apparently an extension of Texas Instruments’ BrilliantColor tech) for color performance enhancement. It also has a vertical lens shift adjustment plus a hidden compartment for plugging in an Amazon Fire, Roku or other streaming stick.

Both the Pro7827HD and PJD7828HDL will be available in March through online stores including and NewEgg.
