Home theater buffs looking to replicate the big screen experience in their living rooms or man caves aren't the only ones who can benefit from a Full HD 1080p projector, at least not as far as ViewSonic is concerned. ViewSonic's new Pro8300 is just such a projector, boasting a 1920x1080 resolution, 3000 lumen rating, and "precise color performance and sharpness" that business users can take advantage of to pitch presentations.
ViewSonic also envisions its Pro8300 being used by teachers for multimedia, and of course there's nothing stopping you from plopping the projector in your home and firing up The Grey, provided you live in Europe, where this thing is being launched.
"ViewSonic understands business applications and launches the Pro8300 with an abundance of features that are capable of delivering outstanding presentations to partners and clients," ViewSonic says. "Pro8300 effectively elevates brainstorming meetings and commercial briefing by projecting information with 3000lm high brightness and a superior 1.5X optical zoom lens design to provide vibrant images with more 35 percent of additional zooming capability. The amazing clarity in 1080p Full HD resolution and detailed projection, allows the Pro8300 to dynamically enhance presentation quality and audience interaction."
The Pro8300 features dual HDMI and VGA inputs, a 10-bit image color processor, and a pair of 10W speakers. It will be available in Europe later this month for £999.00 inc VAT (around $1,577). No word on when or if ViewSonic plans to bring the Pro8300 to U.S. shores.
