As expected, no longer a entire lot of projector motion here at CES.  The Sony VPL-VW350ES was once the obvious colossal announcement on the dwelling theater aspect, at this years show.

That stated, so far I've also met with Sony, BenQ, Viewsonic, LG and Vivitek thus far.  BenQ quite didn't have whatever new to show off.  They'd their HT1085, the quick throw variant of the HT1075 I've beforehand reviewed.

More interesting of their booth was their color matching system, Colorific,  in motion demo'd on considered one of their projectors and in comparison with their color matching official monitors.  Even as one might keep in mind that projector (which I'll go into more element after the show) a crossover compatible for home use, it relatively is meant for business functions, bringing the ability to get correct color for use wherever needed.  (extra on that later)

Viewsonic had somewhat more happening.  They had been displaying off a number of new projectors and also gave me a run by way of as to what's coming in the following couple of quarters.

The two new models which are delivery this quarter are the PJD5 series:  PJD5153, and PJD5555W, both 3200 lumens.  XGA and WXGA respectively, if I recollect effectively.  (I've simply visible too many merchandise, my mind is fogging up).  They are sporting Viewsonic's Lightstream color matching (see a trend here?)

I'm playing seize-up with Viewsonic.  They've started delivery their PJD-7822HD (image under).  The PJD7822HD is a refresh on the very fashionable PJD-7820HDL, which used to be the primary low cost 1080p projector at $699 a pair years in the past.

The refresh boosts brightness to 3200 lumens, and according to Viewsonic, the firmware has additionally been up to date, in order that we will have to count on rather higher color performance'¦

Viewsonic is shipping me one to check, but give me 30 days, the projectors are stacking up in the checking out room!

LG sported several new pocket sized solid state projectors, which incorporated the brand new PW700 ' yes seven-hundred lumens and very small.  I particularly didn't get a full tour, so I'll ought to dig via their press releases to provide more data on this one, and some others.  Beneath is the PW700 (WXGA 1280x800 decision).  Under, together with some photographs from the projector room of their sales space.  The PW700 physical activities Bluetooth audio.

That brings us to Vivitek, so we can be launching the brand new Qumi 6 pocket projector, which I'll quilt in a different web publication.  They also confirmed their ultra quick throw projector with attachment to provide multi-monitor capabilities (for instance in the classroom), which will permit the projector to display a couple of photographs at the same time from four one-of-a-kind sources ' such as shrewd telephones, desktops, drugs, even as.  A instructor or trainer can select which of 64 (I consider) special sources to display.  This isn't new tech, however the first I've seen from Vivitek, and their interface may be very person friendly, some thing the teacher will appreciate.  Shown under displaying special sources in three of the four home windows.

finally, to circular matters out, in the TI (DLP) booth, I noticed a new pocket projector from ASUS, that I wish to assessment.  Like the LG it's 700 lumens, but get this, this one is designed to run for multiple hours on interior batteries!

Ok, that's it for now, again to the show ground.  In these days i'll spend practically all my time watching at Smarter residence Automation apparatus and solutions, together with various Z-Wave merchandise.  I've been speakme to Fibaro, Nexia, Insteon, and a number of others thus far.  I'll be blogging at the end of the exhibit about all that 'stuff' in my residence automation weblog.
