ViewSonic releases its brightest projector made for large venues

At 5,000 lumens, the new ViewSonic PJ1173 could function as a bat signal. This high performance projector supports 1080p with a native resolution of 1024×768 (wait, what? Ask them.) and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. They say it produces large crisp visuals, even in well lit rooms.

With its picture quality and added features, the PJ1173 was developed to create an ‘experience’ for the user and audience at a competitive price,” said Jeff Volpe, vice president of Global Brand and Emerging Technologies, ViewSonic.

Bold words. If you are looking to pick up the PJ1173, it’s only available now through authorized ViewSonic professional audio-visual resellers for a street price of $3,799. So cheap!
