Mobile Projector – The World's Thinnest
PLUS Vision Corporation of America,
the leader in projector miniaturization technology, introduced today the
world’s thinnest mobile projector line, the V3 series. At 1.38 inches high
the projector is as thin as a laptop computer, yet includes the features found
in larger projectors.
The new projector line includes the V3-111, an 800 lumen SVGA (800x600)
projector and the V3-131 a 1000 lumen XGA (1024 x 768) projector. Both feature
quiet performance, a 2000:1 contrast ratio, and employ Digital Light Processing™
by Texas Instruments. PLUS Vision designed the V3 specifically for mobile
professionals who want to carry a laptop and a projector in a single bag.
"With its amazingly thin form factor the V3 is very exciting," said S. Mark Hand,
vice president, sales and marketing. "This sleek unit includes industry-leading
technological innovations that the display industry has come to expect from PLUS.
We have created a 'personal projector' that can easily be carried by anyone, anywhere."
To further assist with portability, the V3 comes standard with protective
sleeves for both the projector and its accessories, making packing for trips
The new PLUS Vision V3 projectors include features and functions designed
for quick and easy set-up. Full automatic sensing and projector adjustment
enables users to instantly achieve an optimized projected image by input
source. With digital keystone correction the V3 provides distortion-free,
square images. Additionally, all V3 models offer a money-saving "Eco-Mode" option
to extend lamp life by more than 30 percent.
The V3 offers support for the latest video standards including 480p, 576p 780p
and 1080i High Definition imaging and allows for video input from sources
including component (YCbCr, YPbPr), S-video and composite video. The world’s
smallest projectors also offer other in-demand features including 2x digital
zoom and a presentation timer. The timer can be set for presentation times of
10 to 60 minutes in 10-minute increments.
The V3 series comes standard with password security protection as an anti-theft
deterrent. When the security feature is enabled, the projector will work only
with the user’s secret password.
The V3 series ships with all necessary accessories needed for effective
presentations, including lightweight cables, a credit card style full-function
remote control and protective sleeves for both the projector and accessories.
Everything fits nicely in a single briefcase.
The V3-111 will be introduced with a street price of $1,595 and the V3-131
at $2,295. Both projectors come with PLUS Vision’s comprehensive "peace-of-mind"
three-year warranty. First production shipments of the V3 are scheduled
for mid-December 2003.
