ViewSonic PJD2121, WPG-350
ViewSonic has announced a pair of new projection-related devices, beginning with the PJD2121. The product is a DLP-based pico projector, able to display images as large as 60 inches or more at distances as close as four feet. The device is limited to a native resolution of 800x600, but it does support RGB and component input with resolutions up to 720p/1080i. Brightness is rated at 400 lumens, with a 1,800:1 contrast ratio.
The WPG-350 is a miniature wireless bridge, designed to provide an 802.11b/g/n link between a computer and a projector (or other display) with VGA input. The unit handles native resolutions up to 1024x768, but can technically accept throughput as sharp as 1080p.
The products are now shipping at costs of $449 and $199.
