About Advanced laser & LED hybrid illumination technology
Natural light is formed by a combination of red, green and blue colours; with the green spectrum playing a crucial role by occupying around 60% of colour composition. Advanced laser and LED illumination technology is designed to enhance green spectrum performance and enrich overall colour rendition. This technology combines blue and red LEDs and blue lasers along with green phosphors. The blue laser passes through a clear part of the wheel and excites green phosphors on the other half. Then, the primary colours of light are consolidated. A digital light processor, smaller than a postage stamp, contains a matrix of hinged micro-mirrors that pivot to generate a complete image, reflected into the lens. By enhancing the green spectrum and solid-state blue laser and blue and red LED light sources, this technology enhances 50% colour gamut and 100,000:1 contrast ratio, delivering vibrant, sharp and saturated colour performance.
In addition, the mercury-free technology adopts a solid-state light source, increasing projector life time to 20,000 hours. No fans are needed to cool the lamp, so you can instantly turn the projector on and off without waiting for warming or cooling, efficiently reducing total cost of ownership and providing a quiet environment.
ViewSonic’s Pro9000 will be available in Europe, October 2012 for an ESP of only €1,999 / £1,599 (inc. VAT). The Pro9000 includes a three-year limited warranty. For further information please visit www.viewsoniceurope.com.
