1080P Front Projection Goes LED

H9080HD Redefines Home Theater Viewing Experience Through Performance and Features

ORLANDO, FL, June 17, 2009 – Vivitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of environmentally innovative visual display and presentation products, introduces the H9080HD Home Cinema projector to the professional audio/video industry. The world’s first 1080p, LED home cinema projector delivers next-generation video processing performance for demanding home theater enthusiasts and professional installers.

The Vivitek H9080HD home cinema projector offers an amazing 100,000:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of 800 lumens. With full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution and advanced image processing technologies from Gennum, the H9080HD redefines the home theater viewing experience. As an LED-based projector, the H9080HD provides stunning image quality unmatched by traditional lamp-based projectors.

The LED light source is estimated to provide up to 20,000 hours of operation in normal viewing conditions, which equates to running a traditional projector 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for just over 2 years without changing a lamp. The Luminus PhlatLight™ RGB LED module replaces the traditional lamp and color wheel system, and in turn, increases picture quality, expands the color spectrum and maintains 1080p resolution.

“The H9080HD is the flagship product in Vivitek’s home theater line-up. Packed with features and all digital connections, it brings the magic of the movies to your home,” said Christopher Yang, Sr. Product Manager at Vivitek. “The H9080HD is a paradigm shifting, powerful and high-performance projector that creates unbelievable pictures and smooth playback from various video sources.”

With a built-in 1.3x zoom with manual lens shift (+/-120% vertical and +/-30% horizontal), the H9080HD projector allows installers to create the perfect image. Add in a Dynamic Iris to automatically adjust black levels, the H9080HD is a home theater dream projection system. It also comes with a wide variety of connectivity options including HDMI 1.3, RS-232c, Component, Composite, S-Video, VGA and BNC connections for the latest video sources.

The Vivitek H9080HD incorporates low-energy and low-power consumption features, including the lamp-free, LED light source. It is also mercury-free, with a dust- and filter-free, sealed engine design that eliminates constant filter disposal and cleaning. The non-motion interior of the projector allows for quiet and cool running, which makes it ideal in a home theater setting.
Availability/WarrantyThe Vivitek H9080HD will be available in July 2009 through authorized Vivitek dealers and distributors for MAP of $14,999. The projector carries a three (3)-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
