Vivitek H5080 DLP Home Theater HD Projector
posts in the same day by the same writer…I hope I don't open some
kind of interdimensional rift and suck through a horrible Earth-eating
demon by taking such a risk. Oh, the hell with it. For our readers, I
think it's worth it. Besides, I think that this whole CEDIA thing going
on in Atlanta has all of the manufacturers a bit out of their minds with
new products. Joining the projector party is Vivitek Corp, known for
their eco-conscious spin on visual displays and presentation products,
has announced the release of their latest high-definition, DLP home
theater projector, the H5080.
The Vivitek H5080 home theater projector is being touted as a
professional-grade projector built for the consumer enthusiast.
According to Vivitek, the H5080 provides native 1080p resolution, 1200
lumens of brightness and a 25,000:1 contrast ratio. It also incorporates
Pixelworks' DNX Motion Engine technology that is supposed to create
smoother pictures by eliminating blur in fast-moving scenes. The
projector design has the lens in a central position, as well as manual
vertical/horizontal lens shift for easier alignment with a screen.
Some of the other features of note found in the new H5080 include an
interchangeable lens option so you can choose between short- and
long-throw, a pretty typical 3000-hrs of lamp life, and a nice quiet
27dB fan. The connectivity options include three HDMI v1.3, VGA,
Component, S-Video, composite connections.
The new Vivitek H5080 DLP home theater projector is expected to be
available sometime in October with a retail price of $2,999. If you've
got the need and plenty of extra money, you can pick up separate short-
(1.33-1.79:1) and long-throw (2.22-4.43:1) lenses which retail for
$2,999 and $2,499 respectively.
