PLUS Vision Introduces Dual Color Mode V-339 ProjectorFirst projector with two color wheel options is optimal for business and home applications (September 12, 2005)
PLUS Vision Corporation of America, the leader in lightweight, mobile projector technology, raises the bar in the industry with the introduction of its V-339. The DLP projector with patent-pending Dual Color Mode technology is the first projector that can switch between two color modes for optimal color-usage. This 2.8-pound 1300 lumen projector is ideal for home or business use within industry segments like healthcare, pharmaceutical, architecture, design, photography, education or government.
With an award winning design, the V-Series projector allows users to push a single button to switch color wheel configurations between presentation and premium video applications. For business presentations, a four-segment color wheel, "dynamic mode," consisting of red, green, blue and white color segments can be used. For home use or business applications, when more vibrant color saturation is required, the projector can be switched to the six-segment color wheel, "vivid mode," which has a red, green, blue, red, green, blue configuration.
Vivid mode is ideal when very natural color reproduction is desired, for viewing richly colored digital camera photographs or projecting DVDs. Dynamic mode emphasizes clearness and is excellent for projecting in bright locations and business environments. In addition to the advantage of being able to use the projector at home, there are many business applications where the dual nature offers enhanced projection. Toggling can be performed on the fly with the DCM button on the unit or the remote control, even during projection.
"For users who want a projection system that can display video and crystal clear presentations, this is the best projector choice," said Bob Ferguson, Vice President of PLUS Vision Corporation of America. "The V-339 is like two projectors in one because it combines the display of colors with the precision of images."
The second projector in the V-series, PLUS Vision's V-339 is a true XGA projector with a contrast ratio of 2000:1. Fast set-up and quick teardown features are standard. It takes only 18 seconds for projection of the source image from when the unit is powered on. With Un-Plug-and-Go, the unit's fan operates until it is cooled down without the power cord plugged in. Other features like the built-in Iris Lens Cover offer a one-touch operation to open and close the rotary lens, without fear of losing it. The V-339 also adjusts picture distortion with fully automated source detection and keystone correction seconds after it is turned on and pointed at the screen. To square the projected image, the projector has a built in gyroscope technology that automatically adjusts the trapezoidal effect and squares the image.
Pricing, Accessories and Availability
The V-339 will start shipping in October and will have an estimated street price of $1995. The projector comes standard with VGA and power cables, a full-function credit card remote control, and soft carrying case. The V-339 series also offers PLUS Vision's standard 3-year parts and labor warranty.
