Boxlight Announces Release Date for Widescreen Portable Projector
Jul 20, 2006 2:06 PM
Boxlight, a trusted resource for presentation technology and information, announced the coming release of the Broadview—a lightweight video projector with a native WXGA resolution. One of the first projectors on the market to offer widescreen capabilities, the Broadview compliments the corporate or traveling presenter who needs a dependable projection partner capable of displaying any document or image with stunning clarity and detail. The Broadview is expected to ship late summer 2006.
Over the last several years, the trend in portable computing has become widescreen. These machines build great looking presentations that, unfortunately, can’t be properly displayed on a standard 4:3 aspect ratio projector. With the Broadview, corporate and traveling presenters will never again have to contend with resized, blurry, cropped or compressed images. Presentations—whether in PowerPoint(R), a simple text document, or a feature film on DVD—seamlessly go from a widescreen monitor to a matching projected view almost anywhere.
“The greatest set of tools a presenter has is a laptop and a projector. These should work together flawlessly. With the release of the Broadview, widescreen laptop users finally have a solution that will allow them to place their focus on where it belongs—their message, not the technology,” said Herb Myers, founder and President of Boxlight.
In addition to the Broadview widescreen capabilities, this portable unit features a sleek design that weighs in at only 4.4 pounds. Perfect for the traveling presenter or to share between departments, the Broadview offers 2600 ANSI lumens of brightness so that it can be used in a well-lit room.
The Broadview is compatible with both Macintosh(R) and PC computers and supports all major video standards including NTSC, PAL, and SECAM.
Boxlight’s Broadview carries a suggested retail price of $1999. Units are available for pre-order beginning in August via the company’s website, www.boxlight.com, or by calling 800-762-5757.
