Oct 24, 2007, 01:00 ET from ViewSonic(R) Corp.

    SEATTLE, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewSonic(R) Corp. today fueled its
 projector market share momentum with five new DLP projectors that meet the
 diverse presentation and entertainment needs of classrooms, boardrooms and
 road warriors. This launch comes on the heels of tremendous growth for the
 company, as ViewSonic became the fastest growing projector brand in the
 market in the first half of 2007(1).
     The new, affordable projectors - the PJ557D, PJ559D, PJ560D, PJ551D and
 PJ260D - all include Texas Instruments' BrilliantColor(TM) Technology,
 giving users the best display performance available to the mainstream
 market. BrilliantColor(TM) Technology provides richer, more lifelike images
 by using a wider range of the color spectrum, making presentations brighter
 and more dynamic than ever before.
     "Extending beyond the desktop, ViewSonic understands that educators and
 busy professionals require easy-to-use projectors with outstanding image
 quality that fit within their budget," said Jeff Volpe, vice president of
 marketing, ViewSonic Americas. "These new feature-rich projectors
 demonstrate how ViewSonic is leveraging its leadership in desktop displays
 to deliver a complete portfolio of products with superior visual
 performance and quality that surpass customer expectations."
     PJ557D, PJ559D and PJ560D - Educational Value
     For schools and universities that require A+ performance on a tight
 budget, the PJ557D, PJ559D and PJ560D combine ease of use and reliability
 with estimated street prices of $799, $899 and $1,099 respectively. These
 plug-and- play projectors feature an extended lamp life of up to 4,000
 hours to reduce the total cost of ownership, while an integrated RS232 port
 provides PC remote access and integrated third party control systems for
 easy system administration and decreased downtime. Two five-watt built-in
 speakers bring multimedia presentations to life, while multiple screen
 modes such as Blackboard, Whiteboard and Greenboard reduce the glare on
 each of these specific surfaces. The projectors deliver clear video with a
 1024x768 XGA native resolution, and provide bright images with 2,200 lumens
 for the PJ557D, 2,700 lumens for the PJ559D and 3,200 lumens for the
     PJ551D - Budget-Friendly Projections
     The PJ551D projector is available for an ESP of $649 and boasts 2,200
 lumens of brightness. The projector includes several image quality
 features, such as a 2000:1 contrast ratio and a 1024x768 XGA native
 resolution to display crisp, detailed presentations and video. In addition,
 vertical auto keystone correction and manual lens shift ensure sharp
 images, as well as whisper mode to extend bulb life and reduce fan noise
 during important presentations.
     PJ260D - Road Warrior Portability
     With an ESP of $999, the PJ260D offers compatibility, ease of use and
 excellent image quality in a lightweight, mobile form factor that can be
 transported effortlessly. The PJ260D's quick and easy set up automatically
 synchronizes the input source, making the projector ideal for business
 travelers or teachers that move from room to room between periods. The
 projector boasts a high 1024x768 XGA resolution, 2,000 lumens and 2000:1
 contrast ratio for clear, crisp images, while a remote control with
 built-in mouse capabilities and laser pointer allows presenters to
 highlight key points without interruption.
     The PJ557D, PJ559D, PJ560D, PJ551D and PJ260D are available in November
 through authorized ViewSonic professional audio-visual resellers,
 distributors and solution providers. The projectors will be sold with
 ViewSonic's superior customer support program that includes a three-year
