Atlanta - Home theater projector manufacturer
and high-end LCD TV resource
are announcing at CEDIA Expo Thursday that they have entered a partnership to develop and deliver high-performance, home theater-grade projectors for the custom installation market.
The first projector to be released under the partnership is the ProVu P2 Powered by Vivitek (Vivitek base model H9080HD LED).
The P2 (H9080HD LED projector) feature a Texas Instruments' DarkChip 4 Premium Spec DLP chip, a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, 800 lumens of brightness, professional grade optics (including long-, short- and anamorphic lens options), ISF calibration support, full HD 1080p (1,920 by 1080) resolution and Gennum's VXP image processing technology.
The LED light source is estimated to provide more than 20,000 hours of operating life in normal viewing conditions. Vivitek said that equates to running a traditional projector 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for just over two years without changing a lamp.
The Luminus PhlatLight RGB LED module replaces the traditional lamp and color wheel system, while increasing picture quality, expands the color spectrum and extends product life.
"We're pleased to be working with Vivitek on this latest venture to provide quality, high-performance home theater projectors," stated David Hester, NuVision vice chairman. "This partnership will allow NuVision to continue to expand its best-in-class home cinema solutions. And with UHP single chip in 3D and UHP 3-chip on the roadmap, there is a real commitment to stay at the forefront of excellence. The ProVu P2 Powered by Vivitek is also covered by NuVision's unparalleled service with a three-year warranty on parts and labor and an annual maintenance visit."
"Vivitek is delighted to partner with NuVision to give discerning home theater aficionados not only high-quality projectors, but also a high level of service and support through the NuVision specialy dealer channel," said Rick Nguyen, Vivitek general manager and senior VP. "Demanding fans and consumers want the best and together, NuVision and Vivitek are in a great position to provide it. As a manufacturer of a wide-range of projectors, we look forward to offering the home theater market innovative products through NuVision."
