ViewSonic announced the world's first High Definition, fully-featured, multifunction, "Made for iPod," DLP front projector. The PJ258D brings new digital lifestyle entertainment options to iPod enthusiasts with video by giving them the portable display technology to take viewing experiences from "pocket" size to life-size, without the need of a computer.

Studies have shown that iPod users are three times as likely to download video clips, movies and Web casts to their computers, making the PJ258D perfect for sharing personal media content. Mimicking the sleek design of the iPod and weighing less than 4 pounds, the PJ258D is a portable powerhouse ideal for teens, young adults, home theater enthusiasts, and business professionals looking to bring the benefits of their digital media content to any environment--from living room walls and basements, to well-lit hotel rooms and conference rooms.

Much like the iPod, the PJ258D was designed with ease of use and versatility in mind. The docking station connects the iPod with video directly to the projector to eliminate the need for a computer to project video content. In addition, it charges the iPod's battery while digital content is being played to make hours of entertainment possible. The projector also supports other popular digital media through its multiple connectivity options, including S-Video and VGA, which enable users to quickly connect to PCs, DVD players and video game consoles.

Built on Texas Instruments' award-winning DLP platform, the PJ258D boasts a sharp 1024x768 XGA resolution, 2,000 lumens of brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio to deliver bright, crisp pictures and video playback in any setting.

The PJ258D will be available in Q1 through authorized ViewSonic professional audio-visual resellers, distributors and solution providers for an estimated street price of $999.
