ViewSonic LX700-4K new projector for Xbox arrives
The ViewSonic LX700-4K projector, designed for Xbox, has been launched worldwide. The gadget uses third-generation laser phosphor technology, with a light source lasting up to 30,000 hours. The projector has a peak brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, making it brighter than the ViewSonic X2-4K, also designed for Xbox, which peaks at 2,900 LED lumens.
The LX700 can cast images from 30 to 300-in (~76 to 762 cm) wide with a 1.06-1.45 throw ratio. The ViewSonic projector has a high contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1 thanks to a 0.65" DMD chip and support for HDR and HLG. You can perfect the image with vertical lens shift, 1.36x optical zoom and horizontal and vertical keystone correction tools. While the device has a typical refresh rate of 60Hz, you can use it for 1440p@120Hz or 1080p@240Hz gaming using Advanced Settings. Plus, the gadget has a 4.2ms input lag and an HDMI 2.0b/HDCP 2.2 port.
A second HDMI eARC port on the projector allows you to connect external speakers for an enhanced audio experience. The product has a built-in 15W speaker, with other ports including USB-A, RS232 and a 3.5mm audio jack. You can now buy the ViewSonic LX700-4K projector for £997/€1,199. The device will launch in Australia in December for AU$2,999, and it appears that the gadget will arrive in the US early in 2024, though the price is unknown.
