ViewSonic Shows Off Projector with iPod Dock
DLP technology and an integrated dock lets the PJ258D blow up iPod content to your heart's content.
January 22, 2007 by Rachel Cericola

Sometimes watching video on the iPod gives me an eye headache that can only rival that caused by a Big Gulp-sized Slurpee. Doesn’t mean I am going to stop doing it, because well—I’ve paid plenty for that right.

ViewSonic takes a little strain off those peepers with the PJ258D, a high-def, “Made for iPod” DLP front projector. The unit has a docking station, which connects a video iPod directly to the projector—no computers needed. Sure you can connect your iPod to a slew of other projectors, but at under 4 pounds, this one seems pretty portable and even charges the iPod’s battery to keep you entertained for hours.

Other highlights include S-Video and VGA connectivity, 1024 x 768 XGA resolution, 2,000 lumens of brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio.
