Vivitek is showing its HC7500A Projector here at CES 2009, claiming it to be the industry’s first 1080p, LED projector.

The HC7500A DLP projector offers 700 lumens of brightness, a 35000:1 contrast ratio, full HD (1920x1080) and widescreen capabilities.

It features a curved design and centered lens with a footprint about the size of a small laptop, making it easy for out-of-site mounting, Vivitek says.

Vivitek, which recently entered the digital signage market, says the HC7500A boasts low-energy features, including a lamp-free, LED light source estimated at more than 20,000 hours.

The HC7500A has a variety of ports, including dual, all-digital HDMI connections.

Vivitek will ship the HC7500A in early June.

MSRP: $13,999

The single-chip DLP projector offers a XGA (1024x768) resolution and a 2500:1 contrast ratio.

It also features:

  • Texas Instruments BrilliantColor technology and a 6-segment color wheel
  • Dual lamps (lamp life of 4,000 hours) and dual-lamp switching mode to ensure performance should one lamp fail
  • Vertical and horizontal lens correction

“Brightness, clarity, and functionality are the feature requests we get most often from our installation projector customers,” says Vivitek president David Chiu. “With the new D5500, we have addressed all of these expectations.”

Connectivity includes: RJ45, PC inputs (DVI-D and VGA), BNC, component, composite and S-video. It also has a USB port and an RS-232 connection.

It has a remote control and four optional short and long throw lenses. The D5500 is now available from Vivitek dealers and distributors nationwide.
