ViewSonic rolls out DLP projector with integrated iPod dock

ViewSonic today announced a new high definition, “Made for iPod” DLP front projector. The ViewSonic PJ258D features a top-loading dock for fifth-generation iPods, eliminating the need for a computer to project video content.

The $999 projector boasts a 1024×768 XGA resolution, 2,000 lumens of brightness, and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. Other connectivity options include S-Video and VGA.

“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,” says ViewSonic.
