COMPUTEX 2015: A look inside ViewSonic's HQ in Taipei

At COMPUTEX 2015, we’ve seen a number of brands promoting the latest in their product pipelines in massive exhibition halls. ViewSonic has done it differently, and brought us to its headquarters office in Taipei instead to guide us through some of their products. Here’s a few that we thought were especially attention-grabbing.

First up on our list was the PLED-W800 LED projector. For a projector, this is a very small thing. It’s so small that you’d probably not hesitate to take it along with you if you expect to be moving around a lot and doing presentations. It has a WXGA 1,280 x 800 native resolution suitable for 720p HD content, an MHL-enabled HDMI port, an SD card slot, a USB Type-A port and optional Wi-Fi or Miracast compatibility. All this pretty much gets all the bases covered as far as projectors go, and the whole thing measures 175 x 138 x 51.5 mm.

Then there’s the PJD5153 projector. While you’d usually expect projectors to give you good image quality and color accuracy, this one goes one step further by giving you sound quality as well. Inside the projector is a 2W cube speaker with a frequency range of 20 – 20,000 Hz.

On to monitors, we have the VX2573-shw, a 25-inch Full HD LED multimedia monitor. It’s quite the thing to look at, with what ViewSonic calls SuperClear IPS panels for rich, sharp colors at wide viewing angles, Flicker-Free and Blue Light Filter technologies, and a nice glossy finish all round.

There’s also the VP2780-4K monitor, a name that tells you its display resolution. It sports the same SuperClear IPS panel, and comes with a Color Calibration Factory Report that includes the complete information of the monitor. This ensures that it is color-accurate, making use of its ability to display up to 1.07 billion colors on its 27-inch screen.

Finally, there’s the prototype of what’s known as the VP2785-5K. As the name may indicate, it does come with a 5K resolution, 27-inch display, with pretty much the same features as the VP2780-4K. Since it’s a prototype, we may see some changes in design and specs before it goes to market.
