Vivitek impresses with short projection distances

Two new short-throw projectors offer outstanding brightness, flexible connectivity and razor-sharp images

9 October, 2014 – Vivitek, a leading manufacturer of innovative audio-visual presentation products, introduces the DX881ST and the DW882ST, two short-throw projectors that are designed specifically for educational use. With outstanding brightness, resolutions up to WXGA and numerous connectivity options, they deliver razor sharp images and make group work a breeze.


Vivitek’s new short-throw projectors are designed to exact specifications to offer schools and educational institutions several advantages in facilitating group work. The DX881ST and DW882ST cause no shadow to be cast by lecturers and allow clear and sharp images to be shown even in bright rooms.


The two projectors are based on 1-chip DLP® technology from Texas Instruments and come equipped with WXGA (DW882ST) or XGA (DX881ST) resolution. The lamps deliver 3600 or 3300 ANSI lumens, whilst the contrast ratio of 15000:1 ensures impressive images in any classroom. Even higher resolutions, of up to WUXGA, can be projected from these models. The images can be displayed up to a size of 88” from a projection distance of just over one metre.


Lecturers are supported by sound through one microphone input, three additional audio inputs and a built-in 10 watt speaker. Through the HDMI 1.4b port, it is even possible to achieve 3D displays in the classroom.


The USB connection offers users access to NovoConnect, an optional wireless presentation tool. From December 2014, participants will be able to use NovoConnect to present their content from a smartphone, tablet or laptop wirelessly, in addition to allowing them to conveniently collaborate on and share documents.
The lamps of the DX881ST and the DW882ST have an impressive life of about 7000 hours (Dyn. Eco – Mod) and a sealed optical unit which protects the projectors effectively from dust and dirt to ensure their reliability. The operating costs of the projectors are kept low by their long-life components. Vivitek has granted educational institutions a five year warranty on the projectors.


The network interface can be controlled from a distance, ensuring that maintenance work on the projectors can be completed without effort. Secure safeguards against theft, such as the Kensington slot, security bar and PIN, have been incorporated into the projectors’ design and protected controls are also available.
