As the first Laser LED Hybrid projector to offer Full HD 1920x1080p native resolution, the Pro9000provides a more stable and reliable hybrid light engine for a 50% increased color performance with 1,600 lumens of brightness and a 100,000:1 ultra high contrast ratio.

"As opposed to conventional lamp-based projection, the Pro9000 employs a laser LED hybrid light engine technology. By eliminating the color wheel, our Pro9000 projector produces astonishing, razor-sharp images, while dramatically decreasing ghost images and rainbow effects," said Roger Chien, product manager for ViewSonic.
