ViewSonic, a leading producer of projectors, has launched two new series with a focus on the educational and professional markets.

The international firm is offering up its ViewSonic 7 Series projectors, which feature a range of teacher-friendly features. There are a total of five projectors in the series, all of which are 3D-ready. Implementing 3D functionality in the classroom has been found to increase interaction in a learning environment.

But the interactive aspect of these gadgets can also save money by avoiding the need to purchase an interactive white board. In fact, students and teachers can write directly onto the projected image using the PointBlank pen, which is included with the purchase.

Meanwhile, the ViewSonic Pro 8 Series allow for the projection of images in large rooms while maintaining great picture quality. The machines are therefore useful in meetings or presentations, where their ability to present Blu-ray content, HD videos and images in their true nature will also come in handy.

Brightness can be cranked up to 5,000 AINSI Lumens and the range includes a contrast ratio of 3,000:1. Despite this high level of visibility, the projector lamp life with the Pro 8 series is around 3,000 hours when the device is used in Eco-Mode.
