Pixa Announces All-in-One DVD/DLP Projector

From Pixa’s press announcement:

For the technophile who wants all home theater components consolidated in a single package, Pixa, Inc., is introducing the Pixa DHT-100 All-in-One DLP Home Theater System — the first Digital Light Processing (DLP)-based home projector that includes a built-in DVD player.  This 8.4-pound powerhouse also features an optional 2.4G wireless 2.1 speaker kit, front and rear projection capabilities, and an MSRP of $1,999.

Pixa’s new projector-based home theater delivers crisp images ranging in size from 37” to 285”, high-quality 1800:1 contrast performance, single 0.55″ DDR DMD 800x600display technology, and both standard 4:3 and widescreen 16:9 aspect ratios.  It incorporates a Zeiss zoom lens with 1300 ANSI lumen for exceptional brightness, and it utilizes only one power cable — an unusual feature that produces plug-and-play theater.

·         A DVD player that plays DVDs, VCDs, CDs, interactive VCDs, S-VCDs, MPEG1 Layer3, and JPEG files for showing CD-based photo albums.
