For nearly 15 years, Pacific Media Associates (PMA) has collected monthly sell-through data from leading North American projector dealers, retailers, web resellers and distributors. The company’s Tracking Service family of monthly reports offers sell-through data and analysis on unit sales, true volume-weighted street prices, and inventories of front projectors for these channels.
Each month, Pacific Media Associates posts the Top 5 Lists for the following categories:
High-End (4000+ lumens) Projectors — This “Top 5″ list is compiled from data collected from PMA’s monthly Pro A/V Projector Tracking Service sample, which is made up of North American dealers and integrators. The August 2012 results show that three of the top five selling models, by unit volume, were WXGA resolution projectors. The “Top 5” selling high-end projectors in August were the WXGA NEC NP-PA550W-13ZL, the Mitsubishi XD600, the WXGA Mitsubishi WD620, the Epson PowerLite Pro G5450WU and the WXGA Epson PowerLite 1945W.
Mainstream (1000 to 3999 lumens) Projectors — This “Top 5″ list is compiled from data collected from PMA’s monthly Distributor Projector Tracking Service sample, which is made up of North American distributors. The August results, by unit volume, show that the three best selling projectors in this category were XGA resolution models. The “Top 5” August projectors were the XGA resolution NEC NP-V260X, the Epson PowerLite 93+ and the InFocus IN114. The InFocus IN112 and the NEC NP-V260, both SVGA resolution models, rounded out the “Top 5”.
New Era / Pico and Personal (sub-1000 lumens) Projectors — This “Top 5” list is compiled from data collected from PMA’s monthly Retail Projector Tracking Service sample, which is made up of North American retailers and web resellers.
