ViewSonic Corp just received an iF 2022 Design Award for the company’s X1000-4K Ultra Short Throw Smart LED Soundbar Projector.
“We are incredibly proud to have received this recognition at the iF Design Awards 2022, especially given the competitive nature of the field this year,” said Dean Tsai, general manager of projector & LED display business unit at ViewSonic. “ViewSonic has been working to reimagine what’s possible with projection solutions that can blend into consumers’ lifestyles and living spaces seamlessly, the X1000-4K is a combination of these efforts. The projector combines phenomenal visual detail and an immersive audio experience in a sleek industrial design, transforming a tech device into a meaningful interior artifact.”
The X1000-4K is the latest string of ViewSonic products to have been recognized at the iF Design Awards. Previously, the company received accolades in 2018 for its M1 LED Portable Projector, in 2019 for its X10-4K, X11-4K Smart LED Projector, and in 2020 for the M1 mini LED Pocket Projector.
The X1000-4K claims to be “an interesting solution for home cinemas — an aesthetically pleasing yet minimalist centrepiece that fits perfectly in a room.” The iF Design Awards recognized the design as combining projector and soundbar in a package that blends interior design elements with high-tech appeal and having blended geometric forms and fine detailing that embrace a convergence between device and living space.
The projector claims 4K UHD visuals and 0.25 ultra short-throw ratio that allows a 100” image to be projected from just 38cm away. It also packs in a 40W Harman Kardon soundbar that delivers an immersive sound experience.
Featuring LED technology, ViewSonic also says the X1000-4K also offers a 30,000-hour lifespan.
