ViewSonic PJD6531w is a New 3D-ready 120Hz DLP Projector

March 2nd, 2010 · 10 Comments · General 3D News

Viewsonic has just announced the commercial availability of its latest 120Hz 3D-ready DLP projector – the PJD6531w, targeted at corporate, education and home theater users. ViewSonic PJD6531w supports WXGA resolution of 1280×800 (wide aspect, 16:10, but up to 60Hz thus not in 3D… for 120Hz in 3D the max resolution appears to be is 1024×768) and offers maximum brightness of 3000 lumens and high 3200:1 contrast ratio (dynamic, the typical contrast ratio is 2000:1). The good news is that according to ViewSonic the new projector support both NVIDIA 3D-Vision and Texas Instruments DLP Link technologies, so it means it should work with the 3D Vision drivers (need confirmation for that one though)…

ViewSonic PJD6531w supports all HDTV formats, including 720p and 1080i/p, offers extensive input options including HDMI 1.3 connector with HDCP support, and integrated 10W speakers, although you’ll probably have to stick to the analogue DSUB15 video connector for usage at 120Hz. The life of the projector lamp is rated at 4000 hours in normal mode, but if you switch to the built-in Eco Mode you’ll get up to a 6000-hour lamp life and reduced noise (29 dB in Eco compared to 34 dB in normal mode). The projector is currently available with a recommended end user price of $799 USD.

The new ViewSonic PJD6531w is already listed at Amazon for $749 USD…

    Well, take a look at the User’s manual here:


    According to the manual, Computer Modes through VGA don’t include the native resolution of 1280X800 @ 120Hz which is strange since the projector accepts 1024X768, 800X600 and 640X480 @ 120Hz. So this leaves VGA connection (and alternative 3D methods such as Edimensional dongle and glasses) out if someone wants to see in 3D “HD-Ready”.

    Aris, you are right, according to the manual the 1280×800 mode is supported only at 60HZ, there is 120Hz only up to 1024×768, which is actually 4:3.

    The PJD6531w should be 3D Vision ready, as it has an option for it under the 3D Sync menu according to the manual.

    Any fullhd projector, 3d vision ready that’s more less affordable?

    There are still no 3D-ready 120Hz Full HD DLP projectors available for 3D Vision…

    “It supports nvidia 3d vision”

    it means mo IR emitter required?

  • 6 Bloody // Mar 3, 2010 at 17:11

    It needs the IR transmitter that you get along with the 3D Vision glasses in order to use the projector with them, but for DLP Link glasses yo do not need additional hardware… just the glasses.

    “It needs the IR transmitter that you get along with the 3D Vision glasses in order to use the projector with them, but for DLP Link glasses yo do not need additional hardware… just the glasses.”

    Yes, but that is what I am trying to understand. How do you setup 3D vision with just DLP Link glasses with the Nvidia wizard?

  • 8 Bloody // Feb 12, 2011 at 12:33

    It is simple, you can’t setup 3D Vision with DLP link glasses as this is not supported by the drivers. YOu can however try to make the projector work with DLP link glasses for gaming together with the iZ3D driver.

    How do you do that?
