3,000 lumens shine in classrooms and meeting rooms

Uses fewer watts per lumen than other comparable projectors. And with 15,000:1 contrast (with DynamicEco), the PJD8353s is the bright choice for business and education.

Settings where the PJD8353s is the perfect solution
  • Small spaces – small to medium size rooms
  • Business – conference rooms, meeting rooms, boardrooms.
  • Classrooms –projection on whiteboards

Dual Interactive Pens for Collaborative Learning

With the optional interactive package, PJ-PEN-003, the PJD8353s becomes an interactive projector that transforms any surface into an interactive whiteboard. It also works well with standard dry-erase whiteboards.

With the dual interactive pens and the included ViewDraw2 interactive drawing software, two users can simultaneously annotate, write, or draw on the projected image to interact with the content and share ideas. The ViewDraw2 software offers other user-friendly features such as background templates, a save copy (jpg format) feature, and reveal curtain/spotlight. Users can also use the interactive pen as a wireless mouse to drag or open files.

Large, Stunning Images from Short Distances
  • With an ultra short throw lens, the PJD8353s can project a 70” 4:3 image from only 2 feet away—making it perfect for small rooms with space limitations. In addition, any blinding lights in front of the presenter, distracting shadows on the projected image, or glaring hotspots on the whiteboard, are all eliminated because the projector’s light source is closer to the screen.

DLP Technology

Advanced DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology allows you to experience crystal clear, razor-sharp and lifelike images with the same DLP technology used in Hollywood. For fast action, the response time is 1,000 times faster than similar LCD-based projectors. And with no air filters to clean or change, the latest generation of DLP-based projectors from ViewSonic is among the lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) in the industry.

BrilliantColor Technology

High color quality is one of the most important characteristics of a good projection system. The latest BrilliantColor technology delivers stunning clarity with lifelike color, sharp graphics and outstanding video performance. Unlike other technologies that use just 3 primary colors to produce the image (such as LCD), ViewSonic projectors use up to 6 separate colors. The sophisticated 6-segment color wheel enhances yellow color performance, which is essential for accurate and vivid color reproduction. With multi-color processing, the projected images are richer and more vibrant with precise details.

LAN Control & Monitoring with Crestron & AMX

IT admin can monitor, schedule, and manage the projector remotely, as well as receive projector status alerts, with the integrated Crestron e-Control system and RoomView Express management software. Because the PJD8353s is Crestron and AMX certified, IT admin can control and monitor the projector for any size campus or enterprise.

3D Blu-ray ready with HDMI

With the latest HDMI, the ViewSonic PJD8353s projector can now display 3D images directly from 3D Blu-ray players. The PJD8353s is designed to provide an amazing 3D visual experience for classroom and office environments.

Command the Attention of Your Audience

With the DynamicEco button on the remote, take command of presentations by dimming the screen brightness by 70%. This feature allows presenters to easily shift the audience's focus when the projector is not in use. When idle, the projector will auto-activate DynamicEco as well. When DynamicEco is activated, the lamp's power consumption is significantly reduced – a great energy-saving design for low total cost of ownership (TCO).

Long-lasting reliable picture quality & superior color performance

ViewSonic DLP projectors provide reliable picture quality you can trust and superior color performance you can count on, after thousands of hours of usage. Built on DLP technology, ViewSonic’s PJD8353s projector virtually eliminates image degradation known as color decay – a yellow/faded tint that LCD projectors may develop after extended use. Even after years of use, the PJD8353s will continue to produce a stunning, sharp image that lasts. 

Packed with features
  • 6-segment color wheel design improves color performance and accuracy to provide natural, vivid colors
  • Auto source detection senses the source input and syncs with your computer automatically
  • Supports wide range of digital signals from SD (480i/480p) to HD (720p/1080i/1080p)
  • Integrated 16-watt speaker ideal for impactful multimedia applications

PC 3D-Ready / 120Hz refresh rate powered DLP Link Technology

With support for DLP Link technology, you´ll have amazing 3D capabilities at your disposal. All that’s required to unlock 3D capabilities on the ViewSonic PJD8353s 3D-ready projector is ViewSonic’s PGD-series 3D active shutter glasses, 3D content, and 3D-enabled video card. Unleash a vivid 3D experience with the ViewSonic PJD8353s projector today.

Long lamp life up to 5,000 hours*

The new advanced lamp technology from ViewSonic extends the lamp life up to 5,000 hours and saves you on replacement lamp costs.

Environmentally friendly Eco-mode saves money and power

With only a slight 20% decrease in brightness, the Eco-mode function can extend the life of your lamp by almost 50% and up to 5,000 hours in some cases. Other benefits of Eco-mode operation include reduced power consumption, as well as less heat and audible noise output. It´s good for the environment and great for your budget. The Eco-mode function will definitely help lower your total cost of ownership (TCO).

Peace of mind with industry-leading warranty

Backed by our 25-year reputation for quality and reliability, ViewSonic offers one of the industry´s best overall projector warranties with 3-year limited parts and labor, 1-year lamp, and first year free Express Exchange service***. Don´t be fooled by the seemingly longer warranties out there in the market that exclude the more vulnerable systems and moving parts of a projector

The Latest and Greatest Education-Friendly Tech Tools

The Latest and Greatest Education-Friendly Tech Tools

The latest short-throw projector for schools is ViewSonic's PJD8353s, which puts up a nearly 6-foot XGA image only 24 inches from the screen. The $1,400 unit includes an infrared interactive pen that allows students and teachers to collaborate on the board. - Brian Nadel, Scholastic

Innovative Projectors with Style and Substance

“ViewSonic Corp. wowed attendees (and the ChannelPro Network team) at the April 2014 ChannelPro SMB Forum with its PJD8353s XGA DLP projector…The image is a bright and bold visual treat, thanks to the 3,000-lumen lamp, six-segment color wheel, and other features. It’s even 3D. “ - Matt Whitlock, ChannelProNetwork
