Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The D968U-WT does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99); or the Viewsonic Pro9000 (£845), or the Acer H9505.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D968U-WT has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson EB-580 (£915.35), or the Viewsonic Pro9000 (£845) both of which are cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson EB-1975W (£1,296.80).

Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D968U-WT is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,800 ANSI lumens, the D968U-WT has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you want a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX600 (5,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
