Big-Screen Rear Projection and LCD TVs Expand Consumer Entertainment Options

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2004 - ViewSonic Corp. is further extending its award -winning NextVision® display technology into the home with the announcement of a large -screen DLP™ rear projection TV and introduction of two additions to its line of LCD TVs. The company, a worldwide leader in visual display products, is unveiling the NextVision N5600w, N3020w and N3000w at the 2004 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). These wide screen digital TVs (DTV) add to the company's growing list of consumer electronics products.

According to iSuppli/Stanford Resources, rear -projection TVs accounted for 64 percent of the DTV market in 2003, while LCD TVs will claim the largest portion of the $38.7 billion DTV market with a 41 percent share of unit sales by 2007 . Capitalizing on its worldwide visual display expertise and award -winning heritage, ViewSonic is expanding into these new fast -growing consumer electronics segments.
"Because of its display technology leadership, ViewSonic is better positioned than traditional computing or consumer electronics companies to capture a larger share of DTV growth," said James Chu, ViewSonic chairman and CEO. "Consumers want bigger pictures, better performance and greater functionality -our NextVision line delivers by combining a superior viewing experience with versatile multimedia options."
Available in the second quarter of 2004, the NextVision N5600w will feature ultra -wide viewing angles and a native resolution of 1280x720 that supports standard, enhanced and HDTV signals (480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i), making it the perfect large -screen multimedia display to showcase digital entertainment in the home.
The NextVision N3020w and N3000w offer high performance and value to consumers, while satisfying increasing demand for large, flat -screen, high -definition -ready TVs. Both products deliver excellent front -of -screen performance and a consistent, high -quality digital visual experience, regardless of the content being shown.
Visitors to the 2004 International CES at the Las Vegas Convention Center through Jan. 11 can experience ViewSonic's new consumer offerings along with the company's recently introduced convertible tablet PC, projectors, plasma screens and personal displays at booth 22427.
