The ViewSonic X2000B-4K UST smart laser projector retails for $3,098.99. It utilizes a single DLP chip for its 4K UHD (3840x2160) displayed resolution. In addition, its Laser Phosphor light source is rated to deliver at 2,000 ANSI lumens for up to 20,000 hours for virtually maintenance-free usage for a lower overall total cost of ownership.

Since the X2000B-4K was designed to replace a smart TV, it has some smart features end-users have come to expect from smart flat-panel TVs, including popular streaming apps like Disney+, Nick Jr., and TED TV.

The projector’s smart streaming functionality allows you to wirelessly stream

The projector’s smart streaming functionality allows you to wirelessly stream and share movies and videos from compatible smartphones, tablets, and other personal devices.

The X2000B-4K’s built-in 50-watt Harman/Kardon Bluetooth audio system means the projector does not need an external audio source. Simply select Movie, Music, or User for your audio profile, and you are all set. The X2000B-4K also supports Dolby Audio and DTS-HD. In addition, Bluetooth-in and Bluetooth-out allow you to use the X2000B-4K as a Bluetooth soundbar, or you could output the audio to your own Bluetooth headset.

The X2000B-4K may be for you if you want a smart UST projector with a great built-in audio system and smart capabilities. Place the X2000B-4K in Movie mode, set your Light Source Level to Full or Standard depending on your ambient lighting conditions, and enjoy watching your favorite movies and shows. The DMD Texas Instruments DLP chipset imager does an excellent job reproducing 4K content in HDR and SDR.
