ViewSonic's X1000-4K LED Soundbar Projector Scores iF Design Award for Smart and Minimalistic Design

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, has scored a prestigious honor at the iF Design Awards 2022 for the company's innovative X1000-4K Ultra Short Throw Smart LED Soundbar Projector. Selected from a field of more than 10,000 products from around the world, the projector won plaudits for its boundary-pushing design and advanced visual and audio capabilities. "We are incredibly proud to have received this recognition at the iF Design Awards 2022, especially given the competitive nature of the field this year," said Dean Tsai, General Manager of Projector & LED Display Business Unit at ViewSonic. "ViewSonic has been working to reimagine what's possible with projection solutions that can blend into consumers' lifestyles and living spaces seamlessly, the X1000-4K is a combination of these efforts. The projector combines phenomenal visual detail and an immersive audio experience in a sleek industrial design, transforming a tech device into a meaningful interior artifact."

The X1000-4K is the latest string of ViewSonic products to have been recognized at the iF Design Awards. Previously, the company received accolades in 2018 for its M1 LED Portable Projector, in 2019 for its X10-4K, X11-4K Smart LED Projector, and in 2020 for the M1 mini LED Pocket Projector. The X1000-4K is an elegant solution for home cinemas—an aesthetically pleasing yet minimalist centerpiece that fits perfectly in a room. The iF Design Awards recognized the design as combining projector and soundbar in a package that blends interior design elements with high-tech appeal and having blended geometric forms and fine detailing that embrace a convergence between device and living space.
The projector boasts 4K UHD visuals and 0.25 ultra short throw ratio that allows a 100" image to be projected from just 38 cm away. It also packs in a 40 W Harman Kardon soundbar that delivers an immersive sound experience.

Featuring industry-leading LED technology, the X1000-4K offers more than bright and vivid images but also a 30,000-hour lifespan—6 times longer than traditional lamp-based units. Designed with an intuitive user interface, the projector features a range of smart features such as built-in WiFi for wireless screen mirroring, and Bluetooth connectivity for flexible audio needs.

Dolby Atmos says hi. According to Wikipedia "Atmos in home theaters can support 24.1.10 channels". I'm assuming of course that's in extremely specialized setups and not something you find on Amazon.

I'm pretty sure that's two very different target markets, just like Imac vs custom water cooling systems.

At least it's unique IMO, I've never seen this combination before.

REALLY.... where ???

Specs aside, either it's a sound bar with an integrated projector, OR it's a projector with an integrated sound bar...... y.A.w.N.....

Perhaps I'm missing something here, but can someone please explain EXACTLY how this qualifies as "boundary pushing" design....
