ViewSonic today announced that it has become the first projector manufacturer to release a projector that meets the “Designed for Xbox” specification. The company has launched two projectors, the X1-4K and X2-4K, which will be available for pre-order in Q2 2023 at an unannounced price.

Viewsonic X2-4K Projector
Viewsonic X2-4K Projector Designed for Xbox is a brand certification program launched by Microsoft in September 2020 to ensure that its products are compatible with the Xbox gaming console. Both the X1-4K and X2-4K projectors offer 4K Ultra HD visuals and can project up to a 100-inch screen. The projectors feature built-in Harman Kardon speakers that provide what is known as “theater-quality” sound.
Both projectors feature a black and green color clash in keeping with the Xbox design language. The main difference between the two pieces of hardware is that the X1-4K is a standard throw ratio projector that is typically installed in a ceiling, while the X2-4K is a short throw device designed to be placed on a coffee table or similar location and can project a 100-inch display at a distance of 1.5 meters.
