ViewSonic created and launched one of the first 3D compatible projectors, the PJD6210-3D. It is a 120Hz HD Ready projector with a native XGA 1024x768 resolution that is based on Texas Instrument's DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology.

The PJD6210-3D has a brightness of 2200 ANSI Lumens and a convincing dynamic contrast ratio of 2700:1; images displayed by this ViewSonic projector are particularly clear and crisp.

The ViewSonic PJD6210-3D is compatible with NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology, which involves using a computer with a video card of this technology (one of the relatively latest but yet common NVIDIA GeForce cards). With images refreshing at a rate of 120 Hz, the PJD6210 makes it possible, using NVIDIA's 3D vision polarised eyeglasses synchronised with the projector, to display alternating stereoscopic images to the left and right eyes at a 60Hz rate each, which enables smooth looking transitions.

The images comes directly from the computer's GPU, using the information used for the basic "flat" 3D rendering, which means that it works for games that were not necessarily intended to be played in stereoscopic 3D. Thus, it is possible to enjoy hundreds of video games in 3D. But note that at the time of this writing, the lack of adapted solutions makes it not possible to watch movies in 3D.

Color performance is enhanced using Texas Instrument's BilliantColor technology, which improves color reproduction, sharpness and depth of shade. The PJD6210 uses a 5-segment color (RGBWY) wheel that provides greater color accuracy than standard DLP projectors with a 4-segment color wheel.

The ViewSonic PJD6210-3D comes with a remote control.

Electronic keystone correction (+/– 40 vertical degrees) maintains a squared image (a distorted image results from a misalignment of the axis going from the projector to the screen).

The projector uses automatic signal detection to reduce setup times, and it is possible to customize the start-up screen.
