Acer today announced the latest addition to its projector portfolio - the P1273B and P1373WB projector series designed to meet different usage scenarios. The new Acer projectors come with built-in USB projection functionality, making the office or entertainment truly mobile. Packing a set of features designed to deliver optimal performance and crystal clear images in any room, these projectors make an excellent choice for SMB, SOHO, and education.
With built-in USB plug and play support, the projectors can instantly display movies, videos, family pictures or games without using a PC. In addition, Office and PDF Document Reader support means your office becomes even more mobile, as the P1273B/P1373WB can project Office or PDF files via built-in USB reader without having to use a PC.
For users who want more than 2D images, the projectors enable a great cinematic experience and immersive 3D games. Just connect a 3D-capable gaming console, a 3D PC or a Blu-ray Disc™ player via HDMI®.
The P1XXX projector series provide excellent brightness (up to 3100 ANSI Lumens) and a contrast ratio of up to 17000:1, ensuring exceptionally bright images and high impact projection performance. The Native XGA or WXGA resolution renders ultra-sharp images and great looking presentations and permits the reproduction of high definition content.
The projectors offer a variety of video input support, for greater versatility. The HDMI® port delivers uncompressed digital signals and multi-channel audio, providing easy connectivity for high-definition presentations and entertainment. The P1XXX projectors are also equipped with a D-Sub connector, allowing legacy video input for more flexible connectivity and instant switching.
The P1XXX series support a +/- 40° manual and auto-keystone correction. This means that vertical distortions can be automatically corrected, so that the image is always perfectly rectangular, no matter where the projector is placed. The series also feature auto ceiling-mount correction, enabling the projector to instantly rotate projected images by 180º to ensure the correct orientation when ceiling-mounted.
Brilliant image reproduction
All Acer projectors display images with vibrant colours. This is the result of Acer’s unique image enhancement technology. Acer ColorBoost II, Acer SpectraBoot and Acer ColorSafe II are designed to improve image quality, making colours richer and more lifelike while preserving their fidelity over time.
Acer’s projectors come with built-in eco-friendly features designed to reduce standby power consumption (compliant with 0.5W standby). With Acer’s leading ExtremeEco technology, the power consumption of the projectors can be reduced up to 70% and the lamp life can be extended up to 10.000 hours in ExtremeEco mode. Plus, Acer ePower Management provides quick configuration of power management options, including controls for ECO Power On/Off, High Altitude mode and Auto Shutdown.
