Acer launches ‘ultra-portable’ projectors
Dubai, April 6, 2010
Acer, a top PC and notebook manufacturer, has launched a range of new ultra-portable projectors, which come with built-in USB and SD card reader, and are free of hazardous substances such as mercury or halogen gases.
The Acer K11 projectors, when compared to a traditional lamp, can reduce power consumption by up to 30 per cent, a statement said.
The new projector provides full access to multimedia contents, including audio, video and pictures. It is also equipped with an HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) port that delivers uncompressed digital signals and multi-channel audio, providing easy connectivity to high-quality HD broadcasts or entertainment.
The K11 projector combines DLP (data loss prevention) and LED technologies, which enhance picture quality.
“Weighing a fraction over half a kilo (0.61 kg / 1.34 lbs) and measuring just 122x116 mm, the K11 pico-projector is one of the smallest and lightest projectors in the market today,” said Sanjeev Dua, product marketing manager, display and peripherals, at Acer.
“We are a very mobile community, and the K11 is the ideal companion for mobile users looking for an easy to carry device for instant projection anywhere,” added Dua.
LED technology offers several benefits over traditional lamps, he explained.
First of all, it makes lamp replacement unnecessary as LED lifetime lasts up to 20,000 hours; plus, the lack of breakable filaments or tubes increases durability. Combined with DLP, LED lamp technology delivers better color saturation and contrast performance, he said.
The K11 pico-projector can provide 200 ANSI Lumens brightness for clear and detailed images while a 2000:1 contrast ratio ensures crystal clear, vibrant projections, the statement added.
The Acer SmartFormat technology also supports a wide range of PC formats, including 4:3 and 16:9 displays.
Acer’s new projectors take advantage of ColorSafe and DLP technology to ensure picture integrity even with prolonged use, making them virtually immune to colour decay.
The projectors are compliant with the most up-to-date Microsoft Vista operating systems. The K11 is available across the region and is priced at $495, the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
