Acer today released two new NVIDIA 3D Vision-Ready video projectors.
The three-dimensional experience is made possible by a combination of the projectors? DLP projection capabilities, high refresh rates and NVIDIA 3D Vision technology. As a result, the flat surface of any wall can be transformed into a 3D screen.
Delivering HD-ready 720p (1,280x720) resolution, the Acer H5360 features an advanced lamp technology with illumination of up to 2500 ANSI lumens paired with the high 3200:1 contrast ratio. Also ? it displays images in native 16:9. The projector also has a 50-120Hz vertical refresh rate.
The Acer H5360 projector has an HDMI port. So even when it?s not paired with NVIDIA 3D Vision, users get to enjoy 2D images when the projector is connected to a Blu-ray or DVD player.
Along with its HDMI port, the projector has three RCA jacks, component video, S-video mini DIN, 2.5mm audio mini-jack, 15-pin D-Sub for a PC analog signal.
The Acer H5360 projector is available now for U.S. customers for a Manufacturer?s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $699.00.
Acer X1261 Projector
The Acer X1261 projector features advanced lamp technology with illumination of up to 2500 ANSI lumens, a 3700:1 contrast ratio and a vertical refresh rate of 50-120Hz. Its native XGA resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio are ready for presentations, photos, multimedia, and more. The projector can also be adjusted to a 16:9 aspect ratio for video content such as that from Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The X1261 projector has composite video, component video, S-video mini DIN, and a stereo mini Jack.
It is available now for U.S. customers for an MSRP of $579.00.
Both new Acer projectors deliver a realistic 3D viewing experience when combined with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, which transforms traditional 2D images into stunning 3D. NVIDIA 3D Vision is a combination of an NVIDIA 3D Vision compatible computer and graphics card, and 3D Vision Kit that includes wireless active-shutter glasses and advanced software that can transform PC games into an exceptional 3D experience. The glasses, which can be worn over regular eyeglasses, can provide up to 40 hours of 3D entertainment on a single charge.
Both new projectors display images with more natural and balanced shades, and truly lifelike tones, thanks to Acer ColorBoost II+ featuring an optimized 3X color wheel design, a powerful image processor and an advanced lamp waveform to improve color performance. Further contributing to the enhanced images, the ColorSafe and DLP technology ensure picture integrity even with prolonged use, making the projectors virtually immune to color decay. The visuals are complemented by audio with an internal speaker on the new projectors with 2-watt output.
Up to 4000 hours of lamp life on the two new Acer projectors reduces lamp replacement costs.
Thanks to the wall-color compensation capabilities, the projectors display clearly even on colored surfaces, so they do not need to be used with a screen. Acer projectors correct vertical distortions of up to 40 degrees. Plus, both models can be ceiling mounted and used with the included remote control.
To improve ease-of-use, Acer projectors are equipped with Empowering Technology, a suite of tools designed to simplify access to simple setup, viewing and timer utilities. The Acer eView Management capabilities let users quickly adjust the projector settings to suit any environment and any type of content. Eight factory or user-defined presets instantly configure color, brightness and contrast to deliver best-quality images.
Acer EcoProjection reduces standby power consumption by up to 50 percent after five minutes of being idle. Additionally, it delivers 20 percent additional power savings and automatically performs a safety shutdown if it does not receive input after a time interval that can be set by the user. Also included in the Acer EcoProjection suite is Acer ePower Management, a tool that lets users create customized power-saving configurations.
The new Acer H5360 and Acer X1261 video-projectors are backed with a one year warranty on the DLP chip and 90 day warranty on the lamp.
