Acoustic fan noise is reduced compared with previous models for even quieter operation.
Save energy at the touch of a button
Just push the ECO MODE button on the projector or remote commander to instantly access a range of energy-saving settings.
Auto Dimming
Projector brightness is gradually reduced automatically if there’s no input signal, or after a pre-set time – cutting power consumption and saving energy bills. Brightness instantly returns to maximum when an input signal is detected.
Power Saving Picture Mute
Touch a button on the projector remote and the picture’s muted instantly. Another touch and the projector’s instantly powered back up to resume your presentation.
Vertical and Horizontal Keystone Adjustment
Keystone distortion of vertically up to +/- 30 degrees and horizontally up to +/- 20 degrees can be digitally corrected via the on-screen menu and/or remote commander. This allows images to be projected with their correct geometry, even when installation space is limited.
Advanced Geometric Correction
