Acer Expands Commercial Portfolio with New Short-Throw Projector
Acer today announced the latest editions to its commercial projector portfolio – the S1213Hne and S1212 series, designed for versatility and network-control convenience. The new editions are short-throw devices perfect for smaller rooms, and an excellent choice for education and business projection scenarios.
The S1213Hne and S1212 projectors create a very big picture in a small space. The short-throw capability maximises space, allowing the projectors to be placed very close to a screen and still be able to display clear, large images. Users can have the confidence to point out details on the projected image without casting large shadows on the screen, creating better viewing comfort and an interactive experience.
3,000 lumens higher brightness enhanced by DynamicBlack technology delivers dramatically improved image contrast by adjusting dark scenes to optimal black levels while maintaining the original brightness of scenes, resulting in the most vivid images and a very high contrast ratio of up to 17,000:1. XGA resolution also helps to portray crisp and sharp details, even for fine print - image quality unrivalled for more persuasive presentations.
Packing a complete set of control over LAN features, 1-to-1 and 1-to-many, the projectors are designed to deliver optimal performance and flexible convenience. When connected to a LAN, the projectors offer all network control capabilities such as power on/off, remote projection control and online dialog with the RoomView administrator.
The S1213Hne and S1212 also come with a full range of digital connectivity options greatly increasing flexibility. The HDMI/MHL port receives uncompressed digital signals and multi-channel audio for easy connectivity to sources of high-definition presentations and entertainment. With two sets of D-Sub and Audio connectors, users can connect to two PCs for more connectivity and instant switching. With the additional bonus of a mini-USB port users can enjoy and share a variety of multimedia content.
To top this off, the projectors can be paired with a PC or A/V device that supports 120 Hz output for a flicker-free 3D experience and a complete lamp replacement can be accomplished in just a few simple steps thanks to the top-loading lamp design.
Smart pen support
Included with the S1213Hne projector is the optinal Acer SmartPen 2, which transforms the projector into an interactive collaboration center by communicating directly with the projector via RF. Writing, drawing and annotation can all be done in real time, in front of or far from the screen for complete flexibility and creativity.
All Acer commercial 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 commercial 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.
