Acer launches hybrid laser-LED 1080p projector
Acer has launched the world’s first 1080p projector that has a hybrid laser-LED light technology, in the form of the Acer K750.
The projector improves colour saturation by 55 per cent, allowing for outstanding energy efficient projection. The use of the dual light sources not only means that the projector is free from hazardous substances, such as mercury, but it also improves colour brightness and increases the light-source lifetime to 20,000 hours in ExtremeECO mode.
The hybrid light-source technology offers extremely flexible colour settings and a wider colour gamut. The projector has a brightness of 1,500 lumens and a contrast ratio of 100,000:1, while the 1080p Full HD resolution provides excellent clarity and detail for the viewing of HDTV and Blu-ray media.
The K750 has an HDMI port for delivering uncompressed digital signals and multi-channel audio, providing easy connectivity to high-definition presentation and entertainment. It also has two connectors for multiple-PC source input, including D-Sub and HDMI.
Enhancing its eco-friendly credentials, the K750 has an instant on/off capability, which eliminates the need for warming up and cooling down periods. The Acer SmartFormat technology also instantly synchronises with wide-format displays without any resolution adjustments from the notebook, while supporting multi-format for instant projection.
