Acer has launched a projector that delivers images of up to 300 inches on a diagonal in the home environment.

Really large pictures were previously the domain of theatres or at least public spaces, but the Acer H9500BD 3D projector allows consumers to enjoy the technology in their own home.

Despite the size of the pictures, the device is capable of providing high quality 1080p full HD images and also supports instant 2D-to-3D conversion.

Its manufacturers suggest that its specifics make it ideal for widescreen movie watching, and people might find that HDTV and Blu-ray discs are particularly suitable.

Chris White, the firm's senior director of product marketing, commented: “Home theatre enthusiasts will be thrilled that the Acer H9500BD lets them enjoy an enormous 300-inch diagonal Full HD 3D projected image in their home - a size that's much bigger than what's available to consumers with today's display technologies.”

To further improve the quality of images, the device provides a 50,000:1 contrast ratio, which displays dark and light colours at their best. The 2,000 ANSI lumens projector lamp with ColorBoost II and ColorSafe II technologies also heightens the experience.
