London, 12th June 2008 - Acer, the third largest vendor in the global PC market (source: Gartner data, 4Q 2007) and one of the leading brands in the Video Projector market, today presented its new professional video-projector P5260i designed to offer cable-free projection in various presenting environments.
Cool and sophisticated the P5260i video-projector is characterized by a unique, elegant design with stylish surface, soft texture and smooth rounded curves. It features a handy remote control that includes the Empowering Key, for faster access to Acer Empowering Technology tools, and laser pointer, mouse and page up/down functionalities. To enhance presentations the P5260i can connect to the Internet or corporate intranet to retrieve interactive content.
Thanks to its native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution the P5260i presents sharp, crisp details, while 2700 ANSI Lumens brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio keep the picture crystal clear even from long distance and on large screens. In addition, the DLP(r) technology displays moving images with smooth precision for extraordinary realism.
The P5260i features the latest wireless technology based on 802.11b/g protocols that supports 1080i/720p HD video projection allowing you to view ultra-sharp, seamless fast-moving videos even on large screens and offering flexibility and convenience to use the P5260i in any environment. HD streaming video projection supports a wide range of formats: MPEG1 / MPEG2 / MPEG4 / WMV9 / AVI / DivX 3.11, 4x, 5x, XviD / ASF / VOB (without encryption). In addition, the P5260i is equipped with Plug & Show token that provides installation-free wireless projection and easy compatibility for visitors' notebooks. Thanks to the Acer Quad-View technology, that divides the projection screen into four sections, allowing content from different PCs to be displayed simultaneously, multiple users can easily connect to the wireless projector.
The P5260i features a comprehensive range of source inputs, including D-Sub, DVI-D and/or HDMI(tm), offering more flexible connectivity and allowing the reproduction of high definition video (DVI, HDMI) and high quality digital sound (HDMI), while Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) guarantees network security and data integrity.
Up to 4000 hours of lamp life in eco mode saves lamp replacement costs and ensures long-term, dependable projector use. A low 25 dBA noise level and a built-in speaker enhance presentations and video entertainment audibility, making for a far more involving presentation, while Digital zoom and pan let you magnify details with ease.
Acer's video-projector range is equipped with Acer ColorBoost Technology, Acer's innovative, proprietary colour enhancement technology for DLP projectors. ColorBoost provides optimized colour performance that delivers vivid and life-like pastel images. Combining a 6-segment Colour-wheel design, a powerful image processing algorithm and the advanced Lamp Illumination technology, ColorBoost delivers an entirely new level of colour performance with brilliant colours and high contrast ratio.
