Acer presents the new S1200 video projector with ColorBoost II technology

4th December 2008 - Acer, the third largest vendor in the global PC market
(source: Gartner data, 1H 2008) and one of the leading brands in the Video
Projector market, introduces the new S1200, designed to bring engaging
presentations and visuals in schoolrooms or business environments.

A highly polished black finish and smooth rounded corners give the S1200 a
classy feel. Extremely versatile the S1200 projector features Ultra-Short
Throw Distance, a technology that allows the projector to display clear
images even if it is positioned very close to the screen. Even at a throw
distance of just 1 meter, highly detailed images can be displayed at up to
82". As a result the S1200 offers greater flexibility and maximum viewing
comfort, making it ideal for education and business projection scenarios.

The S1200 projector boasts leading-edge brightness at 2500 ANSI Lumens
ensuring exceptionally bright images no matter where it is used. Its native
1024x768 XGA resolution - that supports up to 1680 x 1050 WSXGA+ - and the
2000:1 contrast ratio ensure ultra-sharp images. Extremely silent - just
28dB in Eco Mode[1] - the S1200 also offers 3000 hours projection (lamp life
reaches 4000 hours in Eco Mode) and a built-in speaker.

The Acer S1200 supports NTSC, PAL, SECAM, HDTV and EDTV, and offers a broad
range of connections including D-sub and HDMI for easy connection to PCs,
notebooks, DVD players or games consoles. As the HDMI port supports HDCP
signals, users will be able to watch HDCP protected high-definition content.
For ease of use, the handy remote control is provided with a laser pointer
and page up/down functionality and with the Empowering Key that allows
faster access to the Acer Empowering Technology tools.


All Acer projectors offer an exceptional viewing performance that improves
any kind of content in any environment. The entire range is based on DLP, a
technology that offers enhanced contrast, sharpness and image vividness.

Building on the innovations introduced with ColorBoost, Acer developed Acer
ColorBoost II Technology, a colour enhancement technology that delivers new
improvements and presents ultra-vivid images in brilliant colours. Combining
a 6 Colour-wheel design, a powerful image processor and the advanced lamp
illumination technology, ColorBoost II delivers an entirely new level of
colour performance with brilliant colours and ColorBoost IIhigh contrast
ratios. The image processor uses Acer BestColor Tracking technology to
improve image gradation, enriching even the darkest of details, and
optimising colour temperature, thus displaying more natural colours. Input
signal consistency ensures optimised performance for all content, whereas
HSG (hue saturation gain) colour tuning tweaks the main colours for more
natural skin tones. Acer's proprietary lamp waveform design optimises
multimedia performance in bright environments.

EcoProjectionThe S1200 projector also features Acer EcoProjection, an
environment friendly management solution that reduces power consumption by
up to 50% in standby mode. If there isn't any input signal for 5 minutes,
the projector automatically enters ECO mode, thus reducing power consumption
up to 20%. Also featured in the Acer EcoProjection suite is Acer ePower
Management for customised power-saving configurations.

To improve ease-of-use, Acer has equipped its projector range with
Empowering Technology, a software suite that includes the following modules:

O Acer eView Management > adjusts your projector settings to suit any
lightning environment and any type of content. Acer eView Management
features the innovative Blackboard Mode, a utility that allows users to
instantly project onto a traditional green chalkboard, without the need to
set up a separate white screen

cord can be unplugged right after the projector is turned off, without any
resulting damage. There's no need to wait for a cooling period; the user can
pack the projector and leave immediately.
