1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution
HDMIHDMI - get the highest quality image by connecting the latest in a/v equipment to the projector with HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface)
Horizontal keystone correction horizontal keystone correction - correct misaligned images with horizontal keystone correction
Vertical keystone correction vertical keystone correction - correct misaligned images automatically with vertical keystone correction
Audio pass through audio pass through - when all you need is sound and not pictures, this convenient feature lets you hear the projector's speakers whilst the rest is on stand-by - helping to preserve lamplife
Centralised reporting function centralised reporting function - using a single PC, create HTML reports for a group of networked projectors to simplify maintenance requirements
Ultra quiet ultra quiet - with a low noise level of 32db in our latest models, the internal fan is one of the quietest in its class. the audience will hear the presenter, not the operating noise of the projector
Input source naming input source naming - personalise devices and inputs to the projector - for example, re-name a device input to "tom's laptop" for easy recognition
Dual lamps dual lamps - dual lamps not only ensure a brighter, vivid image, but interruption free operation. lamps are also hot-swappable
