Acer took the opportunity at the IFA 2017 to launch two new projectors called the Acer VL7860, and the Acer P8800
The Acer VL7860 offers a 120-inch 4K UHD resolution display with 8.3 megapixel on screen thanks to XPR technology from Texas Instruments. Reaching up to 3,000 ANSI lumens and boasting 1,500,000:1 DynamicBlack contrast for clear projections. The projector supports a wide color gamut of 110 per cent of the Rec. 709 color space and is Rec. 2020 compatible, ensuring cinema-like color accuracy. The projector ensures visuals are smooth even in fast moving scenes with the AcuMotion frame interpolation system, which calculates and generates intermediate frames, inserting them into existing ones for seamless motion.
Combined with two built-in 5W speakers, the VL7860 is an ideal home entertainment package for the home cinema enthusiast. The VL7860 is world’s smallest 4K UHD laser projector featuring a compact design. Utilizing laser diode technology the projector does away with the need to replace burnt-out mercury-based lamps, saving users money and the environment. For further saving, users can engage the ECO mode to reduce power consumption and extend lamp life up to 30,000 hours.
The VL7860 offers great versatility during installation with 1.6X zoom, allowing users the flexibility to position the projector at a range of different throw distances. Users can also take advantage of the ISFccc-certified (Certified Calibration Controls) Professional Calibration mode to balance color and brightness based on the surroundings.
The Acer P8800 projector is also equipped with TI XPR technology, serving more than 8.3 million on-screen pixels – four times that of a Full HD screen. Combining this 4K UHD sharpness with a brightness of up to 5,000 lumen keeps images clear regardless of daylight, throw distance or venue size. This is all brought together with a 1,200,000:1 contrast ratio that delivers blacks and whites on screen. Along with the same AcuMotion technology in the VL7860 as well as the same Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 capabilities, these display features work together to deliver a richer viewing experience.
Easy control of the projector is provided with the Crestron Network System which allows LAN-based or multi-user control of the screen. During installation, the P8800 offers great flexibility in terms of placement and image adjustment with 1.96X motorized zoom, H/V lens shift and a central lens design.
