  • Acer today unveiled two new projectors, the VL7860, catering to the home cinema enthusiast and the P8800 more suited to public venues or larger rooms.
    The Acer VL7860 is aimed at movie buffs with its up to 120-inch, 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) 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 (dynamically adjusting lamp power to optimise black levels) the Acer VL7860 is designed to deliver on all forms of video and image content.

    The projector supports a wide colour gamut of 110% of the Rec. 709 colour space and is Rec. 2020 (also known as BT.2020) compatible, ensuring cinema-like colour accuracy. On top of that, using the sRGB colour standard, the VL7860 promises colour consistency and the elimination of deviation in colour reproduction. The projector also features the AcuMotion frame interpolation system, which calculates and generates intermediate frames, inserting them into existing ones for smoother motion

    The HDR-compatible projector (High Dynamic Range) is able to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity with expanded contrast and a wider range of brightness. As the world’s smallest 4K UHD laser projector, the VL7860 features a compact design that allows users to enjoy laser-quality visuals in a wider range of environments.

    The VL7860 offers good 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 colour 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. 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.

    Exact specifications, prices, and availability will be confirmed at a later date.
