The New S5200 3D Ready Video-projector From Acer
Remember the 3D glasses you used to get free with your cereal? Well, three dimensional viewing has come a long way since then! In fact, you've probably been hearing more and more about it these days on TV. We've even been mentioning it here on tracyandmatt.co.uk with items such as Rugby in 3D, or even the Minoru 3D webcam.
Acer has just announced their new S5200 3D Ready Video-projector. It's been marketed for the education side of the market stating that,
The new DLP 3D Ready Acer S5200 video-projector display spectacular 3D videos and images for stunning 3D lessons that will bewitch the students.
How cool would that be! I may have learned something at school if I was made to watch 3D videos!
Anyway, here is more from Acer:
The three-dimensional experience is made possible by DLP 3D Ready technology that, using high (120 Hz) refresh rates, can transform the flat surface of the room wall into a 3D screen thanks to a combination of a PC with a compatible graphic card and special 3D glasses. The possibilities unlocked by this simple solution are limited only by our imagination: exploring the incredible human anatomy or the universe in 3D detail; touring famous archaeological sites just like being there...
How does it work? To interpret a 2D image as 3D, the human brain must be tricked: each eye must see a slightly different image that the visual cortex interprets as one. DLP technology is so fast it can actually produce two images on the screen at the same time. Then 3D glasses combine the two images to create a spectacular 3D effect.
With Ultra-Short Throw capability, this projector can display clear images even if it is placed very close to the screen. At a distance of just 1 meter sharp and accurate images can be displayed with a diagonal of up to 205 cm (81"). Thanks to this feature presenters can avoid projector beams in the eyes and don't cast shadows on the screen during their presentations. As a result the S5200 offers greater flexibility and maximum viewing comfort, making it ideal for education and professional projection scenarios.
The Acer S5200 is totally compliant with the Crestron Network System, a solution offering complete control of the projector via LAN, including monitoring, remote power on/off (may be scheduled), remote projection management, including source selection and multiple-projector control.
The quality of images is warranted by top-class technologies designed to enhance colour accuracy and sharpness. The S5200 reproduces images with more natural and balanced shades, achieving truly lifelike tones, thanks to Acer ColorBoost II+ featuring an optimised 6-segment colour wheel design, a powerful image processor and an advanced lamp waveform to improve colour performance. Colour brightness is enhanced and automatically adapted to the displayed content with the aid of Acer eView Management.
Over time, projectors can be affected by colour decay that adds a yellowish or greenish shade to the images on screen. Now Acer's projectors take advantage of ColorSafe and DLP® technology to ensure picture integrity even with prolonged use, making them virtually immune to colour decay.
An HDMIT port provides seamless connection to the latest digital sources ensuring exceptional high-definition viewing. The advanced lamp technology with illumination of up to 3000 ANSI lumens a 2500:1 contrast ratio and native XGA resolution help bringing a new level of brightness, colour and clarity to the images.
Beguiling visuals are complemented by superior installation versatility. Thanks to the innovative Blackboard mode, that allows clear projection even on coloured surfaces, the S5200 does not need to set up a screen. The 40° Vertical Keystone Correction fixes vertical distortions so that the audience can always see a perfectly rectangular image no matter where the projector is placed and lastly, users can easily change the lamp module even when the projector is ceiling-mounted thanks to the Acer Top-loading Lamp design.
Up to 4000 hours of lamp life save lamp replacement costs ensuring long-term dependable projector use. The extended lifespan and consistent image quality lower the total cost of ownership and translate to big savings. Further savings are ensured by the innovative DLP chip, enabling a filter-free design for lower maintenance and operating costs
What's more, the S5200 comes with Acer EcoProjection, an environment friendly management solution that reduces standby power consumption by up to 80%. The projector automatically enters ECO mode if there isn't any input signal for 5 minutes, with up to 20% additional power savings and automatically performs a safety shutdown if it does not receive input for a certain time. Also included in the Acer EcoProjection suite is Acer ePower Management, a tool that lets you create customised power-saving configurations.
To improve ease-of-use, Acer projectors are equipped with Empowering Technology, a suite of tools designed to simplify access to simple setup, viewing and timer utilities, making you more productive and helping get the right message across first time.
Acer S5200 video-projector comes with 5 years warranty on the DLP chip and 1 year warranty on the lamp without hour limit.
