MISSISSAUGA, ON -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 --
Acer America today announced that its Acer S1213Hn professional series projector offering short-throw versatility is now available for customers in Canada for a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $799 CAD.
Short-throw technology delivers clear, large images of up to 195 centimetres diagonally from as little as 95 centimetres from the screen. This feature provides users with flexibility in placement options, making it ideal for projection scenarios in education, business and government.
The Acer S1213Hn projector measures just 272 - x 229 - x 104-millimetres and weighs 5.9 lbs. Compatible with Crestron® Flash, a user-friendly web-based utility for PCs, the Acer S1213Hn allows complete control of the projector via a LAN. It also works with Crestron RoomView®, a multi-user resource management program offering facility-wide monitoring, control and reporting of audio-visual resources and environmental systems.
"Our new short throw projector is an excellent choice for commercial environments with its ability to deliver vivid images from a short distance and to be controlled from a remote location," said Chris White, Acer senior director of product marketing. "Professionals will also appreciate its top-loading lamp design, which makes lamp replacement quick and easy."
The Acer S1213Hn projects crisp and clear images with a 3000 ANSI lumens brightness, 10,000:1 contrast ratio and native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution. DynamicBlack technology dramatically improves image contrast by adjusting dark scenes to optimal black levels, while maintaining the original brightness.
True colors are delivered via Acer ColorBoost II technology that leverages an optimized 6-segment color-wheel design, powerful image processing and advanced lamp illumination. Featuring ColorSafe II, the Acer S1213HN ensures colour fidelity via dynamic RGB gain control.
DLP® 3D Ready, the Acer S1213Hn can be paired with a PC or audio-visual device that supports 120Hz output and a DLP® 3D kit for a flicker-free 3D experience.
Acer's top-loading lamp design enables quick lamp replacement in just a few simple steps, even when the projector is ceiling mounted. The Acer S1213Hn also comes with multiple connectivity options that include a HDMI® port and two sets of D-Sub and audio connectors, which allow users to connect two PCs for instant switching.
Acer SmartDetection significantly reduces signal detection time and Acer SmartFormat supports all wide-format PC signals, eliminating unsupported signal issues and having to change the resolution of the PC. Instant resume allows the next user to power up the projector right after it has been turned off, while instant packing capability enables the last user to pack the projector immediately after use.
Acer EcoProjection technology reduces standby power consumption by 80 percent from 5 watts to 0.5 watts. With the Auto-ECO feature, the Acer S1213Hn projector automatically enters ECO mode if there is no signal input for five minutes, resulting in up to 20 percent further reduction in power consumption. ExtremeEco mode enables up to 70 percent power savings during periods without an input signal, extending the lifespan of the lamp and saving costs.
The Acer S1213Hn professional series projector is available at leading retailers in Canada with a limited one-year warranty(1) for a MSRP of $799 CAD.
