Acing it

In one night of spectacle of sights and sounds, Acer Philippines launched its new array of DLP projectors that are aimed towards a variety of purposes and price points. Flying straight from the headquarters in Taiwan, Business Manager for Projectors of Acer’s Digital Display Business Unit Faith Kuo graced the event, starting off with a glimpse of the company’s performance in the DLP projector category. In the Philippines, Acer has been enjoying its number one status since 2010, claiming 19% of the market in terms of product shipments. Acer is also doing well in the Asia-Pacific and worldwide arena, ranking number two and three respectively.

Taking advantage of Texas Instruments’ DLP technology, Acer’s new projectors promise to deliver sharp, long-lasting, and precise image quality to classrooms, homes, and businesses. Compared with those projectors that utilize non-DLP technology, for example, 3LCD projectors from Epson, Acer claims that its DLP projectors can render better contrast ratio and color integrity, as well as smoother and sharper video performance with minimal, if not totally eliminated, ghosting. Screen door effect, the wire mesh-like grid that makes the pixilation of projected images look more apparent, is also lessened in the case of DLP projectors. In recent years, Acer launched pico projectors, which had become possible due to the miniaturization of optical systems (measured in millimetres) in DLP projectors, specifically the K335 (232 x 166mm), K138STi (240 x 147mm), K135/K132 (140 x 116mm), and the C205 (140 x 108mm). Select DLP projectors are now also capable of throwing 4K UHD content.

Here is a quick look the features and specifications of each new Acer DLP projector revealed.
