SAN JOSE, Calif., March 21, 2014 – Acer today announced that the Acer® H5380BD home entertainment projector is available for U.S. consumers. Acer’s newest projector displays 720p HD images in the widescreen 16:9 format. It also offers 144Hz 3D support to provide terrific movie and 3D entertainment for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $549.
A 3,000 standard lumens high brightness and a 17,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio enhanced with DynamicBlack technology provide clarity for excellent readability. The native 720p (1280 x 720) resolution renders sharp HD images, while enabling the playback of high-definition content from Blu-ray Discs™, DVDs and other sources.
“Our newest projector was designed to provide consumers with an affordable option for showcasing HD movies and 3D entertainment,” said Edward Chan, product manager for Acer America. “Outfitted with a long-lasting LED lamp and power saving options, it offers a low total cost of ownership. Small and lightweight, it’s easy to move from room to room or to bring to a friend’s house for a movie night.”
The Acer H5380BD projector displays up to a 300-inch image and ensures image accuracy with deep color saturation up to 95 to 130 percent NTSC(1). As a result, it projects high-quality visuals in a wide range of natural colors. To prevent damage from airborne dust, the new projector is outfitted with an Acer dust shield system. It includes a lens shield, a sealed engine to protect the color wheel sensor and a vertical board to safeguard the thermal sensor from dust collection. It also offers an optional 3D dust filter to stop airborne dust from entering the projector along with airflow.
3D Support - Movie Quality Projection
Outfitted with Acer ColorBoost II+ technology, the projector improves color performance based on the lamp spectrum and color wheel properties. It enhances the natural color temperature to achieve color balance and content-based color brightness.
The Acer H5380BD takes advantage of ColorSafe II technology that virtually eliminates color decay. Leveraging DLP technology, the Acer H5380BD projector ensures picture integrity even with prolonged use. Outfitted with dynamic RGB gain control, it better secures color fidelity when compared to traditional DLP projectors. The extended lifespan and consistent image quality lower the total cost of ownership, translating to significant savings. It supports comprehensive wide-format signals with Acer SmartFormat technology, which eliminates signal not supported issues and having to change the resolution of a wide-format notebook.
The Acer H5380BD projector is lightweight and compact weighing just 5.5 pounds and measuring 12.4- x 8.8- x 3.7-inches. Outfitted with one 2W speaker, it delivers quality audio without having to connect to an external sound system.
