PHILIPS NEW BEST-OF-BREED PROJECTOR DELIVERS A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN BRIGHTNESS AND RESOLUTIONThe ProScreen 4750 Impact delivers 1000 ANSI Lumens for bright, detailed, crystal-clear images even in daylight conditions
Exceptional picture performance results from the 120W Philips UHP lamp that provides true, bright and natural colors. Light output is virtually constant, with no perceptible loss of brightness over time and an average life of approximately 4,000 hours per lamp. This performance is enhanced by the Philips LIMESCO chip which uses a full bitmapping picture process to prevent picture distortion regardless of signal source. Compatibility with a wide range of signal formats and resolutions is guaranteed due to fully automatic MultiScan data input handling, from VGA (640 x 480) to SXGA (1280 x 1024) resolutions, PAL, SECAM and NSTC. The 4750 Impact offers full connectivity to virtually any device including PCs and Macs, VCRs, DVD and laser disc players, and digital and video conferencing cameras.
"Philips has again demonstrated its global leadership in a rapidly developing market. Aesthetically pleasing, the Philips 4750 Impact stands out from the crowd in appearance as well as performance," said Hans Webbink, Philips Creative Display Solutions global marketing and sales manager.
Building on the history of Philips award winning design, this robust, compact projector offers low fan noise, a built-in loudspeaker for multimedia presentations, an intuitive graphic user interface and a backlit remote control with an integrated track ball. The Philips 4750 Impact is also ceiling-mountable to ensure maximum flexibility in meeting rooms and other locations where it may be used in a fixed position.
