BOXLIGHT is Proud to Announce the XP-8t: A Presenter-Friendly XGA Projector Perfect for the Budget Conscious

Press Release  |  Dec 5, 2001

Class B certified projector offers extensive features coupled with a super lightweight package that won’t break the bank

Poulsbo, WA—BOXLIGHT's new XP-8t LCD projector fuses affordability with portability while maintaining the quality features necessary to help presenters perform at the top of their games. With an MSRP of $3,399, the XP-8t is the perfect solution for corporate presenters, educators and road warriors who want the most value for their dollar.

Weighing in at just 6.17 pounds, the XP-8t can be easily packed alongside a laptop, making it ideal for the presenter on the move. A lightweight stature, however, doesn't mean features have been compromised. This small-but-sure projector boasts true 1024 x 768 XGA resolution (compressed 1280 x 1024 SXGA), assuring compatibility with most of today's laptops. In addition, the lights don't have to be dimmed during a presentation with the XP-8t's 1100 ANSI lumens.

Attention to detail is what the XP-8t does best! With DRIT (Digital Realized Interpolation Technology), the XP-8t creates a resolution "free" environment by expanding (SVGA) or compressing (SXGA) the image and digitally reconstructing the picture for clean, crystal-clear results every time.

Save on lamp life with the XP-8t's power management function, which shuts off the lamp after five minutes if no signal is being received.

This FCC Class B certified unit is not only a great choice for business use, but for video applications as well. With HDTV compatibility, the XP-8t benefits from the sharpest broadcast and television signals available, while component video input allows for the best video quality possible.

Rounding out a long list of features is digital keystone adjustment, which can "square-up" an image on the screen. The XP-8t also offers digital zoom imaging, allowing presenters to enhance a portion of the screen at the touch of a button, while the manual zoom/focus makes presenting in variable room conditions a breeze.

BOXLIGHT's XP-8t is a sophisticated unit that, while effortlessly portable, packs quite a punch. Brimming with state-of-the-art features, this projector means business! With a manageable price tag, the XP-8t is the choice for busy presenters on the go.
