Quick start & quick cool down
Eight seconds after turning on the power, the projector is ready to display PC or video images. Powering down, the fans stop 30 seconds after turning off the power from the remote control or cabinet control panel. The projector can be stored immediately after powering down. The main power for the projector can be turned off by either pressing the main power switch or by unplugging the power cable, even during the cool down period after the projector is turned off.
Wall Colour Correction for vivid images even without a screen
Without a screen, projected images are affected because of the colour of the wall or blackboard you are projecting on to. The built-in colour correction for projecting images on a coloured wall or blackboard in this projector means that the colour tones of the projected image is approximate to those that are projected on to a white screen. The following eight colour options are available
: blackboard, blackboard (gray), light yellow, light green, light blue, sky blue, light rose, and pink.
Very quiet operation in Eco Mode
Eco Mode operation drops projector noise to 29dB for very quiet operation and extends the lamp replacement period up to a maximum of 3000 hours. In this mode, total cost of ownership can be effectively reduced. The projector can be put in to Eco Mode very easily with a button on the remote control.
Auto start
Turns the projector on automatically when the power cable is inserted into an active power outlet. This eliminates the need to use the POWER button on the remote control or projector cabinet. *To use Auto Start, first set the main power switch to "On" before plugging in the power cable.
Built-in speaker for integrated audio solutions
The built-in monaural speaker (1W) on the main unit outputs audio from computer, video, and S-video inputs.
Security function prevents unauthorized use or theft
Password access prevents unauthorized use of the projector. Once the security function is activated, a message requesting the password is displayed when the power of the main unit is turned on. It is not possible to project an image unless the correct password is entered.
