Auto Start detects signals from a connected HDMI or VGA source, turning on the projector lamp so you're all
ready to start presenting.

Quick Power Off shortens cool-down time to just 10 seconds after switch-off at the end of a presentation saving time when you're in a hurry to the next meeting.
Presentation timer
Speakers can keep an eye on their allocated presentation time, with a count-up or count-down timer in a
corner of the screen.
Make neater notes
Pick from a choice of superimposed grid and ruled line templates to make neat handwriting and drawing
easier when you're projecting onto a white board.
Up to 10,000 hours long-lasting lamp
The energy-efficient lamp driver contributes to an exceptional lamp replacement interval of up to 10,000
hours (in Low brightness mode).
Reduced ownership costs
There's a range of energy-saving features to drive down total ownership costs. Auto Mode adjusts lamp
brightness depending on picture content. Lamp Dimming progressively reduces brightness if no input's
detected, or after a preset time. Touching the Blank button on the projector remote instantly mutes the
picture when it's not needed.
Audio out
Audio terminals allow direct connection of active speakers (not included) to suit the needs of any room.
Easy access, simple maintenance
Lamp access on the top panel of the projector simplifies lamp replacement, whether the projector's ceilingor table-mounted. There's also a sliding air filter and detachable dust cover, for easy maintenance without
having to remove the projector from its ceiling mount.
Choice of setting locks
As well as full lock mode, an additional mode allows temporary adjustment of picture settings: original
settings are restored when the projector's restarted.
