consistent, high resolution images with excellent colour accuracy and impressive reliability.
WXGA resolution

from a laptop, mobile device or DVD player.
Powerful 16W audio
The powerful built-in 16W speaker (mono) lets your audiences hear video soundtracks with no need for
additional amplification.
