additional amplification.
Energy efficient with long-lasting lamp life up to 10,000 hours
High-performance lamp technology offers reduced ownership costs plus reduced maintenance, with a
recommended lamp replacement time of approx. 10,000 hours (with brightness in low mode - may vary

Advanced energy-saving features
Advanced lamp technology enables a range of energy-saving features. Auto Light Dimming mode saves
energy when the projector is left on without being used. Auto Picture Mode automatically adjusts light
output to suit the projected scene. Touching a button on the remote mutes the picture temporarily,
dramatically reducing power consumption.

with no lengthy waiting for cool-down.

simultaneously, while up to eight users can connect to one projector. The Projector Station for Network
Presentation application for Windows/Mac is included.

additional 'sub' projectors.
USB Display function for easy one-cable PC connection
Present pictures and audio* from a connected PC or Mac with a single USB cable - you don't even need to
install a software driver.
* There may be a time lag between video and audio. For low-latency applications it is recommended to use
projector's line-in or HDMI-in connection.
Customised input naming labels
Define your own input labels like 'BD Player', 'PC' and 'Document Camera', making it easier to see on screen
what devices are connected and being used.
