A new Ultra HD projector has been revealed.
Acer has announced the latest addition to its home theater projector lineup. The upcoming V9800 is a native 4K Ultra HD projector.
The projector features a UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 and is powered by a Texas Instruments 4K DMD (digital micromirror device) processor to deliver more than eight million pixels. In addition, the device uses a super-resolution video engine to enable upscaling capabilities for lower resolution content. Likewise, the V9800 follows the Rec 709 color spec and includes an industry-standard sRGB mode. Acer's ColorPurity technology is also integrated, which combines a RGBRGB color wheel with unique lamp control techniques to create a wider color gamut and reduced rainbow effects. Here's a full rundown of key features per the press release:
- The Acer V9800 projector with UHD resolution makes images come to life on the big screen by projecting movies in incredibly fine detail
- The inclusion of Rec 709 means the V9800 is able to reproduce faithfully the original colors and tones to give viewers an authentic movie-watching experience
- Operating at an extremely low noise level of 20 dBA, the V9800 allows movie aficionados to hear even the quietest whispers
Full specs and details on pricing and availability have not been announced yet. Beyond the Acer V9800, Sony also offers several 4K Ultra HD projectors. Models include the VPL-VW365ES ($9,999) and the VPL-VW665ES ($14,999).
The VPL-VW365ES is a native 4K projector with an SXRD panel, Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOs engine, Motionflow picture technology, and a built-in RF 3D transmitter. Likewise, the projector includes HDMI connectivity with HDCP 2.2 compliancy and a long-lasting lamp for up to 6,000 hours of performance. In addition, a recent HDR update will allow the projector to display supported high dynamic range content, offering superior contrast, highlights, and shadows. Likewise, the VPL-VW665ES includes integrated HDR support.
