Unique technology improves brightness, color, and light-source lifetime


Acer Inc. today reveals the LED-laser hybrid K520. This projector uses unique hybrid LED-laser light-source technology to achieve vibrant imagery with long-lasting 2000 lumens brightness.

The hybrid LED-laser light source significantly improves color brightness when compared to high-pressure mercury lamps, and also increases the light source up to 20,000 hours. In addition, this innovative technology enables a wider color gamut to deliver better color saturation.

A number of technologies enhance image quality: DynamicBlack™ 100,000:1 contrast ratio; 2000 lumens brightness; native 1024×768 (XGA) resolution and support for up to Full HD signal deliver crisp, vibrant details and amazing color. Also, the true 24p frame rate presents true-to-master motion.

The K520 supports 3D image output, and when paired with 3D glasses, it can be used to enjoy exciting, theater-like 3D experiences at home, or lifelike 3D content for educational and commercial demonstrations.

Connectivity options include VGA, Composite Video, Composite Video/Audio for analog signals, and an HDMI® port so connections to PCs, HD players and game consoles are quick and secure.

Utilization is easy for business meetings or classroom situations because instant on/off capability lets the user turn the projector on and off immediately, without an ignition and a cool-down period. Users can even project on uneven surfaces thanks to 40° vertical keystone correction.

The K520 is equipped with Acer EcoProjection, an environment-friendly power management suite. It features ExtremeECO mode for advanced lamp power control and reduced power consumption of up to 90%. AcerEcoProjection also includes Acer ePower Management for customized power-saving configurations.

The K520 features a white lacquered surface and silver highlights. The design has rounded corners and edges, making it an attractive device for the home or office.
