The WXGA-resolution PRO350W Portable 3-D Multimedia Projector packs a lot of features into a surprisingly affordable package. Its 2800 lumens of projection power combined with its 3000:1 contrast ratio means it will provide a rich, vivid image in medium to large rooms even with some ambient light to contend with.
The PRO350W's star attraction must surely be its Texas Instruments DMD DLP (Digital Micromirror Device Digital Light Processor) panel. (The panel is the part that forms the picture.) This 0.65" chip processes not just the three primary colors that all other chips work on, red, green and blue, but also their complements: cyan, magenta and yellow. As a result colors are so clear and lifelike that TI calls its latest version of the technology BrilliantColor.
DLP chips with BrilliantColor increase the brightness of colors by 50 percent vs. DLP chips without it. An added advantage of this chip is that it requires no filter that has to be periodically cleaned and replaced, saving you time and money.
But that's only half the story. Those millions of microscopic DMD mirrors operate so fast that they can project one image for each eye, making 3-D in your home and office a reality. You bring the 3-D glasses and programming. Your projector is ready to bring you everything from fantastic scientific visualizations to stunning 3-D movies.
Another key attraction of this projector is its versatility and compatibility. Its power supply can auto switch between inputs of 100 to 240 Volts AC at 50/60 Hz. In Standby mode it draws less than a single watt And the PRO350W's rapid power-on and shutdown is another time and money saver.
It's also compatible with about 40 PC and Mac resolution and frequency combinations so it's ideal for laptop-based business presentations.
But perhaps the business world is the furthest thing from your mind. You just want to watch some television. You're in luck. The PRO350W is compatible with video signals in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, B, D, G, H, I, M, N and SECAM B, D, G, K, K1, L standards. And it can do 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition. With an HDMI v 1.3 input the PRO350W can keep the signal in pure digital form from any source with an HDMI output. Just plug it into a cable or satellite box or Blu-ray player and you're good to go.
There's a lot to like in the PRO350W so you'll want to secure your investment. There's a control panel lock, password protection and a security bar through which you can lace a security cable (available separately).
If you're looking for projection power, rich, vivid color and versatility in a very affordable package, the PRO350W may be just the projector you're looking for.
