With 2600 ANSI lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio the Epson PowerLite 1761W WXGA LCD Projector has the power required to display bright, sharp WXGA (1280 x 800) images in less-than-ideal ambient light conditions like classrooms, boardrooms or conventions. While these features alone might be enough to warrant purchasing the projector, the user-friendly design and intuitive on-screen menu reveal a multitude of advanced, efficient features.
Setup is a breeze thanks to quick start, which turns the unit on when it is plugged into an outlet. Auto keystone correction detects the tilt of the projector when placed on a flat surface, automatically adjusting it to square up the image. One of the 1761W's many attributes is portability. At only 3.7 pounds (1.7kg), the projector is as likely to move from room to room as it is to be permanently mounted.
The unit's wide connectivity includes a VGA in, HDMI and composite inputs as well as a stereo mini jack audio in. Running at a whisper-quiet 30dB in economy mode, the projector won't challenge the speaker for attention.
Finally, all of this doesn't come at the expense of the environment. The 1761W employs multiple methods to affect energy savings and confirm a shrinking carbon footprint. Quick start and quick power-off minimizes energy use during start-up, shut-down and periods of non-operation.
