Acer has announced the H6535i projector in the US for an MSRP of $699, and which will allow wireless projection of content at 1080p. The unit is a DLP LED projector which includes an HDMI input and is capable of projecting a claimed 25 foot image from a distance of up to 36 feet, with a bright 3,500 lumens output .
When pairing with a wireless dongle, the projector can receive images wirelessly from a smartphone or PC, and Miracast supports screen mirroring without installing an extra app. Connectivity options, as well as HDMI, allow for VGA and USB inputs, enabling delivery of photos or videos from Android devices.
“Priced affordably, our newest projector lets more people experience the thrill of enjoying movies and more on a big screen from the comfort of home,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America director – stationary products. “It’s bright enough for projecting content in ambient light and works wirelessly with a variety of devices.”
Other onboard features include a claimed 20,000:1 contrast ratio, a DynamicBlack for “detail” in dark scenes, and a 1.2x zoom ratio to facilitate optimum projector placements. There is also a four corner correction function for non-perpendicular projector situations.
Optional glasses are available for 3D viewing, and the integrated ColorBoost3D tech includes a 6-segment color wheel which promises to ensure better color reproduction and saturation without compromising brightness. A BlueLightShield multi-level filter reduces blue light emissions to prevent eye fatigue, while lamp life is predicted at 10,000 hours in ECO mode and up to 15,000 hours in ExtremeECO mode. There is also a 2W speaker if you’re not planning to add the unit to a permanent home theater installation. The Acer H6535i comes with a limited one-year parts and labor warranty, and you can read a complete list of specs here.
