A built-in lithium ion rechargeable battery provides up to five hours of use without requiring a power supply and can also double as a power bank for recharging smart devices.3 In addition, this DLP® LED projector with HDMI input can project a 70-inch image from 6.5 feet, including content from a USB drive,4 an Android1 or iOS2 device as well as a Windows5 or Mac PC6 using a USB cable. Content can be viewed as a video viewer, document reader or through mirroring.7
“Professionals will appreciate the Acer C202i’s tiny form factor and being able to make presentations on the fly from a mobile device,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America director – stationary products. “It’s also as an inexpensive option for a child’s room or for enjoying on a family vacation.”
Delivering 300 lumens brightness and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, the Acer C202i delivers crisp presentations and photos in native FWVGA 854×480 resolution or at the maximum UXGA 1,600 x 1,200 resolution. It delivers deep color saturation up to 100 percent NTSC,8 while ColorSafe technology virtually eliminates color decay. Horizontal and vertical keystone correction up to +/- 20 degrees simplifies finding the right angle for the projector position and eliminating image distortion from any corner.
Thanks to instant on/off capability, customers can pack the projector and go without having to wait for it to cool. A good return on investment, it provides a long product lifespan of up to 20,000 hours in standard mode and up to 30,000 hours in ECO mode.9 It’s also outfitted with a 2W speaker and comes with a remote control, tripod and soft cover.10
