Acer has announced three projectors today, two gaming focussed projectors and now the Acer L811, which is a an ultra-short throw projector that offers HDR10-compatible 4K resolution and 3,000 lumens of brightness for an incredible home-theater experience.
Capable of offering a 120-inch projection from only 0.312 meters (1.02 feet) the projector defeats the traditional space limitations of projectors.
The excellent image quality is further enhanced by a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, allowing for deep blacks, while Acer LumiSense technology analyzes content on a frame-by-frame basis then dynamically adjusts brightness levels to provide the best image quality possible. Content can also be projected in 3D at 144 Hz 24P via 3D Blu-ray
The projector seems to use Android for an anderlying OS and it comes with the Aptoide TV APP which seems like an unusual choice over Android TV and Google Play.
Users can also wirelessly mirror content via Miracast if using Android or Windows devices, or via EShare if using iOS or Android. Low input lag, an option for 240 Hz at 1080p and two built-in 10W speakers enhanced with Acer TrueHarmony™ technology enhances the quality of video and audio, while Acer’s EcoProjection technology reduces standby power consumption by up to 66% in order to extend the laser’s lifespan to 30,000 hours. The projector also supports 24/7 continuous projection, providing users with dependable and high-quality projection when they need it.
With an IP6X “dust-tight” certification, the highest grade available for solid particles, the L811 is a very durable projector that offers reliable performance even in dusty or outdoor environments. From there, users can adjust keystones and each of the projection’s four corners in order to easily accommodate existing mounts or wall space and suit their unique living space.
