By sensing the vertical inclination, the projector automatically corrects distorted images “keystones” horizontally and vertically, resulting in a crisp square image.

Advanced Technologies Ensure Image Quality
Acer leverages first-rate technologies to enhance color accuracy and sharpness. Acer ColorSafe II+ virtually eliminates color decay and leverages DLP technology to preserve picture integrity even after prolonged use. This advanced technology also uses dynamic RGB gain control to better secure color fidelity as compared to traditional DLP projectors. Acer ColorBoost improves optical color performance based on lamp spectrum and color wheel properties, which enhance the natural color temperature for optimal color balance and brightness.
