Acer has launched its H9500 video projector, which offers full HD projection with a native 16:9 aspect ratio.
More importantly, it comes with a number of picture enhancing technologies on board, such as DynamicBlack which fine-tunes film scenes to achieve the deepest black levels without losing any brightness.
Vibrant colours and a contrast ratio of 50,000:1 is quoted, and True Motion technology reduces blurring in fast moving action scenes, intelligently inserting new frames to provide smoother panning. Sounds good in theory, but of course only watching a film using it will reveal if it actually works or not.
The 1080p projector also has a true 24p feature, for a full HD 24 frames per second viewing experience. ColorSafe II also means the unit won’t be affected by colour decay, Acer claims.
The H9500’s does lens shift and in terms of ports provides two of the HDMI variety. And if you’re projecting onto a wall, this device can do coloured walls thanks to a compensation feature. Although again, quite how that will work in practice, we’re not sure.
Now for the not so good news, the Acer H9500 will cost you £1700, although that does come with a one year lamp warranty and five years on the DLP chip.
