Lamp life is extended to about 10,000 hours with the DynamicEco function (from 5000 in normal and 6000 in eco modes) that decreases energy usage by roughly 70% to help reduce the total cost of ownership (less than 0.5W in low power and 265W maximum)- DynamicEco is automatically activated as soon as the projector is not in use and can also be managed through the DynamicEco button on the remote.
Remote control is programmable for using up to 7 projectors in the same place so you can choose and operate the projector of your choice easily and with the hotkey button you have easy access to the most often used functions. With Smart Restart function you may restart the projector from standby without having to wait for a whole power cycle and there is the Quick Power Off for switching off in seconds without doing a cooling-down cycle. The auto power on/off ensures quick startup whenever an HDMI or VGA cable is connected and will automatically shut off after a customer-specified amount of time when no HDMI or VGA, which means you can pack the unit away when you’re done with the presentation. We like its elegant and modern design with nice curves and its spectacular visuals and superior sound quality that go well beyond its price level.
