Acer has announced its new PL and SL series projectors — the Acer PL6610 (WUXGA), PL6510 (1080p), SL6610 (WUXGA) and the SL6510 (1080p)—powered by laser light sources, with the SL series offering short throw projection in tight spaces such as classrooms, and the PL series for customers who are less space conscious. Acer claims that these projectors are designed for customers looking for a reliable, low maintenance projector solution, they are optimised for large venues and demanding commercial and educational applications.
Acer claims that the PL and SL series projectors offer good picture quality, life-like colours, and efficiency because of the laser diode. Beyond picture quality, the PL and SL projectors’ laser diodes have a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours that are far longer than traditional projector lamps. Aside from being durable, it turns on and off almost instantly, thereby saving time. The laser light engine is also said to be mercury-free, eliminating the potential pollution from mercury lamp disposal.
At a brightness of 5,000 lumens, the PL and SL series projectors, keep images sharp and clear in the daylight, from a distance, or while projecting inside a large venue. The laser light source lets viewers enjoy the colour performance with 75% NTSC wide colour gamut, creating vibrant visuals and delivering consistent colour saturation.
These projectors offer 1.6X zoom for a wide range of throw distances. Two built-in 10W speakers provide powerful sound, eliminating the need for external speakers.
The PL6610 is compatible with HDBaseT input, a standard that uses a single cable to send and receive audio and video, Ethernet, controls, and power, that helps in eliminating clutter. The signal can be transmitted through a single LAN cable for up to 100 metres. The PL and SL series projectors are compatible with the Crestron Network System so users can centrally control many projectors within one PC.
