Acer showcased its V9800 4K Ultra-HD home cinema projector during the Computex 2016 event in Taipei. The Acer V9800 is the company’s all-new 4K Ultra-High-Definition projector. This device will be able to project video in 4K (3840 x 2160 resolution), and Acer says that the colors will be spot on as well. The device is fueled by the TI 4K DMD processor, and the device delivers more than eight million pixels our way, which is four times more than 1080p projectors. The Acer V9800 has a super-resolution video engine built-in, which lets it upscale and enhance lower resolution content.
This new projector follows the Rec 709 protocol which lets it to reproduce the original colors and tones in order to give you authentic movie-watching experience. This new Acer V9800 also comes with the industry-standard sRGB mode in order to gives you high-quality contrast. Acer has talked more about the ColorPurity technology they’ve deployed here as well, that essentially combines RGBRGB color wheel with unique lamp control techniques. This technology is supposed to provide pure (well, enhanced) blue, green and red colors.
The projector itself looks really nice, though the design is not groundbreaking or anything of the sort. The company still didn’t share exact specs of this projector, nor its availability and pricing info. Acer said that they’ll share more info in the following months, and the projector is expected to become available in 2017 January in a number of regions. We do know that the device will be available in the U.S., but don’t have any additional availability information at the moment, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
