Just find a screen where to project your photos or videos: with the Acer C112 pico-projector you don’t need anything else. The C112 comes with an optional external battery that lasts two hours. You can place the projector in the best position to display fantastic visuals, relax and watch an entire movie without worrying about cables, plugs and power outlet.

What’s more, this projector sets you free from your notebook. Just plug in your USB flash drive and enjoy your multimedia on a big screen via the embedded USB Slide Show and USB multimedia functions. All these features give an entire new meaning to the concept of on-the-fly projection.

With the integrated USB port the C112 pico-projector can be easily connected to your laptop, and you can immediately display images, videos or presentations thanks to the Display over USB feature. In addition, the Acer SmartFormat technology supports a wide range of PC formats and users no longer need to worry to adjust the resolution of their notebook.

In terms of performance it’s just like having a portable cinema in your pocket. You can enjoy your multimedia with a display size varying from 38cm (15") to 254cm (100"). The 1000:1 contrast, the amazing WVGA (854 X 480) resolution and native 16:9 format ensure crystal clear, vibrant projections with quite impressive image quality. And, with the internal speaker you don’t even need to care about carrying along a separate speaker to enjoy the show!

Weighing only 220g (7.75 oz) and measuring just 137x91.5 mm, the C112 pico-projector is the ideal companion for mobile users looking for an easy to carry device for instant projection anywhere. The high portability is completed by a sophisticated matte black case that portrays refined elegance. The control pad is embedded on the top surface for easy and friendly use.

The new Acer C112 pico projector combines DLP technology with LED lamp technology, dramatically enhancing picture quality. LED technology offers several benefits over traditional lamps. First of all, it makes lamp replacement virtually unnecessary as a LED lamp lasts up to 20,000 hours; morever, the lack of breakable parts, such as filaments or tubes increases durability. Combined with DLP, LED lamp technology increases color saturation and contrast. As a result, the images displayed are more vivid and realistic.

Finally, Acer continues drive to offer greener, more environmentally friendly products, LED lamp technology is free of hazardous substances such as mercury or halogen gases and compared to a traditional lamp can reduce power consumption up to 30%.

Over time, projectors can be affected by colour decay that adds a yellowish or greenish shade to the images on screen. Now Acer’s projectors take advantage of ColorSafe and DLP® technology to ensure picture integrity even after prolonged use, making them virtually immune to colour decay.

The C112 pico-projector also helps you to save precious time. Thanks to the Quick Start feature the projector starts working within 15 seconds after you turn it on and you can leave in a hurry, too. With Acer InstantPack there's no need to wait for a cooling period; you can turn off and pack the projector promptly, so you can leave immediately.

Acer C112 pico-projector comes with 5 years warranty on the DLP chip and 1 year warranty on the lamp without hour limit.
