Among other announcements that Acer made at Computex is one that’s sure to excite home theatre enthusiasts. The Acer V9800 is a 4K UHD Home Cinema Projector which features a native UHD (3840×2160) resolution and Rec 709 specification for faithful colors and tones.
The Acer V9800 will feature a TI 4K DMD processor, and the super-resolution video engine allows the projector to upscale and enhance lower resolution content. The V9800 also follows the Rec 709 protocol set by the International Telecommunications Union.
Rec 709 is an industry color specification that allows a viewing device (TV, monitor or projector) to recreate colors exactly as they’ve been imagined by the director. The Rec 709 specification digitally defines the color identity during post-production, which allows a compatible projector to recognize and decode the film’s intended visual feeling.
As a result, the V9800 4K UHD Home Cinema Projector is able to faithfully reproduce the original colors and tones of content, and in addition to that, the projector also features an sRGB mode to guarantee consistency and high-quality contrast.
Acer’s ColorPurity technology is applied to the V9800, combining a RGBRGB color wheel with unique lamp control techniques, resulting in a wider color gamut and reduced rainbow effects, allowing the viewer to experience pure reds, rich greens and deep blues for amazingly realistic viewing.
The projector also operates at only 20 dBA, allowing movie aficionados to hear even the quietest sounds and whispers, enhancing the movie watching experience. Exact pricing, specifications and availability will vary by region and we’ll keep you posted once we find out more.
