There have been a few companies releasing sub-$1500USD 4K UHD projectors as of late, and Acer has just announced a pair of new projectors, including one which supports voice control through Amazon Alexa. The new models include the Acer V6810, one of the smallest and lightest 4K UHD projectors available and the Acer V6820i, which supports voice control via Amazon Alexa.
“It’s a priority at Acer to bring our customers innovative products that simplify and enhance their daily lives,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America director – stationary products. “Our newest projectors show our dedication to this goal by offering the convenience of a very compact design and support for hands-free operation.”
While both the Acer V6801 and V6820i feature a high 10,000:1 Dynamic Black contrast ration, support for Rec.2020 and Rec.709, are HDR-compatible with four HDR modes, and a long 15,000 hour lamp life in Extreme ECO mode, that’s where the similarities stop.
The white Acer V6810 is lighter and smaller — one of the smallest and lightest 4K UHD projectors on the market today. Weighing just under 9 lbs, the V6810 is only 13.5 x 10.2 x 4.9-inches, has an RGBRGB color wheel, 2,200 lumens, a 10W speaker, and two HDMI ports, component video, and PC audio. An optional wireless adapter allows the projector to access Internet and cloud storage or project photos, documents, movies, and videos from smart devices.
The black Acer V6820i is the second projector we’ve come across with Amazon Alexa support. Once enabling the Acer Projector Smart Home skill on your Echo or another compatible device, the V6820i can be controlled using voice commands. With integrated wireless connectivity, this projector has dual HDMI 2.0 ports, supports 3D video, and a USB port for viewing content from a USB drive. It also has two 5W speakers and a 2,400 lumens brightness level.
The Acer V6810 and the Acer V6820i 4K UHD projectors are available at online retailers with MSRPs of $1,399.99 and $1,499.99USD, respectively. Both projectors come with a limited one-year parts and labor warranty.
