Unveiled at next@acer 2021 this morning, the Acer L811 4K projector offers HDR10-compatible 4K resolution with 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness for a clear, crisp picture from a short distance. From only 8.31″ away, users can project a 100″ image, while 1.02 feet away will project a 120-inch picture. With Acer LumiSense, content is analyzed on frame-by-frame basis and brightness levels are then adjusted dynamically for better image quality.
Smart features allow users to install streaming services on the projector and wireless cast from Android, Windows, or iOS devices. For gamers, a low input lag option allows for gaming at 240Hz at 1080p resolution. For smaller spaces, like apartments or smaller rooms, this 4K ultra-short throw projector is also equipped with two 10W speakers.
