High-performance lamp technology offers reduced ownership costs plus reduced maintenance, with a recommended lamp replacement time of approx. 10,000 hours (with brightness in low mode - may vary depending on environment or how the projector is used).
Advanced energy-saving features

USB Display function for easy one-cable PC connection
Present pictures and audio* from a connected PC or Mac with a single USB cable - you don't even need to install a software driver. 
* There may be a time lag between video and audio. For low-latency applications it is recommended to use projector's line-in or HDMI-in connection.
Customised input naming labels
Define your own input labels like 'BD Player', 'PC' and 'Document Camera', making it easier to see on screen what devices are connected and being used.
