Acer to launch C250i portable LED projector along with ConceptD Pro series notebooks
Acer has announced its C250i portable LED wireless projector with stand-free multi-angle orientation and the world’s first auto-portrait mode to provide users with an effortless way to share smartphone content anytime, anywhere. The Acer C250i is a super lightweight projector that packs a punch when it comes to multi-angle viewing, resolution, battery life, and overall ease of use.
Acer C250i: Multi-angle Projection Anytime, Anywhere
Unlike other projectors limited to horizontal throws, the C250i supports stand-free multi-angle projection thanks to its unique twisted roll design. This design is not only stylish, but saves space while offering users complete flexibility in projecting their screen onto walls, ceilings, and any surface they desire– without requiring a stand or tripod. Placed on its side, users can “roll” the projector to find the best angle for viewing content on the wall or ceiling; vertical orientation supports horizontal wall throws and activates the auto-portrait mode. This innovative auto-portrait mode lets users directly project portrait video chatting or live-streaming sessions (on Facebook or Instagram, for example) wirelessly, utilizing the full projection surface without black bars on the side. Created for ultimate flexibility and everyday use in mind, the C250i’s feature set is sure to impress even the most advanced smartphone users. Keystone correction guarantees on-screen content looks impeccable from every angle.
C250i: High-Quality Full HD Resolution and Wireless Performance
Despite its compact size, the C250i supports beautiful high-definition 1080p imagery and a battery life of up to 5 hours from a single charge. Both Android and iOS users can connect to the C250i wirelessly for an effortless, cable-free experience at home or on the road. The C250i’s LED module offers up to a 30,000-hour lifespan, a wide color gamut that is 100% NTSC-compatible, 300 ANSI lumens brightness, and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio. The C250i also serves as a portable power bank to recharge phones on the go. The projector’s built-in Bluetooth speakers are rated at 5 watts for best-in-class sound when watching movies or TV shows.
C250i: An Abundance of Connectivity Options
In addition to wireless connectivity, the Acer C250i also features a standard HDMI port for connecting and viewing content on a laptop or desktop computer. USB Type-C and Type-A ports support video-out for smartphones and PCs alike, and is 100% plug and play so no additional software or drivers are needed. The USB Type-A port allows direct multimedia playback from a USB drive for an incredibly sleek and PC-free projection experience. The Acer C250i will be available in April 2020 in India.
