Large high-definition displays featuring 1,280 x 800 WXGA resolution, combined with 3,600 lumens and dynamic contrast ratios up to 13,000:1, translate to stunningly bright images with sharp contrast, even in excessive ambient lighting or in sunlit rooms. The lifelike reproduction applies equally to the crystal-clear sound in any space. Choose from multiple audio modes and customise the sound of your presentation to accommodate the room, venue or audience.

  3. Present solo seamlessly on the go
    One Touch Access calls up frequently used functions while the handheld remote control gives you easy access to controls from anywhere in the room.
