Acer announced a new, compact pico projector designed as a travel companion.
The projector weighs 6.34 ounces and has a foot print the size of an average smartphone(4.7x3.2x1.0 inches). The C120 is powered via USB 3.0 and offers both a 16:9 aspect ratio at WVGA resolution (854x480) or at the maximum resolution WXGA (1280x800) in a 16:10 aspect ratio.
The Acer C120 has a wide projection throw range -- it can project clearly from as close as 15.75 inches and as far as 12.14 feet away.
The projector delivers a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a luminous flux of 75 ANSI lumens, according to Acer. The LED lightsource is estimated to last about 20,000 hours.
"We've designed the Acer C120 projector to be a powerful tool for businesspeople, consultants, real estate agents and anyone who needs an ultra-portable projector that will make their presentations even more effective," said Chris White, senior director of product marketing, Acer America. "It's very convenient to use and provides a range of usage scenarios, making it the ideal companion for anyone that gives presentations on the go."
The C120 is available now for a suggested retail price of $259.
