Projecting at 800 ANSI lumens, the PowerLite 30c sports SVGA-native resolution of 800×600 pixels and a 400:1 contrast ratio. It’s compatible with RGB, composite, s-video and component video output, as well, so it’ll work both with computers and home entertainment appliances. The PowerLite 30c also employs a “cinema filter” that enhances movie images, according to Epson.
The PowerLite 30c sports a 3-LCD projection system manufactured by Seiko Epson. The LCDs are dedicated individually for red, green and blue light, which Epson said produces brighter, richer and truer colors along with sharp black text. The system also has a 15-degree digital keystone correct system to help provide a uniformly square image, electronic zoom, multi-function remote control, and on-screen help. Equipped with Epson’s own SizeWise resizing technology, the projector supports Macs or PCs at up to 1,024 x 768 resolution.
Look for the PowerLite 30c from authorized Epson retailers for US$1,299. (Epson’s Web site had not been updated with details on the new projector as MacCentral posted this article.)
