Acer P5260i Projector

Acer late yesterday unveiled a DLP projector in its Professional series explicitly tailored to wireless use with PCs: the P5260i takes the earlier P5260E and adds 802.11g Wi-Fi that allows it to stream media directly from a computer without needing either a cable or an adapter. The projector can natively play AVI, DivX, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, and XviD videos along with the raw VOB files normally found on DVDs; although the projector itself outputs at 1024x768 resolution, the P5260i can accept both wireless and wired feeds up to 1080i or 720p.

The system generates 2,700 lumens of brightness and a 2,000:1 static contrast ratio; it accepts DVI, HDMI, and VGA input and is one of the few projectors that can safely be switched off without requiring cool-down time. Acer says the P5260i should be available today but doesn't explain which markets receive the projector or list local prices. [via Pocket-lint]
