From the simple overhead projector that only uses a light bulb and transparencies to display bigger images for an audience, to remote-controlled digital projectors that are connected to computers and notebooks for presentations and entertainment.


These projector models use the DLP technology with high-performing and heavy-duty chips, which are efficient and long lasting. Compared to other projector technologies, DLP produces better quality images and its technology uses a Digital Micromirror Device Chip (DMD).

“DLP Projector Technology is different because of its Digital Micromirror Device Chip that projects a thousand mirrors to compose a high-definition picture. Other technology makes use of LCD panels to get a colored icon,” Faith Kuo of Acer Philippines explains.

DMD chips are sealed hence, dust won’t accumulate and color decay is preventable. Thus, this type of projector requires less care. “The DMD Chip is highly durable and long-lasting which contributes to the DLP Projector’s Total Cost of Ownership,” Kuo emphasized.

The Acer ES-12 is Acer’s prime model of the DLP projector. It has a standard resolution of 800 x 600 and can be maximized to a supported 1920 x 1200 resolution. Acer’s DLP technology installed inside the ES-12 has 3000 Lumens which can display brighter presentations. Despite the brighter projection of images, the ES-12 maintains quality by also providing 1.07 billion colors and provide a contrast ratio of 20,000:1.

Meanwhile, Acer pushes its boundaries even further in the projector business with its newest X117H model. It essentially causes the same baseline features of the ES-12 but delivers more brightness and color.

“Two biggest highlight features of the X117H are its brightness and contrast ratio,” Kuo said. “It now has 3,600 brightness compared to the mainstream brightness of 3,200 Lumens and 20,000:1 contrast ratio compared to the mainstream contrast ratio,” she added.

Acer projectors support a standard screen ratio of 4:3 and a compatible aspect ratio of 16:9. These projectors have a minimum projection distance of one meter and maintain quality image at a maximum of 11.80 meters.

With a 40-degree keystone correction that automatically adjusts vertical distortions, these projectors are convenient and flexible. These products are handy and lightweight with only 2.50 kg and can be installed on the ceiling.

Besides, these products are eco-friendly and eco-chic. Standby power consumptions can be reduced by 90% and by 70% when turned on. This means Acer DLP projectors are good for the environment and for one’s budget.

Acer projectors are in demand for its occupation and educational function. “Most of the total projector market is doing from the Academe and SMB’s. The Academe comprises of nearly 54 %, while SMB’s comprise of 21% (IDC),” Kuo said.

To complete the formidable line-up of Acer DLP projectors are the: compact K138STi so you can take the cinema with you ; P6500 for a full HD experience ; S1383WHne that has a dust shield solution ; and last but not the least is V7500 which is perfect for your home theater needs.


Currently, Acer Philippines’ market share is at 32.5% as of first quarter of 2016. “We have had a formidable market share due to our strong channel management and quality-based merchandise,” Kuo shared. With these high figures, Kuo assured that Acer products, from the quality of its PCs and notebooks, “the same quality can be expected from our Projector Product Line.” These products are available nationwide.
