Remote. The PT-AR100U's backlit universal "learning" remote can be used to control multiple devices in your home theater.

Versatility. This projector operates from any line voltage between 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz with auto sense and auto select. It can project from a table top, upside-down from a ceiling, in front of or behind the screen, direct projection, or with the image reflected from a mirror.

Manual Lens Shift (±26% Horizontal, ±65% Vertical). The lens shift feature - sometimes called optical keystone correction - allows the projector to be placed anywhere within its offset range without distorting the image. Unlike digital keystone correction, which does the same thing electronically, the manual lens shift feature leaves no digital artifacts.

Powered Zoom/Focus Lens. This projector comes with a powered zoom lens and focus that is perfect for most applications. The projection distance should be between 1.33 and 2.69 times the screen width. Minimum image size 40" diagonal; maximum size 200"diagonal.

1-Year / 2000-Hr Warranty. You will receive the full U.S. factory warranty covering labor, materials and shipping on everything but the lamp which is covered by a 90 day warranty.
