Eco+ Features

Eco+ technology brings together high contrast, improved lamp life and energy saving features that are easy to use while reducing power consumption.

  • Energy saving: Using the specially designed lamp modes, you can reduce the power consumption by up to 70%. Each mode also has a positive effect on the lamp life, while lowering the total cost of ownership and reducing maintenance.
  • Auto power off: To help save energy, this feature automatically turns off the projector after a set period of time if it is not being used
  • Eco AV mute: Direct your audience's attention away from the screen by blanking the image when no longer needed. This also reduces the power consumption by up to 70%, further prolonging the life of your lamp.
