Acer releases portable C250i LED projector

November 13, 2019

Full HD resolution and 5-hour battery life.

Acer has just officially announced the C250i portable LED wireless projector that features a stand-free orientation and a world’s first auto-portrait mode. This mode allows you to share content from your smartphone at any time.

“Acer continues to show innovation in the projector market with the C250i,” said Victor Chien, President, Digital Display Business, Acer Inc. “It not only features a creatively designed form factor that allows multi-angle projection without a stand or tripod, but also a unique auto-portrait mode for smartphone content sharing.”

The C250i includes a stand-free multi-angle projection in a unique twisted roll design. This allows it to be projected on any surface without the need for any stand or even a tripod. You can use it on its side and roll it to get the best viewing angle. When placed vertically, you can project horizontal wall throws and it automatically activates auto portrait mode. This allows the projected image to be in portrait mode, suitable in using video call apps.

The C250i supports a full HD 1080p resolution along with a rechargeable battery letting you use it for 5 hours on a single charge. It’s compatible with iOS and Android devices and supports up to 300 ANSI lumens brightness along with a 5,000:1 contrast ratio.

What’s more, the C250i’s internal battery can also be used as a power bank to charge up your devices. There’s also a built-in 5-watt Bluetooth speaker along with USB Type-A and Type-C ports.

Also announced is the PL1 series of laser projectors (PL1520i/PL1320W/PL1220) made for exhibitions, tradeshows or medium-sized meeting rooms.

There’s also the Acer CastMaster Touch which is a wireless presentation system that includes stone shaped receivers and transmitters that were designed to replace cable installations. It can be controlled by touch gestures and is made to work seamlessly with the PL1 series.

The Acer C250i will be available in January 2020 starting at EUR 539 and the Acer PL1520i will be available this month in EMEA starting at EUR 1,499.
