Bongani Gumbo, product manager for LCDs and projectors at Acer, comments: "Acer's success in the South African projector market is a result of our focus on offering a complete product range with feature-packed and cost-effective projectors for every market segment – from the home-office and the travelling entrepreneur, to the large business with a big boardroom or auditorium.
"We have also focused on packing innovative technology into our projectors, such as the proprietary ColorBoost Technology which provides amazing colour enhancement for DLP projectors."
Acer ColorBoost, a standard technology in all new Acer DLP projectors, sets a new standard for image quality by providing optimised colour performance for the lifelike pastel shades that are commonly used in applications and images.
