Product Details:


Active iris allows you to optimize the picture for either presentations or movies. So whether you're making a presentation of watching a Blu-ray disc you'll have the best picture possible.

The X30 is not only flexible, it's convenient to use. If a projector is not exactly level you'll have a form of image distortion called vertical keystoning. The X30 can correct it automatically or you can choose to do it yourself using buttons on the remote. With input source naming you can select inputs using familiar names like "My iPod" rather than "Audio In 1." You can also save an input or feature and set it to activate with "My Button" on the remote.

Eco Mode saves you both time and money. Lumens projected and lamp wattage are two thirds of Normal Mode while lamp life doubles. Fan noise drops to a whisper quiet 30 dB while the interval between filter changes is increased.


2600 Lumens And a 2000:1 Contrast Ratio
The X30 projects an image bright enough to punch through the ambient light required to let your audience take notes.

World Ready
The X30 has a 100 – 120 V AC; 220 – 240V 50/60 Hz power supply. In addition to NTSC (the North American standard) it can handle the NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N and SECAM video standards. And it also projects in 720p, 750p, 1080i and 1125i high definition. The onscreen display is available in English, French, German and Spanish.

Input Source Naming
This projector offers input source naming so you can forget technical designations like Computer In 1 and give it a user-friendly name like "Mike's Laptop."

"My Button" Personalized Settings
You can set a number or projector functions, including which input to use, activating the Auto Keystone function, displaying system information and then activate the chosen function with a single button on the remote.

Active Iris Optimizes The Display
Select Presentation and the active iris optimizes the image for presentations. Select Theater and the active iris optimize the image for films on DVD, Blu-ray disc or from satellite or cable boxes.

Auto Vertical Keystone Correction
Once you've positioned the projection, select Auto Keystone from the onscreen display and the projector automatically corrects vertical keystone distortion due to the forward or backward setup angle of the projector. You can also adjust keystone manually using the remote control.

Eco Mode Saves You Time and Money
When operating in Eco Mode lamp wattage and lumens brightness drop by about a third while lamp life doubles from 3,000 hours to 6,000 hours. Fan noise drops from 37 dB to a literally whisper quiet 30 dB.
