VE280X / VE281X / VE280 / VE281

Functions and Features

Direct power on, auto power on auto power off

Direct power on, auto power on and auto power off features eliminate the need to always use the power button on the remote control or projector cabinet.

Quick power off and direct power off

The quick power off function stops the cooling fan immediately after turning off the power to the projector, which makes it possible to move the projector quickly.
For a rapid shut down, the projector can be turned off without powering off the projector using the direct power off function and a power strip equipped with a switch and breaker.

Lamp life is extended to 6,000 hours (eco mode)

Carbon meter for visualising environmental impact

Carbon meter

The projector employs a ‘carbon meter’ that displays the reduced volume of carbon dioxide emissions from using eco mode.

Graphic on-screen design using icons offers intuitive operation

HDMI input port (VE281X/VE281)

The VE281X and VE281 projectors are equipped with HDMI ports, enabling them to project digital image signals in high resolution. The HDMI input also supports audio signals.

Low power consumption in power-saving (Stand by) mode

Power consumption in power-saving (Stand by) mode is 0.3 W (100-130 V AC) or 0.4W (200-240 V AC) , which is compatible with European regulation ErP Lot6 Tier2 and help to reduce the total cost of ownership.
