The projector can be set up or put away quickly with the Quick Start and Quick Power Off function
The projector can project images from the connected PC or video on the screen within about 8 seconds after turning on the power. The fans stop within 30 seconds after turning off the power, so that the user can put the projector away immediately after terminating a conference or class. Furthermore, after turning off the projector, it is possible to turn off the power supply and/or disconnect the power plug from the power outlet even if the cooling fan is still operating.
Wall Colour Correction enables vivid images even without a screen
Without a screen, the projected images may be affected by the colours of the wall or blackboard. This projector has built-in colour correction for projecting images on a coloured wall or blackboard, so that the colour tones of the projected images can be approximated to those projected on a white screen. The following eight colour options are available as user selections: blackboard, blackboard (gray), light yellow, light green, light blue, sky blue, light rose and pink.
Auto Vertical Keystone Correction adjusts the trapezoidal distortion to correct the projected images (VT580 only)
If the position of the screen is too high or low, the projector must be installed at an angle, resulting in trapezoidal distortion of the projected images. The acceleration sensor built into the main unit senses the inclination of the unit in the vertical direction and then corrects for any trapezoidal distortion in the projected images automatically to project square images. (+/- 30 degrees from the projection angle) The user can set up the projector very quickly and easily since it is not necessary to correct it manually. Vertical Keystone Correction operated manually is also available on the VT480/VT58/VT48.
Eco Mode lowers noise and extends lamp life
By selecting Eco Mode, projector noise drops to 25 dB for very quiet operation (VT48/VT58). Furthermore, the lamp replacement period can be extended up to a maximum of 4000 hours (estimated, VT48/VT58). By selecting this mode, total cost of ownership can be reduced effectively. Since it can be switched to Eco Mode with the remote control as well, the user can easily change the lamp mode quickly.
Security function prevents unauthorized use or theft
By using passwords, the projector cannot be used by unauthorized persons. Once the Security function is in effect, a message requesting the password is displayed when the power of the main unit is turned on. It is impossible to project an image unless the proper password is entered.
