Product Specifications

The multi-use "Educator Series" XR-10S, with 2000 ANSI Lumens brightness and SVGA native resolution, offers high image quality and performance at a remarkably affordable price. Incorporating the latest Texas Instruments DDR DLP display technology with 3x speed, 4-segment color wheel in conjunction with TrueVision (DDP2000) image processing, the XR-10S delivers superior color quality, brightness and reliability. The projector is an ideal choice for extended-use operation thanks to multiple ultra-quiet cooling fans and extended lamp life. A full complement of inputs and outputs (including RGB-loop through, stereo variable audio line-output and RS-232C) make the projector ideal for "portable" use and higher-end integration as well.
