The new PowerLite Pro G-Series includes several features that allow it to connect with virtually any system. With built-in HDBaseT for simpler installation, without the need for additional cables, signal repeaters or added labor for carrying Full HD video, audio, network and control commands, the new Pro G projectors also deliver support for Crestron®, AMX®, Extron® XTP® and Control4® Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP).

The Pro G-Series projectors are also equipped with Multi-PC Projection with Moderator4 for users to wirelessly connect up to 50 devices, including computers and iOS® and Android™ tablets and phones, and share from up to four device screens simultaneously5. In addition, the new Pro G-Series includes cloning features, which allow users to copy projector settings from one system to others using a USB thumb drive, a PC or over the network, saving time and resources for multi-location installations.

Several of the new PowerLite Pro G models offer widescreen, full HD performance (WUXGA) for presentations, videos, digital signage, and more. In addition, all models are compatible with DisplayPort connectivity for added convenience. Additional features include:

• Six optional lenses with lens shift: including rear-, middle- and long-throw lenses for complete flexibility and easy exchange
• Easy installation features: built-in edge blending, 360-degree installation flexibility
• Industry-leading service and support: long-life air filter and easy maintenance tools, plus peace-of-mind ownership with next-business-day replacement6

The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society of Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today’s high definition content, presenters can display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. For more information, visit http://www.colorlightoutput.com.
