Microtek has announced that it is shipping its CX6 XGA DLP™ Projector in the United States. The 2,000 lumens brightness projector provides crisp, clear imaging for presentations, even in less-than-optimal lighting conditions. The CX6’s high 2000:1 contrast ratio ensures that both computer and video are rendered in exceptional detail, color and clarity.
Connections on the CX6 are clearly marked, adhering to the industry's "plug and project" standard for easy set-up. Inputs for video or graphics include DVI for direct digital connection, a DVI to VGA adapter for auto-sensing analog PC connection, component video, S-video and composite video inputs. Add to these automatic de-interlacing and built-in 2:3 film detection, the CX6 produces smooth, clean video. A video monitor loop-through output is provided for multiple display applications. The projector's built-in audio is supported via composite RCA and a stereo mini jack. An RS-232 jack is provided for service and factory firmware updates.
The CX6 measures a compact 12.9"x 3.5"x 9.4" (W x H x D), and includes a remote control that incorporates a laser pointer. The remote also offers access to PC or mouse capabilities from anywhere in the room via USB connection. The CX6 projector also comes with Kensington’s MicroSaver Security System, and a convenient customizable Power Save option that allows users to automatically extend the usable lamp life. The CX6 can be installed in a variety of ways, including traditional tabletop, rear-projection and ceiling-mount. Digital keystone correction of up to +/- 15 percent remedies distortion caused by less-than-ideal projection angles and maintains correct aspect ratio for consistent video quality.
