What Mobile (https://new.whatmobile.net/review-qumi-z1v-projector):
“First impressions are the Z1V is a fantastic bit of tech that provides a decent sounding speaker that is lightweight but also provides very good quality images or video footage when projected. I also found it very useful that I could use it plugged in or wireless if I wanted to use it outside.”
“…looks great a grey fabric cloth wrapped around makes look smart.”
“…great for viewing pictures as well as video. The multimedia player in this device really gives you an extension to any mobile device you might have.”
“So overall, it’s a great device that allows you to use USB-C, Micro SD slot and HDMI ports for you to use any of your devices to showcase your video, audio or pictures.”
“What makes this even better is you get up to 30,000 hours via the LED light source meaning you can use this device time and time again. Another benefit of using this projector is how easy it is to use.”
“…it’s a great product so if you invest in this it will continue to entertain over and over again. Now what I personally loved this device for was to streaming the recent Cricket World Cup outside for the whole family to watch outside in my garden.”

The Acer Smart Touch Kit turns ANY short throw or ultra short throw projector into an interactive whiteboard display. It saves on expensive whiteboards and accessories by using the Smart Touch Kit to project an interactive touch-sensitive display onto any wall or flat surface!
It means large savings as well as space savings and more flexible working as well as the opportunity for creative interactivity by projecting onto any wall, table or flat surface to make it finger (or stylus) touch interactive.
Get creative and use this tiny device instead of using a small monitor. We all know multitasking on a smaller monitor is a nightmare, so who wouldn't prefer a larger interactive work space with the Acer Smart Touch Kit
No longer will schools have to pay out for expensive interactive whiteboards in every room. The Acer Smart Touch Kit now works with ANY short throw or ultra short throw (UST) projector to offer a more cost effective solution.
Also think about the wall space saved: displaying class work around your room is made so much simpler when the wall space isn't being occupied by a massive whiteboard.
With 10 point touch capability the interactive touch kit can easily handle a busy collaboration session, and without a screen to damage you can rest easy!
So why not replace that outdated (interactive) whiteboard with the Smart Touch Kit to make classroom learning more engaging and interactive.
The Smart Touch kit is an Ideal companion to the Short throw Acer s1283e Projector or the ultra short throw Acer S1283hne projector. Both Projectors are capable of producing bright and clear images from both near and far so installation costs are drastically reduced. Alternatively you can use your existing short throw or ultra short throw projector (but not standard throw).
Acer now has a full range of 4K Projectors offering a comprehensive range of 4k options, so now it’s time to see how they perform. We have broken down the key features of each projector for this Acer 4K Home Cinema review, with an at-a-glance table and all the latest 4k terms explained.
At-a-glance comparison table of Acer 4k Projectors:
The Acer M550 projector is an excellent entry level 4k choice, only 100 lumens behind its mid range cousin the Acer H7850 which also offers an affordable cinematic experience. Both offer vertical lens shift for improved adjustability.
The Acer V7850 is what many consider the colour purist model due to its RGBRGB colour wheel. If you want life-like immersion, the fantastic colour reproductions of the V7850 are award winning. The V7850 has won awards in the press with Home Cinema Choice and T3, proving itself a market leader in the 4k projector high end range.
At the Pro level the Acer V9800 produces similarly stunning visuals to the H7850 but has more image positioning options, allowing for more precisely adjusted home cinema. Uniquely this model also is one of the projectors to offer the rare horizontal lens shift as well as vertical lens shift so you can place the projector on the ceiling or in the corner of the room with little or no skewing of the image horizontally or vertically.
Some key technologies explained:
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) definition of 4K Ultra HD (UHD, 3,840 x 2,160) states the display resolution must have at least 8 million active pixels. Acer4K Ultra HD resolution with TI XPR technology serves more than 8.3 million on-screen pixels —four times more of a Full HD. All details come alive.
HDR (High dynamic range) is a technique to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity. It preserves details in the darkest & brightest areas, and presents a similar range of luminance that the colour is close to how we see in real life. The expanded contrast & wider range of brightness produces true-to-life colour. Image comes to life with HDR compatible.
Rec. 2020 compatible
Rec. 2020, also known as BT. 2020, is the recommendation for UHDTV defined by International Telecommunications Union (ITU). With Rec. 2020 compatible, projector is able to read and translate rec. 2020 language into rec. 709 for superior colour reproduction.
Rec. 709 is a standard of HDTV. It is also the colour standard that movie direct or adopted for post-production. Thanks to the inclusion of Rec 709, Acer’s projector is able to reproduce faithfully the original colours and tones to give viewers an authentic movie-watching experience. Recreate colours exactly as they’ve been imagined by the director.
HDCP 2.2 is the specification required for HDMI ports to play full 4K video. If your HDMI port is older than V2 then you will need to check how well 4K video displays depending on your HDMI version. All the Acer projectors above have one HDMI 2.0 port which is HDCP 2.2 enabled for your 4K content.
There is now something for everyone in the Acer 4k home cinema range whether you are on a budget or looking for the best contrast ratio/features money can buy.
The award winning V7850 is also a great high end choice at a good price whilst the entry level Acer M550 and the H7850 models offer amazing value for a 4k projector.
4K has been threatening to become the next big thing in the consumer AV world for some time now, however 4K projectors have always been too big, too complex and most of all too expensive to make much of an impact in the world of consumer electronics.
Thanks to Acer, that is thankfully no longer the case! In creating the first DLP 4K projector, the V9800, the electronics giant has made an effort to bring 4K projection down to an affordable price. With the V9800 being under £4,000 on Personal Projector, it's a fraction of the cost of other 4K projectors on the market which can easily set you back an eye-watering £45,000. That's a quite remarkable difference in price, but how does the performance measure up?
In a word: great! The Acer V9800 makes use of a single DLP chip, which, for the videophiles out there, means there won't be any issues regarding misaligned panels which can affect the image quality. This means you'll get "ruthless clarity" and "blade-like detail" (Home Cinema Choice Magazine, May 2017 issue) in every frame. What's more, it's HDR10 compatible, offering high image clarity with "HDR performance that is genuinely surprising for a projector" (HCC Magazine).
Make no mistake, the Acer V9800 is a big unit that requires a proper install, but once that's done you'll be able to witness the full power of 4K projection, complete with vibrant colours, deep blacks and unparalleled detail. If you've been looking to set up the ultimate home cinema system, look no further than the Acer V9800!
"This 4K DLP debutant delivers a sometimes stunning UHD HDR performance, aided by clarity and luminance" ★★★★- Home Cinema Choice magazine
"The V9800 is a game-changer in home cinema projection." - 9/10Trusted Reviews
The biggest technology show in the UK's education sector is just around the corner and we're delighted to say we'll be attending the BETT Show for the fourth straight year. If you're attending, come and say hi - we'll be in Hall 15, at stand F354. Our focus this year is on great projector deals and portable interactivity, which could revolutionise the way you think about your interactive whiteboard. We're also have deals on large format displays (LFDs), new short throw portable projectors and wireless portable LED projectors with Android interfaces.
If you've ever wanted a large format interactive whiteboard you can fit in your bag and set up in minutes, you will definitely want to read our sneak preview of what we'll be showing at BETT!
Interactive (Portable) Whiteboards & Accessories
We have two products that will be released in the very near future that will let you turn any flat surface into a touch-sensitive interactive whiteboard up to 120" in size!
The first to be released is the Acer Smart Touch Kit, which is compatible with a number of Acer projectors (U5520B, U5320W, U5220, S1383WHne (pictured above), S1283Hne, S1283e). It's a dongle that fits onto the projector, along with an infrared sensor that you put on your projection surface, but there are a lot of features packed into this device! Although the projectors themselves are not portable the Smart Touch Kit turns any flat surface into a whiteboard with a 10-point touch screen, meaning large groups can all use it at the same time. It's also finger touch compatible, so you don't need to buy a load of expensive accessories to use it.
Ultra Short Throw Large Format Displays
Inspire students, parents and staff alike with large dynamic digital displays in your reception area, corridors, staff room, dining hall or classrooms. The real unique feature is how close this projector can sit to the wall and still be able to project a huge 120" image on any wall (even a coloured wall) so you are maximising space in small areas.
The Philips Screeneo 2.0 offers a Full HD display and 2000 lumens. Since the Screeneo sits so close to your projection surface, those 2000 lumens go much further, giving you an ultra bright display that can be seen in any light conditions. It features automatic colour correction technology, meaning you can even project onto most coloured walls without having to worry about image quality!
Projectors are evolving beyond simply being pass through devices - the new breed of projectors have WiFi, inbuilt Android OS (that works with Apple products too!) and onboard memory so you can save files and apps onto the projector. This means you don't even need a PC or laptop to project from, just set up and go! What's more, projectors such as the Pico Genie M550 Plus and the Qumi Q3 Plus (pictured below) which we'll be exhibiting at BETT, have long battery lives (the M550 Plus has up to 3 hours) so you can take a whole lesson without a single wire in sight!
Also at the show will be wireless dongles that turn any projector into a wireless projector that connect to your iPad, android device or laptop (Win 7 and 8).
The Vivitek Qumi Q6 will also be at the show along with its bigger brother the Qumi Q7 with wireless dongle.
Full HD Portable LED Projector: Vivitek Qumi Q8
The long awaited, record-breaking Qumi Q8 will also be available to pre-order at the show. Its tiny size defies belief and it offers an amazing 1000 lumens and is the smallest Full HD (1080p) LED projector in the world.
Ultra Portable Short Throw Projectors
The Acer K138ST is the latest in ultra portable short throw projection so you can get a bigger image close up to the wall. If you are tight on space in your classroom then short throw projection is a must! The K138ST benefits from an 800 lumen LED light source and offers phenomenal value, meaning it is a quality budget option.
