  • 10-bit processing;
  • Auto-switching lamp (2,000- to 3,000-hour lamp life);
  • A new cooling design and "AutoFilter" system, which rotates filters every 1,000 hours automatically for up to 10,000 hours before the cartridge needs replacing;
  • Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift (±50 degrees vertical);
  • Composite, S-video, component/BNC, DVI-D, and HD 15 inputs;
  • Digital keystone correction 40 degrees vertical, 20 degrees horizontal;
  • Built-in keypad; and
