Command the Battlefield

Whether gamers are sniping hostiles in the jungle or defending the mothership from alien invaders, the Predator Z850’s 24:9 ultra-wide HD resolution (1920 x 720) expands the battlefield like never before. The Predator Z850 displays a 50 percent wider image compared to traditional 16:9 screen resolutions. This feature augments a gamer’s peripheral vision to present a competitive edge over enemies in all types of games.

Ideal for Tight Spaces

Thanks to innovative mirrorless ultra-short-throw technology, the Predator Z850 projects a 120-inch screen at a remarkably short distance of just 18.5 inches (47 cm). This means no more shadow interference at crucial moments during gameplay. A top-mounted lens and adjustable feet allow for effortless deployment without any drilling or mounting required, ideal for quick setup at LAN parties. The Predator Z850 can be packed immediately after use without requiring a cooling period and automatically performs a safety shutdown after a set time.

Laser Diode Lighting the Way

The Predator Z850’s advanced laser diode delivers bright images up to 3,000 lumens with a wide color gamut that brings games to life. An astounding 100,000:1 contrast ratio allows the projector to deliver vivid images with deep, rich blacks and incredibly crisp whites, even at massive screen sizes. In addition, its laser diode lamp lasts up to 30,000 hours , while Acer ColorBoost3D improves color performance for both 2D and 3D visuals, and Acer ColorSafe II minimizes color decay.

Freedom from Wires
Pair the Predator Z850 with an optional Wireless HD-Kit to enable 1080p lossless wireless streaming. This keeps the living room clutter-free from unsightly cables, a very useful feature in premium homes with a modern décor.

The Acer Predator Z850 projector is available in the United States for $4,999 (MSRP).
