The LampSave Mode is designed to adjust the lamp power dynamically by content brightness level to extend projector lamp life significantly by 50%! The lamp replacement frequency is also reduced by up to 50% to lower the replacement costs.



Eco Blank Mode

All you need to do is press the "Eco Blank" button on the keypad or the "Blank" button on the remote control.You don't have to worry it's always fully lamp power consumption while you pause movie then leave.
