Philips bCool XG1 Projector


Two weeks ago, the new Philips bCool XG1 showed up at my office and I put it through the ringer -- so to speak. In a market where most of the projectors out there are re-marketed and re-branded models from a few key manufacturers, I was curious how...

Product Specifications

A Philips bCool XG1 projector is the best possible partner for your presentations. It connects seamlessly to your laptop or personal electronic organizer. Looks great. Is simple to use. Projects large, bright images of astonishing clarity. And then slips into a briefcase, ready for the next appointment. This truly eye-catching piece of equipment gets your presentation off to a flying start even before you switch it on. Its exceptionally compact housing has a high-tech, sleek, innovative feel. You'll create an instant impression just by putting it on the conference table - or wherever else you want to use it. Once the bCool is powered up, your audience will be even more impressed. These projectors achieve extraordinary levels of brightness and contrast (2000: 1) for their size - so you can clearly project in even the brightest surroundings. Image definition is razor-sharp: even the most intricate diagrams are shown with total clarity. And, for situations where you don't need such projection power, you can choose to dim the lamp for even quieter operation. What's more, you can move this presentation power around. The XG1 is lightweight, compact and portable; ideal for taking to a customer site in a small shoulder bag or briefcase. It is robust enough to withstand the movement and knocks that are part of life on the move. Using the bCool is simple. There is a wide choice of media inputs. An innovative plug and play set-up feature automatically detects the connected source and adjusts the projector accordingly. On top of that, the intuitive controls and logical on-screen menu take all the stress out of preparation and use. Of course, you can also personalize settings to suit your preferences. The bCool basically takes care of everything, so you can concentrate on your presentation. Attractive as your bCool may be to you and your customers, SecurityMax makes it extremely unattractive to potential thieves. A non-erasable start-up screen shows clearly who the rightful owner is. The projector can also be programmed for shut down after a certain period - and only your PIN code reactivates it. A warning sticker deters anyone with the wrong idea from even trying, and a special slot for a Kensington lock helps reduce the chance of theft even further.
