Date Announced: 10 Jun 2010

Luminus Devices Inc., designer, developer and manufacturer of high light output PhlatLight® LEDs, today announced that its PT-39 chipset is powering Acer’s K11 second generation DLP projector, the world’s smallest projector to offer a brightness of 200 lumens. Succeeding the K10 projector, the K11 offers twice the performance in a reduced footprint of only 12.2 x 11.6 mm2, and weighing a mere 0.61 Kg. The K11 is compatible with iPhones/iPads, supports USB media sources, High Definition multimedia devices and includes a built-in card reader for fast media sharing.

The PhlatLight LED PT-39 chipset is engineered specifically for projection systems that use micro-displays ranging from 0.4” to 0.55” with individual red, green and blue LEDs. PhlatLight LEDs are larger than conventional LEDs and operate reliably at significantly higher intensity, delivering light output levels unprecedented in monolithic LEDs. Projectors illuminated by PhlatLight LEDs produce up to forty percent wider color gamut than the National Television Systems Committee standard.

“With the K11, Acer demonstrates how our customers can take advantage of PhlatLight continuous performance and efficacy improvement to shrink their designs and still manage dramatic performance improvements,” said Stephane Bellosguardo, director of global product marketing, display, Luminus Devices. “Size and brightness are critical attributes driving the fast adoption of ultra-mobile multimedia projectors and the K11 is setting new standards in that respect.”

“Thanks to Luminus’ PT-39 PhlatLight LEDs, we can offer our mobile customers a versatile second generation lamp-free projector, more compact yet brighter than its predecessor,” said Victor Chien, director of digital display business unit, Acer Inc. “The addition of versatile multimedia interfaces combined with LEDs’ deep colors makes the K11 a compelling accessory for business and entertainment applications alike.”

The PhlatLight PT-39 LEDs are highly reliable and last in excess of 20,000 hours in the K11 pocket projector. They are free of hazardous materials and fully compliant with the European Economic Community’s Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.

Luminus will be demonstrating the Acer K11 with its PT-39 PhlatLight LED chipset at Infocomm, June 9-11 in Suite 460/463 at the Las Vegas Hilton.
