- 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;
