A Gaming Projector?
Serious gamers and those that love to play games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo or the Assassins Creed franchise, will be thrilled by today’s revelation from Sagemcom – that its Screeneo ultra short throw projector, sold under Philips brand, has an incredible 16.6ms time lag and a 0.1ms response time. Proving you can game faster and better on a big screen!
Too much time lag is ‘not acceptable’ when it comes to gaming and in games where you’re facing the enemy it really can be the difference between life and death. Time lag, or input delay, is the term used for the time taken (in milliseconds) for a signal from a game controller to reach and be obeyed by the output visual device. So for instance when firing a gun or making and an evasive manoeuvre, it’s important that your onscreen character responds to your signal requests quickly.
The award winning Philips Screeneo projector has an amazing and incredible 16.6ms time lag which enables gamers to be quicker in battle or when facing a tough opponent or enemy. This plus its 100” HD screen and 0.1ms response time (which is the time it takes to refresh and image) makes it a great choice of visual technology for avid gamers.
“Many gamers are using their TV for gaming and these are simply not built for it – they’re built for TV and movie content, not high speed, multi reaction gaming,” said Mark Ivens, Marketing Manager Sagemcom UK Ltd “Most people and casual gamers won’t notice a time lag, however those that play specific games require a device that offers them a competitive advantage. The Screeneo’s 16.6ms time lag simply offers just that.”
The Screeneo is also a great choice for movies and sport. Connectivity is comprehensive with 3 HDMI ports, VGA, Ethernet, DLNA, Wifi, Bluetooth plus slots for USB sticks and an SD card. Unusually this projector also has integrated audio with 26W speakers and a sub-woofer.
The Philips Screeneo is available from Currys/ PC World, John Lewis Partnership, Maplin and other retailers.
