Choose the brightness you need

Depending on your application or the projector environment, your iQ Pro projector can be set to operate at its highest brightness or at a reduced brightness, but with improved TCO. During the first 100 lamp runtime hours, you can choose between the following operation modes:

  • Full Power mode: The iQ Pro will be operating at 5,000 ANSI lumens (in dual lamp mode) with a 1,500 hrs lamp system lifetime.
  • Economy mode: The iQ Pro wil be operating at 3,500 ANSI lumens (in dual lamp mode) with a 3,000 hrs lamp system lifetime.

Innovative dual-lamp design for ultimate reliability

All iQ Series projectors come with an advanced dual-lamp system, providing guaranteed uninterrupted presentations.

  • Dual-lamp mode: If one lamp fails for any reason, the other lamp will keep on running.
  • Single-lamp mode: For applications where less light output is required, switch to single-lamp mode and double the lamp system lifetime (6,000 hours in Economy Mode). If one lamp fails, the innovative auto-sensing feature instantly switches to the other lamp. You can continue your presentation without going into standby mode. Furthermore, the iQ projector lamps alternate intelligently, in order to reach end-of-life simultaneously. This way you can replace both lamps at the same moment, saving maintenance time.
