11 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the RLM-W12 which do not support Full HD projection, the Barco RLM-W12 supports Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-FX400U.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The RLM-W12 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the RLM-W12 do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq SX914 is also worth considering.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the RLM-W12 that we have assessed the projector brightness of, the RLM-W12's projector brightness of 10,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. The projector brightness of multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 75 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The RLM-W12 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The resolution of all data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the RLM-W12 ranges from VGA (640x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
