Newly developed optical engine and cooling technologies have realized a brightness of 5,500 lumens, the highest brightness in their class. The new projectors feature a Picture-in-Picture Mode and a Picture-by-Picture Mode that can project two images simultaneously. With the Picture-in-Picture Mode, a smaller (sub) image can be shown within a main one, and the size and position of the smaller image can be specified in detail. With the Picture-by-Picture Mode, two images can be displayed side by side, eliminating the need to use two separate projectors.
