While it may not have as slim of a profile as other projectors - this one weighs in at over 26 pounds - it is packed with features to make it well worth your while.
This projector has one of the highest resolutions available at 1280x720, for an extraordinarily clear picture. To go with this is the amazing 3800:1 contrast ratio for super sharp contrast, and the 700 ANSI lumen brightness, which is powered by a 200 DC watt lamp - which nearly eliminates the flicker seen in projectors with AC lamps and provides a more consistent brightness.
With the sealed optical path and double sealed case, you don't have to worry about the Marantz VP-12S3 having a light spillover - or worry about dust getting onto the delicate lenses. The lenses themselves were specially made by Minolta for this very projector, and they provide the best sharpness. To top off the visual features, the Marantz VP-12S3 was given a large color wheel that operates at high speed to give excellent color reproduction and color saturation for the best possible picture.
You won't be distracted by a noisy fan or a crooked picture with the Marantz VP-12S3. It contains special noise canceling elements to reduce fan and motor noise, and the picture adjustment options are huge so that you can have great picture quality under all circumstances.
No matter what device you hook this projector up to, it has the flexibility of aspect modes you need to give a perfect picture - 4:3, 16:9 anamorphic OR letterbox, and pixel-by-pixel. It can also handle signals from a wide variety of sources - hook up a regular TV, HDTV, DVD player, or PC - it's your choice. The Marantz VP-12S3 gives you the options you need for a supreme viewing experience.
