The What Else: The Eiki EK-500U projector—the flagship of the EK-500 Series—features 5,100 ANSI lumens brightness with 90 percent uniformity and a 2,500:1 contrast ratio. The projector provides native WUXGA resolution and is compatible with inputs up to UXGA and WUXGA. The system supports both analog and digital video input in all color standards up to 1080p and provides vertical and horizontal power lens shift, and digital keystone correction. The projector’s estimated lamp life is 4,000/3,000 hours (normal/eco).

EK-500U supports HDMI with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link), enabling the EK-500U to display HD video from smartphones and tablets, providing maximum versatility for a wide range of content sources.

The Eiki EK-501W projector offers 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness with 80 percent uniformity and a 2,500:1 contrast ratio. The projector features native WXGA resolution and is compatible with inputs up to UXGA and WUXGA.
