How does the projector know what color the wall is that it needs to compensate for?

I would think that it would be a manual process somewhere in the menu system.

More importantly, I wish they would publish the color wheel speed, and color wheel design for these things. Then you still have to go to Projector Central (or similar) to get the throw distance and lens offset.

For $900 though, it is likely still a deal which should tempt a ton of people and Acer has been pretty decent on their home theater product.

You'll probably need to get one for your theater to pair with your anamorphic setup.

imagine how craptacular the colour accuracy will be.

1. let's guess the colour of the wall
2. then Color Boost the questionable colour
