The CP-X306 was one of the earlier XGA models. It has a native resolution of 2014 x 768 which would give you a native 720p resolution if used for Home Theater.
The DT00841 Lamp runs at 220W and feeds a 0.6” set of LCD panels. That gives the projector a respectable 500:1 contract ratio (respectable for 2008 when the unit was first made). In data mode, the projector can upscale to 1600 x 1200 dpi. This isn’t useful for home theater but for certain computer driver display applications it is very useful.
The Input panel is one of the most useful features of the CP-X306.
The CP-X306 also has the capabilities to support Composite,S-Video, Composite, and Dual VGA in (D-sub 15 pin). The option to use the network jack is a plus. You can then use a newer OS like Windows 10 to connect via a network, so you can skip finding a VGA cable long enough. If your needs require it, you can also control it via RS232 or USB.
