Optoma has launched a new battery-powered portable 1080p LED and DLP projector – the LH160. Intended for both business and personal use, the built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 2.5 hours of cable-free projection on a single charge. Brightness is claimed at 1500 LED brightness (which Optoma describes as being based on the perceived equivalent ANSI lumen brightness when compared to a standard lamp projector. The LED brightness rating takes into account the Helmholtz–Kohlrausch (HK) effect on the perceived brightness of colours.) The throw ratio is 1.2:1 with a fixed lens.
It can also be used to charge a mobile device.
The LH160 features two HDMI inputs and a powered USB port and wireless is supported by dongles via USB or HDMI and the USB can also connect to a smartphone or tablet for mirroring. External audio can be connected via bluetooth or via a mini-jack, but there are dual 4W speakers.
Weight is 2.2kg and the size is 278 x 191 x 54.
