Optoma Launches New Ultra-portable LED Projector For Plug-and-play Viewing On The Move

Optoma has unveiled the latest addition to its ultra-portable LED projector range – ML1050ST+.

Building on the successful ML1050ST the new model has all the benefits of its predecessor with the addition of auto focus for easy setup combined with higher brightness.

Kishan Mistry, Senior Product Manager at Optoma EMEA, said: “The ML1050ST+ brings the ultimate convenience and an easy set-up with its new auto-focus feature. Weighing in at just 450g, this 1000 LED brightness projector is perfect for individuals on the move.”

With a short throw lens, the projector can project an impressive 100” image from just over a metre away from a screen or wall. This reduces the hassles of cables trailing across the room or shadows when presenting.

The ML1050+’s casing is small and compact for easy transport in a laptop case or the carry bag provided. The auto-focus and instant power on/off provides instant plug-and-play viewing on the move. And the extraordinary life of its LEDs (30,000 hours) will ensure it stays clear and bright.

It has all the same features as the ML1050ST including a media player, native office viewer and an integrated speaker. An HDMI input enables connection to the latest laptops, PCs, games consoles or Blu-ray™ players. Microsoft Office, Adobe PDFs, photos, videos and audio files can be projected directly from the built-in memory, microSD card slot and USB connection. This makes presentations without a laptop straightforward.

The ML1050ST+ is ideal for digital signage as the projector can be mounted in virtually any orientation and can play video files directly from a microSD card as soon as the projector is switched on.

The compact model can be used for wireless presentations from a laptop or mobile device using the WUSB wireless dongle (optional) and free App: ‘HDCast Pro’. Available on Android, iOS devices, Windows and Mac OS, this app provides the freedom to wirelessly share and present Microsoft Office and Adobe PDFs, photos or videos.
