Optoma Launches New Ultra Short Throw Series

Optoma has just launched a new range of bright ultra short throw projectors designed for businesses, schools and colleges.

The new range includes Full HD 1080p, WXGA and XGA resolutions and are smaller, lighter and run quieter than comparable projectors.

At 3600 lumens they are ideal for teaching or meeting rooms with ambient light but are efficient with the expected lamp life in eco mode of 15,000 hours.

As well as the usual dual HDMI + MHL, VGA and composite inputs, presentations can be plugged in from a USB device and played via the projector’s built-in photo and document viewer without the need for a laptop or PC. This also supports Excel, Word, PDF and JPEG files.

All models have vertical and horizontal keystone and four corner geometric adjustment which ensures quick and accurate installation. This is ideal for uneven walls or where a projector placement is awkward or needs to be installed at an angle.

Kishan Mistry, Senior Product Manager at Optoma EMEA, said: “The new models provide the complete package for engaging learning with many new features, including two HDMI inputs, powered USB port, photo and document viewer and powerful 15W built-in speaker.

“In addition, four corner geometric adjustment cuts out the need for a separate warping processor and is extremely intuitive to use.”

The throw ratio of 0.25:1 for the 1080p model, 0.27:1 for the WXGA model and 0.33:1 for the XGA model means they can project a 100 inch image (diagonal) from just over 0.5m away. And having the projector installed so close to the screen avoids any shadows being cast across the image from the presenter.

Full support is provided for Crestron, Extron, AMX, PJ-Link and Telnet LAN commands, which allow almost all aspects of these projectors to be controlled remotely across a network. An audio input is also included which cuts out the need for additional costly audio hardware and cabling. For wireless presentations from a laptop or mobile device, the Optoma wireless WUSB adapter (sold separately) can be connected to the USB output.

The compact chassis design incorporates a built-in speaker that delivers powerful 16W audio.
