Optoma Launches Projection Mapper with Competition to Transform Any Space

Homeowners and businesses, DJs and party planners can transform any space with Optoma’s ingenious new app: Projection Mapper.

It will project onto any surface in the home, retail space, party venue or event to completely transform the look and feel of the space. People can achieve, at home, that impressive projection mapped experience you only ever see at large events. And with Halloween and Christmas around the corner, it is a great time to give it a try.

For the launch, Optoma is giving away a GT1080e Full HD short throw projector for the best video of this innovative and intuitive app in action. The competition, open to UK residents, is simple. People need to create a short video of the app in action and share this on the Projection Mapper competition tab on Optoma UK’s Facebook page:

Projection Mapper can be used to beam multiple images and video onto 3D surfaces – known as projection mapping. And you don’t have to be a projection expert to use it!

Available for download on the App Store, Google Play or the Amazon AppStore, it is designed for use with a digital projector and is compatible with Android, iOS and Amazon Kindle Fire devices.

Joe Ahmed, Head of Marketing at Optoma EMEA, commented: “We‘re incredibly excited to launch Projection Mapper and proud to be leading the way with this innovative development. It allows people to get even more from their projector. This app brings the engaging and unique experience of projection mapping to the masses via an affordable and extremely intuitive app tool.”

Projection Mapper will work with any projector that can be connected to a smart device – using a compatible cable or wirelessly with a streaming dongle. And it can be used across multiple devices from smartphones to tablets.

The user-friendly interface makes it simple for absolutely anyone looking to achieve a professional result. A free content pack with multiple images and videos is included. Additional themed content packs can be purchased or users can use their own images and video content. More content packs themed around events throughout the year will be released regularly.
