Optoma Unveils New Ambient Light Rejecting Projector Screen

TV fans, gamers and those that love to watch sporting events or films will take delight in the new ambient light rejecting projector screen from Optoma – the ALR101. This high-performance front projection screen is engineered to achieve vibrant images even in brightly lit rooms.

Joe Wilkins, Head of Marketing at Optoma EMEA, commented: “We are excited to unveil our new ambient light rejecting screen. When coupled with one of our ultra short throw projectors the solution delivers an exceptional 100-inch image – even in bright ambient lighting conditions.”

Coupled with an Optoma ultra short throw projector, imagery will fill the 100-inch ALR101 screen size with the projector placed from as little as 30cm away. This makes it a neat solution for any living room and guarantees a huge picture the whole family and friends can enjoy without shadows cast from gamers or people going to fetch the popcorn.

The specialised screen surface is designed to actively reflect a projected image for high contrast and solid colour saturation while preventing ambient light from washing out the picture.

The ALR101’s narrow bezel delivers a stylish, modern look that will complement any living space. Its 0.6 gain provides wide viewing angles – perfect for gaming or watching the big game with friends. It also enables deeper black levels for fine detail in darker scenes – even with the lights on.
