Optoma announces HD and 3D gaming projector
Visitors to an electronic entertainment exhibition in Los Angeles this week will catch a glimpse of Optoma’s first portable projector compatible with all current 3D gaming formats and standards.
The GT750 is the fourth model in Optoma’s GameTime range and will be unveiled at the E3 Expo. Although primarily aimed at gaming enthusiasts, the projector can also be used for watching movies, both indoors and outside.
Optoma describes it as a “milestone product” and says it has been designed with the latest 3D technologies in mind.
Combining 2,500 lumens of brightness with a short-throw lens, the projector delivers bright, large images, even in small rooms and awkward spaces, and has a built-in 10-watt stereo speaker system to capture all the in-action sound.
The GT750 offers a native widescreen 720p (1,280 x 720 pixels) resolution which accommodates the widescreen attributes of major gaming platforms, including those running 3D content on Blu-ray disks. It runs at 120 Hz but accepts Blu-ray's HDMI 1.4a 3D signal and converts it internally for display in 720p resolution 3D, meaning there’s no need for any outboard adaptor.
It is PC and Mac compatible, supports computer resolutions up to 1,920-by-1,080 pixels (HD), and accepts common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p.
