Optoma has launched a brand new, low power consumption projector aimed at offering energy efficient options for boardrooms and presentation installations.

The EW631 WXGA (1280×800) comes equipped with Optoma’s Eco+ technology, which brings conventional power consumption down to as little as 30 per cent. The diminished power consumption also serves to prolong the life of the projector’s lamp by as much as 70 per cent.

The model provides some 3,500 lumens of brightness, putting it on a level with many other offerings aimed at the corporate, widescreen video and presentations markets. It has a contrast ration of 10,000:1 and operates with Texas Instruments’ BrilliantColor technology, ensuring that the colour quality will remain as new for at least five years.

Its range of input and output options include dual VGA inputs (one of which accepts the Optoma optional wireless module), RS232 and audio in and out, HDMI connectivity, audio-in and RJ45 networking inputs. It also has a combined 10W speaker, offering high quality built-in sound capabilities.

The EW631 is also able to project 3D images at 120 Hz in full colour, stereoscopic 3D and has compatibility with Optoma’s 3D-XL video processor.

The projector will be available to British consumers from June 2012.
