Optoma launches space-changing projection app
Ever wanted to transform a space into something fresh, exciting and amazing? Now you can with a brand-new app from projector firm Optoma.

The company’s Projection Mapper app will allow you to project multiple images and motion video onto 3D spaces - allowing you to recreate professional results, the kind you see at large, big-scale events.

With Halloween and Christmas on their way, it’s the perfect app if you’re throwing a ghoulish party or work Christmas do. It’s designed for homeowners, businesses, DJs, party planners and, well, just about anyone with an appetite for freshening up and having fun with their spaces.

Available at the App Store, Google Play or the Amazon AppStore, it’s compatible with Android, iOS and Amazon Kindle Fire smartphones and tablets and is really simple to set up. Just download it to your device and connect it via a cable or wirelessly to a smart device-friendly projector. Then let the creativity begin.

To celebrate the launch, Optoma is asking you to put together a short video showing how you’ve used the app. Make a video of the app in action, share it on Optoma’s Facebook page and the best one will win one of Optoma’s T1080e Full HD short throw projectors.

Optoma’s Joe Ahmed said Projection Mapper would allow people to get a whole lot more out of their projectors. “This app brings the engaging and unique experience of projection mapping to the masses via an affordable and extremely intuitive app tool,” he said.

And if you’re worried that your creative skills aren’t quite up to the test, don’t worry - Optoma have included a free content pack with the app that contains plenty of images and videos for you to get started with.
