Top projector manufacturer, Optoma, has launched two new installation projectors as part of its popular ProScene range.

The ProScene EX855 and EW865 XGA/WXGA 5500/6000 lumens installation projectors are designed to suit the needs of mid-range venues including boardrooms, auditoriums, live events and places of worship.

The new models comprise the range of high-tech features and capabilities that have aided the success of the ProScene family. They both have an interchangeable lens design and a built-in mechanical shutter, which allows for light to be completely blacked out having to switch off the projector.

The single chip DLP Dark Chip 3 (DC3) design allows for impeccable rendition of colour and eliminates degradation of quality of the life of the projector. They come with three, specifically designed lens options, accommodating short and long throw scenarios. The lens options can be controlled through motorised lens shift, zoom and focus controls.

The two projector have a full complement of connectivity options, including BNC, HDMI, DVI-D, component video and dual VGA inputs, and also have timer control functions and fast shutdown and start-up time, minimising the time needed to allow them to warm up and cool down.
