Optoma releases two new projectors, including world first
Optoma, a world leading manufacturer of video and audio products, has released two new innovative single-chip DLP laser phosphor projectors at InfoComm 2016. The products are ideal for both the ProAV and home markets, according to the company.

The as yet unnamed world's first DLP 4K laser phosphor ultra-short-throw projector can display a 100-inch image from just two inches away. It provides 3,300 lumens of brightness and can display more than eight million pixels on the screen, thanks to its 4K resolution. This ensures high image quality and detail. The new model also supports the latest Android operating system, which enables collaboration via the connection of multiple devices.

The Optoma ZU510T was also released at the Las Vegas show, and is one of the few WUXGA laser phosphor DLP projectors in the 4,000 to 6,000-lumen brightness range. Designed for complete flexibility and reliability, the projector comes with a fixed lens that has both horizontal and vertical lens shift, which allows a unique 1.2:1 - 2.16:1 throw ratio and a zoom of 1.8x. This allows it to have a wide range of interchangeable lens capabilities.

The ZU510T also allows for integration into a number of situations thanks to its two speakers and range of inputs, including two HDMI and HDBaseT connections. The ZU510T is reliable, flexible and cost-efficient, according to Optoma, and the new model is aimed primarily at universities, museums and other mid-sized venues.

Robert Sterzing, the president of Optoma Technology, said: “Optoma is the second largest selling projector brand in the US according to PMA [Pacific Media Associates], and the company has had a reputation for quality and reliability in the channels we have focused on.

“As a brand, we’re relatively new to the ProAV channel, but it became a top priority in 2015 and today we’re a top five seller in the channel. By focusing on quality and reliability — along with innovation and flexibility — we’re listening to the market and manufacturing projectors that meet the needs of ProAV customers.”
