James Veitch was performing his third show, Game Show, at the Edinburgh Fringe. The show entails using a Powerpoint and unfortunately for James, he was missing his projector. He approached Optoma with the request that he needed a high-resolution short throw projector that can be set up with ease close to the screen and ensure that no shadows are cast across his Powerpoint.
In response, Optoma suggested the EH200ST. With its 3,000 lumen brightness and ability to short throw a 100-inch image from just over a metre, this was ideal for Game Show. Its multi-connection functionality along with two HDMI inputs made switching between different sources simple and fast. The model also comes with 1080p Full HD and lamp life of around 6,000 hours. In addition, it allows for 3D content to be projected from a number of sources including 3D Blu-ray DVD players.
James Veitch has the honour of holding the record for the fastest ever TED talk to reach over two million views. His first solo comedy show, the Fundamental Interconnectedness of Everyone with an Internet Connection, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 where he was described as “tears-down-the-face funny”.
His current performance, Game Show, is being shown at the Pleasance Dome in Edinburgh every evening in August (except Monday 15) until Monday 29 August.
