Esteemed projector manufacturer, Optoma, has unveiled two brand-new EcoBright solid-state illumination (SSI) DLP-based short-throw projectors targeted at business and education applications.

The 2,500-lumen ZW212ST and the 2,300-lumen ZX212ST projectors are the brightest of their kind produced by Optoma today. The new EcoBright models – which have contrast ratios of more than 100,000:1 – represent the brand’s sixth generation of “lamp-free projectors”.

“Our experience with this technology has enabled us to push the envelope and deliver the best projector in its class – and the best value, to boot,” Optoma’s Jon Grodem explained. “Because of their performance and energy-saving advantages, lamp-free projectors are playing an increasingly important role in display technology, and it is Optoma’s intention to continue to lead the way.”

The projectors both have wireless capabilities and Crestron certification, providing for remote management and control. They have 2GB internal memories, as well as USB, HDMI, VGA in, VGA out and MiniUSB inputs for display.

The SSI technology uses both LEDs and lasers to provide exceptional brightness and vivid colours over periods of extended use, while also minimising power consumption and reducing the devices’ carbon footprints.
