Optoma has launched two new LED/laser hybrid projectors that both feature the lamp-free LED+ technology that the company has said will be the “future of projection”.

The new ZW210ST and ZX210ST WXGA/XGA projectors are aimed at education and professional applications and provide impressive performances in an environmentally friendly design, with exceptional life-spans.

The head of product management at the projector specialists, Justin Halls, said that the projectors have been designed to keep up with the cutting edge of modern professional technology.

“LED+ technology is the future of projection for education,” he explained. “Our lamp free LED+ technology ensures lower running and maintenance costs, whilst the powerful and intuitive swipe and pinch presentation controls, using the free Apple and Android apps, make this the most intuitive way to teach.”

The LED+ technology provides exceptional colour fidelity and, through the single chip DLP Dark Chip 3 (DC3) design, gives an increased perception of brightness over other lamp-based projectors.

The models both support wireless presenting capabilities, allowing presenters to project information directly from a smartphone or tablet, through a downloadable WiFi Doc App. They also have USB stick and SD card inputs for use with the built in media player software, which removes the need to convert documents to be compatible first.
