Optoma unveils audio range at ISE 2015 and reveals its new 1080p ultra short throw projector

Optoma will showcase its new audio and projection products at ISE 2015. Visitors to the stand (1-F70) will be among the first in Europe to see and hear Optoma’s NuForce range of consumer audio products and will experience unique projection demonstrations from across the range.

This year, Optoma’s demonstrations will be organised into three zones: home, business and education and ProScene solutions where visitors can

  • Hear, see and feel the NuForce audio range
  • Try the new 1080p ultra short throw interactive projector
  • Test-drive a commercial grade racing car simulator with six-metre immersive screen
  • Watch the innovative retail projection solutions

Home zone

Optoma’s new NuForce audio range will be officially launched in the home zone. NuForce is already known for its clean design and superior sound. The new streamlined audio range comprises three main categories: home cinema, home stereo and mobile.

The home cinema audio range complements Optoma’s home projectors. These products are engineered for audio purists and include a digital AV preamp and two high power multi-channel amps. Its home stereo products include a digital to analogue converter (DAC), power amps, integrated amps, a headphone amp and a Bluetooth receiver. And its mobile range includes a series of high quality earphones including the award-winning Primo8 earphones and the super-small uDAC3 mobile USB DAC.

Visitors to the stand will be able to see Optoma’s latest 1080p home projectors in action. There will be live demonstrations of Optoma’s award-winning home cinema projector, HD50 and the popular short throw gaming projector, GT1080.

 

Business and education zone

Top of the bill in this zone is Optoma’s new 1080p ultra short throw interactive projector, the EH320UST. Perfect for schools and colleges, this uses a new generation of finger-touch interactive technology, enabling several people to work simultaneously on the screen without using a pen. Launching with a completely new mounting system and intuitive interactive setup, this system promises fast and simple set-up with virtually no maintenance or calibration.

Also being demonstrated in this zone is the EH415ST, a new cost effective, Full HD, short throw projector with dual HDMI inputs.

Optoma is also excited to show a new concept: lampless, super-wide, ultra short throw interactive projector with an aspect ratio of 2.6:1 enabling two full resolution 4:3 images to be simultaneously displayed side-by-side.

 

ProScene solutions zone

The centrepiece of the ProScene zone will be an impressive 11 metre wide, high resolution edge-blend using eight 7,000-lumen Optoma EH7700 ProScene projectors, two Optoma Chameleon GB-200 blend and warp processors, and Green Hippo’s Hippotizer HD processor. This huge edge-blend will feature fantastic animation sequences produced by visual production company, AV3 Media – guaranteed to stop visitors in their tracks.

Projection Artworks, Vesaro, Green Hippo, Tensator and AV3 Media will join Optoma at ISE 2015 to demonstrate the connectivity and creativity capabilities of Optoma’s projectors.

Optoma’s head of product marketing, Justin Halls, said: “We invited these companies to join us as they are market leaders in their fields. This means we can offer some of the most exciting and innovative projection solutions, which we’ll be showcasing on our stand at ISE 2015”.

 

DisplayMapper

DisplayMapper will showcase a range of new point-of-sale solutions demonstrating its dynamic new retail display technology. These include daylight-visible projection mapping displays with cloud control. The demos, which have all been used in commercial environments, will incorporate a range of Optoma’s 1080p standard and short-throw projectors.

 

Green Hippo

Green Hippo specialises in playback and display solutions such as Hippotizer Media servers and AViary video tools. The Hippotizer HD will be used to show projection mapping onto various large irregular shaped 3D objects at the event, using Optoma projectors.

 

Vesaro

Visitors to the stand will be able to test-drive a truly modular, commercial grade racing car simulator, the Vesaro Stage 10 Pro. This simulator includes cutting-edge six-inch motion technology, which takes the range of movement to a new level of extreme realism. It will be combined with a huge six-metre wide curved screen created using three Optoma EH200ST projectors and two Optoma Chameleon GB-200 blend and warp processors.

 

Tensator

A next generation digital signage solution from Tensator will also be included in the ProScene solutions zone. This virtual assistant uses cutting-edge technology along including a built-in Optoma projector to project an image and create the illusion of a real person, acting as an interactive informational and instructional tool.

Experts from Optoma’s product management team and European sales regions will be on hand to provide technical knowledge and give advice on the features and capabilities of its professional installation models.

 

Everything in Full HD

Optoma has one of the most extensive 1080p projector product ranges. At the 2015 event, virtually every demonstration on the Optoma stand will be in glorious Full HD resolution.

Len Carlton, managing director of Optoma EMEA, said: “When purchasing a high quality 1080p projector model, where typically image quality, including colour performance and contrast are important criteria, the vast majority of buyers choose a DLP based projector over those based on three LCD technology.”

According to market data organisation PMA, 80% of all 1080p projectors sold in Europe, Middle East and Africa in Q2 and Q3 last year used DLP technology.

ISE 2015 takes place from 10th to 12th February 2015 at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam. The Optoma stand can be found in Hall 1, stand 1-F70. Use the code 705254 to receive your free entry ticket: http://www.iseurope.org
