Optoma to bring brighter visuals to the classroom with new high resolution short throw projector

Optoma will shortly be launching a new projector designed to deliver superior quality imagery to classrooms, small meeting rooms or training rooms.

The new EH415ST high resolution full HD 1080p projector offers stunning image performance from a short distance. The short throw lens gives a super-sized 100-inch picture on a screen or wall from just over a metre away. This makes it perfect for small meeting rooms or classrooms.

Optoma’s head of product marketing, Justin Halls, said: “People expect high definition imagery at home but have previously settled for a lower resolution for the office. Technology has developed so much that businesses and educational establishments can now have brighter and higher quality imagery at an affordable price.”

The EH415ST is part of Optoma’s business and education range of projectors and boasts a brightness rating of 3,500 ANSI lumens, which is ideal for use without dimming the lights. And because of this brightness and its light weight (3.4kg), it is extremely flexible for either easy installation or presentations on the move.

Justin added: “This is one of the most affordable high brightness short throw projectors on the market. As well as the full HD high resolution, the projector’s 15:000:1 contrast ratio and its brightness of 3,500 lumens make it possible to include complex detail in presentations.”

This Full 3D high definition projector also has a powerful built-in speaker, which means presentations or films can be played with exceptional sound quality. Despite the compact dimensions of the EH415ST, the level of audio created will easily fill a classroom or office space. An audio output is also included, enabling connection to external sound systems.

The EH415ST has an Eco+ mode for energy saving which includes standby mode and auto power off. And because it is virtually maintenance free, it has an overall lower cost of ownership, longer lamp life (up to 7000 hours*) and improved reliability.

The projector can be managed and monitored remotely with Crestron RoomView, Telnet, Extron IP Link, AMX and PJ-Link, which allow almost all aspects of the EH415ST to be controlled across a network. It has extensive connectivity supporting a wide number of computer and video inputs including VGA and two HDMI ports. It also has audio inputs, which remove the need for additional costly audio hardware and cabling.

The EH415ST features DLP technology pioneered by Texas Instruments, which uses millions of mirrors to produce higher quality 3D images and ensure the projector does not suffer colour degradation over time, as sometimes experienced in other projector technologies.
