Philips partners with Optoma

Technology leader, Philips, and award-winning projector manufacturer, Optoma, will be showcasing Philips new ColorSpark High Lumen Density (HLD) LED projection technology on the Optoma booth 3612 at InfoComm 2015.

Visitors to the event on 17-19 June in Orlando, Florida, will be among the first to see this new ground-breaking projection technology in action.

Justin Halls, head of product marketing at Optoma, commented: “We are delighted to unveil a prototype projector that harnesses the new Philips ColorSpark HLD LED technology. This technology will enable a new generation of far brighter LED DLP projectors with industry leading colour performance and accuracy. Optoma HLD LED projectors will comfortably be able to render larger screen sizes in normal ambient light conditions with outstanding image quality enabling them to compete with flat screen displays.

“Current LED technology offers consistent brightness and exceptional colour performance, while maintaining its out-of-the-box image quality throughout its lifetime. HLD adds three times higher screen brightness and improved colour reproduction.”

Jan-Willem Andriesse, product marketing manager from Philips said: “We are excited to provide HLD technology to our partners and eagerly anticipate the ground-breaking projectors it will enable. For over 20 years we have supported the projector industry with our leading UHP lamp illumination and more recently with our SSL illumination technologies.

“Despite the variety of SSL technologies, penetration of 1000+ lumen front projectors has been limited to less than a five percent volume share for several years. Clearly the market is struggling to find the right SSL technology for the mainstream segments. On the one hand LED based projectors are not able to reach sufficient brightness levels and on the other hand Laser-hybrid and Laser-phosphor have been struggling to find a good price-performance ratio. HLD and the products it will enable, is the solution the market has been looking for.”

InfoComm takes place on 13-19 June 2015 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Demonstrations of this new ground-breaking projection technology will take place 17-19 June. Experts from Optoma’s product management team and US sales regions will be on hand to provide technical knowledge, one-to-one demonstrations and sales support at the Optoma booth 3612.
