Optoma will make the formal introduction of its hybrid projector at ISE 2012. The new model was previewed at BETT on the TI stand alongside the new BenQ laser model. The sub 3kg Optoma has an expected brightness of 2000 Lumens. The short throw lens displays a 60” image from only 68cm away and is designed for classrooms or smaller meeting rooms where space can be limited. Photos, videos and office presentation files can be directly projected from an SD card or USB memory stick – without conversion. Tablets without video output now mirror desktops to the projector wirelessly or via USB-display for flexibility. The new hybrid eliminates lamp replacements while using less than 0.5W in standby, theZW210ST isa said to be both environmentally friendly and cost effective.
Other ISE introductions from Optoma will include the EW775 3D home cinema model which will output video and images at 120Hz producing full screen, full colour, stereoscopic passive 3D. The 3D effect is generated by splitting this signal into two standard video streams, one for each eye. Passive 3D glasses will be available to demonstrate the full immersive experience. The WXGA EW775, features 4500 ANSI lumens.
