Projector manufacturer Optoma has unveiled a range of ultra short throw projectors designed for businesses and educational institutions.
The widescreen projectors in the EW and EX series can produce a 60in image from a distance of just 15in.
The EW675UTiEDU and EX665UTiEDU come with a native WXGA resolution of 1,280x800, a brightness of 3,200 ANSI Lumens and an in-built 10W speaker. They are 427x407x210mm, weigh 7.6kg and ship with a wall mount.
The projectors have a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and are 3D ready, and interactive-ready models will also be available featuring Quizdom Wizteach software that allows users to interact with any software application live over the internet.
In terms of connectivity, the projectors come with VGA and S-Video Composite connections, 3.5mm audio mini jack and HDMI out.
Interactive models also feature USB connectivity to connect direct to PCs or laptops or show presentations via a dongle.
Justin Halls, head of product management at Optoma, claimed that the range offers shadow- and glare-free presentations.
"Our new ultra short throw projectors are designed to make an impact and come with 3D Ready capability as standard," he said.
The displays are expected to be made available in September, with prices to be confirmed. Optoma provides a five colour and image guarantee and three-year lamp and on-site de/reinstallation warranties.
