Optoma has introduced three new projectors – the TW556-3D, TW631-3D and TX631-3D projectors – that are intended as affordable, entry-level products for corporate boardrooms as well as classrooms. All three will be showcased at InfoComm 2012 this week (booth C5621).
The TW556-3D is a 2800 ANSI lumen, 3D-PC ready projector with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and Optoma’s Eco+ Mode, a suite of features that claims to reduce power consumption by up to 70 percent, while increasing lamp life by up to 30 percent. It is supported by the company’s 3-year Express Replacement Service warranty. It also provides a full complement of connection ports, including HDMI , two VGA-in, VGA-out, S-video, composite video, audio-in, audio-out, RS-232, and a USB port. A remote control with mouse and laser pointer is included. A two-watt speaker provides ample audio for most environments. The projector can also be connected to an external sound system via its built-in audio-out port.
The new TW631-3D and TX631-3D are 3500 ANSI lumen projectors that also employ Optoma’s new Eco+ suite of features, which is said to reduce their power consumption by up to 23 percent, while increasing lamp life by up to 42 percent. Available now, the WXGA resolution TW631-3D carries a price tag of $749, while the XGA TX631-3D is available for $649.
Another improvement aimed at energy savings is an update to the familiar AV Mute feature. Traditionally, when selected, AV Mute would simply blank/mute the projected image while the lamp continued to burn at full intensity. With the new Eco+ AV Mute, lamp intensity is reduced by up to 30%, thereby reducing power consumption by up to 70% with the additional benefit of prolonged lamp life. The TW631-3D and TX631-3D also incorporate Quick Resume, a time and energy saving feature that enables the projector to be restarted instantly after it has been powered off.
