Optoma Launches New Projector Lines
Optoma has begun shipping its fully refreshed line of projectors, which all feature greater brightness, clarity and enhanced color at lower prices points than last year. The increased brightness also enables several of the projectors to be used for commercial and home use, something that could make front projection sales a bit easier for retailers.
The 10 new platforms include the EP1691 and EP7155 3.2-pound ultra-portables; the EP721, EP727 and EP728 multimedia data series; the 6.3-pound EP761 with 3200 lumens and 2000:1 contrast ratio; and the new 720p HD65 and HD71 high-definition home theater projectors.
“One of the big trends we see is that people are becoming a lot more sophisticated and they understand how versatile the products are,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior product manager. “Across the industry, as price points go down, features improve and consumer acceptance increases.”
