Stunning projection with flexible installation

Its low weight and quiet operation make it perfect for boardrooms, higher education, houses of worship and smaller entertainment venues. Horizontal and vertical lens shift, four corner correction, 360° and portrait mode operation enable flexible installations.

A variety of inputs, including HDBaseT and HDMI, enable simple connections to a wide variety of video sources. HDBaseT connectivity facilitates easy installations, enabling long cable runs of up to 328 feet for audio, video and control from a single CAT6 cable.


DLP Technology

DLP® (Digital Light Processing) is a proprietary technology from Texas Instruments that offers digital projection with higher contrast, faster response time, good pixel structure and virtually no color degradation.


Simplify installations by transmitting uncompressed video/audio and control commands using standard shielded CAT6 cabling up to 328 feet (100m).

Full Lens Shift

Optoma projectors with full lens shift provide off-axis vertical and horizontal adjustments for complete installation flexibility without image distortion or pixelation.

WUXGA Resolution

Where details really matter, the full WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution offers 15-percent more pixels than 1080p, and 60-percent more than SXGA+. This enables unscaled Full HD video and extra detail.

Sleep Timer

The sleep timer turns off the projector after a set period of time.

Direct Power On

Turn on the projector directly from the power source. This feature aids installations that rely on power-on timers. The sleep timer can be used to turn the projector off after a set time.

RS-232 Control

Take control of the projector using HEX or ASCII commands via RS-232 cable.

Four Corner Adjustment

Four corner geometric correction enables quick and easy image adjustments from any of the corner points of the image. This is ideal for uneven or angled projection surfaces.

Crestron Roomview® – NETWORK CONTROL Roomview®

Software provides a custom configurable interface to monitor, manage and control every device in every room remotely from any computer.
