Optoma projectors work in a variety of settings from homes to offices and larger venues like museums, theaters and performance halls. They project pictures onto multiple surfaces including screens, walls and whiteboards. Most models have advanced features that improve picture and sound quality, as well as promote connectivity among wireless devices. At Staples, you'll find a wide array of models to suit your needs whether you want it for casual or professional use.
Picture Quality and Resolution When shopping for an Optoma projector, two factors to consider include resolution and lumen output. Many models come with either 720p or 1080p resolution though some have 1920 x 1200 WUXGA display for even more clarity. Many come with adjustable sizing, with a range between 25 and 200 inches, so you can zoom in or out to fit the picture on various surfaces. An extended lamp life, up to 20,000 hours, means long-lasting operation.
The lumen output determines how bright the picture is, and models range from 500 to 12,000 lumens, though some units measure output in LED brightness. LED models forego the color wheel, instead using red, blue and green modules to create the image. An Optoma DLP projector uses specialized chip technology to improve crispness with the use of millions of mirrors. It reduces the amount of space between pixels and eliminates blurry pictures.
Casual and Professional Use Optoma's projectors come in compact and full-size models, so you can take them on the go or set them up in a designated space. Micro units come with carrying cases, and easily fit in briefcases, carry-ons and purses for maximum portability. Many come with the necessary hardware to install on the ceiling and 360-degree picture rotation. Home entertainment models let you enjoy movies, games and sporting events in new dimensions. Those designed for business use make it easy to give sales presentations in meetings or with some models, display a digital sign, which comes in particularly handy in retail settings.
If you're using the unit in a small room, whether at home or in a classroom, consider an ultra-short or short-throw model. They produce crisp pictures on smaller surfaces and work when placed as little as 1.7 feet away. Professional models have extended throws for use in large venues that host tens of thousands of guests. They come in handy in churches, theaters and auditoriums, letting you present materials from several feet away.
Advanced Features Many Optoma projectors come with built-in features that increase the unit's efficiency. Many have PC-free viewing capability, letting users install USB flash drives, pair with wireless devices or use memory cards to create presentations or share videos and photos with others. Those that are 3D ready work with compatible content to bring presentations and films to life. Select units have wireless presenting capability that let you connect to your laptop, smartphone, tablet or desktop PC using a special adapter. You can then access the content on these devices without a direct connection. Many come with a remote for full control over the options, and built-in speakers that eliminate the need for external peripherals.
