Complex ProAV installations are now simpler than ever with the release of Optoma's new short throw range for its 515 projector series. The new range includes WXGA at 5500 lumens, Full HD 1080p at 5000 lumens and WUXGA at 5500 lumens. Both the 1080p and WUXGA models are also available with optional HDBaseT™. The new fixed lens models come with a throw ratio of 0.8:1 and have an impressive lens shift of up to +25% vertical and 10% horizontal. The combination of the new short throw lens and impressive lens shift, which is unusual in short throw projectors, make these ultra-flexible in installations such as retail, museums, education and the corporate sector.
All 515 projectors come with the added benefit of four corner adjustment. This allows quick and accurate installation - ideal for uneven walls or where a projector placement is tricky and needs to be installed at an angle.
Philip Watt, Product Manager at Optoma EMEA said: "Up until now, if a customer wanted to achieve this level of performance and flexibility, they would be looking at an exchangeable lens projector with the extra expense of the lens. This can be an unnecessary expense, where the flexibility to change lenses is not required once installed. We wanted to offer a range of products with the high brightness usually associated with exchangeable lens projectors, keeping the features, but without the cost. Now with the short throw option, the 515 series offers this."
The new short throw models join their standard throw counterparts in the 515 range which include WUXGA, Full HD 1080p, WXGA and XGA resolutions (WU515, WU515T and EH515, EH515T (throw ratio 1.2~2.16:1), W515 and W515T (throw ratio 1.26~2.27:1) and X515 (throw ratio 1.24~2.24:1)).
