New EX525ST Multimedia Projector Creates 60″ Image from Less Than 30″ Away, Ideal Solution When Space is at a Premium
Responding to market demands for a high definition multimedia projector where space is at a premium, Optoma Technology, Inc., the award-winning manufacturer of digital projection and display devices, has introduced the Optoma EX525ST (short throw) Multimedia Projector. Targeting the education, government and business markets, the EX525ST can project a high-resolution image as large as 100″ diagonally at a distance of four feet from the wall, making it ideal for situations where a traditional projector cannot be used or space is limited. Officials at Optoma said the new projector would be available in October.
“The EX525ST creates many new opportunities for projector deployment,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s director of product and marketing. “The short throw not only produces large images within close distances to the screen, but also allows users to stand closer to the screen without affecting the image. This is important when interactive white board technology is used and when giving presentations in smaller conference rooms.”
To shorten the projection distance of the EX525ST, Optoma developed an entirely new optical projection system. The optical system incorporates a new short throw lens with aspherical lens elements that provide a throw ratio of 0.6:1, enabling the projector to produce large images when positioned very close to a wall or screen. Shortening the necessary projection distance greatly increases the number of options available for installation to include almost anywhere: tabletops, ceilings, walls or even the floor. And with its high definition input capability, the variety of applications for the EX525ST is almost limitless.
The EX525ST features the latest Texas Instruments’ DLP chipset and incorporates Optoma’s BrilliantColor technology to ensure that images have vivid, accurate color. The EX525ST uses a 200 W lamp providing 2500 lumens and a contrast ratio of 2500:1 guarantees a sharp, high-contrast image. Extensive connectivity options, such as DVI, VGA, S-Video, composite, RS-232, USB and RJ45 provide connectivity to just about all possible data and video sources, making the EX525ST the perfect solution for any business or education application.
The Optoma EX525ST short throw projector will be available in October through authorized Optoma resellers.
