home theater experience

LAS VEGAS, CES, Jan. 6, 2005 — Optoma Technology, Inc. today announced the MovieTimeTM DV10, a groundbreaking digital home theater projector that features ultra bright, cinema-quality projection, a built-in DVD player and high performance speakers in a stylish, compact design. At only $1,495, movie enthusiasts can now enjoy stunning and engaging video and sound in their home instantly without the complexities and price usually associated with home theater solutions. Optoma is exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (January 6-9, 2005), at the Optoma booth located in the South Hall section 1, #20538.

This pure digital DVD projector has the inherent advantage of having been perfectly preset from the DVD disc to the projected image, resulting in optimized DVD viewing with guaranteed color accuracy and distortion free pictures like never before. Gone are the issues of complex compatibilities, confusion about which connectors to use, challenges of cable matching, the hazards of cable lengths or cable electromagnetic shielding. This machine is preset to deliver the best DVD results from this astounding technology.

The new MovieTime digital DVD projector is designed perfectly for a wide range of home entertainment, whether it’s viewing the latest cinema titles or watching home movies with friends and family. The integrated digital DVD player, two 5-watt speakers and short throw lens make it a snap to turn any room in the house into a screening room — right out of the box. MovieTime features Digital Light ProcessingTM (DLP) technology from Texas Instruments and provides a direct digital signal from DVD to projector producing accurate color and details for a rich home theater experience. It offers HDTV compatibility for High Definition entertainment from a variety of sources and an optimized setting display for true widescreen cinema-quality performance. The DV10 also offers optical audio output, which is ideal for rich and engulfing Dolby and DTS home theater surround sound. The sound system can also be connected to an external audio system to give a full 5.1 surround sound experience.

“Cinema quality experience in the home has to this point been reserved for enthusiasts who were prepared to invest significant time and money in order to build a quality in-home solution,” said Otto Kong, CEO, Optoma Technology. “The MovieTime Digital DVD projector changes the landscape by allowing, for the first time, users to instantly install a high performance home theater solution without breaking the bank. Now anyone can transform their living room into a professional-grade cinema without the hassles of extra cabling and expensive equipment.”

Priced for the consumer market, MovieTime is also compatible with other sources such as gaming consoles, VCRs, and PCs. It projects an eight-foot image from less than nine feet with superb image and sound quality.
