Optoma Launches the Exceptional H57 Home Theater Projector Featuring DarkChip2 DLP Technology from Texas Instruments

Company’s Native Widescreen H57 Stands to Outperform Big-Ticket Competitors with superior picture quality and super quiet operation.

Milpitas, Calif. (Sept 10, 2004) — Proving that high performance, design ingenuity, and competitive pricing can go hand-in-hand, Optoma Technology, Inc. will unveil the native 576P, 1024×576 (16:9) resolution Home Theater Projector.

Beginning tomorrow, the Optoma H57 576p native resolution home theater projector, which features DarkChip2 Digital Light Processing technology from Texas Instruments, will be one of the top attractions at the Optoma home theater exhibit at CEDIA 2004 in Indianapolis.

The H57 combines DarkChip2 DLP technology with a four-speed, six-segment color wheel, and uses the advanced scaling capabilities of the Pixelworks 463 scaler. This combination of advanced technologies results in native 576p resolution, rich dark levels with contrast ratio of 2500:1, breathtakingly vivid colors, and a native 16:9 aspect ratio–perfect for viewing widescreen materials in their natural state.

The H57 projector is compatible with every digital and analog source. It has Composite Video, S-Video, VGA, DVI-I HDCP, Component Video (480i/p, 720p, and 1080i) inputs. Up to three component video inputs can be connected simultaneously to this projector. HDMI output device can be connected to H57 through a bundled HDMI to DVI adaptor.

The Optoma H57 Home Theater Projector also employs some of the most revolutionary engineering on the market, such as its Shield Design casing. This advanced casing technology prevents unwanted light emissions and, at the same time, enables near silent operation. The secret to this technology lies in the strategic use of baffles within the cooling tunnel to reduce air flow speed and achieves a whisper quiet, 28dB noise level. Furthermore, a patent pending pressure sensor design ensures its long term operational reliability even in high altitude regions in this country.
