Optoma Ships Highly-Anticipated MovieTime Digital DVD Projector

MovieTime Digital Projector Features Built-in DVD Player and Integrated Speakers for Instant, Big-Screen Home Entertainment

Milpitas, CA — July 11, 2005 — Optoma Technology, Inc. announces the shipping of its MovieTime digital DVD home theater projector. The MovieTime DVD projector features a built-in DVD player and integrated speakers in a stylish, compact design. With its ultra bright, theater-quality projection and easy-to-use features, movie enthusiasts can enjoy stunning and engaging video and sound for instant home entertainment.

MovieTime is designed for a wide-range of home entertainment options, from watching the latest DVD movie releases to hooking it up to a gaming console to play the latest hottest gaming titles on a large screen with friends and family. Because of MovieTime’s integrated digital DVD player and speakers, as well as its short throw lens, it is easy to turn any room in the house into an instant screening room–right out of the box.

“Optoma’s MovieTime Digital DVD projector changes the home entertainment landscape by helping people instantly create a home theater in just about any room in the house,” said Ralph Merrem, director of Product Management of Optoma Technology, Inc. “MovieTime is a simple, plug-and-play product, giving a way for movie fans to quickly and easily create their own home theater environment with a built-in DVD player and speakers and a native 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.”

MovieTime features Digital Light ProcessingTM (DLP) technology from Texas Instruments, providing a direct digital signal from the DVD to the projector to produce accurate color and details, and ensuring that the images on the screen do not fade or degrade over time. MovieTime offers HDTV compatibility for HD content from a number of sources, as well as an optimized display setting for true widescreen theater-quality performance. The MovieTime DVD projector also offers an optical audio output, which can deliver up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. MovieTime is also compatible with gaming consoles, VCRs, and PCs, as well as other devices to provide large-screen entertainment.

MovieTime is a pure digital DVD projector and accepts direct digital signals from a DVD disc to the projected image.

MovieTime provides true 480p from DVD to DLP, with no scaling errors.
