OPTOMA® INTRODUCES TWO NEW NETWORKABLE PROJECTORS FOR LECTURE HALLS AND CONFERENCE ROOMS

TX779 and TH1060 Give Optoma Broadest Corporate, Education Product Lines

MILPITAS, Calif. | June 9, 2010 | Increasing its penetration into the lecture hall and large conference room arena, Optoma®, the world's bestselling brand of DLP projectors, has introduced the TX779 and TH1060, two new networkable projectors with a host of features to meet the demanding conditions found in larger, well-lit rooms. Using high-efficiency lamps that put out 4500 and 3500 ANSI lumens, respectively, both projectors are also compatible with Crestron RoomView® Express for projector management and control via RJ45 connection. Both also employ advanced power-conserving green technology that uses less than 1 watt of power during standby mode.

"With the addition of these two projectors, there is no question that Optoma offers the deepest line of DLP projectors for the business and education markets," said Jon Grodem, senior director of product and marketing for Optoma. "From Pico projectors meeting the ultra portable needs, all the way up to the challenges of large venue installations, Optoma has the ideal projector for any use."

The TH1060's 3500 lumens and full HD1080p resolution produce vivid, widescreen images, perfect to show off detailed graphics or simply provide a larger workspace to display information. The TH1060 offers a wide range of features and connectivity options, including two HDMI ports. Closed captioning is built in, and a presentation-friendly IR remote is included. To enhance accessibility during maintenance and service when ceiling mounted, the projector has been designed to allow for easy, convenient lamp access.

The TX779 provides XGA resolution in a 4500 lumen package. While it has been enhanced with many of the same features as the TH1060, including a wide range of connectivity options, built-in closed captioning, a presentation-friendly IR remote, and easy lamp access when ceiling mounted, the TX779 is also 3D capable for 3D computer content.

Both offer similar connectivity options, including HDMI (the TH1060 has two), DVI-D (TX779), VGA-In, VGA-Out, Component, S-Video, Composite Video, Stereo RCA Audio-In, Stereo Audio-In, Stereo Audio-Out, RS-232, USB, RJ45, and a 12V trigger.

Both are also PC and MAC compatible and support computer resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 pixels (HD), and can also accept common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p (HDTV, EDTV, SDTV, NTSC, PAL, SECAM).
