Optoma, in partnership with Texas Instruments, has announced that it will run its annual showcase – The Optoma Showcase: Driving performance in projectors – at Silverstone, home of the British Grand prix, on Friday 7 November from 10am-3pm.
Optoma is inviting AV dealers, IT and AV distributors, home cinema specialists, Pro-AV partners, business and corporate customers, education/public sector customers and media partners.
“The showcase will be an invaluable source of information for partners, with the latest models on show for business, home, education and public sector,” said Nick Price, Optoma’s territory manager. “And you might get the chance to drive an Aston Martin around Silverstone! Places are limited, so I would encourage people to get in early and book their place.”
The showcase will be organised into zones with demonstrations taking place throughout the day.
In the professional installation zone there will be auto-blending demonstrations using the Chameleon GB-200 and two of Optoma’s 5,000-7,000-lumen ProScene projectors. The ProScene team will be on hand to give advice on the features and capabilities of these models.
Visitors to the event will be among the first in the UK to see Optoma’s new 1080p business and home projectors in action. There will be a gaming and home cinema area with demonstrations on how the MHL within Optoma’s new 1080p gaming projector, GT1080, can be used to play games, stream videos and share images on the big screen while simultaneously charging a connected smartphone or tablet with a single cable.
Elsewhere, Optoma’s interactive ultra short throw projectors will be showcased within the education zone while demonstrations in the business zone will focus upon projector connectivity with other technologies such as Google Chromecast. Optoma will also show its range of LED lighting and accessories.
To All attendees will be entered into a draw to win one of twenty places for an Aston Martin driving experience. This would involve a tour of this legendary circuit followed by an unforgettable drive around the racetrack in an Aston Martin.
