Optoma has launched the 400UST DuraCore series of ultra short throw laser projectors, aimed specifically at digital signage applications.
The four ProScene models, unveiled at ISE earlier this year, are available in full HD 1080p and WXGA resolutions and are powered by a long-lasting, low maintenance, laser light source with 4,000 ANSI lumens. The 400UST DuraCore series delivers a consistent high brightness of up to 20,000 hours uninterrupted operation in full brightness mode and superior colour reproduction for vivid images.
Supporting 24/7 operation and versatile orientation, including portrait mode and downward projection, the 400UST series is a flexible, powerful and bright UST projector range – suited for signage solutions where space or accessibility can be limited, such as shop windows or retail displays.
Weighing only 5.6kg, the 400UST projectors can be ceiling mounted just centimetres away from the wall or shop window and can project an image size of over 100in (254cm).
Interactive models also offer ‘TouchBeam’ finger-touch interactive technology feature that transforms any surface into an interactive experience. The highly responsive ‘TouchBeam’ supports up to 10 multi-touch points for collaborative working.
With Office Viewer functionality built in, presentations can be plugged in and played via the projector’s built-in media player without the need for a laptop or PC.
The projectors can be used together with Optoma’s ALR100 ambient light rejecting screen for enhanced colour and contrast in brightly lit spaces.
James Fursse, VSS technical product manager at Optoma EMEA, commented: “The 400UST projectors are the lightest and brightest ultra short throw lasers in their category. The 0.25 UST throw ratio on the ZH400UST 1080p model, its compact chassis and versatile installation make this an exemplary projector for digital signage solutions.”
