Personally, I have never been a big projector fan. Mostly because of conjured up reasons which are not entirely factual. None the less, consumers wanting to build a theater in their home continue to allow the projector market to thrive. Optoma, a leading manufacturer of video and audio products, has displayed a lineup of new and innovative home theater projectors at CES. These will deliver unprecedented home cinema experiences, and perhaps convert a few non-believers like myself. They will be offering high quality products at market leading prices, driving the industry forward and making projects more accessible and mainstream.
With Optoma’s continued commitment to bringing innovation to the industry, and more consumers, like myself, continue to choose projection over TV, Opto is set to deliver everything from 4K UHD resolution and laser light sources to ultra-short throw distances. Optomo is also releasing an ultra-compact pico projector with LED illumination, an Android operating system and app store that makes connecting and viewing content easier than ever. I have personally used some smaller projectors in sales calls at remote offices, and they make the life of the salesman infinitely easier. The addition of mirroring capabilities would make the salesperson look like a rock star.
New products for 2017 will range in price from $699 for a 16ms response time 1080p projector aimed at gamers, to $19,999 the 4K ultra short throw laser projector capable of a 140” projection from just inches away.
Perhaps this is enough to convince the consumer to look again at projectors, there really is something for everyone.
