Optoma introduced two new short-throw projectors, the TX610ST and TW610ST, designed to provide educators and business users with feature-rich, budget-friendly solutions for delivering large, high-resolution images when space is tight, according to the company.

Both new models are 3D-capable in 720p HD and offer command and control via Crestron RoomView technology. The TX610ST features 3000 ANSI lumens of brightness, while the TW610ST delivers 3100 lumens.

"The ability to create large, vivid images from short distances has made short-throw projectors highly desirable in classrooms and meeting rooms," said Jon Grodem, Optoma's senior director of product and marketing, in a statement. "These two new projectors provide even more power than our previous short-throw models, plus they include the latest technology to support new applications and support infrastructures."

With its new optics, the XGA (1028x764 pixels) resolution TX610ST can produce a 72-inch image from as close as 3 feet away. The WXGA widescreen TW610ST (1280x800 pixels) can deliver an 84-inch image from the same distance. Both benefit from a 25-percent increase in brightness and contrast over the company's previous short-throw model, according to the compant. Both also employ DLP link technology to support 720p 3D display with the use of active-shutter glasses.

The new units come with various I/O connections, including HDMI 1.3, two VGA in, VGA out, S-Video, composite video, RCA stereo audio in, stereo audio in/out, microphone in, RJ-45, RS-232, USB and a 12V trigger.

Both are also compatible with most computer formats, including UXGA, WXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA resized, VESA, PC and Macintosh. They can also accept common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p (HDTV, EDTV, SDTV, NTSC, PAL and SECAM).

The DLP engine operates without filters, reducing ownership and maintenance costs while ensuring consistent performance throughout the projector's life, according to the company. The projection lamp is rated to last up to 4,000 hours in standard mode or 3,000 hours in bright mode.
