Optoma is introducing the TH7500, its first dual-lamp multimedia projector for high brightness and reliability in rental and staging installations. It offers up to 6,000 lumens and a selection of five lenses at a price of $9,999, not including the lens.
“The TH7500 represents Optoma’s entry into the dual lamp category,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior director of product and marketing, in a statement.
In its bright mode using both lamps, the TH7500 delivers 6,000 ANSI lumens with a contrast ratio of up to 2,000:1. It also offers a 4000-lumen eco mode. The projector can also be operated using a single lamp, with an output of 3,000 lumens in bright mode or 2,000 lumens in economy mode.
The TH7500 offers a native HD resolution of 1920×1200 (WUXGA) in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Users can choose from any of five different lenses to accommodate projection distances ranging from just under two feet to almost 250 feet. The projectors ships with two color wheels for optimization of either video or data.
Powered lens shift, zoom, focus, and keystone correction are standard. The TH7500 comes with two HDMI ports, two VGA-in, RGBHV BNC, YPbPr, component, S-Video, and composite video ports. It also includes a VGA-out and can be controlled via RJ45, RS-232, and a 12V trigger. It is compatible with WUXGA, HD, UXGA, WXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA, VESA, PC and Macintosh computer formats, and it offers video compatibility with NTSC, PAL, SECAM, SDTV (480i), EDTV (480p), and HDTV (720p, 1080i/p).
The TH7500 is ruggedly built, weighing 51.4 pounds (without the lens) and measuring 21.6 inches wide, by 9.3 inches deep, by 17.2 inches high.
