A new world of retail signage opens with Optoma’s new laser ultra short throw projectors

A new world of retail signage options has opened up with the launch of Optoma’s new ProScene ultra short throw (UST) 400UST series laser projectors.  The four new models are ideal for signage solutions where space or accessibility can be limited, such as shop windows or retail displays.


Weighing only 5.6kg, the projectors can be ceiling mounted just centimetres away from the wall or shop window and can project an image size of over 100 inches (254cm).


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.


They are available in Full HD 1080p and WXGA resolutions and are powered by a long-lasting, low maintenance, lamp-free, laser light source with 4000 ANSI lumens.  The 400UST 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. And they are independently certified with an IP5X dust resistant rating for reliability even in the most demanding of environments.


Interactive models 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, content can be plugged in and played via the projectors’ 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.”
