Optoma champions a wide range of professional laser projectors which offer key advantages over conventional lamp based models.
As a result, laser projectors are increasingly becoming the light source of choice for professional applications. The long-life and low maintenance of laser phosphor projectors make them ideal in high-use settings like boardrooms, classrooms, retail environments, museums and entertainment venues as well as restrictive installation locations.
- Why laser?
Key advantages of laser projectors
- Minimal maintenance
- No lamp replacements
- Instant power on/off
- Versatile installation
- High brightness and contrast
- Superior color reproduction
- Consistent brightness
- What is laser phosphor?
Laser phosphor is a lamp-less illumination technology that uses blue laser diodes as the light source instead of a lamp to illuminate the DLP chip.
The laser diodes shine blue laser light onto a phosphor wheel to create yellow light, while the blue laser light passes directly through an opening in the phosphor wheel and then through a diffusion window on the filter wheel. Red and green colors are created when the yellow light passes through the corresponding
section of the filter wheel. These colors are then directed onto the DLP chip.
Optoma uses DLP technology for its highly acclaimed image quality and unmatched reliability. The DLP chip can vary in resolution and size and can contain a rectangular array of over eight million micromirrors. Each of these micromirrors reflect light through the projector lens and onto the projection surface, creating an image.
The images displayed are high contrast, judder-free and consistently bright. The main benefits of laser phosphor projectors are longer life, 24/7 operation capability, consistent dependable brightness, minimal maintenance and low total cost of ownership which make this technology the number one choice of the professional.
- Ultimate color performance with MCL technology
Optoma’s MCL (MultiColor Laser) Technology defines outstanding balance in accurate color reproduction and exceptional brightness. With red laser been incorporated into the light source, the select models features unique MCL technology has the ability to produce wider than REC. 709 defined red colors, and images become more vividly alive without sacrificing brightness.
More vivid and vibrant colors.
- DuraCore laser technology
Optoma’s DuraCore laser installation projectors are precision engineered to deliver exceptionally lifelike, rich images over years of 24/7 continuous operation whilst maintaining consistent high brightness, installed in any orientation.
DuraCore delivers a minimum of 20,000 hours of operation in full brightness mode with an independent dust certification of IP5X or IP6X. With inbuilt innovative laser diode cooling techniques, the projector runs more efficiently, uses less power and is compact and quiet. This combination ensures longer lifetime, exemplary consistent high brightness with virtually no maintenance.
Benefits of DuraCore laser technology
Unique to Optoma, DuraCore offers an industry-leading lifetime of the light source, delivering a minimum of 20,000 hours consistent brightness in full brightness mode, 24/7 continuous operation and an independent IP dust resistant certification.
Independent IPX dust certified
Independently certified of IP5X or IP6X for dust resistant, the projected images remain as detailed as the first day they were installed. Robust, reliable with no reduction of picture quality beyond 20,000 hours.
DuraCore technology boasts innovative advanced laser diode cooling architecture which prolongs the lifetime of the optical engine. Refer to “Advanced cooling” diagram.
Compact and lightweight
Higher thermal cooling efficiency enables a compact light weight design.
With virtually no maintenance required, the total cost of ownership is significantly reduced; free from lamp replacements, labor and downtime.
Images can be projected over a full 360 range along the vertical axis, including reproduction a ceiling or floor. The projector can also be placed in portrait mode for applications such as digital signage or for areas with restricted space.
Continuous 24/7 operation
Designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only the most dependable, industry proven components are used for ultimate reliability.
Advanced cooling and energy efficient design enables exceptionally quiet operation.
DuraCore laser vs. conventional lamp projectors
DuraCore laser is precision engineered with a dust resistant optical engine independently IP certified. This ensures a long lasting, reliable and maintenance free light source beyond 20,000 hours in full brightness mode.
All light sources decay over time. After 20,000 hours in full brightness mode, DuraCore laser will still deliver 50% of the original brightness. Equivalent lamp based projectors do not maintain consistent brightness and would require 8x lamp changes within 20,000 hours. DuraCore laser projectors are maintenance free with no serviceable parts or dust filters inside for a lower total cost of ownership.
