The ZW212ST and ZX212ST are Optoma’s brightest lamp-free projectors

Optoma, a developer of projection and digital display products, introduces two new “EcoBright” solid-state illumination short-throw projectors—the 2500 lumen ZW212ST and its 2300 lumen cousin, the ZX212ST—which the company says are its brightest lamp-free projectors.
Offering a 100,000:1 contrast ratio that ensures crisp, clear and readable text, both the WXGA resolution ZW212ST and the XGA resolution ZX212ST employ all the latest command and control technologies, ensuring easy system integration and operation in any conference room or classroom.
Both the ZW212ST and ZX212ST have been designed to help speakers and educators more effectively display their presentations, save money and reduce their carbon footprint, Optoma says.
�� “The new EcoBright projectors represent our sixth generation of lamp-free projectors,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior director of sales and marketing. “Because of their performance and energy-saving advantages, lamp-free projectors are playing an increasingly important role in display technology, and it is Optoma’s intention to continue to lead the way.”
In addition to their brightness, Optoma says it has incorporated additional features into its EcoBright projectors “that will make them a favorite of any video installation professional or end user.” Those features include wireless capabilities and remote management and control.
MS Office Viewer which supports direct-playback of movies, photos and Office files from the projectors’ 2GB internal memory, through the USB port, or via an SD card slot that supports up to 32GB of memory expansion.
Both projectors also provide inputs to satisfy infrastructure needs, including HDMI, VGA-in, VGA-out, mini-USB for display, USB for wireless connectivity, RS-232 and RJ45 ports for remote management through a larger network, S-video, composite video, audio in and audio out, Optoma says. In addition, the “Z” series of projectors utilize the company’s SSI technology that incorporates both LEDs and lasers to deliver high-lumen output and vivid color reproduction over periods of extended use, while at the same time using less power and reducing the projector’s carbon footprint, the company says.
The ZW212ST and ZX212ST have a “virtually-maintenance-free light source” that is rated to last more than 20,000 hours, ensuring years of service with little or no loss of performance, Optoma says.
