Providing educators and business users with the most feature-rich, budget-friendly, short-throw projector, Optoma has begun shipping the TW610STi+, designed to produce large, high-resolution images when space is tight. 3D-ready in 720p HD and offering state-of-the-art remote command and control via Crestron RoomView® technology, the TW610STi+ features PointBlank 3.0 interactive technology and delivers 3200 ANSI lumens of brightness, all at a suggested price of $999.

“The TW610STi+ meets important needs in both classrooms and meeting rooms,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior director of product and marketing. “By continuing to offer the most advanced interactive solutions available and improving the brightness level from previous models, Optoma is staying at the forefront in providing the ability to create large, vivid images from short distances while also helping to meet fixed budgets.

The TW610STi+ creates an interactive presentation environment without the expense of an interactive whiteboard. The WXGA resolution projector creates an 84” diagonal image from as close as three feet away from the screen. The new PointBlank 3.0 package includes a new pen with a smaller, more ergonomic design which creates a more comfortable fit, especially for a child’s hand.

The new pen also delivers greater accuracy and a faster response time, which combine to deliver smoother onscreen movement and better overall performance. A new rechargeable battery design that includes a micro USB charging cable helps to ensure that it is always ready for use.

The TW610STi+ provides a full complement of I/O connections, including HDMI v1.3, two VGA-in, VGA-out, S-Video, composite video, RCA audio-in, stereo audio-in, stereo audio-out, microphone-in, mini-USB for interactive pen output to computer, mini-USB for display, USB for wireless dongle, RJ45, RS-232, and 12V trigger.

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

The projector carries Optoma’s 3-year Optoma Express Service, 1-year lamp. Additional product details and specifications are available at www.optomausa.com.
