Dust resistant optical engine
This projector is designed with Optoma’s Airtight Optical Engine with IP5X certification. The airtight enclosure resists dust particles and ensures a long lasting, reliable and maintenance free experience.

Total cost of ownership
For demanding applications the total cost of ownership of a projector is not in the purchase cost, but in expensive maintenance and service. ProScene projectors require very little maintenance; have no user serviceable parts inside and no filters that require periodic replacement. The result is low cost, predictable service cycles, enabling planned down time to be minimized.

Industry leading color performance
This projector boasts a wide color gamut and is designed to provide the best color performance to match any application or environment. Our advanced color technology, multiple settings and features enable users to enjoy long-lasting, reliable and precise color – from vibrant, punchy presentations to lifelike images.

Big Zoom Range
A large zoom range enables multiple placement possibilities at a variety of distances from the projection screen. An advantage to this is that expensive interchangeable lens projectors can be substituted with a more cost effective solution whilst still retaining a diverse choice of positioning options.

Full lens shift
Simplify installation with lens shift, which provides a wide range of projector placement possibilities : V. +20% / H. +/-10%.

360° and portrait projection capability
Images can be projected over a full 360° range along the vertical axis, including reproduction on a ceiling or floor. This projector can also be placed in portrait mode for applications such as digital signage or for tall thin projection areas.

24/7 operation
All ProScene projectors are designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability.

4 - Corner Adjustment
By individually adjusting each corner of the image, it eliminates any crooked or distorted images in off-angle or restricted space installations for that perfect picture

Uncompromised, uncompressed Full HD video, audio, network and control commands all delivered on a single CAT- type cable capable up to 100 meters/328 feet without signal loss makes installation hassle-free. HDBaseT simplifies cabling requirements and reduces installation complexity saving both time and reducing costs.

Color matching
The color matching system, combines accurate measurements across multiple projectors creates seamless blends every time.

Prevents image degradation when using very long HDMI cables with HDMI EQ Signal Boost (boost strength: 0-7).

Versatile System Integration Control Protocols
Crestron RoomView, Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery and PJ-Link protocols are fully supported, allowing nearly all aspects of the series to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

Picture by picture / picture-in-picture
This projector supports picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture. Signals can be delivered simultaneously via the HDMI and DVI ports, for a PbP or PiP display from two digital sources – perfect for video-conferencing and other collaborative applications.

Speakers with EQ adjustments
  • 2x10W stereo speakers.
  • 5 EQ audio boost presets.
Low Noise: Quieter than a Whisper
Only 28dB in ECO mode, quieter than a Whisper.

AV Mute
In situations where only absolute darkness is required, this projector can provide a total blackout that functions like mechanical shutter. The change between normal projection to a total black image and vice versa is instantaneous.

Quick start-up and shutdown
This projector features quick start-up and shutdown and reaches full brightness quickly. To maximise energy saving it also includes a ‘pause projection’ feature where the light source can be completely shut off. Unlike conventional lamp based projectors, the laser- light source requires minimal cool-down time.
