3D Technology

Using the inherent speed of DLP technology, Optoma Full 3D projectors can output video and images at an astonishing rate of 120Hz, allowingyou to show full screen, full colour, stereoscopic 3D. The 3D effect is generated by splitting this signal into two standard video streams, onefor each eye. Using DLP Link technology, the 3D glasses synchronise with the image on screen to filter each stream to the correct eye. Yourbrain then combines the two streams to make them jump into life.

The W501 supports multiple 3D formats from various devices such as PC, Blu-ray 3D, Sony PS3, Microsoft Xbox 360 or 3D TV broadcast systems.

Extensive Connectivity

This Full HD projector accepts a wide variety of computer and video input signals. Connectivity includes: HDMI, DVI-D, dual VGA (Component viaadaptor), S-Video, Composite, USB Reader, VGA-Out, RS232, RJ45 and +12V trigger. In addition the optional Wi-Fi accessory can be securelyconnected to a dedicated hidden USB port.

Five audio inputs for HDMI, PC, video and microphone sources enable the W501 to function not only as an audio switcher and volume controller,but also as a basic PA system for larger meeting rooms; thereby eliminating complicated and costly additional audio hardware and cabling.
