Optoma To Expand 3D Projector Lineup

Optoma announced the company will add 3D-ready capabilities to at least six new projector models by the first half of 2010. Two 3D-ready models were recently introduced by the company, which manufactures products for the corporate and education markets and for home theater.

One of the new 3D projectors is the PRO350W data projector. This model features WXGA resolution to match widescreen laptop computers. It is specified at a brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens and offers a 3,000:1 contrast ratio. It's shipping now for $749.

Earlier this year, Optoma introduced two projectors aimed squarely at the education market. These are the TX536 and TS526, both with a brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens and contrast ratio of 3,000:1. The company has not yet revealed if these will be two of the models upgraded for 3D capabilities.
