FREMONT, CALIF. — Optoma introduced
this month its GT750 portable
720p DLP HD video projector, which is
the company’s fourth video projector to
date targeted specifically at video gaming
enthusiasts.

The company formally unveiled the
new projector, which is compatible with
most gaming formats and standards —
including Blu-ray 3D — at the Electronic
Entertainment Industry (E3) Expo, held
in Los Angeles earlier this month.

It is expected to ship to dealers in August
at a $799 suggested retail.

“This is a milestone product for Optoma
and a direct response to 3D gaming
enthusiasts who want to take advantage
of the newest technologies,” stated Jon
Grodem, Optoma’s product and marketing
senior director. “And as more
3D content becomes available, both for
games and general entertainment, the
GT750 becomes a natural choice.”

The GT750, which is added to Optoma’s
GameTime series, includes features
designed to heighten the immersive
gaming experience.

Brightness is listed at 2,500 lumens
and the short-throw lens extends the
big-picture versatility to small rooms.

It is equipped with a 10-watt stereo
speaker system.

Native resolution is listed at a widescreen
HD-level 1,280 by 720 pixels
(720p) and will accommodate video
games produced in widescreen aspect
ratios, including those running 3D content
on Blu-ray discs.

Inputs include an HDMI 1.4a port with
supported 3D signals, as well as connections
for PCs and Macs.

The GT750 comes packaged with a
custom backpack for on-the-go transportability.
