New entry-level projector reduces power use up to 70%

Optoma has introduced the new TW556-3D, a 2800 ANSI lumen, 3D-PC ready projector with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and Optoma’s Eco+ Mode, a suite of features that reduces power consumption by up to 70 percent, while increasing lamp life by up to 30 percent.

The Eco+ mode employs new technologies that evaluate the brightness level of the content and reduce the lamp intensity to match the scene. Another energy saving improvement is an update to the familiar AV Mute feature. With the Eco+ AV Mute, lamp intensity is reduced by up to 80%, thereby reducing power consumption by up to 70%.

The TW556-3D offers these connection ports: HDMI, two VGA-in, VGA-out, S-video, composite video, audio-in, audio-out, RS-232, and a USB port. A remote control with mouse and laser pointer is included.
