The Optoma ML500 500 Lumens Portable Projector is a workhorse for the professional on the go with strong specs, solid core features and conveniences you'd expect to see in a projector meant for professional use. Although Optoma designed it to be a true portable projector suited to road warriors, the ML500 would be at home in board rooms or even in a high-end home theater setup.
500 ANSI lumens backed with a crisp 3000:1 contrast ratio is enough power to defeat even the most extreme challenges of ambient light and is nothing short of brilliant in a darkened environment. It's also got WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution that perfectly matches many of today's widescreen laptops. And its 3D capable so you can add immersive impact to presentations or screen 3D features with a Blu-ray player.
In addition, the ML500 also projects 720p, 1035i and 1080i high definition images and it's compatible with HDMI. That means that if you connect your source to the projector with a compatible HDMI cable, the projector will be able to display over a billion colors. What you get is the smoothest, most vivid and lifelike images available.
The ML500 is designed to be simple to use. The built-in Office viewer delivers PC-free projection of Microsoft Office documents, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint from onboard memory, SD cards, or USB flash drives. Auto keystone automatically optimizes the image shape for non-standard projection setups.
Finally, at less than 2.5 pounds (1.1kg), the projector is ultra-portable and is designed so that the AC cord does not need a power brick (reducing weight and enhancing portability).
