Optoma Technology W316ST overview

  • 1Description

The 0.5:1 throw ratio lens on the W316ST Short-Throw DLP Multimedia Projector from Optoma makes it ideal for classrooms, small conference rooms, rear projection, and other tight spaces where the projector needs to be placed relatively close to the screen. It features the WXGA (1280 x 800) format, which - at a 16:10 aspect ratio - easily adapts to the 16:9 format of HDTV, and can also "pillarbox" to show 4:3 material undistorted. With a brightness of 3600 lumens, combined with the short throw distance required, the W316ST provides sufficient output to overcome a reasonable amount of ambient light for use in rooms where the lighting cannot be fully controlled.

Just about every input possibility is covered on the W316ST. This includes an HDMI input with 3D support, two VGA inputs and one output, plus composite and S-video inputs for legacy SD equipment. There are two separate audio inputs to accompany the analog video inputs, and there is a VAO audio output that loops through the audio accompanying whichever input is selected. In case a separate sound system is unavailable, there is also a built-in 10W speaker.

An IR remote is included, featuring a laser pointer and mouse control for giving presentations. It also has RS-232 for integration with control systems such as Crestron, plus an Ethernet port for control over a local network, helping reduce IT administrative costs.

Short 0.52:1 Throw Ratio
Throw ratio is one of the most important specifications a projector lens has as it tells you the image size (width) you will get at a given distance from the screen. For example, at a 42" distance, this projector will throw an 81"-wide (96"-diagonal) image
Single-Chip DLP Technology
Uses a combination of a 0.65" chip covered in millions of micro-mirrors, and a color wheel, to produce an image. DLP features less spacing between pixels and better contrast than many comparable LCD-based systems
3600 Lumen Lamp
A single lamp provides 3600 lumens brightness in Normal mode, and is estimated to last 4000 hours (up to 7000 hours if continuously used in the lower brightness ECO+ mode). To determine the ideal brightness level for your application, you will need to take into account the screen width, distance from the projector to the screen (throw distance), amount of ambient light near the screen, and the reflectivity (gain) of the screen surface used
16:10 Native Aspect Ratio
This projector features a 16:10 native aspect ratio. This is considered a widescreen format, and comes very close to the 16:9 standard of HDTV. This format is ideal if you plan to show HD video, and can still be used for presentations - though in the case of PowerPoints, some extra space may be leftover on the sides. The projector can show 4:3 too; however, black bars (pillaring) will have to be applied, or the image will have to be stretched or cropped to fit
HDMI 1.4a Mandatory 3D Compliance
This means you can watch 3D video from most HDMI 1.4a 3D sources, including Blu-ray Discs, many computer graphics cards, and select game consoles. Active 3D glasses - such as ZD302 - available separately
Powered VGA Port
A powered VGA port enables the projector to be used with the BI-EXTBG03 wireless VGA dongle, which is available separately
Remote Mouse Control
When connected to a computer via the mini-USB type-B female port (cable available separately) it is possible to use the projector's remote to provide mouse navigation functionality. On top of that, the remote features a built-in laser pointer - effectively turning the remote into a presentation mouse

    Optoma Technology W316ST reviews

    W316ST Short-Throw DLP Multimedia Projector is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short-throw with lots of options! Absolutely great short-throw projector! We are able to fill a 9'x12' screen with only about 7' of throw space. Projection is crystal clear and this projector has a ton of inputs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I need at least 100 stars to rate this projector and service from B&H PHOTO!! Excellent video quality in a well lit room with more than enough ambient lighting than anybody needs. I used this projector in an install in a 2000 sq ft house of worship. The screen is pretty large for the sanctuary, 153 (81 H x 130), but the Optoma W316ST fills the screen with ease. Having used Optoma projectors in the past, I'm almost convinced they make some the best projectors in the business. Yes, that's a bold statement -- But they're products are consistent! One comment, the W316ST DOES WORK WITH THE HD CAST PRO (per Optoma's site; it doesn't), if you're looking for a wireless presentation solution. As for B&H, it's really hard to beat their prices and excellent service. Knowledgeable and patient reps that work hard to ensure you get the right product for your needs and if it doesn't work, they're not jerks about refunds & returns. Started out shopping B&H for install stuff, but now I buy personal gear from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will LOVE this projector I have used several models. Look no further for the best all around projector on the market. Hands down the best clarity and lumens for the money! This projector allows you to project front, rear, Top of room, bottom of room. The short throw distance is incredible! No loss of clarity when you increase the size either. If your on the fence don't be. This projector is for you. B&H is amazing to work with and will back the products they sell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile projector We bought this projector to use in one of our function rooms with a 10 foot wide roll-down screen. It only needs to be placed about 5 to 6 feet in front of the screen to produce a fairly bright 10 foot wide image. This was a big advantage for us, since the previous projector needed to be placed in the audience area some 15 to 20 feet in front of the screen. Another pleasant surprise was that the projector accepts a component video input from our DVD player through it's VGA connector. It also has all of the other common video input connectors, so we can use it with many different input sources. This projector needs to be located below the screen, so a short A/V cart has to be used when it's used with a portable 70 screen. Keystone correction was quite good on our screen, but could be a problem with screens that are high off the floor when the projector is used on a short cart. Contrast ratio was better than our previous projectors and the colors were quite vibrant. Overall, we are quite happy with this projector.
