The Full HD-resolution (1920 x 1080) Optoma EH1020 DLP Multimedia Projector is a great home theater projector that can project 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition images. And those high definition signals will stay in pristine digital form from the source to the projector thanks to the EH1020's HDMI v 1.3 input. But its education and business credentials are impeccable too.
It can sync up with more than 30 PC and Macintosh resolutions, offering the kind of flexibility you need when you don't know where and with what kind of computer you'll be using the projector next.
Can a projector offer a lesson in International Relations? If it's possible, the EH1020 can. Its 100 – 240 Volt 50/60 Hz power supply lets the projector work in almost any country with electricity. Its OSD (on-screen display) offers a choice of 23 languages. And its ability to project programming in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL B, D, G, H, I, M, N and SECAM B, D, G, K, K1, L standards means it'll work in just about any country that has television.
No matter where it is, the EH1020 projects a bright, vivid (3000 lumens) and sharp (2200:1 contrast ratio) image thanks to its Texas Instruments 0.65" Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device (DLP DMD). TI's DLP panels form images from not only the primary colors red, green and blue, but also their complements, cyan, magenta and yellow. The result is what many authorities agree is the finest color reproduction possible.
With the EH1020 saving you money isn't a onetime deal but an ongoing process. Use it in STD (standard) mode instead of BRIGHT mode and energy use is 17 percent less while lamp life soars from an estimated 3000 hours to 4000 hours. And with its DLP DMD image engine there are no filters that have to be periodically cleaned and replaced.
When you're ready to go you can pack it into its included carrying case and tote it off to its next assignment immediately, thanks to its rapid on/off feature. But don't be afraid to keep it in standby mode in between classes or presentations. In standby mode the EH1020 sips less than a single watt.
On the other hand, in a permanent installation you'll appreciate the double physical security of a Kensington slot for an optional Kensington lock and security bar through which you thread an optional steel cable. This projector can do a lot of things but once you've secured it, one thing it won't be doing is "walking away."
In addition to taking advantage of its physical security measures you can password protect projector operation and also prevent deliberate or inadvertent changes to the projector's settings.
