Optoma Technology EPTX612RFBA overview

  • 1Description

The Optoma TX612 packs a lot of features into a surprisingly affordable package. Its 3500 lumens of projection power combined with its 3000:1 contrast ratio means it will provide a rich, vivid image in medium to large rooms even with some ambient light to contend with.

The TX612's star attraction must surely be its Texas Instruments DMD DLP chip. This 0.55" chip processes not just the three primary colors that all other chips work on, red, green and blue, but also their complements: cyan, magenta and yellow. As a result colors are so clear and lifelike that TI calls its latest version of the technology BrilliantColor. DLP chips with BrilliantColor increase the brightness of colors by 50 percent vs. DLP chips without it. An added advantage of this chip is that it requires no filter that has to be periodically cleaned and replaced, an operation that can be risky in ceiling mounted installations.

Another key attraction of this projector is its versatility and compatibility. Its power supply can auto switch between inputs of 100 and 240 Volts AC at 50/60 Hz. It's also compatible with about 40 PC and Mac resolution and frequency combinations so it's ideal for laptop-based business presentations.

But perhaps the business world is the furthest thing from your mind. You just want to watch some television. You're in luck. The TX612 is compatible with video signals in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, B, D, G, H, I, M, N and SECAM B, D, G, K, K1, L standards. And it can do 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition. Just plug it into a cable, satellite box or TV with a video out jack and you're good to go.

There's a lot to like in the TX612 so you'll want to secure your investment. There's a control panel lock, password protection and a security bar through which you can lace a security cable (available separately).

If you're looking for projection power, rich, vivid color and versatility in a very affordable package, the TX612 may be just the projector you're looking for.

3500 Lumens and a 3000:1 Contrast Ratio
The combination of 3500 lumens of light output and a 3000:1 contrast ratio is rare in a projector so affordable. It means that even if you don't watch in movie-theater darkness you'll enjoy a bright, vivid image.
DMD DLP Technology by Texas Instruments
Those bright, vivid images are courtesy of TI's Digital Micromirror Device Digital Light Processer. That's a long name for a tiny but brilliant chip. In fact TI calls the chip's output BrilliantColor. This technology processes not just the primary colors of red, green and blue but also their complements, cyan, magenta and yellow. BrilliantColor not only improves color accuracy, it brightens secondary colors as well. This combination produces a new level of color performance that increases the brightness of the colors by up to 50% over DLP projectors without BrilliantColor for accurate, true-to-life images. A bonus of DLP chips is that they don't require filters that have to be periodically cleaned and replaced thus saving you time and money.
Digital Keystone Correction
"Keystoning" happens when the projector lens is not exactly parallel with the projection surface causing opposite sides of the image to be different lengths. The TX612 can correct keystoning of plus or minus a range of 40 degrees.
World-Wide Compatibility And HDTV
This projector can accept from 100 to 240 volts at 50/60 Hz and it can accept and project television standards that range from the North American standard NTSC to NTSC 4.43, PAL (B, D, G, H, I, M, N) and SECAM (B, D, G, K, K1, L). It also can accept and display these STDV, EDTV and HDTV standards: 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.

    Optoma Technology EPTX612RFBA reviews

    TX612 3500 Lumens XGA Projector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great projector for the price You'll want to look elsewhere if you're looking for more inputs. The projector is limited to VGA, S-video and composite inputs. So no DVI, component, or HDMI inputs if you're looking for one. Despite this, if you're looking to simply give presentations and project still images, this is the projector for you. It packs a whopping 3500 lumens and 3000:1 contrast ratio that has been a great addition to our church services. We don't have to dim/turn off the lights during service to read lyrics and we can leave the bible passage up during the sermon with all the lights on in the room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for almost every day use/work. 3500 Lumens provides quality image in some of our buildings expose to out side light and also in activities out doors. The case is very conveniente, it can be carry very easy. The current price is very atractive, comparing with the initial price for 3500L. Good for frequent use(almost daily). And also very frendly use, it can be operate by a person with very low experience with this divices. We have buyed many of this projectors and so far we haven't received performance complain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but not that portable My primary use is for presentations and short movies. It has a good Lumen intensity giving a viewable image even with good ambient lighting (don't have to switch the lights or dim the room at all). For presentations it is OK where as for movies you will notice the problem with the colors especially Blue and Yellow (will never show up right as you see them on the screen or as LCD projectors) Needs to have HD input for easy connection

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I really enjoy the product. Perfect for what it was purchased for. Only draws are the difficulty of instillation with the universal mount and lack of paper manual. Projector is used for church and CD manual would have to be handy for quick reference. Paper guide is more easily assessible for trouble shooting; but I guess I could always print a copy:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Projector - filled our needs This projector is ceiling mounted 21' from the 10' wide screen and works perfectly in our church for displaying songs, announcements, etc. The brightness is good and the visual quality is good too. It meets our expectations. Would like to have had a REAR infrared detector for turning on/off - but other than that - it totally meets our needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Projector I set it up the day I recieved it and it worked! Usually I have to do a lot of trouble shooting and this set up like a dream. I expected I would need the room to be really dark, but it worked in a room that had daylight, only the thin curtains were drawn.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economic brightness This is the projector which I use for practice projection mapping. 3500 lumens works well in even there's some ambient light on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Price. More Lumens. Everything was well except the instructions came in a cd instead of a manual and we didn't have any computer to read it.
