Effortless presenting

Enjoy hassle-free presenting using the USB Reader to project a JPEG presentation directly from a USB flash drive.

Alternatively view up to 4 PC/Laptops side-by-side at the same time, using the free Optoma Presenter software...

...or even broadcast your presentation across a wired/wireless network to as many as 8 projectors simultaneously.

Wireless support requires the optional Optoma mini-WiFi dongle accessory, available separately.

3D Technology

Using the inherent speed of DLP® technology, Optoma Full 3D projectors can output video and images at an astonishing rate of 120Hz, allowing you to show full screen, full colour, stereoscopic 3D. The 3D effect is generated by splitting this signal into two standard video streams, one for each eye. Using DLP® Link™ technology, the 3D glasses synchronise with the image on screen to filter each stream to the correct eye. Your brain then combines the two streams to make them jump into life.

The X501 supports multiple 3D formats from various devices such as PC, Blu-ray 3D™, Sony® PS3, Microsoft® Xbox 360 or 3D TV broadcast systems.

Extensive Connectivity

The X501 accepts a wide variety of computer and video input signals. Connectivity includes: HDMI, DVI-D, dual VGA (Component via adaptor), S-Video, Composite, USB Reader, VGA-Out, RS232, RJ45 and +12V trigger. In addition the optional Wi-Fi accessory can be securely connected to a dedicated hidden USB port.

Five audio inputs for HDMI, PC, video and microphone sources enable the X501 to function not only as an audio switcher and volume controller, but also as a basic PA system for larger meeting rooms; thereby eliminating complicated and costly additional audio hardware and cabling.

Green solutions

Eco+ technology from Optoma increases our commitment to reducing the impact we all make on the environment

Saving energy, saves money! Eco+ technology reduces the power consumption to as little as 30%. This intelligent feature also has a positive effect on the lamp life, increasing it up to 70% while lowering the total cost of ownership and reducing maintenance*.

Auto power off

There may be instances when the projector is left running when not in use. To help save energy if the projector is left running and no source is detected, the “Auto Power Off” feature automatically turns off the projector after a set period of time.

Eco AV mute

Stay in control of your presentation with the Eco AV mute feature. Direct your audience’s attention away from the screen by blanking the image when no longer needed. This also instantly reduces the power consumption to 30%, further prolonging the life of your lamp.

Environmentally friendly

To achieve the maximum lamp life, the projector should be operating in Eco+ mode and the auto power off feature should be enabled to automatically switch off the projector if it is accidentally left on. Enabling the <0.5W standby mode ensures the minimum energy consumption when the projector is not switched on.
