“We knew that we needed a short throw projector due to the room size constraints. When I saw Optoma had launched its new HD 1080p EH200ST, this looked to be the perfect choice.”
Iain Ray, part of The Peel Group’s IT Support team
“The EH200ST has a longer lamp life for the brightness than other projectors we were comparing this against. The EH200ST ticked all our boxes and, knowing Optoma’s reputation for build quality, we chose this model.”

“The throw distance calculator on Optoma’s website saved us money by giving me the confidence to choose this model without worrying about having lens shift and optical zoom. I could easily calculate the throw distance needed for 106” screen and where I should install the projector.”

“Having two HDMI inputs is also a real bonus for us as we can connect more than one source and switch between them by simply pressing a button.”

Optoma helps team roam free at MediaCityUK

Challenge: Peel Media Limited, owners of MediaCityUK, wanted to equip its meeting room with the latest technology to be able to wirelessly present high definition imagery close to the screen with no shadows.
Solution: The bright EH200ST was chosen for the installation due to its HD 1080p resolution, its short throw lens and low price. It creates the pin-sharp detail needed for maps and plans.
Results: Property managers have the freedom to walk close to the screen without obscuring the image with shadows. They can wirelessly present MediaCityUK’s HD marketing video from the Surface Pro and access a Powerpoint presentation or any other office document stored on the network.

The Challenge

Located on the banks of Manchester's historic Ship Canal, MediaCityUK is a new waterfront destination with digital creativity, learning and leisure at its heart. Its vision is to become a leading international hub for the creative and digital sectors.

It comprises an eclectic mix of more than 200 businesses including the BBC, ITV, Coronation Street, SIS, The University of Salford and Bupa. Major educational and training providers are already in MediaCityUK, complemented by a mix of restaurants and bars, and retail therapy in the Lowry Outlet.

Peel Media Limited, owners of MediaCityUK - Manchester’s creative and technological hub located on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, wanted to equip its meeting room with the latest technology to showcase its properties to prospective tenants.

It needed to give its property managers and Managing Director the freedom to roam the room wirelessly while presenting high definition images, videos, maps of the area and Powerpoint presentations. It was important, they could point out details on plans and present close to the screen without casting shadows.

The Solution

The bright EH200ST was chosen for the installation due to its HD 1080p resolution, its short throw lens and low price.

Iain Ray, part of The Peel Group’s IT Support team, was project managing the AV installation.  He said: “We knew that we needed a short throw projector due to the room size constraints.  When I saw Optoma had launched its new HD 1080p EH200ST, this looked to be the perfect choice.”

Short throw projectors are ideal for rooms where there are space constraints but where a large image is required.  These include classrooms, meeting rooms and training venues where the presenter is at the front and wants to avoid creating shadows.

Iain said: “The EH200ST has a longer lamp life for the brightness than other projectors we were comparing this against. The EH200ST ticked all our boxes and, knowing Optoma’s reputation for build quality, we chose this model.”

He added: “The throw distance calculator on Optoma’s website saved us money by giving me the confidence to choose this model without worrying about having lens shift and optical zoom. I could easily calculate the throw distance needed for 106” screen and where I should install the projector.”

The Results

The EH200ST allows the team to wirelessly present its HD marketing video of MediaCityUK from the Surface Pro and go straight onto a Powerpoint presentation or any other office document stored on the network.  It creates a bright crystal clear picture giving the pin-sharp detail needed for maps and plans. 

Property managers have the freedom to walk close to the screen without obscuring the image with shadows.

Iain said: “Having two HDMI inputs is also a real bonus for us as we can connect more than one source and switch between them by simply pressing a button.”

The EH200ST can project a super-sized 100-inch picture on a screen or wall from just over a metre away. The full 3D 1080p projector, with a powerful 10W built-in speaker, produces bright vivid colours due to its 3,000 ANSI lumen brightness.  It has two HDMI inputs and can be turned into a smart display by connecting a smartphone or tablet with a single cable using MHL to play games, stream videos and share images on the big screen.
