Over the past three years, home audio-visual entertainment has undergone significant changes, becoming an integral part of our daily lives. Large screens, particularly Optoma’s ultra-short-throw home projectors, have become a dominant force in this trend, attracting those who desire a cinematic experience at home, especially in smaller living spaces. To address concerns about integrating projectors into home designs, Optoma emphasizes the importance of seamless integration and aesthetics. These projectors not only offer high-quality visual enjoyment but also add a unique charm to home spaces.

Optoma’s ultra-short-throw home projectors offer several advantages for interior design. They can serve as decorative elements without being obtrusive, projecting large screen images at a short distance and allowing flexible targeting of the wall without space restrictions. The projection area can be coordinated with the wall’s color or material to create a harmonious atmosphere. Additionally, the projectors provide diverse visual effects, enabling users to switch between different backgrounds or scenes, enhancing the dynamic ambiance of the space. When combined with a wall-mounted sound system, the projectors offer a powerful entertainment experience while maintaining an unobtrusive presence.

Optoma’s series of ultra-short-throw home projectors boast excellent projection capabilities, seamlessly displaying high-definition images on walls or screens without requiring much space. Their short-throw technology transforms homes into home theaters, offering a great experience for watching movies, sports, gaming, or sharing multimedia with family and friends. The projectors can also connect to external audio systems via Bluetooth to improve sound quality and overall viewing experience.
