Environmentally Friendly

The EH500 incorporates energy saving features to conserve power and extend the lamp life:


To achieve the maximum 3500hrs² lamp life time the projector should be operating in STD mode and the shut down timer should be enabled to automatically switch off the projector if it is accidentally left on when no longer required. Enabling the


Extra Features

  • Easy lamp replacement from the top cover

  • Direct power on – start up time is significantly reduced as standby mode is bypassed when the power cable is inserted into an active power outlet. This eliminates the need to use the 'Power' button on the remote control or the projector keypad.

  • Signal power on – the projector will power on when it receives a signal. This eliminates the need to use the 'Power' button on the remote control or the projector keypad.

  • Auto power off – if after a pre-determined time the projector does not receive a signal, it will turn itself off automatically, conserving power and extending the life of the lamp.

  • Key pad lock – once enabled prevents unauthorized adjustments ensuring the projector can only be controlled via the remote control.

  • +12v Trigger – electric screen control

Virtually Maintenance Free = Lower Cost of Ownership

EH500 provides lower cost of ownership, longer life and improved reliability. The filter-free projector design does not require regular filter cleaning or filter replacement, saving you time and money.

No Filter

Amazing Colors

The EH500 incorporates BrilliantColor™ technology to produce stunningly bright images with perfectly balanced life-like colors.

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 color, 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 synchronize 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 EH500 supports multiple 3D formats from various devices such as PC, Blu-ray 3D™, Sony® PS3, Microsoft® Xbox 360 or 3D TV broadcast system.

PJ-Link Compatibility

System integration control

Multiple EH500 can be monitored over LAN and can also provide the user with an email message alert in case an error occurs or a lamp fails or needs to be replaced using Crestron Roomview. The web browser interface and full support for Telnet, Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery and PJ-Link protocols, allow almost all aspects of the EH500 to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

Exceptional Connectivity / Multiple Terminals

1Lamp based projectors brightness and lifetime will vary depending on selected projector mode, environmental conditions and usage. As is common with all lamp based projectors, brightness will decrease over the lamp lifetime. LED projectors do not have a replaceable lamp and the brightness does not decay significantly over the product lifetime.
Typical lamp life achieved through testing. Will vary according to operational use and environmental condition
