Optoma is proud to announce that they are now shipping their ES522 and EX532 projectors worldwide. If you’ve heard of these projectors before it was because they have been available in Korea for some time now.
Both the ES522 and EX532 will feature DLP technology with 2800 ANSI lumens and a 300:1 contrast ratio. That’s where the similarities end, however, as the ES522 will feature an 800 x 600 resolution while the EX532 will feature a 1024 x 768 resolution.
While these are marketed towards the educational/corporate market they would make a good low-cost alternative to hold you over until you save up to buy a better projector. Just how low-cost, we aren’t sure as no official retail price has been announced.
