Optoma Releases Projectors for Gamers

The new line of GameTime projectors is affordable, capable, and portable.

Projectors are great for movies, and depending on your arrangement, they can be even better for games. Especially if you’re on the move a lot. Optoma’s new line of GameTime projectors was designed with that in mind.

Despite the name, the GT360 was created with Wii players in mind. It’s the entry level GameTime projector, but it’s more than enough for the Wii. It’s got an 800 x 600 resolution, and supports input resolutions of up to 1080p. You’ll be able to pick it up for $599.

The GT720 was designed to work with high definition consoles. Its 1280 x 800 widescreen resolution will handle a 720p signal with ease, but you won’t be getting full 1080p. Like the GT360, it’s got twin 5-watt speakers for audio. It’s the highest priced of the GameTime series at $799.

Falling somewhere between the two is the GT700. It’s got the same resolution as the 720, but sacrifices a bit when it comes to brightness. It boasts 2300 lumens, rather than the 2500 of the others, and a contrast ratio of 2,500:1. It’s also a bit cheaper, at $749.
