Five projectors produced by Optoma, a developer of projection and digital display products, have been certified as Trade Act Agreement of 1979 (P.L. 96-39) compliant, making those projectors eligible for placement on the General Services Administration pricing schedule for government equipment procurement.
The projectors certified as TAA compliant are the TL50W-GOV, TW762-GOV, TX762-GOV, TW615-GOV and TX615-GOV, says Optoma, which adds, TAA compliance is a distinction that can only be granted to products manufactured in countries certified as honoring U.S., and partner countries’, international intellectual property and trade policies.
“TAA certification is an important advantage when participating in the government market,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior director for product and marketing. “Our products have always been competitive in regards to performance in different verticals, and now TAA certification positions our products in front of an entirely new set of customers,” he said.
The TL50W-GOV represents one of Optoma’s newest additions. The unit is a portable, LED-powered, 500 LED Lumen, lamp-free projector with virtually no maintenance needed, Optoma says. The LED light sources typically last 20,000 hours while enjoying strong brightness and color performance with minimal loss over their lifetime, the company adds.
The WXGA resolution TW762-GOV and its XGA counterpart, the TX762-GOV, are high-powered, feature-rich projectors that offer flexibility and low cost of ownership, Optoma says. Both deliver an ultra-bright 4000 ANSI lumens with a 3,000:1 contrast ratio for easy-to-read text and bright, vivid images, even in 3D. Both are built with an eight-watt speaker and extensive connection options, including RS-232 and RJ45 ports for control over a network.
The TW615-GOV and TX615-GOV are high-powered, 3D-capable projectors, the company says. Both deliver 3500 ANSI lumens with a 3,000:1 contrast ratio that delivers high performance, and they feature a built-in 10-watt speaker system and wired network management, Optoma says. The TW615-GOV and TX615-GOV are both equipped with the latest color and image processing technologies from Texas Instruments, the firm adds.
