Designed with sustainability in mind - Optoma Green Badge

Optoma is a forerunner in green product design. Optoma’s SSI products take things a step further with sustainability incorporated into all aspects of a product, including design, production, packaging, and logistics.

Optoma Green Badge represents Optoma’s commitment to sustainability. Our primary ways of lowering the environmental impact of our products are centered on four areas.

azh500 Green
AZH500 Plastic

The use of environmentally friendly materials generate less waste

The use of environmentally friendly materials for products and during production.

According to UK Plastics Pack 2022, it takes 75% less energy to make a plastic bottle from recycled plastic than virgin materials. Our product design team works closely with suppliers to identify environmentally friendly recycled materials that minimize waste that would otherwise go into landfills and reduce the use of virgin plastics. Optoma is committed to producing SSI-based projectors that are made with 50 % post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.

Moreover, Optoma complies with WEEE, RoHS, and REACH regulations that restrict the use of hazardous substances during production, which helps protect landfills from permanent contamination.

AZH500 Sustainable

Sustainable Packaging

Optimized packaging made with more recycled and reusable materials

Optoma brings sustainability to the consumer unboxing experience. Our choice of materials ensures that our packaging can be easily recycled and reused to start another packaging journey.

Our outer carton boxes are made from up to 85% recycled material, and we have replaced EPE foam cushioning with recycled paper and paper mold materials without compromising the durability of the packaging!

Four corner correction

Adjust the keystone in both the vertical and horizontal plane. You can individually warp each corner of the image to create a perfectly square image. Ideal for uneven walls or where projector placement is awkward and needs to be installed at an angle.

AZH500 Zoom

1.3x Zoom Range

A large zoom range enables multiple placement possibilities at a variety of distances from the projection screen.

An advantage to this is that expensive interchangeable lens projectors can be substituted with a more cost effective solution whilst still retaining a diverse choice of positioning options.

AZH500 Dust Resistance

IP6X Airtight optical engine

Independently tested and certified to IEC standard 60529 with an IP6X dust resistance rating. Outstanding dust resistance combined with exceptional brightness ensures industry leading durability; paramount for 24/7 maintenance free operation in challenging environments.
