Short throw

With a short throw lens, you can project an impressive 100” image from just over a meter away. This allows you to place the projector closer to the wall, reducing shadows so you can present with ease.

LED technology

Optoma LED projectors use individual red, green and blue LED modules to create the projected image without the need for a color wheel.

LED illumination provides consistent brightness and color performance with increased efficiency to maintain its out-of-the-box image quality. And the extraordinary life of LEDs (up to 20,000 hours) will ensure it stays clear and bright. In many situations the perceived brightness of LED projectors can be up to twice the brightness of an equivalent lamp-based projector.


Instant on/off

With instant power on/off LED technology, the ML1050ST is primed for instant plug-and-play viewing on the move.



LED auto calibration

This tiny projector has a built in sensor that auto calibrates the LEDs every time the projector is switched on. This provides you with consistent color performance and maintains the projectors out-of-the-box image quality throughout its lifetime and saving you from costly calibrations.

Bright, vibrant images - Rec.709

Perfect for business presentations, watching movies or displaying graphics, the LED powered ML1050ST delivers a wide color gamut, superior color saturation and outstanding brightness to produce intense yet accurate colors, achieving the Rec.709 standard.


Extremely portable

Weighing just 450g, this compact projector takes up little space, making it ideal for small spaces when you're on the go. The included carrying case means you can take it anywhere.
