Incredible Power, Efficiency, and Durability in a Single Solution
The Optoma ML550 provides a compact design and vivid LED performance. Designed by the leader in LED-based projection, the ML550 sets a new standard for brightness at 500 ANSI Lumens. LED brightness cannot be easily compared to lamp-based brightness. LED brightness lets users create larger images in rooms with more light while still allowing for easy viewing. With a wider color gamut than standard lamp projectors, the ML550 delivers more vivid colors. Delivering Native WXGA resolution, this projector creates crisp, clear widescreen images of up to 100 inches on most surfaces. This DLP Pico projector allows users to share detailed presentations (with 10,000:1 contrast ratio) without being hooked up to a computer.
Weighing in at less than 14.1oz and measuring a compact 4.1 x 1.5 x 4.2 inches, the ML550 supports the following video signals: HDTV (up to 1080p), NTSC, and PAL. Computer compatibility includes resolutions up to WXGA (1280 x 800) through VGA and HD (1920 x 1080) through HDMI.
User controls and media navigation are provided through an innovative on-screen menu. User support is available in 16 languages. The ML550 is 3D ready, delivering XGA resolution 120HZ thru the VGA port (the equivalent of 3D-PC). The projector can deliver a 50-inch 3D image with plenty of brightness.
LED Design Advantage
The ML550's LED technology delivers low power consumption that creates 100" images with less than half the power a typical 42-inch LCD television uses. The same LED technology provides vivid color, durability, and long life that make the projector attractive to price-sensitive small business and consumer users.
The LED light source has an estimated lifetime of more than 20,000 hours (equivalent to using the projector four hours every day for over thirteen years). LED is incredibly cost effective compared to lamp-based projectors. For example, users with a lamp-based projector would have to replace the lamp in the projector at least four times over 20,000 hours, compared to the completely maintenance-free LED lamp.
The LED-based design, in addition to having low power usage and eliminating the use of mercury and other hazardous materials, allows for cool operation which in turn allows for the compact size.

Optoma projectors are designed to provide the features that you need today and a path to grow into other capabilities as you need them.
Green by Design
As part of the Optoma ProJect Green program, Optoma's Pico projectors incorporate LED technology. These projectors:
- Are designed to be compact and lightweight, which ensures a reduction in the production of green house gas emissions during transportation.
- Incorporate an LED light source. LED lamps last 20,000 hours (or 9.6 years of 40 hour per week use) for long life. LEDs produce less heat and consume less power compared to traditional projector lamps for excellent energy savings. LEDs do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials.
- Use minimal packaging to create a smaller ecological footprint at disposal. The entire package is recyclable. In addition, the Pico's manual is delivered in digital format on the projector's internal memory to eliminate paper printouts.
- Comply with RoHS standards by eliminating lead and other hazard materials.
