10 Reasons to Choose Optoma for Education

The learning environment is more dynamic than ever, and this creates many amazing opportunities for educators and pupils to benefit from integrating technology in the classroom.

When it comes to choosing the right technology for traditional, hybrid or distance learning classrooms it has to be easy to deploy, intuitive to use, and an affordable solution for the modern challenges facing educators.

Optoma’s Creative Touch interactive displays and popular document cameras offer all of this and more. To be honest, we could list more, but here are the top 10 benefits of choosing Optoma as your visual solutions specialist for education.

1. All your interaction and collaboration needs

Creative Touch displays

Bring learning to life with the 3 series and 5 series Creative Touch interactive flat panel displays. Available in 65”, 75” and 86” formats, the displays offer 4K UHD resolution, easy-to-use annotation tools and extensive connectivity features for enhanced learning, sharing and collaboration.

TapCast app

For easy collaboration, the free TapCast app from Optoma allows both presenters and the audience to work together by wirelessly mirroring content or casting documents, images and videos from their Android, iOS, Windows, macOS or Chrome devices, without any additional hardware.

TapCast can also be duplicated to any other Optoma display such as another IFP, projectors or an LED display – so if you’re in a particularly large room where more than one screen is required, no lengthy cabling is needed.


The easy-to-use touchscreens also make learning more fun with built-in tools such as Vote, where presenters can collect valuable feedback instantly.


Document Cameras

Share even the smallest objects or detailed experiments with a larger audience for a more immersive and interactive learning experience.

Simply connect to distribute real-time images and videos to an in-house audience, or even remotely via video conferencing.

The flexible folding arm and built-in microphone make it perfect for any environment -doubling up as a high-performance webcam when needed.

2. Increase focus

Featuring a bright, fingerprint-resistant screen with an ultra-slim bezel, anti-glare glass, 178-degree wide-viewing angle and TUV eye comfort certification for low blue light and flicker-free operation, the Creative Touch displays allow students to comfortably view content from every seat in the room.

3. Dual app mode

Turn your touchscreen into the ultimate multi-tasking device and view two apps at the same time using dual app mode. Users can also access cloud drives, browse, create, rename, copy, move and delete files via Optoma file manager. OfficeSuite enables users to easily view, edit, and create Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, and perform advanced PDF operations. 

4. Easy connection

Presenters can easily connect to the 3 series display via the front-facing ports for HDMI and USB connectivity.

The 5 series include a quick-draw pen and holder, so you can start the session in seconds with instant whiteboard app activation.

A host of optional accessories are also available to include: WiFi module for wireless connectivity, wall mount with VESA bracket for mini PC, convenient mobile trolley, flexible use whiteboard overlays and slot-in PC modules. 


5. Full channel recording

Looking to practice your presentation or lecture? Not a problem! The Creative Touch displays come with full-screen video recording, allowing teachers to record their lessons to prepare, or even for review purposes once finished presenting.

6. Peace of mind

For many education institutions, the security of their internal network is tremendously important. By simply plugging into a LAN network, the school can rest assured that students are unable to access the screen or data without correct permissions.

7. Joan meeting widget

For classrooms and huddle spaces, the integrated Joan meeting widget and app simplifies room scheduling to increase efficiency and time management, allowing users to sync with popular calendars such as iCal and Google – to find and book rooms quickly and effortlessly.

8. Exceptional reliability and warranty options

Excellent warranty options are available exclusively for the education sector, please contact us for more information.

9. Free demonstration

You can book a visit, where we bring either an interactive display and document camera to you. Or, you can sign up for a virtual demonstration.

10. Complimentary training

We know getting to grips with new technology can be daunting, this is why an Optoma representative will visit you during, and after the installation to help with any training that might be needed.
