Optoma EMEA celebrates 20 year anniversary
“We have always prided ourselves on our ability to develop products that are future-focused. For 20 years, we’ve been listening to the needs of our customers and creating the solutions they’re demanding.” said Thierry Millet, Managing Director of Optoma EMEA. “With our core values of reliability, innovation and customer focus, we are taking this approach into the next two decades, leading the charge to offer even better products and solutions.”
Since it was founded, Optoma EMEA has introduced numerous pioneering products, including the revolutionary DVD all-in-one projector in 2005 (DV10) and the world’s first Pico projector, PK101, which won Time Magazine’s product of the year in 2008. Optoma has expanded its business into audio with the acquisition of the acclaimed Californian consumer audio company, NuForce, in 2014.
More recently, the company introduced the world’s first projector to feature DARBEE Visual Presence™ technology, which is exclusive to Optoma projectors. Optoma also recently launched its first ProScene laser illumination projector range which offers exceptional reliability with DuraCore and MultiColor features for professional installations.
Optoma products have consistently improved the projection experience and needs of consumers and professionals while forging partnerships that keep the company at the forefront of industry trends. Optoma has featured in a number of high profile projects with world renowned brands, most recently a showstopper daylight-visible window display in Harrods for Louis XIII cognac which is live until 25 April 2017.
SY Chen, the original founder of Optoma EMEA, said: “I am so proud that Optoma has reached this milestone. The company has forged strong partnerships and grown its loyal customer base across the region to become a multi-award winning technology brand.”
Originally established in Taiwan, SY Chen opened the Optoma EMEA headquarters in the UK in 1997. The company now has regional offices throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa. The organisation has maintained its dynamic and localised strategic business structure. “This has allowed Optoma to ensure a consistent competitive advantage by meeting the needs and challenges of the local channel partners”, Chen commented.
