Optoma redefines ‘Home Theater’ in a box

optoma_movie_timeAmong the home theater equipment introduced at this years CES 2005, was Optoma’s Movie Time, The Movie Time features an integrated digital DVD player, speaker system and short throw lens projector, easily turning almost any room into a instant theater. Setup and playback is quick easy and with a suggested retail of $1499, affordable.

In theory this projector could pull double duty as a self contained presentation projector by week and home theater entertainment center by week’s end. This is a great idea and I’m honestly surprised someone hasn’t packaged such a unit together in the past, at least one as aesthetically pleasing as the ‘Movie Time’.
