Optoma provides a universal API for their range of projectors for both IP and RS232 based controls. The Chowmain Optoma universal projector driver for ELAN provides seamless integration of all Optoma projectors that support this API and allows you to control all the standard features you would expect with a projector and more.  Note that the CinemaX line of projectors are not supported as they do not have an API and can only be controlled via IFTTT or Alexa.

Which projectors are supported?

This driver utilises the currently available settings from the Optoma universal API. Current and future projectors that adhere to this API will work with this driver.

Note that the CinemaX line of projectors are not supported.  These do not have an API and can only be controlled via IFTTT or Alexa.

Please be sure your projector has the telnet protocol turn on in its settings before using IP control.

What cool things can i do with this driver?

  • The driver has the ability to fire events on warnings and errors. This makes it easily for integrators to proactively service their customers when the projector is due for a bulb change or requires immediate attention.
  • On projectors that have lens memory you can recall these lens memory positions via the driver's programming options.
  • Have the screen blank or lens closed until certain conditions, like theatre curtains being fully opened, are met
  • Custom programming to change the 3D sync setting of the projector or have the projector automatically set a 3D sync option depending on the source
  • Dynamically set the color temperature and picture modes depending on the input source
