Adam Dent, Territory Manager for Optoma Middle East & Africa comments, “Our impressive growth in sales directly correlate to the increase in demand from the local market, specifically in KSA where we are currently enjoying double digit growth with our projector sales and over 15% market share*¹. We are seeing major interest in our innovative, high-definition projector solutions, in particular our Home Cinema projectors which have been in constant demand.”
“In addition, our data entry level projectors are being chosen by some of the most reputable & established organizations within key vertical sectors including Education & Hospitality,” he explains.
Optoma’s recent participation at one of the world’s biggest IT events, GITEX Technology Week, saw the official Middle East launch of the world’s smallest projector, the Optoma ‘Pico.’ To date, the new ‘Pico’ has received great interest with phenomenal feedback from visitors, creating an extended record of potential buyers.
