Optoma launched the national competition in the run up to the World Cup and received hundreds of nominations from right across the UK to win a new 1080p Optoma projector, ceiling mount and screen. 

 Landlady from The Jolly Sportsman, Deborah Wilbee, said: “I am absolutely thrilled.  This will not only provide a bigger picture for the games but also create a great atmosphere for our customers watching the football.”

All of the nominators from the winning pub were also entered into a draw to win a home projector.

The prize draw for the nominator was held today (23 May) and electrician Steve Turner, also from Chesham, was drawn as the winner.

Steve Turner said: “I am really happy and surprised to win.  It will mean I can watch the football on a big screen at home as well in the pub.”

The pub will win a bright (3,500 lumens) full HD 1080p resolution projector which incorporates BrilliantColor™ multi-colour processing technology to bring stunning, vibrant colour to the screen.

Steve will win a bright (2,500 lumens), small, sleek and stylish Optoma projector for home.  Easy to use with games consoles, DVD players, digital satellite/TV boxes, & PCs/laptops, the projector is perfect for watching the football, gaming or catching a movie on the big screen at home.

Optoma uses DLP® technology for its image quality and unmatched reliability. The reflective nature of DLP® micro-mirror technology provides highly efficient bright images with great contrast whilst maintaining precise colour accuracy and natural, real-world colour reproduction.
