OPTOMA BRINGS 4K PROJECTION HOME
Optoma has announced a new UHD65 4K projector that it says is perfect for home cinemas with the ability to project a large, 100” 4K image from just over 3 meters distance.
With a full 8.3-million-pixel display, the UHD65 includes advanced image features such as PureContrast, PureColour and PureMotion, as well as a colour management system to display accurate life-like colours.
The UHD65 uses the new 4K DLP chip which outputs 3840x2160 discrete pixels, while the chip itself has 2716x1528 micro-mirrors and uses pixel-shifting technology to achieve 4K resolution. Early reports from overseas suggest that Optoma’s implementation of pixel-shifting is excellent, with one review suggesting:
There is no question that the 4K DLP chip is capable of producing a 4K video image that is the visual equivalent in image detail of a native 4K chipset.
The UHD65 is also equipped with the latest High Dynamic Range (HDR 10) processing which they say creates a wider and richer range of colours, much brighter whites with much deeper, darker blacks.
Optoma’s latest projector is equipped with 2 x 4w integrated stereo speakers, along with the ability to connect to external sound systems via the audio output.
Via the integrated HDMI ports, dongles such as the Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV can be connected to allow direct streaming to your big screen.
The Optoma UHD65 projector is finished in a sleek black finish and along with the compact design of just 498 x 331 x 141mm (WxDxH), and vertical lens shift ability, it can be discretely integrated into just about any living space.
The Optoma UHD65 is available now for $5,299 RRP.
