  • Aimed at home entertainment rather than simply a pure movie experience, the latest projector from Optoma, the HD29GH, has a feature set to support a little bit of everything.
    Optoma has just launched a new, Full HD 1080p projector designed as a home entertainment hub for movies, games, TV, sports and photos. As such, the HD29H sports a range of features to improve the overall experience ranging from HDR compatibility to ultra-fast response times.

    Capable of receiving and displaying HDR metadata, the HD29H benefits from the enhanced contrast and colours that High Dynamic Range brings, with the lamp’s 3400 lumens providing plenty of brightness to support this.

    Developed with gamers in mind, the projector boasts an extremely quick 8.4ms latency, which is the lowest of any Optoma projector yet, and it can also accept a 1080p 120Hz signal.

    Kishan Mistry, Product Manager at Optoma said, “As well as the lightning refresh rate, this bright and versatile projector delivers high contrast and allows gamers to see far more detail and texture. The HDR imagery is also great for watching movies, live sport and TV shows.”

    Weighing less than 2.5kg, the HD29H is light enough to carry around to friends for that gaming or movie night you’ve planned, though the carry bag is an optional extra.

    In addition to the portability, easy connectivity adds to the convenience. There are 2 HDMI inputs for use with a laptop, PC, Blu-ray player, media streamer or games console. By connecting an HDMI dongle like the Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV the HD29H can even be turned into a smart projector to play games, stream videos and share photos on the big screen.

    For added convenience, the projector comes complete with an integrated speaker that delivers 10W audio - enough for a reasonably sized living space. An audio output is also included, enabling connection to external sound systems.

    Although lacking in 4K capabilities, the HD29H could tick enough boxes to be of interest as a home entertainment hub for enthusiasts looking for an allrounder.
