Optoma launches new 4K UHD home DLP projectors
UHD60 available now, UHD65 coming August 2017
Optoma has announced the launch of two new home 4K DLP projectors, the UHD60 and UHD65.
Although these projectors don't actually use a native 4K chip, they are capable of delivering a perceivable image composed of 8.3 million pixels. The new models meet the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) requirements for 4K UHD and comply with the CTA High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible display standards.
Joe Ahmed, Head of Marketing at Optoma EMEA, said: “We are incredibly excited to launch our much anticipated first 4K UHD HDR compatible home projectors, the UHD60 and UHD65. The advanced DLP single-chipdesign from Texas Instruments ensures absolute image integrity delivering over 8 million pixels to screen. Without doubt the 4K UHD experience requires the biggest of images, which the two new projectors deliver at an affordable price to home users.”
Capitalising on the fast switching speed of the DLP chip with XPR technology and advanced image processing, 8.3 million pixels are delivered to the screen without alignment issues, especially critical at 4K, with four times as many pixels as 1080p.
Both projectors support HDCP 2.2 and are equipped with Optoma’s Amazing Colour technology which includes an enhanced colour wheel and multiple modes and settings to choose from; the Reference mode reproduces accurate Rec.709 HDTV broadcast spec colours.
The UHD65 also has PureMotion frame-interpolation technology designed to eliminate motion blur or image judder. An RGBRGB colour wheel promises accurate, true to life colour and a claimed 2200 lumens output from the UHD65, whilst the UHD60, meanwhile, is claimed to output 3000 lumens
Optoma promises both the new models are whisper quiet in operation and come complete with integrated speakers that provide 8W of audio power.
Set-up is simple, says Optoma, with vertical lens shift and a range of connection options such as two HDMI ports and Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) for compatible phones and tablets
The UHD60 is available now (RRP £2,499.99) and the UHD65 will be available from August (RRP £2,999.99).
