Billed as home entertainment projectors but with a particular emphasis on gaming, Optoma has introduced two new, low latency, 4K UHD projectors.
Having managed to hit the global No.1 spot in 4K UHD projector sales during the Q1-Q3 2020 period, Optoma must feel it is doing something right with its home entertainment hardware and its latest, the UHD35 and UHD38, improve on the popular UHD30 by boosting brightness and reducing input lag.
Both the UHD35 and UHD38 utilise the latest Texas Instruments DLP technology for 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) with a full 8.3 million on-screen pixels and both models have been certified as True 4K UHD by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). This deems them as delivering a superior experience to ‘4K PRO-UHD’ projectors, which do not meet the official 4K UHD standard.
With a respective brightness of 3600 and 4000 ANSI lumens (up from 3400 on the UHD30) to enable easy viewing in well lit living spaces, the UHD35 and UHD38 share a number of attributes including an 8-segment RGBWRGBW colour wheel for REC.709 and DCI-P3 colour gamut support, a contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1 and compatibility with HDR10 and HLG.
Supporting an image of up to 300-inches, the latest projectors come with horizontal and vertical keystone and 4-corner correction to allow for flexible placement and installation. In addition, up to 15,000 hours of operation in Dynamic Black mode means many years of entertainment from the UHD35 and UHD38.
Input response times in Enhanced Gaming Mode ranging from 4K UHD @ 60Hz to 1080P @240Hz: 4.2ms will ensure gamers keep on top of fast twitch online scenarios and dual HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 support provides connectivity to the latest 4K UHD devices.
Other connectivity options include VGA in, audio in, audio out, S/PDIF, USB-A Power along with a 12V trigger to provide control of a motorised screen.
The UHD35 and UHD38 also feature a built-in 10W speaker and Blu-ray 3D support for when the gaming session is over and it’s time to settle down with a movie.
Kishan Mistry, Senior Product Manager at Optoma said, “The new and brighter UHD35 and UHD38 4K UHD projectors are the perfect solution for dedicated gamers who are after a big screen gaming experience. They deliver detailed, life-like images and richer colours along with higher refresh and frame rates - perfect for a competitive gaming advantage.”
The retail prices for Optoma’s latest projectors are £999 for the UHD35 and £1099 for the UHD38.
