It's got 4K and HDR but there's bad news for fans of 3D
Vivitek launched their new HK2288 Ultra HD 4K single-chip DLP projector at CES 2017.The new model includes Texas Instruments' 4K UHD DLP chipset which uses a 0.66-inch Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) that, whilst not technically a 4K chip, can deliver the full 8 million pixels thanks to the fast switching of the DMD and advanced image processing thus creating an affordable UHD solution. The HK2288 can deliver 2,000 lumens, it uses an RGBRGB colour wheel and has a contrast ratio of 50,000:1. The model on display was only a prototype but Vivitek said the final version will include High Dynamic Range, specifically HDR 10. The projector will also have manual lens shift and a 1.5 zoom ratio, along with a 10-bit video, HDMI 2.0a and the company hopes to add a low input lag mode for SDR and HDR gaming. Vivitek said that the HK2288 will have a colour gamut that will definitely hit Rec. 709 but that could be wider by the time the projector is released. One feature that it won't have is 3D because Vivitek felt that 3D is no longer important and they wanted to keep the price down. The HK2288 will be released worldwide in the second quarter and Vivitek hope that pricing will be below $5,000.
