Optoma has officially launched the two UHD single-chip DLP projectors that the company first announced at CES--at even lower price points than previously stated. The UHD60 ($1,999) and UHD65 ($2,499) use the new Texas Instruments 4K chipset to produce a 3840 by 2160 resolution. Both projectors support HDR10 High Dynamic Range playback, as well as the wider DCI-P3 color gamut. The consumer-oriented UHD60 is rated at 3,000 lumens, with a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, while the custom-oriented UHD65 (shown here) is rated at 2,200 lumens with a 1,200,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Both projectors are now shipping.
Optoma is shaking up the home theater and home cinema markets with two of the industry's first 4K UHD projectors at market-shattering prices. The Optoma UHD60 and UHD65 are state-of-the-art consumer projectors that deliver the highest resolution for home theater available today at a fraction of the cost of other 4K projectors. As the number one manufacturer of consumer 1080p projectors for the home, according to the 2016 U.S. Projector Census from PMA Research, Optoma continually looks to improve upon the quality, ease of integration and price of projection to make it more accessible to every home.
With four times the pixels of 1080p, the Optoma UHD60 and UHD65 feature 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution to deliver a razor-sharp image with an 8.3-million-pixel image on screen. High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatibility with open standard HDR10, along with REC.2020 wide color gamut and DCI-P3 coverage, guarantee strikingly life-like color, with bright whites and deep blacks. Both models are also equipped with high quality stereo sound to deliver crisp, sharp audio for watching movies and TV, playing video games or enjoying any other type of entertainment.
The Optoma UHD60 and UHD65 home projectors also feature vertical lens shift and a 1.6X zoom for easy installation, delivering an incredible 4K UHD image of up to 300 inches. With two HDMI and one HDCP 2.2 ports each, both projectors provide superior 4K UHD device and content compatibility options.
