Ultimate 4K home projectors

TV, gaming and movie fans can now enjoy impressive 4K cinema quality images in their own home with the launch of two new home projectors from Optoma – UHD60 and UHD65. Ultra HD 4K resolution brings content to life with incredible detail, colour and contrast for a stunningly immersive experience.

With the full 8.3 million on-screen 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. This guarantees razor sharp, vivid images capable of showing more details than standard HD and replicating the digital cinema experience.

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-chip design from Texas Instruments ensures absolute image integrity delivering over eight 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. This brings ultimate clarity to home users.

For a truly future-proofed home projector, both projectors fully support HDCP 2.2, the latest evolution of copy protection so users can enjoy the fast-growing choice of 4K content.

Equipped with Optoma’s Amazing Colour technology which includes an enhanced colour wheel and multiple modes and settings to choose from, users have the freedom to select the best setting for the content. Each mode has been fine-tuned by Optoma’s expert colour team to ensure superior colour performance. Reference mode reproduces accurate Rec.709 HDTV broadcast specification colours – ensuring reproduction of cinematic colour – exactly as the director intended.

The UHD65 also has sophisticated PureMotion frame-interpolation technology. This advanced processing eliminates motion blur or image judder, even in high-speed action films or fast-paced sports. An RGBRGB colour wheel provides accurate, true to life colour, perfect for high-definition colour reproduction. With its sleek black casing and 2200 lumens, the UHD65 produces stand-out images for those looking for a dedicated home cinema projector.

At 3000 lumens, the UHD60 produces bright images for life-like big-screen entertainment even with the lights on. Its gloss-white finish makes for discrete integration into any living space.

Packed with the latest features, these new models are whisper quiet and come complete with integrated speakers that provide powerful 8W audio, with exceptional sound quality. An audio output is also included, enabling connection to external sound systems.

Set-up is simple with vertical lens shift and a host of connection options such as two HDMI ports and Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) for compatible phones and tablets. In addition, the UHD60 and UHD65 can even be turned into smart projectors by connecting a HDMI dongle like the Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV to access popular media services and stream TV shows, films and video clips, play games and share photos on the big screen.
