New HD and 4K projectors are now available.
Optoma has announced the release of its latest projector models. The newly launched products include the UHZ65 4K UHD projector and the HD39Darbee 1080p projector.
"The Optoma UHZ65 is the culmination of years of design iterations, engineering and testing to bring the highest quality home cinema projector to market for a price that consumers can afford," said Brian Soto, head of product management, Optoma Technology. "With 4K content now readily available, and entertainment options always expanding, we are delivering on our goal to provide an entertainment experience that can truly envelop a room and an audience at home."
The UHZ65 uses a powerful laser phosphor light engine and offers a resolution of 3840x2160 with 8.3 million pixels via XPR video processing technology with fast switching. In addition, the projector is rated for about 3,000 lumens and a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio with Dynamic Black enabled. Likewise, the unit supports high dynamic range with HDR10 capabilities, along with wide color gamut support. HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 is integrated as well, and the device features vertical lens shift and a 1.6x optical zoom.
Optoma's UHZ65 4K Laser projector is now available for an estimated street price of $4,499 from stores like ProjectorPeople.com, ProjectorScreen, ProjectorSuperstore, Full Compass, and Visual Apex.
Meanwhile, the HD39Darbee offers 1080p projection, 3D support, and integrated DarbeeVision image enhancement, which uses neuro-biologic algorithms to provide improved detail, depth, and object separation.
