True 4K UHD Resolution
Ultra HD 4K resolution delivers sharper, life-like images and richer colours – allowing you to sit closer to the screen and enjoy a more immersive experience.
Our DLP projectors provide CTA (Consumer Technology Association) approved True 4K UHD resolution, capable of projecting 8.3 million on screen pixels. That’s four times more detail than Full HD and twice as many from competing technology, which only delivers 4.1 million pixels.
HDR and HLG compatible
Capable of receiving and displaying both HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) HDR content. This Optoma projector allows you to see far more detail and texture. Objects look more solid and lifelike and the extra detail creates a greater sense of depth.
Watch your movies, TV shows and play games with stunning colours in any environment. Optoma projectors provide reliable performance suitable for any content and environment. Our home projectors are capable of reproducing the Rec.709 colour gamut, the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic colour exactly as the director intended. Or more saturated colours for a punchy looking image, great for gaming and animated movies.
Optoma laser projectors use high-quality lasers to create the projected image. In many situations the perceived brightness from laser illumination projectors can be twice that of an equivalent lamp-based model. They also deliver increased efficiency to maintain consistent brightness, superior colour performance, instant on/off and an extraordinary life span of up to 30,000 hours.
Colour Management System (CMS)
Display accurate lifelike colours to best match your viewing environment. This unique feature provides you with the flexibility to fine-tune the colour settings for optimal precision.
This feature allows you to save your calibrated day and night mode settings for the highest possible viewing experience.
Using sophisticated frame-interpolation technology, advanced motion control processing eliminates motion blurring or image judder, even in high-speed action sequences.
Optoma projectors can display true 3D content from almost any 3D source, including 3D Blu-ray players, 3D broadcasting and the latest generation games consoles.
Dual HDMI inputs
Play games, stream videos and share photos on the big screen in the comfort of your own home. With dual HDMI inputs, you can easily connect to your games console, set-top box, laptop, PC, Blu-ray player or media streamer with a single cable. You can even turn it into a smart projector by connecting an HDMI dongle like the Google Chromecast™, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV™ or Roku® stick.
Built in media player
Watch movies directly from your projector without the need of a laptop or PC by using the built-in media player. Simply copy your files to a USB stick and watch them on the big screen.
Enhanced gaming mode
Enhanced gaming mode optimises your projector for maximum contrast and vivid colours to capture every detail. It also reduces input lag down to as little as 4.00ms for lightning-fast response times.
Note: When this setting is enabled some settings will be disabled. Please refer to the user manual for more information.*
240Hz smooth motion
Enjoy ultra-smooth fluid motion and reduced ghosting. A high refresh rate makes it easier to keep track of the action, giving you a better chance of hitting your target earlier. Ideal for fast action gaming.
*1080p240Hz PC gaming
Get right inside the action with the most immersive experience possible – a huge screen up to 300in.* Far larger than the average TV, split-screen multiplayer games are more enjoyable to play on the big screen.
Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps). To preserve the purity of the original image, Optoma projectors can accept high definition sources at 24 fps to display movies exactly as the director intended.
Complete your home entertainment experience with the convenience of a powerful built-in speaker for exceptional sound quality and an easy set up without the need for costly external speakers.
Use the USB-A port to power an HDMI dongle, such as Google Chromecast.
Vertical Lens Shift
Simplify installation with vertical lens shift, which provides a wider range of projector placement possibilities. This makes it easier to position the projector in your room and enables a wider range of screen size options.
Adjust individual points to get the image perfectly square using the advanced built-in geometric correction tool. Ideal if you are not using a screen and have an uneven wall you want to project onto.
Wall colour adjustment
Don’t have a white wall or a projector screen? No problem! With the “Wall Color” setting, you can alter the projected image based on the colour of your wall. With six options to chose from you can easily adjust for blackboard, light yellow, light green, light blue, pink and grey walls to get the most accurate color gamut.
