Optoma Brings High Brightness to the Home…

Optoma has lifted the embargo on a home cinema projector that we heard about in July, with a cinematic 24fps mode and a gaming mode that lowers response times and raises the contrast ratio.

Optoma has built in a 1.5x optical zoom, +20 deg vertical lens shift and +/-40 deg keystone correction to assist installation. It is a DLP model utilising TI’s BrilliantColor technology (10-bit displayable colour); colour uniformity is guaranteed for five years.

Resolution is 1920 x 1080, with a 30,000:1 contrast ratio. The 310W lamp will last up to 4,000 hours and provides 3,000 lumens of brightness. Sound is provided by the dual in-built 15W speakers.

With a throw ratio of 1.35-2.05:1, the HD36 can throw a 30″ – 300″ image from 1.2m – 10m from the screen.

HDMI, DVI-D, VGA (x2), S-Video, composite and USB-B (x2) inputs are featured, with a USB-A port providing power for devices such as Google Chromecast and Optoma’s WHD200 wireless projection system.

The HD36 measures 286 x 280 x 162mm and weighs 4.5kg. It is available now for
