Optoma’s HD27 Combats Ambient Light

Optoma’s HD27 is the company’s newest DLP projector for the home entertainment space, bringing Rec.709 support and a compact form factor for ease of relocation.

Multiple picture modes are built in to the unit, including Reference (replication of Rec.709) and Gaming (maximising contrast and colour while lowering response times). It is able to show 10-bit colour, and a 10W speaker is built in.

Resolution is 1920 x 1080, and brightness is relatively high for a home projector, at 3,200 lumens. This is supplied by a 195W lamp (lasting 5,000 – 8,000 hours). 28″ – 305″ images can be thrown from 1m – 10m (1.48-1.62:1 throw ratio), and the projector features a 1.1x manual zoom. +/-40° keystone correction is built in.

MHL-HDMI, HDMI and USB-A ports are featured. The projector measures 298 x 230 x 97mm and weighs 2.4kg.

Optoma will begin to sell the projector soon. A price has not been shared.
