Optoma has unveiled two new 4K HDR home theater projectors, the $ 1,300 UHD35 and its slightly more powerful sibling, the $ 1,400 UHD38. They look just like every other bulb-based projector on the market, but inside their plain white shells, Optoma has incorporated some technology that will make these models a lot more attractive to gamers.
Home theater projectors actually do one thing: they provide the largest image size for the lowest price. A nice, large 150-inch image or larger console or PC is a real attractive way to play games, but the downside of these projectors is that their input intervals and response times are usually too slow for serious gamers, Things are needed as soon as possible. This is where the UHD35 and UHD38 come.
Equipped with an enhanced gaming mode, the two projectors boast an input lag of at least 4.2 milliseconds. This may not be a big thing compared to dedicated gaming monitors, which can be as low as 0.7ms, but in the projector world, the UHD35 and UHD38 are Speed Monsters – almost twice as much as the previous fastest model Optoma. ours.
Response time is equally impressive. If you set your game’s resolution and refresh rate to 1080p at 240Hz, the UHD3X models can change to a banging performance of 4.2ms. Even their slowest response rate when using 4K at 60Hz is not as bad as projectors go.
Those specs are sure to please gamers, but these projectors are every bit as capable as standard viewing. Too. The difference between the two models as you have no doubt is the brightness. The UHD35 ejects 3,600 lumens, while the UHD38 can produce 4,000 lumens. Their bulbs are evaluated for up to 15,000 hours of life before being replaced. They support both HLG and HDR10 formats of high dynamic range (HDR) content. There is also support for Rec.709 and DCI-P3 color locations, although Optoma has not said what percentage each projector can display.
Optoma claims that unlike other projectors labeled 4K UHD, but actually has a lower native resolution, the UHD 35 and 38 have a true native resolution of 3840 x 2160 – which earned both of these models a true 4K UHD certification from the Consumer Association Has done (CTA).
The image size can be as large as 300 inches depending on the distance from the screen. The back panel sports a VGA port with two HDMI 2.0 HDCP 2.2 inputs, a powered USB port, an optical output, an analog input and output for audio and a 12-volt trigger port with a motorized screen.
However, we can’t imagine that anyone would want to use it, it also has a built-in 10-watt speaker, just in case a large screen game is required on your screen so you can take it away from your home theater setup Let’s go.
