Optoma announced the release of the UHD300X 4K HDR projector, a new DLP model based on the Texas Instruments DLP470TE chip.
This new Optoma projector comes equipped with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution and capable of reproducing the Rec.709 color gamut. With over eight million pixels, Ultra HD 4K resolution brings four times more detail than Full HD, to deliver images with rich colors. It is exploiting the very high switching speed of DLP technology to recreate a greater number of pixels.
The Optoma projector looks very similar to UHD40 both in appearance and in terms of specifications. It has a 240W UHP lamp. Also, all the features of the optics are identical: we find a throw ratio of 1.21:1 – 1.59:1, a 1.3x zoom and the lens-shift with vertical + 10, -%.
Optoma UHD300X offers a brightness of 2,200 lumens (2,400 on UHD40) and a dynamic contrast ratio of 250,000:1 (500,000:1 on UHD40). HDR support is always present in the HDR10 format. Available connections include two HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2, a VGA input, and an audio output on 3.5 mm jack, an optical digital output, a 1.5 A Type-A USB port and RS232 port. The UHD300X 4K HDR Projector price is tentatively set at £1,499.99 and it is currently listed on Amazon store in the UK.
