    OPTOMA BREAKS PRICE & PERFORMANCE BARRIERS AGAIN

    WITH ALL-NEW FULL 1080p 3D HOME THEATER PROJECTOR


    HD33 Packs New, Proprietary Technologies and Features; Will Hit the Streets at $1,499


    FREMONT, Calif. | August 16, 2011 | Bringing Hi-Def 3D projection to its most

    affordable price point ever, Optoma, the best-selling DLP projector brand in the

    Americas, has introduced the HD33, the first full 1080p 3D projector available for

    less than $1,500. Incorporating several new proprietary technologies and design

    features, the HD33, with an end-user price of $1,499, is available now through leading

    brick & mortar and online retailers.


    “3D is best done big, and you can’t beat projection for big screen cinema,” said

    Jon Grodem, Optoma’s senior director of product and marketing, “The HD33 makes 3D

    available to millions more consumers than ever before, and is a great example of why

    Optoma has earned a reputation for delivering industry-leading innovation and outstanding

    quality.”


    According to Grodem, the 1800 ANSI lumen HD33 offers more than just full

    compatibility with all 2D and 3D standards. It incorporates several new proprietary

    technologies that deliver a truly dynamic cinematic experience. Optoma’s new

    PureMotion3D frame interpolation processing reduces judder to create smoother video

    sequences in both 2D and 3D content. PureDepth, a brand-new technology developed

    by the company, optimizes the projector’s brightness and image configuration, ensuring

    stunning image quality, again in both 2D and 3D. And a new color processing system

    provides improved color accuracy, contrast, black levels and shadow details in image

    sizes ranging from 35 inches to more than 300 inches.


    The HD33 has also been developed in parallel with the company’s new 3D-RF

    glasses, which use RF (radio frequency) technology and have been specifically

    designed to maximize brightness & contrast while eliminating the line of sight and

    synchronization issues commonly experienced with systems using infra-red (IR)

    emitters. The new glasses are fully rechargeable; the emitter is included with the

    projector, while the glasses will be sold separately.


    The HD33 supports all the HDMI 1.4a mandatory 3D formats, including both

    Side-by-Side and Top & Bottom formats, and more. To further enhance 3D

    compatibility, Side-by-Side and Top & Bottom formats can be manually enabled to allow

    other non-HDMI 1.4a compatible devices, such as older set top boxes, Xbox360, or

    PCs, to display 3D via the VGA or HDMI ports. Accordingly, the HD33 offers two

    HDMI 1.4a ports, one VGA port, as well as connections for component video, composite

    video, RS-232, a +12V trigger, and a VESA 3D Port.

    3D content can be viewed with RF glasses or DLP Link-based 3D active shutter

    glasses when used with a 3D-ready player.
