Optoma has today unveiled three projectors designed for gamers heading up with the $1,599 UHD50X, the “world’s first” 240Hz, 4K UHD home theater projector.

The new unit includes 3,400 lumens of brightness, claimed 500,000:1 contrast ratio, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) compatibility and 4K UHD resolution, making it suitable for environments with high ambient light. An Enhanced Gaming Mode and low input lag of 16ms in 1080p at 240Hz on PCs and 25ms at 4K 60Hz on PCs and consoles, should allow for smooth gaming experiences. The UHD50X also features an HDMI 2.0 input with HDCP 2.2 support for connectivity to 4K UHD devices, and a 12V trigger enables control of motorized screens. The UHD50X is equipped with 10% vertical lens shift and a 1.3x zoom for ease of placement. Lamp life is rated at up to 15,000 hours in Dynamic Black Mode, and can produce an image size of up to 302 inches.
