Optoma has introduced the UHD35STx, a short throw, low latency, 4K UHD home entertainment and gaming projector. Priced at $1,749, the UHD35STx is available now from authorized dealers. Optoma says the new beamer is an evolution of the earlier UHD35 model, which won accolades for creating excellent images for not much more financial outlay than a 1080p projector. It is also considered to be a step-up over the company’s own GT1080HDRx.
Where the new UHD35STx delivers over its 2021 UHD35 sibling is in its impressive 0.5:1 short throw. The UHD35, by contrast, deployed a 1.5:1 – 1.66:1 throw ratio. Otherwise, the new projector integrates all the features of the UHD35, including its 3,600 lumens brightness, image quality, resolution and ultra-low input lag. The short throw lens enables up to a 100-inch image from less than four feet away from the screen. The big screen viewing ability and short throw make the projector an obvious fit for gaming in smaller rooms or apartments.
The input responses of both the UHD35STx and UHD35 are, according to Optoma, “unparalleled in consumer projection today.” An Enhanced Gaming Mode promises to deliver an ultra-low input lag of 4ms in 1080p at 240Hz, or a 16ms response time in 4K at 60Hz.
The UHD35STx uses a DLP light engine and pixel-shifting to create a 4K (3840 x 2160) image. Optoma claims contrast measures 1,000,000:1 and can reproduce the DCI-P3 digital cinema grade color gamut. The projector also includes two HDMI 2.0 inputs, an onboard single 10-watt speaker and a possible 15,000 hours of lamp life in ‘dynamic’ mode.
