3 Stars

Optoma is now shipping the CinemaX P1 Smart 4K UHD laser projector, priced at $3,299. The all-in-one, “space-saving” projector and audio entertainment system recently received the InfoComm Best of Show award by ProjectorCentral.

The unit includes an ultra short throw 4K UHD projector and integrated NuForce soundbar (with Dolby Digital 2.0 support), as well as voice control features courtesy of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The CinemaX P1 is 22.1 inches wide, and is promoted as a mobile video and audio system, as well as one targeted at permanent installation in perhaps smaller rooms and apartments.

The projector section is capable of a claimed 3,000 lumens output, an 8.3 million pixel image, and can achieve up to a 120-inch diagonal image. It also includes HDR10 and a SmartFIT correction system for “hassle-free” easier setup using a smartphone. The NuForce soundbar, meanwhile, promises to deliver “crystal-clear” sound with a wide frequency response, and is supported by aluminium full-range drivers and isolated speaker enclosures to reduce distortion. Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus decoding are also onboard.

Optoma capitalizes on its own inbuilt Smart+ features which include compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant, IFTTT smart home automation with IoT devices, and usual suspect streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, which are accessed through the Optoma Marketplace. Smart+ features enable control of the projector with typical voice commands for on/off, lighting and volume.

The projector section also claims a contrast ratio of up to 1,500,000:1 , REC.2020 and DCI-P3 color gamut, and a throw ratio of 0.25:1. Connectivity is augmented by three HDMI inputs, 2 USB ports (plus service port), optical S/PDIF out and a 3.5mm audio out.

The CinemaX P1 is available now and you can find out more specs and details direct from Optoma.
