Optoma has unveiled its UHZ50 4K laser home theater projector ($2,799) with a claimed 3,000 lumens of brightness and 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio. The company promises that the new beamer will “produce razor-sharp images with exceptional clarity and vibrancy for movies, TV shows, games, and sports.”
The UHZ50 features HDR10 and HDR brightness adjustments with 100% Rec. 709 and DCI-P3 color gamut. According to the Taiwanese manufacturer, TI’s DLP chip tech is combined with the company’s own DuraCore laser technology for “high quality” and “sharp” images across the projector’s lifespan. The laser light source should ensure 30,000 hours of use. As well as four-corner correction, there is a 1.3X zoom, keystone and vertical lens shift for optimizing on-wall or dedicated screen image manipulation. Connectivity supports HDMI 2.0 inputs, one with eARC, and two USB ports for media sticks and dongles. There are twin 10W speakers onboard.
“With the introduction of the Optoma UHZ50, we are bringing true 4K laser technology home to even more consumers by reducing overall costs without compromising the quality of their personal home entertainment experiences,” said, Billy Harrison, Product Manager at Optoma. “As consumers are seeking more home entertainment and content options that fit their unique needs whether they’re gamers, streaming movies or viewing personal photos, we remain focused on delivering versatile and innovative solutions that take the home theater experience to new levels.”
Keen console experts are supported with an Enhanced Gaming mode of 16.7ms response time in 4K at 60Hz and 4ms in 1080P at 240Hz. An additional Optoma Creative Cast app enables wireless sharing of videos and images on the big screen, as well as a sharing option from up to four devices via ultra-fast 5GHz Wi-Fi.
