CES: Optoma UHD60 the affordable 4K projector
Bluntly put, projection TV is not what it use to be at CES. With higher quality, thin LED and OLED TVs so much in popularity, projection TV has taken a backseat. But the Optoma UHD60 DLP projector ticks many of the boxes to be seen as a serious option for many.
A 4K projector with HDR support at $2,800, it’s a contender that produces a 100-inch image that’s bright enough to be visible under most lighting conditions. It uses the new UHD chip from Texas Instruments to create the better picture.
It doesn’t support the DCI/P3 wide color gamut which for those not knowledgable it what you need to support UltraHD Blu-ray and streaming, but it does include the Rec.709 color gamut. It also offers vertical lens shift, a pair of HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2, RS232 and Ethernet for control, and has an output close to 3,000 lumens.
It will go on sale in May or June of this year.
