While it’s pos­si­ble to spend up to $50,000 for a 4K pro­jec­tor from the likes of Sony, the en­trylevel UHD pro­jec­tor mar­ket has bot­tomed out at around the $5,000 mark since eco­nom­i­cal mod­els first ar­rived about a year ago now. That’s about to change how­ever, with US pro­jec­tor-maker Optoma launch­ing a cin­e­maqual­ity 4K pro­jec­tor priced at US$1,999. There is a bit of trick­ery in­volved in bump­ing up of the pixel count on this unit, but the early re­ports are that the 24fps qual­ity is vis­ually on par with its more ex­pen­sive pre­de­ces­sors. With a 1,000,000:1 con­trast ra­tio, 3,000 Lu­mens bright­ness, 140-inch pro­jec­tion size and the en­hanced HDR10 colour gamut, this pro­jec­tor has a lot go­ing for it. JB
