There seems to be a surge of projectors in recent times.
And it’s a good thing too. The Optoma UHD65, unlike others we’ve covered in recent times, uses a 4K UHD DLP chip outputting at 3840x2160 resolution. This translates to 8.3 million distinct pixels best shown with native 4K content.
With support for 4K, am I correct in assuming it can handle native 4K content?
Yup, it supports HDR leveraging REC. 2020 wide colour gamut and DCI-P3 colour-gamut coverage delivering natural visuals imitating real life. If non-HDR videos are being played, it will automatically be scaled to fit the colour depth the UHD is capable of.
But with 4K and HDR enabled, won’t the output for fast-motion scenes be poor?
This is where the UHD65 shines. It uses PureMotion to deliver a smooth and stable picture that should be free from side effects. Advanced motion-control processing eliminates motion blurring or image judder even in fas- motion video sequences using sophisticated frame interpolation technology.
That’s a whole bunch of words I did not get but I’ll take your word for it. What I really want to know though, is will I be able to game on it?
You can but the response time will be too slow for serious gamers, especially in multiplayer where matters of life or death are decided within a
milisecond. Casual gaming which doesn’t need perfect reflexes should be okay.
Oh well. Please tell me installation will be easier.
Optoma has done well here by providing a considerable amount of flexibility in terms of setting up the projector with its 15 per cent vertical lens shift and 1.6x optical zoom. This allows you to get a larger image without placing the projector too close to the wall or display.
I almost forgot to ask about detail preservation!
Ah yes. You know how some projectors aggressively smoothen out the image, making it look like a blurry Photoshop filter? UltraDetail technology ensures that all information detail available in an image is faithfully reproduced. It even allows for fine adjustments to image clarity and sharpness.
The lamp life on the UHD65 is 10,000 hours in ECO mode and 15,000 hours in Dynamic mode
