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
