Fremont, Calif. - On the heels of introducing its HD33 mass-market-priced FullHD 3D DLP projector,
unveiled two 3D DLP projectors earmarked for custom installers.
Models HD8300 ($4,499 suggested retail) and the HD3300 ($1,999), are billed as the company's first FullHD 1080p 3D home-theater models designed for the custom-installation market.
The HD8300, which will ship with the HD3300 later this month, is said to build on the previous top-of-the-line 3D DLP projector model HD8200 design.
Jon Grodem, Optoma's product and marketing senior director, said the HD8300 offers 1,500 lumens of brightness, the company's latest generation frame-interpolation processing, PureMotion4D offering customized processing levels for the elimination of motion blur, and PureColor technology that fine tunes primary and secondary colors.
For placement flexibility, the HD8300 offers PureShift lens shift and a wide 1.5x zoom ratio.
The projector includes Imaging Science Foundation Custom Calibration Configuration controls, with day and night modes.
The HD8300 will accept Optoma's new active-shutter 3D-RF glasses, which use radio frequency technology linking, and includes two HDMI 1.4a compliant ports supporting both side-by-side and top-and-bottom 3D formats.
The Optoma HD3300 features 2,000 lumens of brightness, a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, PureMotion3D and PureDepth technologies, a new color-processing system to improve color accuracy, ISFccc controls, and two HDMI 1.4a compliant ports supporting both side-by-side and top-and-bottom 3D formats.
