Optoma has begun shipping the device it hopes will make 4K projecting more accessible to the average consumer.
The $1,499 street-priced UHD50, first unveiled at CES in January, features 2,400 lumens, a 500,000:1 contrast ratio, RGBRGB color wheel and HDR10 with Rec.2020/DCI-P3 wide color gamut compatibility. It also boasts 15 percent vertical lens shift and a 1.3x zoom, with the ability to display a 4K Ultra HD image up to 300 inches.
The projector, which features a lamp light source and a Texas Instruments DLP chip, comes with two HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 support.
It’s currently available through Amazon, Fry’s Electronics and BestBuy.com.
Optoma’s previous entry-level 4K projector was priced at $1,999.
