Video projector brand Optoma introduced Tuesday the UHD35 and UHD38 4K DLP projectors offering fast, low latency 4K UHD gaming and bright movie presentation.

The Optoma UHD35 ($1,299 street, $1,499 suggested retail price) and UHD38 ($1,399, street, $1,599 suggested retail price) (check links for latest available prices) are successors to Optoma’s popular UHD30, offering 3,600 and 4,000 lumens of peak brightness, respectively.

With a new generation of video gaming consoles upon us, each model has been optomized with response times for low lag time, to provide competitive advantage on very large screens, in addition to high quality 4K UHD/HDR picture quality for video and movie enjoyment, the company said.

Both single-chip DMD models offer TI pixel shifting technology to present 8.3 million pixels visible to the eye at one time on home theater screens.

Optoma said both models conform to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) True 4K UHD certification “and produce 4 million more pixels than inferior 4K Pro UHD projectors in the market that do not meet the official 4K UHD industry standard”.

The models are listed with up to 15,000-hours of lamp life, when using Dynamic Black mode, which also enables a lower total operating cost, the company said.
