The ProBeam BU60PST has a native 4K resolution (3840x2160) by using XPR technology—also known as pixel shifting—found on many 4K DLP projectors. A quick search on the ProjectorCentral projector database shows that the BU60PST, with its permanently attached lens and a street price of $4,999, is the by far the least expensive 6,000-lumen laser projector in current production. Others cost considerably more to start and require the purchase of a separate lens. With a footprint of 6.1 x 14.6 x 12.8 inches (HWD) and a weight of only 21.4 pounds, the BU60PST is also the smallest and lightest 6,000 lumen 4K projector in our database.
Alongside the BU60PST is the ProBeam BF60PST, a WUXGA (1920x1200) 16:10 aspect ratio projector that can be found for $3,499 with otherwise almost identical specs to the BU60PST (although it weighs one pound less). Both have a 1.6x manual zoom and can project an image ranging from a 40- to 300-inch diagonal from a distance between 9.4 and 15.2 feet. They have a horizontal lens shift of ± 20% and a vertical lens shift of ± 50%. The BU60PST has a 12-point keystone adjustment, while the BF60PST uses a four-corner keystone adjustment.
