Optoma has introduced the CinemaX P2, the successor to last year's CinemaX P1 4K ultra short throw living room laser projector.
Available at authorized retailers for $3,299 as of September 1, the CinemaX P2 currently costs $500 less out of the gate than its award-winning predecessor and improves on it in a number of ways, most notably with enhancements to image quality that will be visible and appreciated by movie lovers.in our review, where we honored the P1 with our rare Editor's Choice Award.
An Enhanced Gaming Mode has also been added to reduce input lag for gamers. And like the P1, the P2 has the ability to play Full HD 3D in all the mandatory formats.
Optoma, working off customer feedback on the P1, has improved the cosmetics in this new model, keeping the P1's modern form factor but opting this time for a white finish with gray speaker grille as an antidote to the P1's space-age, jet-black look. Behind the grille is the same 40-watt NuForce-designed soundbar system found in the earlier projector, which essentially turns the CinemaX P2 into an all-in-one entertainment system.
