Today, Optoma announced two new, high brightness, 4K gaming projectors available for purchase from authorized dealers, the UHD35 and UHD38. These projectors expand on the UHD30 that came out last March. Both are capable of a 240Hz refresh rate for smooth motion in games and have low input lag—an attractive feature for gamers.
The lowest input lag for the UHD35 and UHD38 is only one quarter the already impressive lag of 16ms that the UHD30 was able to achieve at 240Hz. The new projectors are spec'd at 4.2ms with 1080p/240Hz signals. At other refresh rates, Optoma says the projectors are capable of 8.9ms at 1080p/120 and 16.7ms at both 1080p/60 and 4K/60.
Both projectors use Texas Instruments' UHD-resolution (3840x2160) DLP XPR display technology with a traditional lamp light source and an 8-segment (RGBWRGBW) color wheel. Optoma specifies a light output of 3,600 ANSI lumens for the UHD35 and 4,000 ANSI lumens for the UHD38. In Dynamic Black mode, the lamp has a life of up to 15,000 hours. The projectors are compatible with both HDR10 and HLG high dynamic range content. Blu-ray 3D is also supported.
The projectors look identical and share the same collection of inputs and outputs: two HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2, an optical audio out, VGA in, USB that can supply 5V of power at 1.5A (enough for a streaming stick), 3.5mm analog audio input and output, a 12V trigger, and RS-232.
The Optoma UHD35 and UHD38 are available now for $1,299 and $1,399, respectively.
