DLP Technology®

DLP® (Digital Light Processing) is a proprietary technology from Texas Instruments™ that offers digital projection with higher contrast, faster response time, good pixel structure and virtually no color degradation.

Amazing Color

Our projectors are capable of reproducing the Rec.709 color gamut, the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic color exactly as the director intended. Our projectors can also create saturated colors, great for gaming and animated movies.

Dynamic Black Technology

This feature gives more depth to your image by smoothly adjusting the lamp output to create a stunning high contrast ratio. Bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.

UltraDetail

This technology ensures all the information contained in an image is accurately reproduced on the screen to give a stunning crystal clear, pin-sharp picture. Complex algorithms detect each frame and improve image sharpness before the frame is projected.

ISF Modes

This feature allows you to save your calibrated day and night mode settings for the ideal viewing experience.

Long Lamp Life

Reduce the number of lamp changes with long lamp life.

Vertical Lens Shift

Vertical lens shift simplifies installations by shifting the image up and down without image distortion to provide a wider range of projector placement possibilities, making it easier to position the projector in a room.

Enhanced Color Wheel

An RGBRGB color wheel increases the color ratio for richer, vivid and cinematic image.

HDR

High dynamic range (HDR) technology delivers brighter whites and deeper black levels. Optoma HDR accepts HDR10 signals with four selectable picture modes: Normal, Bright, Detail, and Film.
