Ultra-short-throw model targets film fans, telly addicts and gamers
Able to cast a 100in image from a distance of just 30cm, Optoma's HZ40UST projector has an eye on media rooms and living spaces where cable runs and ceiling installations are a no-go.
The ultra-short throw HZ40UST may use regular Full HD DLP optics, but it combines these with a laser light source to deliver a claimed 20,000-hour lamp life and 4,000 Lumens brightness suitable for daytime viewing – Optoma suggests its own ALR100 (Ambient Light Reflecting) screen as a partnering canvas.
Designed to be the hub of a fuss-free system, the projector packs dual HDMI inputs, dual VGA inputs, composite AV port and a powered USB port for charging a streaming dongle. Ethernet, RS-232 and 12V trigger connections support automated systems.
The unit can feed a separate audio setup via its 3.5mm out, but also offers an onboard 10W speaker. 3D playback is also supported, and Optoma syas the PJ features a 'low latency', so that gamers will enjoy quick response times.
The Optoma HZ40UST is available now, priced at around £2,500.
