Optoma Delivers 720p Home Theater Projection
With a host of inputs, you can hook almost any video source to this 720p projector for some DLP goodness.
January 24, 2007 by Rachel Cericola

Optoma has wrapped DLP projection into a nice, nifty, iPod-y looking package—and the price tag isn’t too frightening either.

The Optoma HD73 features a DarkChip3 DLP DMD chipset from Texas Instruments and a 6000:1 contrast ratio with Optoma’s proprietary ImageAI technology. Together with the latest color processing technologies, such as Texas Instruments’ BrilliantColor, Optoma’s proprietary TrueVivid and Faroudja’s DCDi image optimization, the HD73 boasts higher brightness and vibrant colors.

In addition to the packed color processing technologies, the HD73 also supports dual digital inputs for multiple digital high-definition source connections. With 1300 lumens and a native 16:10 aspect ratio, and support for 4:3 and 16:9, the Optoma HD73 offers digital horizontal and vertical keystone correction, and is whisper-quiet at 27dB.
