For those in the market for native 1080p projectors, Optoma has announced the shipping of its two-piece HD81-LV 1080p home theater projector with studio-grade video processor.
The Optoma HD81-LV features extensive connectivity options, personalized setting adjustments and a DarkChip3 DLP chipset from Texas Instruments to deliver rich and deep textures, the company says. The HD81-LV boasts 2,500 lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio (with ImageAI-II) that aids its aptitude in non-light controlled environments.
Combined with the optional BX-AL133 Anamorphic Lens/Sled Kit from Optoma, the HD81-LV can create a true widescreen cinematic experience by delivering a fully automated 2.35:1 image, without the loss of color clarity, brightness or resolution, Optoma says.
The projector is available in July for $7,999 from authorized dealers and retailers.
