Projector maker Optoma today announced a new high definition projector which makes full 1080p resolution more affordable than any of their previous models.
Optoma’s new HD80 projector will retail for just $2999 when it’s released this July, but will pack in video quality usually reserved for much more expensive projectors. Powered by TI’s DarkChip2 and Brilliant Color chip set, the front projector pumps out super sharp 1920 x 1080 resolution images.
In addition to the 1080p rez, the HD80 will feature 1300 lumens of brightness and claims a stellar 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Image processing is courtesy of a 10-bit motion adaptive de-interlacer and PixelWorks video processing circuitry.
The projector also includes a wide variety of inputs, including dual HDMI (v1.3), DVI w/HDCP, S-Video, Component, Composite, RS-232, 12V Trigger and a remote IR receiver port.
