Projector and gaming does not quite go hand-in-hand, but projector maker and owner of audio equipment maker NuForce, Optoma, begs to differ. Optoma has recently revealed two new true 4K projectors, namely, UHD35 and UHD38, which it is marketing as “gaming and home entertainment projectors.”

While I am not a fan of projector as TV, the idea of playing UHD resolution video game with up to 300 inches “screen” is very enticing.

With the new Optoma UHD35 and UHD38 4K Gaming and Home Theater Projectors, it promised latest TI DLP technology with 3,600 and 4,000 ANSI lumens of brightness, respectively.

It also promised “outstanding response times” and 8.3 million on-screen pixels for incredible immersion – that’s 4 million more pixels than most 4K Pro UHD projectors in the market. The projectors are Consumer Technology Association (CTA) certified True 4K UHD.

In Enhanced Gaming Mode, the projects will delivery an ultra-low input lag of 4.2 ms. There’s a catch. That number is at 1080p 240 Hz. At 4K UHD, the response rate is 16.7 ms.

Other notables include HDR10 and HLG compatibility, horizontal and vertical keystone and 4-corner correction, dual HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 support, 12V trigger enables control of motorized screens, built-in 10W speaker, Blu-ray 3D support, and up to 15,000-hour lamp life.

Enticing specs, no doubt, but such goodness also comes with a steep price tag. The Optoma UHD35 sells for US$1,299 while the UHD38 goes for US$1,399.
