A new step-up DLP model.
After a few quiet trade shows, Optoma has re-emerged with two new 1080p DLP projectors and a new strategy, to target specific products at specific channels. The custom-oriented line, distributed exclusively through AVAD, features three projectors, including the new entry-level HD2200 and the new top-shelf HD8600. (In the middle is the HD8200 that flew under the radar at CES.)
The higher-end HD8600 uses a single 0.65-inch DarkChip3 from Texas Instruments and includes Optoma’s most advanced features and image-calibration options. You get ISF modes, full color management, an extended color gamut, a double iris system, three lens options, and an anamorphic mode that works with the optional Panamorph lens system.
The HD8600 also has a newly updated PureMotion2 motion compensation mode to reduce film judder, as well as more advanced lens-shifting functions for easier setup. The connection panel includes three HDMI inputs, plus RS-232 and 12-volt triggers.
The HD8600 will be available this month.
