The Optoma UHD65 and its little brother, the UHD60, are two home theater projectors that boast 4KUHD resolution. They are able to get that 8.3 million megapixels by the grace of the new Texas Instruments DLP chip, with its 2716 x 1528 x2 resolution. These guys are pixel shifters, but they’ve got 50% more pixels than the best-of-the-best 1080p pixel shifters.
Art felt the projectors were missing some key features, but liked the Optoma UHD65 all the same. In this video, Art Feierman covers the basics of the Optoma UHD65 (and UHD60, as they are essentially the same), providing his insights along the way. Both Optomas took home an award in this year’s Best Home Theater Projectors Report, with the UHD65 taking the Best in Class: Value Award in the $2000-$3500 Class.
The Optoma UHD65 video features photos of the projector in action, as well as video clips from “Ultimate Wave Tahiti” by Stephen Low Productions. The photos from The Hunger Games look sharp, and the video clips give a little taste of what the projector can do – it’s visibly sharper than the 1080p pixel shifters we’ve reviewed.
