The Optoma P1 can project a 120” image from just inches away to achieve that size, and can sit on a low table or credenza. The projector fully supports HDR10 and HLG (hybrid log gamma) for streaming 4K. It even features a built-in soundbar by NuForce, which features Dolby Digital 2.0. For those of you who want to use your own external sound system, there is an Audio Out to do so – we do recommend that for serious movie watching.

The built in NuForce soundbar is isolated from the light engine so vibrations don't affect the image. Freq. Range: 90hz - 20,000hz
