Optoma DLP Projectors

Optoma at CES launched a major enhancement to its DLP projector line by releasing three new models targeted alternately at its high- and low-end home theater audience as well as business-conscious users. Topping the releases is the HD81-LV, a refresh of the 1080p-capable flagship HD81 that almost doubles the brightness of its predecessor, jumping from 1,300 to 2,500 lumens of brightness. An optional replacement lens, the BX-AL133 Cinemascope ($3,999), has also been revealed which adds a true movie theater widescreen ratio to both the LV and its original version. The price of the upgraded HD81 has yet to be released, though it will ship soon.

Another updated model is the MovieTime DV11 ($999), a sequel to the DV10 projector and DVD player hybrid that displays at 800x600 with a much brighter 1,300-lumen design. Optoma lastly improved its business range with the TX773 ($2,499), a mid-range business DLP with a 1024x768 display, 3,500 lumens brightness, and input for DVI and VGA signals from computers. These more standardized projectors are also expected soon.
