Optoma announced the launch of HD27SA, successor to the world’s first home cinema projector featuring DarbeeVision on 9th August. A compact and light-weighted projector featuring new DARBEE Visual Presence™ image enhancement technology offers 1080p Full HD resolution. While it does not offer support for 4K UHD resolution, it does cover the Rec.709 and sRGB color modes. The company has not revealed any information about the price and availability of the product yet.
New DARBEE Visual Presence
Integrated with new DARBEE Visual Presence™ image enhancement technology, it delivers unprecedented level of detail in skin tones, textures, and reflective surfaces while ensuring superior depth, object separation, as well as automatic removal of unsightly artifacts, making the images clearer and more realistic. Just amazing, I think.
Rec.709 colors are exceeded by almost 100%. Rich vibrant colors in Blu-ray movies, HDTV programming, home videos, and photos without sacrificing any brightness.
High performance and low maintenance
With 8,000 hours of lamp life in dynamic Eco+ mode, the HD27SA requires low maintenance, for hours of gaming and viewing entertainment, Optoma claims. That is pretty decent and most users need not worry about maintenance at all. This projector also provides life like experiences to the consumers.
Integrated 10W speakers
We’re getting a powerful built-in speaker as well. With no external speakers involved, setup should be easy too. So, complete your entertainment experience with this convenience.
- Eco mode relevant for whisper quiet operation – 29dB.
- USB power to stream content from Optoma HDCast Pro, Google Chromecast, TV dongles to play back music and video, view pictures.
- MHL that turns your projector into a smart display by connecting a tablet or smartphone. So, you can share webpages and other user generated digital media content eaisly.
Gordon Wu, Assistant Vice President at Optoma APAC, commented on the launch saying: “Optoma HD27SA achieves a fine balance between price and quality. With new DARBEE Visual Presence™ and Amazing Color technology, HD27SA provides a great visual enhancement in the bargain for those who have limited budget but care about image clarity and realism. The compact and light-weighted design, versatile integrations also fulfills the need for those who have small to medium-sized home entertainment space.”
