London, April 2010 - Optoma is proud to announce the HD67: an HD ready projector that brings the amazing cinematic performance of the latest digital projector technology to the home. Building on the success of the bestselling HD65 the new HD67 now includes limited 3D capabilities.*
Optoma has produced a projector that combines a stunningly bright 1800 ANSI Lumens of Home Cinema experience with perfectly balanced colour rendition and incredibly light and shade detail only possible with an exceptional 400:1 ANSI Contrast ratio.
Keen to deliver a reliable, measurable indicator of real-world contrast performance between different projector technologies, Optoma is committed to systematically publishing its ANSI Contrast performance. Now, a major home cinema projector manufacturer is prepared to publish an internationally recognised and independently reproducible ANSI contrast performance figure.
Contrast ratio specifications are typically measured using a “Full On, Full Off” technique. This involves measuring the projector performance when displaying a pure black screen and then a pure white screen. Many believe that “Full On, Full Off” contrast measurements may not depict “real world” performance and may not offer the relevant information needed to determine how a projector will look when watching movies at home. ANSI Contrast is measured when the projector is simultaneously displaying both black and white – many believe that this provides a much better “real world” performance indication.
Since most movies are shot at 24 frames per second (FPS), the HD67 preserves the purity of the original image by accepting HD sources at 24 FPS preserving the image as the director intended.
Featuring a full range of analogue and digital inputs, including HDMI v1.3, connectivity to the latest digital entertainment devices such as BluRay ™ players and gaming consoles is simple and straightforward. Not only is the HD67 perfect for big screen cinema experiences but is also bright enough to be used in ambient light conditions for fully immersive gaming.
Indeed, so confident is Optoma of its picture quality that its unique guarantee warrants image and colour quality will remain as new for at least five years.
