Optoma’s New HD808 Home Theater Projector Pushes the Envelope in High-End Performance

Delivering next-generation video processing performance and smooth playback to redefine the home theater viewing experience, Optoma, the award-winning manufacturer of digital projection and display devices, has introduced the all-new HD808 Home Theater Projector, the company’s most advanced front projector for consumers looking for the latest in home theater and HDTV viewing applications. Powered by Texas Instruments’ DLP 0.65″ DMD Technology, and incorporating Optoma’s exclusive PureShift™ and PureMotion™ technologies, the HD808 delivers advanced image processing for film-like performance in full 1080p resolution. The suggested retail price for the HD808 is $3,499.

“Optoma continues to lead the projector market by offering next-generation video processing performance and smooth playback in our new projector that will redefine the home theater viewing experience,” said Jon Grodem, Optoma’s director of product and marketing. “Consumers for a projector that’s technology-packed and easy to install will find the 808 a tremendous projector.”

Engineered for the most demanding home theater enthusiasts and for the professionals who install it, the HD808 combines other state-of-the-art technologies and features within a sleek, elegant design. Incorporating Texas Instruments’ latest, smaller version of its DLP DarkChip3 DMD chipset, the HD808 offers an improved 15,000:1 DynamicBlack™ contrast ratio to ensure true-to-life color accuracy. The HD808 is also the first DLP-based projector to employ Pixelworks’ PW9800 co-processor with DNX MotionEngine™ technology. Using proprietary MEMC (Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation) algorithms to significantly enhance the quality of the video delivered, the PW9800 compensates for motion artifacts, often referred to as “judder,” in high-resolution digital video content thus ensuring smooth playback. Combined with Optoma’s PureMotion Technology for advanced image processing, and delivering a maximum brightness of 1,200 ANSI lumens, the HD808 is sure to bring out the best quality in both film and video source materials.

The HD808 also incorporates a host of features to help simplify the installation process. The projector’s center lens placement, coupled with Optoma’s PureShift technology, gives provides greater installation options by allowing the image to be shifted vertically and horizontally, while keeping the entire image in the optical sweet spot, thus improving uniformity for the entire image. Lastly, the projector incorporates more efficient cooling technologies keeping the unit cool and whisper quiet during operation.

A perfect fit for any home entertainment environment, the HD808 offers easy connectivity to most devices, including high definition DVD players, gaming systems, satellite, personal computers and cable, with two HDMI v1.3 with Deep Color inputs and DVI w/HDCP, S-Video, component video RS-232, and +12V trigger and IR receiver.
