Optoma released their top-of-the-line HD8300 Full HD 1080p 3D home theater DLP projector for the custom installation market, replacing the HD8200 projector.
The HD8300 delivers a robust 1500 lumens and employs the Optoma's latest generation frame-interpolation processing, PureMotion4D, which allows the user to easily customize the level of processing to suit the content. At its lowest setting, PureMotion4D maximizes the detail of every frame while still retaining the “dream-like” quality of film. At its highest setting, it virtually eliminates motion blur, making it ideal for fast-paced sports and non-stop action films.
The HD8300 also incorporates Optoma's proprietary PureColor technology and a new color management system to optimize and fine tune primary and secondary colors for calibration precision. PureColor provides unprecedented controlover the image and makes it possible to achieve vivid, balanced, and uniform color for vibrant and natural looking 2D and 3D images that remain smooth and judder-free for greater realism.
For increased placement flexibility, the HD8300 offers PureShift lens shift and a wide 1.5x zoom ratio. And, ISFccc (Imaging Science Foundation Custom Calibration Configuration) controls, with day and night modes, are available for adjustment by certified installers.
The HD8300 has been developed to take advantage of the company's new 3D-RF glasses, which use RF (radio frequency) technology and have been specifically designed to maximize brightness and contrast while eliminating the line of sight and synchronization issues commonly experienced with systems using infra-red (IR) emitters. The new glasses are fully rechargeable; the RF emitter is included with the projector, while the 3D glasses will be sold separately.
The HD8300 supports all the HDMI 1.4a mandatory 3D formats, including both Side-by-Side and Top & Bottom formats, and more. To further enhance 3D compatibility, Side-by-Side and Top & Bottom formats can be manually enabled to allow other non-HDMI 1.4a compatible devices, such as older set top boxes, Xbox360, or PCs, to display 3D via the VGA or HDMI ports. Accordingly, the HD8300 offers two HDMI 1.4a ports, one VGA port, as well as connections for component video, composite video, RS-232, two +12V triggers, and a VESA 3D port.
The HD8300 ships standard with a back-up remote in case the primary remote is lost or damaged. The backup remote is magnetically held onto the unit for emergency usage.
