Named the HD28DSE, this home entertainment projector boasts 3,000 lumens, utilising DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology’s neuro-biologic algorithms to enhance detail and depth in skin tones, textures and reflective surfaces.
According to Optoma, the end result is that video games, Blu-ray movies and HDTV programming can be viewed in ‘amazing image clarity’.
The HD28DSE is a high definition 1080p DLP projector with a 30,000:1 contrast ratio and weighs 2.58kg. Simple to plug-and-play, it is most suited for watching TV and movies and gaming, either installed in the home or for temporary set-ups – such as for outdoor movies in the garden.
The HD28DSE is 3D ready; 3D content can be displayed from almost any 3D source including 3D Blu-ray players, 3D broadcasting and the latest generation gaming consoles.
Two HDMI inputs allow the HD28DSE to easily connect to laptops, Blu-ray DVD players, gaming consoles and digital set top boxes.
MHL connectivity makes it easy to share content from devices such as the Optoma HDCast Pro, Roku’s streaming stick, tablets and smartphones, which can be connected directly to the projector to playback music and video, view pictures and even share webpages and other user generated digital media content.
“Through extensive collaboration, we are pleased to have our proprietary DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology incorporated into Optoma’s premium home cinema projector – HD28DSE,” says Larry Pace, president, of DARBEEVision Inc.
“DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology is important because it can correct the flatness and loss of realism of every image ever taken. DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology uses computation to process images in the same way the brain does, resulting in revolutionary and never-before-seen levels of depth, clarity, object separation, and realism for an immersive and lifelike viewing experience.”
Larry says that: “we chose Optoma as our exclusive projector partner because we recognise that Optoma’s goal of advancing excellent image quality aligns perfectly with DARBEEVision’s mission. With Optoma’s expertise in integrating ground-breaking image enhancement features into projectors, and its reach in the HD market, we are excited that DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology will be seen and appreciated by even more people worldwide.”
“HD28DSE is a step-up from our base home entertainment range with more powerful image performance, brilliant colours and vivid visual presentation,” explains Optoma’s head of product marketing, Justin Halls.
“With native support for MHL, it adds more connectivity options for consumers who now have media content everywhere: in the cloud, from the gaming console, or from PC and tablet.”
The HD28DSE includes a powered USB output – ideal for powering devices such as Google’s Chromecast and Amazon’s FireTV media dongles, or other media devices that require USB power or AC power.
The HD28DSE has a lamp life of up to 8,000 hours when the lamp mode is set to dynamic. This means if used to watch a typical film every day, the lamp would theoretically last for over 10 years.
An audio output is also included in addition to a built-in 10W speaker, enabling connection to external sound systems, although Optoma’s NuForce AVP18 processor can also be connected.
