Optoma Introduces Its Definitive 1080p Home Theater Solution Print E-mail
Thursday, 05 July 2007
Optoma, one of the leading manufacturers of digital projection and display devices, announced the shipping of the HD81-LV 1080p home theater projector. The latest native 1080p home theater projector in Optoma’s award-winning projector line, the HD81-LV is the latest incarnation of the company’s unique two-piece projection system that includes a native 1080p projector and studio-grade video processor. The Optoma HD81-LV’s brightness opens up new home theater environments. With its extensive connectivity options, personalized setting adjustments and a DarkChip3 chipset from Texas Instruments, the HD81-LV is able to deliver rich and deep textures with astonishing image quality. The HD81-LV sports 2500 lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio (with ImageAI-II™) which makes it a unique system in non-light controlled environments.

And, like the HD81, Optoma’s award-winning 1080p projection system, the HD81-LV and its two-piece design eliminates the need for multiple cables going from video sources to the projector.

Together with the optional BX-AL133 Anamorphic Lens/Sled Kit from Optoma, the HD81-LV can create a true widescreen cinematic experience. When the anamorphic lens is installed together with the HD81-LV, it creates a fully automated 2.35:1 widescreen image, without the loss of color clarity, brightness or resolution.

Features
• Native 1080p (1920x1080) resolution
• 1080p DarkChip3 DLP chipset by Texas Instruments
• Video processor supports up-scaling to 1080p with de-interlacing
• The Auto-IRIS and Auto235 functions automatically detect the aspect ratio, then formats the image for the anamorphic lens

The Optoma HD81-LV home theater projection system will be available in July 2007 for an estimated street price of $7,999 through authorized Optoma dealers and retailers.
