Optoma Launches a Pair of 3D Projectors  Print E-mail

Optoma's new projectors are aimed directly at the custom install crowd.  The HD8300 and HD3300 are projectors at two fairly distant price points, but they have quite a bit in common. Both utilize HDMI 1.4 and are compatible with the gamut of mandatory 3D formats and you can even set other modes manually in case you need them.  Both offer an RS-232 port, +12V triggers and a VESA 3D port.  The new projectors use the company's RF technology and glasses instead of infrared.

The projectors start to separate themselves when it comes to the technology packed inside.  While the 3300 offers PureMotion3D and PureDepth, the 8300 steps it up and adds PureColor and PureMotion4D processing.  That's one more D, so it's gotta be good! Optoma's HD3300 comes in at a nice low price of $1,999.  The 8300, with its 30,000:1 contrast ratio and 1500 lumens brightness, has an MSRP of $4,499.  Both will be available later this month.
