Optoma has launched a brand new projector, the HD27. It provides 1080p resolution and is aimed at the home theatre market.

The HD27 comes with new colour modes that help the projector reproduce the colours as they were created. For home theatres this is crucial in producing a top quality clear image. Along with this it comes with sRGB and rec.709 colours which allows the projector to reproduce colours ranging from a number of connections including Mac, PC and HDTV. Further to this, lamp life in the projector can deliver up to 8,000 viewing hours and the lens that comes with the projector allows for vivid and sharp images.

In terms of brightness, the projector comes with a 3,200 lumens of brightness. This allows the projector to be used in rooms with even moderate ambient lighting and means it can be used on pretty much any large screen or wall. Along with its contrast ration of 25,000:1, the projector can produce bright white as well as detailed, crisp black images.

In terms of connectivity with other devices, the projector comes with wireless compatibility. This allows it to connect to devices such as Chromecast, and the Amazon Fire as well as using other devices such as Roku and Optoma’s own HDCast Pro.

Speaking on the releasing of the projector, Brian Soto, head of product management at Optoma Technology, said: “On the heels of announcing the improved HD142X, the top selling 1080p model on the market, we're excited that we can bring more upgrades to yet another top-selling high-definition home theatre projector with the HD27.

"As more and more millennials are replacing TVs for the flexibility and large image size of projectors, Optoma is delivering two new projectors that provide some of the best images out there, for a fraction of the price of HDTVs."
