Innovative projector manufacturer, Optoma, has launched a brand new high-definition projector for use in home cinemas that is able to play video at speeds of 24 frames per second.

The new HD23 projector is a replacement for the brand’s successful HD20 model, and offers Full HD (1920x1080p) resolution. Optoma Europe’s head of product management, Justin Halls, said that the capabilities of the projector will allow viewers to watch content in the optimum quality.

“Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second,” he said. “To preserve the purity of the original image the HD23 can accept high definition sources at 24 frames per second and so display source material just as intended.”

The projector can produce images as large as 5 metres diagonally, from projection distances of between1.5 metres and 12.5 metres. It has a brightness rating of 2,500 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio of 5,000:1, which mean that the projector can create high-quality images even in settings with moderate ambient light.

Optoma has claimed that the projector creates whisper-quiet noise levels when in operation. It has HDMI inputs for connecting a range of source consoles and uses less than one Watt of power when on standby.
