The image processing is adjustable, giving you the flexibility to customise the visual enhancement to suit your particular taste.

Dynamic black technology

Dynamic black gives more depth to your image by smoothly adjusting the lamp output, based on the brightness information of each frame; to create a stunning high contrast ratio. Bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.


Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps). To preserve the purity of the original image, Optoma projectors can accept high definition sources at 24 fps to display movies exactly as the director intended.

Amazing Colour

Watch your movies, TV shows and play games with stunning colours in any environment. Optoma projectors provides you with reliable performance suitable for any content and environment. Our home projectors are capable of reproducing the Rec.709 colour gamut, the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic colour exactly as the director intended. Or more saturated colours for a punchy looking image, great for gaming and animated movies.

Long lamp life

The expected lifetime of a typical Optoma projector lamp is an impressive 8000 hours; so if you watch a two hour movie every day, the lamp should last for almost 11 years.

We are so confident that the image colour quality will remain as good as the day you bought it that Optoma will guarantee it for five years.

1Lamp based projectors brightness and lifetime will vary depending on selected projector mode, environmental conditions and usage. As is common with all lamp based projectors, brightness will decrease over the lamp lifetime. LED projectors do not have a replaceable lamp and the brightness does not decay significantly over the product lifetime.
