“We looked at comparable projectors that were priced at double and triple the price range, and found the best value for money projector we could get for the image quality was the Optoma UHD60.”
Michelle McGill from Sound Xperience
“It looks absolutely amazing! The 4K picture quality on the Black Diamond Screen is incredible. With its white chassis and being more compact than other 4K projectors on the market, it blends well into this living room. The customer is over the moon with his new home cinema.”

Sound Xperience installs style and substance

Challenge
A film fan from Johannesburg, South Africa, wanted to create a big cinema experience in his home.  He wanted 4K picture quality at a decent price with a large screen and tasked AV experts, Sound Xperience, the challenge of creating this experience.

Set in a bright living room, it was important to have a high brightness level to counteract the white walls.  It was also imperative to him that the equipment blended in and looked stylish.  

Solution
Sound Xperience installed an Optoma UHD60 UHD 4K DLP projector with Optoma's universal ceiling mount together with Screen Innovations’ Black Diamond 120” screen.

Michelle McGill from Sound Xperience said: “We looked at comparable projectors that were priced at double and triple the price range, and found the best value for money projector we could get for the image quality was the Optoma UHD60.” 

Packed with the latest technology and features, the UHD60 boasts High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatibility and HDCP 2.2 support.

Unlike others which use just 1080p pixel chips, the UHD60 uses Texas Instruments’ XPR™ technology to deliver 8M pixels from a 4M pixel chip. The inherent fast switching speed of the DLP chip and advanced image processing allows the projector to display the full 8.3M pixels to the screen.  This guarantees razor sharp, vivid images capable of showing more details than standard Full HD – to give that cinema experience in the home.

The team installed the Black Diamond screen from Screen Innovations which contains nine layers of optical filters which reject 85% of ambient light in the room. It produces significantly better contrast by rejecting light from above, below, and both sides. 

To retain the elegance of the room, the team used in-ceiling Jamo sound home theatre speakers paired with a Denon amplifier for a clean, open look without compromising on audio quality. 

The installation was made complete with a Control4 lighting automation system.  This controls over 30 lighting zones, making this a smart, beautiful home.
