Optoma ThemeScene HD83
New model joins the ThemeScene range, is the first model in that line-up with full 1080P 3D capability, will sell for £2400

Just a week after launching its HD33 3D projector, Optoma rolls out the ThemeScene HD83, a £2400 model said to be 'taking 3D home cinema quality to yet higher levels'.

The HD83 claims best in class colour saturation, along with 1600 ANSI Lumen brightness and 50,000:1 peak contrast/700:1 ANSI contrast, and carries a guarantee that image and colour quality will remain as new for at least five years.

The latest generation of Optoma's frame-interpolation processing – PureMotion4 – is used, while advanced lamp-pulsing technology allows every frame to be analysed and the lamp adjusted accordingly for the best colour and optimal lamp use with minmal power consumption.

More after the break

The colour-management system allows advanced users to choose between five preset colour gamuts – HDTV (Rec 709), EBU, DLP Cinema, SMPTE-C and Native – while it's also possible to fine-tune the intensity and X/Y coordinates of primary and secondary colours manually.

The projector, which has a full range of analogue and digital video inputs including two HDMIs, has been designed to slot into existing installations as an upgrade.

It works with Optoma's new 3D-RF glasses, which connect using Wi-Fi technology to avoid interference and synchronisation drop-outs – two pairs of the glasses are provided with the projector.

Also provide are both a full-function remote control handset and a simpler credit-card-sized mini-remote (left).
