Optoma HD82
Proving there's more to the company than tiny, handheld projectors, Optoma has launched the £3000 HD82

Recent news from projector-manufacturer Optoma has focused on the release of the world's smallest projector, the Pico, which we reported on here back in October.

But Optoma still has more than half an eye on the other end of the market, the proof being the release of the HD82, 1920 x 1080, full HD resolution DLP projector.

Optoma seems to have packed in plenty of proprietary technology, with Pure Engine at its heart, alongside Pure Optics, PureMotion and PureShift (we're noticing a theme here).

There's a claimed 20,000:1 contrast ratio, plus 1300 lumens brightness, while noise level is measured at a respectably quiet 22db and the throw ratio is 1.50 - 2.28.

More after the break

The Optoma HD82 is on sale now for around £3000.
