Optoma has unveiled the GT2160HDR 4K UHD short throw gaming projector. The gadget can throw images up to 300-in (~762 cm) wide with various aspect ratios, including 32:9 super-ultra-wide. Other gaming features include a 240 Hz refresh rate at 1080p with a 4 ms input lag and HDMI 2.0 ports.

Optoma has launched the GT2160HDR, a 4K UHD short-throw gaming projector. Thanks to a 0.496 throw ratio, the gadget can produce a 100-in (~254 cm) wide image at a distance of 1.1 m (~3.6 ft) from the screen. With support for HDR and HLG, the device can throw pictures from 100-in to 300-in (~254 to 762 cm) across, in aspect ratios such as 21:9 ultra-wide and 32:9 super-ultra-wide. The device has a maximum brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, with a lamp expected to last up to 15,000 hours. 

With Enhanced Game Mode, you can game with a 240 Hz refresh rate at 1080p resolution with a 4 ms input lag. Alternatively, you can play at 4K with a 60 Hz refresh rate and a 17 ms lag time. Other features of the GT2160HDR are two HDMI 2.0 ports, a 1,200,000:1 contrast ratio and Rec. 709 color reproduction. The device has multiple modes like cinema mode or gaming mode, plus the projector is 3D capable. A 10 W speaker is built into the projector, which can produce fan noise of 27 dB in eco mode.

The product measures 315 x 270 x118 mm (~12.4 x 10.6 x 4.6-in) and weighs 5 kg (~11 lbs). You can currently pre-order the Optoma GT2160HDR 4K UHD projector in Australia for AU$2,999 (~US$1,947); customers can expect to receive the product in mid-November. The device has also launched in Korea for KRW 1,990,000 (~US$1,399), with a gift for initial customers of a Denon Soundbar and Homatics BoxQ, the Android TV set-top box.
