Optoma has introduced the UHD50X, a new projector capable of throwing content at a resolution of 3840 x 2160. Its images can go up to 302 inches, and have a contrast ratio of 500,000:1. The OEM also claims that it is capable of a 240Hz refresh rate. However, this only applies while the device is in FHD mode.

Otherwise, its rate goes down to a more standard 60Hz. The projector's input lag can also go as low as 16ms while working in 1080p; however, this increases to 25ms at 4K UHD. These specs are part of the UHD50X's "Enhanced Gaming Mode", which applies when the projector is connected to a PC.

The new projector also supports HDMI 2.0, as well as HDCP 2.2. It has also been designed for high brightness, with a lamp rated for up to 15,000 hours of usable life. The Optoma UHD50X is priced at approximately US$1599 and is available from certain dealers.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
