VAVA asserts that its latest high-end 4K UHD laser projector can support a home-theater experience without the need for heavy curtains at any time of day. This is due to its 2,500-lumen brightness, not to mention the latest generation of clarity-enhancing ALPD technology. The Chroma has just debuted on Indiegogo, yet has already gone beyond its funding goal.

RAVPOWER's home and home-office-focused sub-brand VAVA has unveiled its latest laser projector on a crowdfunding website. The Chroma is of the type that reproduces its image via separate lasers for 'red', 'green' and 'blue' for enhanced color accuacy and quality. Its Texas Instruments platform, enhanced with that company's XPR technology, has been chosen for its ability to retain detail at high resolutions.

VAVA asserts that the new device supports 106% of the Rec.2020 color gamut, HDR10+ and a high 3000:1 contrast ratio as a result. These specs are applied to windows of 80 to 150 inches in diagonal length of up to 4K in resolution. The brand also claims that the Chroma needs to be placed only 7.2 inches away from a target for such a picture of 100 inches in size. 

The projector is also associated with the ALPD 4.0 laser-throw standard, the next generation of that used in the world's finest cinemas (according to VAVA at least). Its bulb is rated for a 2,500 ANSI lumen brightness and is rated for a 25,000-hour lifetime.

These internals are packaged in a chassis that also comes with its own 60W Harman Kardon-tuned speakers, which runs the Android TV OS for smart-home purposes and also supports Amazon Alexa. Despite all this, VAVA still suggests that using the Chroma with an ambient light-rejecting (ALR) backdrop rather than a bare wall is still a good idea.

Therefore, it is bundling its own 120-inch Pro screen of this kind (at a normal price of US$649, of course) with every new projector ordered as an Indiegogo reward during its first day on this platform. This promo, which runs over the next ~20 hours from now, applies to VAVA Chroma units that currently start at US$2,799 on its new platform.
