Optoma announces the first native 1080P projector at under €uro1000.
Watford, June 2009 – Optoma is proud to introduce the HD20: a Full HD projector that brings stunning cinematic performance of the best digital projector technology to an astonishing new price point.
Optoma has produced a projector that combines a stunningly bright 1700 ANSI Lumens of Home Cinema experience with perfectly balanced colour rendition and incredibly light and shade detail only possible with an exceptional 500:1 ANSI Contrast ratio.
Keen to deliver a reliable, measurable indicator of real-world contrast performance between different projector technologies, Optoma is committed to systematically publishing its ANSI Contrast performance. Now, for the first time, a major home cinema projector manufacturer is prepared to publish an internationally recognised and independently reproducible ANSI contrast performance figure.
Contrast ratio specifications are typically measured using a “Full On, Full Off” technique. This involves measuring the projector performance when displaying a pure black screen and then a pure white screen. Many believe that “Full On, Full Off” contrast measurements may not depict “real world” performance and may not offer the relevant information needed to determine how a projector will look when watching movies at home. ANSI Contrast is measured when the projector is simultaneously displaying both black and white – many believe that this provides a much better “real world” performance indication.
Featuring a full range of analogue and digital inputs, including 2 x HDMI v1.3, connectivity to the latest digital entertainment devices such as BluRay ™ players and gaming consoles is simple and straightforward. Not only is the HD20 perfect for big screen cinema experiences but is also bright enough to be used in ambient light conditions for fully immersive gaming.
Indeed, so confident is Optoma of its picture quality that its unique guarantee warrants image and colour quality will remain as new for at least five years.
In these difficult times, Optoma is fully committed to lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO). Our projectors now not only incorporate features such as “environmentally friendly” fast shut down and start-up, but our “filter-free design” ensures that there are no “hidden” costs to owning a projector. No filters to clean or replace ensures our projectors have lower life-time costs
saving both time and money.

Jeg synes projektoren ser spennende ut, spesielt når man tar prisen i betraktning. Det jeg ikke liker, som også gjelder for HD86, er at Optoma nå har begynt å oppgi ANSI-kontrast i stedet for On/Off, og forkynner hvor mye mer førstnevnte betyr for bildekvaliteten. Det de i virkeligheten gjør, er å fremheve en av de få fordelene DLP har over konkurrentene, og prøver å overbevise potensielle kjøpere om at ANSI-kontrast er det viktigste.
Dessverre er det ikke så enkelt, og spør du meg hadde det vært mye bedre at produsentene ble enige om en ny standard, eksempelvis "intrascene contrast", som da ville vist at både ANSI-kontrast og On/Off kontrast er viktig. Hver på sitt område.....

Helt enig. Selv om ANSI-kontrast er et interessant begrep, bør de også legge ved on/off slik at en kan vurdere begge. Blir litt sånn; siden de "andre" er kjipe skal vi være minst like så... Problemet er imidlertid, som Optoma poengterer på et godt vis, at on/off med en irisbasert løsning langt fra gir det hele og fulle bildet, men i stedet for å fjerne on/off burde de jo operert med begge begreper - samt selvsagt å understreke at ANSI-kontrast at viktig i selve marketingteksten - og GJERNE oppfordring til de øvrige om å oppgi det samme...
