Optoma, last year announced it was to be the first to market entry with both TI XPR Technology based 4K projector the DLP with pixel shifting technology developed by Texas Instrument, and Philips HLD LED solid state lightsource. This was demonstrated last year at CES and subsequently at ISE 2016 in Amsterdam. However the Q3 became Q4 and even now the machine has yet to appear. At CES instead there now is an Ultra Shorth Throw projector the Optoma 4K UST with laser-phosphor light source first announced at Infocomm this summer, but at double the highest price indicated for the HLD, high-lumen-density LED, projector. It lists at $20K versus the 7-10K€/$ for the LED with conversion rods projector.

And there is a much cheaper lamp based XPR 4K DLP projector, the UHD60. The Optoma UHD60 will still be the first affordable 4K DLP projector to market, scheduled for availability in the second quarter. At a much lower price as every developer seems to have hit delays. The Optoma UHD60 projector delivers true 4K UHD for the ultimate in image quality. This 3,840 x 2,160 resolution home cinema projector with vertical lens shift will be available for just $2,799 in Q2 2017. A quarter ahead of the Vivitek by that other large projectro ODM Delta Electronics, and priced $200 less.

Remarkably there was also a lamp-based version at ISE that Optoma representatives expected could fetch more than the HLD projector, as it had a higher lumens spec. Though the 3500 lumens on paper did not make any practical difference, crazy numbers upt 13K Euro were uttered, at the ISE show, last February. Of course this UHD 60 will undoubtedly offer a smaller lamp, with less output, it is more realistic in what consumers are willing to pay for this type of projector.

As the consumer and business customer facing brand of the Largest DLP projector OEM and ODM manufacturer Coretronic, Optoma, is unveiling a stellar lineup of new and innovative home theater projectors at CES to deliver unprecedented home cinema experiences. By offering high quality products at market-leading prices, Optoma's 2017 product lineup will drive the industry forward and make projectors more accessible and mainstream.

The company is also introducing an ultra-compact pico projector with LED illumination, an Android operating system and app store that makes connecting and viewing content easier than ever.

With the Optoma 4K UST 4K being a version of the Coretronic U50K Platform.
CES 2017: Optoma launches UHD60, the least expensive 4K DLP projector and more it is most likely we will see the Optoma HLD LED 4K resurface, as Optoma parent Coretronic has started offering it as the D100 Platform. Like the BenQ with considerably scaled back light output specification from 3000 lumens to a 'mere' 2400 peak white, that is 100 lumens below the 2500 lumens Philips quoted and demonstrated for its technology with its reference design.
