Large OEM and ODM (DLP) Projector maker Delta electronics of Taiwan will Showcase the New Vivitek 4K Ultra HD Projector at CES 2017. The HK2288 4K Ultra HD is Vivitek's inaugural product for its new 4K Home Cinema Projector Product Series, which is expected to grow and expand throughout 2017. Available in black or white, the powerful HK2288 is engineered with an energy efficient lamp that lasts up to 4,000 hours (Dynamic Eco Mode). Through vivid color, rich blacks and crisp resolution, friends and family will be instantly captivated by what's showing on your home theater.

CES 2017: Vivitek launches HK2288 its first 4K DLP projector

Vivitek has been turned into Delta's vehicle of first launch for new projector technologies, from its channel for older projectors that ODM clients had seen replaced with a new model. This started all the way back at IFA 2009, when Vivitek was one of the first two brands to launch an high-end LED projector based on Delta's design win with TI for an LED projector platform. This has turned into Delta being more and more a branded supplier with Vivitek, however we can still expect to see Delta designs and products show up in other brands' line-up. So, we expect to see other 4K DLP models, using the TI XPR technology, DMD and optical actuator, by Delta.

The HK 2288 is scheduled to be available in Q3 2017 at an MSRP of $2,999. This price is clearly below other XPR DLP projectors, a clear example of Vivitek's value for money strategy, at all performance levels.

At CES Delta will also launch an HD Ultra Short-Throw Laser Projector, the Vivitek's DH765Z-UST that, with its claimed 3500 lumens output, could be very interesting for living and mediaroom use, depending on price. Regardless, the light engine developed for this unit is a likely candidate for implementation in the 4K platform, especially as other brands, like Optoma and BenQ have already announced their Philips HLD engine versions, or intentions for a laser-phosphor based version, for higher brightness.

Or in Delta's words: "The HK2288 4K Ultra HD is Vivitek's inaugural product for its new 4K Home Cinema Projector Product Series, which is expected to grow and expand throughout 2017".

Available in black or white, the powerful HK2288 is engineered with an energy efficient lamp that lasts up to 4,000 hours (Dynamic Eco Mode). Through vivid color, rich blacks and crisp resolution, friends and family will be instantly captivated by what's showing on your home theater.

The HK2288 features:
Real Ultra HD 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution with a projected image size up to 327" (diagonal)
HDR (High Dynamic Range Imaging)
2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio
DLP® DarkChip3™ and BrilliantColor™ technologies for optimal black levels and vibrant color images
Six segment color wheel delivers outstanding reds, greens and blues reproduction
Built-in 10-watt speaker and audio out port
Advanced video processor for fluid video streaming

"Whether you want to project your favorite movie in your home theater or a document in the classroom, with Vivitek's diverse collection of award-winning projection and display solutions, it's easy to find a solution for any situation," said Jeff Fu, General Manager, Display Solutions Business Unit, Delta Electronics. "These new product offerings represent our commitment to providing our customers with quality, long-lasting and high-performing technologies".

Nice little projector. I hope their able to excel beyond REC709 for HDR. Im curious how far out you can go using a color reel. I read somewhere as far as light loss all lamp driven projectors on the market with WCG are losing 40% or more due to color filtering that is a big hit.

Yup, better start with that 30K lumens of the Panasonic;-). Coretronics has the new MCLA engine, example shown at ISE the regular blue laser engine doesnclose to six, the red and blue laser mcla engine does five and the said to be p3 version in the UST is supposedly doing upto four thousand lumens.  So that would be a third off additional loss compared to blu laser, that often is not even fully 709. I am sure it will often be more, so your 40% figure does not surprise me.
