The high contrast adds more depth to your image with a high contrast projector; with brighter whites and ultra-rich blacks, images come alive and text appears crisp and clear. The Full HD resolution will give you clear and sharp images throughout the day and will be perfect for anything from basic data to Blu Ray movies. It includes full 3D support. As a short throw projector, it is a great space saver and if you want to use it for presentations then you will not have shadows on the screen and no glare in your eyes. With a built in 20W speaker you can listen to your movies without additional audio. It features a long lamp life and vertical keystone correction. This is used so that you can project in the middle of the screen even if the projector is slightly offset.
The all new GT1080Darbee short throw projector builds on the success of the popular GT1080, integrating DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology to bring revolutionary levels of depth and realism. It also features Enhanced Gaming Mode with a 16ms response time, ideal for gaming enthusiasts. The Optoma GT1080Darbee has great connectivity. It features two HDMI ports so you can connect to multiple sources without swapping the cables around. One has MHL so you can project in high definition through your mobile device. There is also a USB port forPC free presentations and a 12V trigger so if you have a ceiling mounted screen, when you turn on the projector the screen will automatically come down. So to summarise it’s a short throw projector ideal for bedrooms and tight spaces, you are best to beam it onto a wall or fixed frame screen as it will make a mobile screen look creased.Take a look at our screens section or give us a call and we can show which one is best for you. The colours are good for the price and in truth you buy this projector for the nice little features with connectivity rather than true colours. Going to be very popular, best to use on a table. Optoma produce good home entertainment units, there are not many with short throws from other brands so it does offer something worth considering. Overall this is a great entertainment projector.
