4K videoprojector, which model to choose and at what price?
New 4K videoprojector is the must for big picture enthusiasts. Please note, your sources must then be also in 4k, which is not always the case especially at Netflix…
For small budgets, the first projectors “4K” from 1166 € (excl.taxes) are projectors that simulate a 4K image by “wobulation”, that is to say by ultra fast display of a Full HD image shifted by a few pixels . These projectors give the illusion of a 4K image and the result is very good. Below this budget already very low, attention to the contrast ratio of projectors and Ultra Short Focales too attractive: many professionals do not consider these products as good projectors. If your budget is small, prefer FULL HD projectors. They will give you an excellent image for a much more attractive price, especially if your sources are also in FULL HD (1080p), which remains the current standard box TV for example.
The true native 4K projectors at Sony are available from around € 4800, because they are projectors with truly 4K native resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels.
Our selection of 4K videoprojectors:
Optoma UHD370X = 1166 € excl.taxes
This entry-level 4K videoprojector uses wobulation to simulate a 4K image. It displays 4 fast Full HD images offset from each other at 240 Hz to simulate a 4K image. The six-segment chromatic wheel (RVBRVB) limits without completely eliminating the famous “rainbow” effect that forms at the level of luminous objects against a dark background. The Otoma UHD350X displays the image with a delay “input lag” of 75 ms, to discourage gamers. In short, a projector that gives a satisfactory 4K image to start at a low price. 25dB, 5.2Kg
