Optoma GT1080HDR and GT1090HDR Black Friday Sales:
The Optoma GT1090 HDR Laser Projector is a 1080p gaming model designed from scratch, delivering ample brightness for use in well-lit environments, boasting 1399 lumens. It opts for a 4K imaging chip over a laser light source, ensuring zero maintenance or lamp replacement hassles. The GT1090 is a compact, lightweight projector with a short-throw lens, which we’ll delve into shortly.
For those moments when the remote isn’t within reach, there’s a convenient jack pack at the rear, allowing this projector to excel in classrooms or conference rooms. It features a pair of HDMI ports, including one compatible with 4K HDR, even though the projector’s native resolution is 1080p.
In addition to HDMI, there’s a VGA input and output, along with an RCA composite video input for legacy components. A LAN port is provided for network control, as well as an RS232 port and a 12-volt trigger. Three analog audio inputs are included, including one for a microphone, alongside analog audio output.
A 3D sync output is onboard for an external RF 3D emitter, although it’s unnecessary if you use DLP link glasses. Despite this array of connections, two notable elements are missing. First, there’s no digital audio output or return channel on the HDMI ports.
Analog Stereo Output:
Your sound options are limited to the analog stereo output or the built-in speakers. These speakers are powered by 10 watts each and can adequately fill a small family room. However, they tend to sound somewhat thin and can’t match an external home theater system. Also, the USB port is solely intended for supplying 5-volt power to a streaming dongle or other accessories.
The short-throw lens on the GT1090 is impressively concise, boasting a 0.5:1 throw ratio. It projects a 100-inch image from a mere 3 feet 8 inches away, making it the ideal projector for confined spaces.
There’s no optical zoom or lens shift, only digital zoom, lens shift, and keystone correction. To maintain optimal image quality for permanent installations, try to position the projector where you can avoid utilizing these controls. Keystone correction is automatic, and the manual lens shift lever has a satisfyingly concise feel to it.
With an IPX5 rating for dust resistance, it’s guaranteed to endure 20,000 hours of use in normal power mode and up to 30,000 hours in eco mode. One notable advantage is rapid startup, taking less than thirty seconds to display an image from a connected source, and it powers off instantly. This version of the Duracore engine utilizes a single blue laser.
Overall, the this laser projector is a great machine for those wanting an immersive multimedia experience. The short-throw lens negates the need for complex morring setups, and its 4K imaging chip gives you sharp visuals in any environment. Whether it’s in your home, at the office or in a classroom, there are few projectors as well rounded as this one.
