4K UHD Projectors are a new addition to the line up. With realistic life like image quality, 4K projectors are the next level in projection. The high detailed 4K resolution produces an extra sharp, extra clear image, even on the larger screens sizes available today. Though resolution improvements in the past have made small improvements such as the change from HD to FULLHD, 4K represents a huge leap forward with a resolution 4 times that of FULLHD. This means one 4K projector would be producing the same detail as 4 FULL HD projectors combined!
The new range of 4K projectors have been released in time to coincide with the release of the next generation Xbox and Playstation 4K compatible game consoles. Many streaming apps now offer 4K movies and even pay TV service Foxtel has 4K movies and 4K sport content available.
The real benefit of 4K projector is the incredibly high detail level it produces. In fact, a 4K image features 3840 pixels wide and 2160 pixels high, working out to approximately 8.3 million pixels! This produces an incredibly sharp and detailed image, even on very large screens.
As an added benefit the 4K projectors are future proof. Streaming services are releasing more and more 4K content and soon 4K will be the standard resolution available for viewing all movies and games.
Being new technology, 4K projectors can cost a bit more than a HD or FULL HD projector. Whilst not long ago a 4K projector would cost well over $10,000 new releases are coming out all the time, some well below the $2000 mark.
4K UHD Projectors produce an incredible amount of resolution, which means incredibly small pixels... and lots of them! With so many pixels it can be challenging to offer a good level of adjustments, such as lens shift or keystone correction. Many 4K projectors have minimal adjustments however technology is constantly evolving and this will always improve. Due to the high resolution the 4K resolution tends to feature a slower response time than lower resolutions. This is of no concern when watching films but may not noticeable when playing fast pace 4K games. There have been 4K gaming projectors released recently with specialised 'gaming modes' to assist in speeding up response times.
