Optomas HD81-LV Home Theater Projector

Optoma, will begin shipping its HD81-LV 1080p home theater projector, the latest incarnation of the company’s unique two-piece projection system that includes a native 1080p projector and studio-grade video processor.

With its extensive connectivity options, personalized setting adjustments and a DarkChip3 chipset from Texas Instruments, the HD81-LV is able to deliver rich and deep textures. The HD81-LV sports 2500 lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio which makes it a unique system in non-light controlled environments.

And, like the HD81, Optoma’s award-winning 1080p projection system, the HD81-LV and its two-piece design eliminates the need for multiple cables going from video sources to the projector.

Together with the optional Anamorphic Lens/Sled Kit from Optoma, the HD81-LV can create a true widescreen cinematic experience. When the anamorphic lens is installed together with the HD81-LV, it creates a 2.35:1 widescreen image, without the loss of color clarity, brightness or resolution.
