Optoma has launched the world’s first projector with integrated Darbee image processing. The new HD28DSE 1080p DLP model features Darbee Visual Presence image enhancement technology and offers a bright  3,000 lumens lamp, making it suitable for both theatres and media rooms.

Darbee Visual Presence image enhancement technology employs neuro-biologic algorithms to enhance detail and depth in skin tones, textures, and reflective surfaces. As we’ve seen, it can have a profound impact on the image. Read our review of the standalone Darbee Visual Presence processor here.

Larry Pace, President, of DarbeeVision says the technology “correct the flatness and loss of realism of every image ever taken,” adding that the technology “uses computation to process images in the same way the brain does, resulting in revolutionary and never-before-seen levels of depth, clarity, object separation.” Optoma Head of Product Marketing, Justin Halls, says the addition will cement Optoma’s position as, “the number one 1080p projector brand in UK.”

The HD28DSE boasts a 30,000:1 contrast ratio and weighs just 2.58kg, making it a snap to either ceiling mount or use in a temporary set-up for movies, gaming and sports. It features two HDMI inputs with MHL connectivity, allowing it to share content from devices such as the Optoma HDCast Pro, Roku streaming stick, tablets and smartphones.

To accommodate streaming devices, such as the Fire TV stick or Goole Chromecast, the projector also has a powered USB output.  A built-in 10 Watt speaker provides convenience audio. Throw ratio is 1.48 - 1.62:1. To aid installation, it can be used with Optoma’s optional WHD200 wireless HDMI system.It also has a 12v trigger.

The HD28DSE has a lamp life of up to 8,000 hours when the lamp mode is set to dynamic. This means if used to watch a typical movie every day, the lamp would last for over ten years, says optoma. It can also be used with 3D content, glasses sold separately.
