Optoma L1 4LED 4K and ultra short throw ISE 2023
Optoma will present at the show Barcelona at ISE 2023a new ultra-short-throw home cinema projector: the L1.
The manufacturer is abandoning the laser solution with phosphor wheel in favor of 4 LED diodes. It is of course a DLP projector with XPR technology to project a 4K HDR image.
Gamers will be happy to learn that, like the Acer GD711 tested on this blog, it manages VRR signals and offers reduced input lag.
L’Optoma L1 offers high brightness, high color performance (Rec.709 > 100% & DCI-P3 > 90%), images up to 105 inches from less than 30 cm from the projection surface, and long life of the light source which can reach 30,000 hours in economy mode.
Its compact and lightweight format makes it one of the smallest devices on the market, which facilitates its portability.
In a world of ultra-short throw projection dominated by mono or triple laser solutions, the choice of LEDs is surprising, especially since previous attempts at JmGO or Viewsonic have not been very successful mainly due to a weak contrast. Optoma may have managed to find a way to improve this part but to find out we will have to wait for the release of L1.
