Lights on viewing

Full HD 1080p
1080p resolution gives you sharp and detailed images from HD content without downscaling or compression; perfect for watching Blu-ray movies, HD broadcasting and playing video games.
Capable of receiving and displaying HDR meta data, Optoma HDR compatible projectors allow you to see far more detail and texture. Objects look more solid and life like and the extra detail creates a greater sense of depth. It’s like looking through a window.
Watch your movies, TV shows and play games with stunning colours in any environment. Optoma projectors provide reliable performance suitable for any content and environment. Our home projectors are capable of reproducing the Rec.709 colour gamut, the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic colour exactly as the director intended. Or more saturated colours for a punchy looking image, great for gaming and animated movies.
Dynamic black technology
This feature gives more depth to your image by smoothly adjusting the lamp output, based on the brightness information of each frame; to create a stunning high contrast ratio. Bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.
Optoma projectors can display true 3D content from almost any 3D source, including 3D Blu-ray players, 3D broadcasting and the latest generation games consoles.
Dual HDMI inputs
Play games, stream videos and share photos on the big screen in the comfort of your own home. With dual HDMI inputs, you can easily connect to your games console, set-top box, laptop, PC, Blu-ray player or media streamer with a single cable. You can even turn it into a smart projector by connecting an HDMI dongle like the Google Chromecast™, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV™ or Roku® stick.

Auto power off
There may be instances when the projector is left running when not in use. To help save energy, the “auto power off” feature automatically turns off the projector after a set period of time if it is not being used
This feature allows the projector to be instantly powered on again, if it is accidentally switched off.
Instantly stream Full 1080p and 3D content from a Blu-ray™ player, set-top box, games console or AV receiver to your projector wirelessly; eliminating the hassle and extra cost of installing long cables using the WHD200 (sold separately).
When it comes to the actual gameplay experience, that’s pretty great. This will do in excess of 150 inch display size, should you need that, and for a pretty wide variety of games it’s brilliant. While I don’t think this is going to be the perfect option for FPS games where seeing every detail up close can help, but in racing games for example it looks smooth and responsive, and generally great.
When it comes to using the projector for other things than gaming, it’s great. It’s crisp, well coloured to the eye, and damn bright at 3400 lumens.
Would I put one on my desk? If I had the space, yes. This is possibly the perfect have your friends over to game device and rather nice to watch too, so definitely.
The HD29H’s unique game talents aren’t its only achievement. It also proves a surprisingly effective home cinema machine, combining more brightness and more contrast than any other similarly priced HDR-capable projector.
Many projectors claim to be designed for gaming, but no others back this up with an input lag figure as low as the 8.4ms Optoma claims for the HD29H. My own measurements suggest that this claimed figure isn’t optimistic. In fact, I measured the time the projector takes to render its images at fractionally under 8ms.
HD29H is also the first projector that can play HD games all the way up to 120Hz refresh rates while still retaining the 8ms or so response times.
Home Cinema Choice
This blindingly fast DLP gaming projector brings HDR support to bright, colourful 1080p images. The combo is a bigscreen winner.
This Optoma may be gaming-focused, but its image quality is solid with movies too.
Heaps of fun
As an all-purpose media room projector, Optoma’s HD29H has a lot going for it. Its bright output makes it easy to use in less than perfect conditions and picture quality is impressive, save for some black level shortcomings. The combination of 1080p and HDR is unusual, but worthwhile. Brilliant for gaming, good for general entertainment, not too pricey… and heaps of fun
