Key Features

Compatibility with the HDR10 and HLG content ensures the Optoma UHD38x renders vivid 4K UHD content. Optoma HDR tone mapping combined with Dynamic Black technology presents an optimized image with brighter whites, deeper black levels and realistic colors that jump off the screen for an immersive visual experience.

Optimized for Gaming
Enhanced Gaming Mode reduces input lag down to 4.2ms at 1080p 240Hz for virtually lag-free input response. The Optoma UHD38x has unparalleled input response time at 4K UHD resolutions for a projector – 16ms – so you can decide if you want a competitive advantage at 1080p, or incredible detail with 4K UHD resolution.

Next-Generation Gaming & Beyond
Have a Microsoft Xbox Series S|X or a Sony Playstation 5? Enjoy 1080p 120Hz or 4K UHD 60Hz game play for blur-free visuals and outstanding smoothness.

Vivid, Cinematic Color
The eight-segment color wheel produces vivid, cinematic images ideal for home entertainment.

Integrated speaker
Complete your home entertainment experience with the convenience of a powerful built-in speaker for exceptional sound quality and an easy set up without the need for costly external speakers.

Daytime Viewing
No need to wait until it's dark to start gaming or streaming. Enjoy an incredible 4,000 lumens of brightness in any room in your home, day or night.

Reduced Eye Strain
TV screens produce harsh direct light causing eye strain for viewers. Projection screens reflect light rather than emitting light for a more comfortable viewing experience.

240Hz smooth motion
Enjoy ultra-smooth fluid motion and reduced ghosting. A high refresh rate makes it easier to keep track of the action, giving you a better chance of hitting your target earlier. Ideal for fast action gaming.

Long Lamp Life
Enjoy up to 15,000 hours of lamp life. That's the equivalent of an average of two 2-hour movies every day 10+ years.

Extensive Connectivity
Connect to the latest gaming consoles, media players and other HDMI devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, Google Chromecast Ultra, Apple TV 4K, 4K Bluray and Roku Ultra. Inputs include dual HDMI and more.
