TVS Pro Introduces New Upgraded UHZ651 4K Laser Projector With Wide Color Gamut
Improved 4K HDR Performance With Deep Rich Blacks And Up To 80% of BT2020
Salt Lake City, November 19, 2018 – TVS Pro, a family owned corporation, today announced the Upgraded UHZ651 4K laser projector with significantly improved color and black level performance. Building on the success of the Optoma UHZ65 laser projector, the modified version takes 4K HDR content to new heights of visual quality for home theater, simulation, post production, and 4K screening applications.
Utilizing a custom engineered PureChrome©* ultra-efficient cinema filter and optical modifications, the Upgraded UHZ651 is able to achieve up to 80% of the elusive but dramatic BT2020 HDR wide color gamut compared to 60% for most lamp-based projectors. Unlike other 4K projectors with conventional cinema filters the PureChrome©* Cinema filter used in the modified UHZ65 is able to produce up to 2,400 lumens and wide color gamut simultaneously due to the high efficiency of this new filter design. In addition, the modification includes improvements to low level blacks and overall black levels for a richer more dramatic cinema experience especially when coupled with the wide color gamut as found in 4K HDR content.
The Upgraded UHZ651 projector is individually calibrated with settings for REC709, DCI P3, and BT2020 thus enabling optimized playback for off air broadcasts, HD Blu-Rays and 4K HDR Blu-Ray discs. Unlike traditional lamp-based projectors which can lose up to 30% of their light output in just a few hundred hours of use, the ultra stable laser light engine in the UHZ65 maintains most of its light output and color balance over long periods of time and is usable up to 20,000 hours of use. There are also no filters or lamps to change or replace – so the projector is virtually maintenance free.
Utilizing HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 the Upgraded UHZ651 is also able to support a full 18Gbps input for the ultimate in video bandwidth, image quality and device compatibility. The included PureMotion©** technology provides dramatically improved motion for live TV, sports and live gaming in both 4K and HD sources. For those who desire the use of a 3.40:1 native aspect screen to avoid the black areas above and below the image, the projector includes the capability for use with or without an anamorphic lens to achieve this capability.
The Upgraded UHZ651 will be available starting in late November at a special introductory price of $4,999 until December 23rd, 2018. It will also be available as a “retro modification” to existing UHZ65 projectors as follows:
- Retro modification for UHZ65 projectors purchased from TVS Pro $999
- Retro modification for UHZ65 not purchased from TVS Pro $1,299
Prices after December 23rd, 2018, will change to $5,499 for the new Upgraded UHZ651 and $1,499 for the Retro modification upgrades if the original was not purchased from TVS Pro and $1,299 for Retro modification upgrades if purchased from TVS Pro.
