Introducing the New Theo-Z65 Lite 4K Projector With Wide Color Gamut
I am tickled by current performance
The image color and contrast were excellent. The HDR picture without a doubt is better than before. There is a vibrancy to the picture and contrast improvement that is very satisfactory. Reds are particularly vibrant to me. Videos that are not HDR are better calibrated as well though I didn't spend much time there. In essence, what Ted Bollinger states in the YouTube video is my experience. I have not noticed a loss of image brightness but then again, my theater room is very dark....all I can say is wow... Out of the park home run...The demo video on YouTube doesn't really give it justice as compared to actual viewing of the projector in your own environment.
I have watched a few movies in 4K/ HDR format and have been blown away with the color pop!
I am very happy with the picture quality of UHD 4K format as well as the HDX upscaling . Colors are amazing and have a beautiful pop. They are very close to my LG C7 OLED 65" which I am using in reference to [the upgraded] UHZ651. Blacks are good for this price point and I can say this is very good for a DLP projector. Overall, I give this projector a high rate for color, picture quality and the fact that it is maintenance free. I was just little bit afraid about "Rainbow effect" but with this unit it is very minimal.
The colors and brightness - I'm very pleased!
It makes my Panasonic plasma look very dull. Also, I'm very impressed with watching regular Blu-ray discs - looks very good!

How It Works:
Step 1. Carefully box up and ship your existing UHZ65 to us here:
TVS Pro (UPGRADE)
170 East 2100 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84115
You may want to put an old shirt or a a cloth on top of it to protect the shiny gloss of the projector – as they are easily scratched.
Step 2. Once we receive your projector, we will modify it and calibrate it.
Step 3. We will ship it back to you and provide tracking.
Currently, with our Optoma contract, we are not authorized to sell or ship projectors outside of the US - even though Optoma representatives from around the world are aware of our modification.
Unfortunately, we are only authorized by Optoma USA to perform these modifications. If we were to do these modifications on one purchased outside of the US, we cannot, at this time, guarantee that the projector would still be covered under warranty.
We understand there is international demand, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
As mentioned above, we are only authorized by Optoma USA to perform these modifications on projectors bought from Optoma USA. If these modifications were performed on a projector purchased outside of the US, we cannot, at this time, guarantee that the projector would still be covered under warranty.
Although Optoma USA has approved this modification they will not make them, nor will the international divisions make them either.
In addition, it is not just a simple custom-made filter installation that we've had made for the projector. There are additional optical modifications (such as reducing the amount of reflected light inside the light engine) that have to be done to each projector by a highly skilled technician. On top of that, custom calibration and configuration has to be done to effectively to reach 80% BT2020. Each Theo-Z65 projector takes over 5 hours to modify (The Theo-Z65 Lite takes much less time); it's very time consuming. It is not something that can easily and quickly be done.
It is not simply an addition of a filter. There are additional optical modifications (such as reducing the amount of reflected light inside the light engine) that have to be done to each projector. On top of that, custom calibration has to be done to effectively reach 80% BT2020. As word has gotten out, demand for the upgrade has also risen.
Fortunately, due to improved filters and a new process, we now are able to make the upgrades quicker than they have taken in the past.
