"When you are looking for a high-quality 3D projector and want the absolute best value for your money, the HD33 is exactly what you've been looking for." Projector Central.
We'd be the first to praise the virtues of a 3D TV: an involving viewing experience that draws you in to the image and provides genuine depth of field. As good as they may be, though, nothing beats a 3D projector; especially when the image can be up to 300" (7.64m) in size. Now that's truly immersive! The Optoma HD33 is just such a projector.
When used with the supplied 3D-RF system and 3D glasses (1 pair included), the Optoma HD33 will let you enjoy 3D films in true cinema style. Yet Optoma hasn't just installed a standard 3D system and left it at that; the HD33 boasts some serious 3D technology, including a world first. Firstly, there's the PureD system. One of the disadvantages of using active 3D glasses is reduced brightness. PureD uses advanced image processing and dynamic bulb modes to provide a brighter, more realistic image - much more like the best 2D projectors. The world first from Optoma is the Wi-Fi RF glasses. Rather than using Infra-Red, the HD33 uses a Radio Frequency system. This not only reduces the chance of interference but also provides a higher contrast and brighter images. The 3D-RF glasses are also fully rechargeable.
Whether 2D or 3D, the HD33 impresses with other aspects of its picture, too. The DLP technology from Texas Instruments maximises light output and has the added benefit of eliminating crosstalk from 3D images. 1080p resolution gives the HD33 superb detail - especially noticeable on larger screen sizes. Furthermore, the HD33 is fully compatible with 24p film speed, ensuring that films appear exactly as the director intended. Some of the HD33's rivals still use the inferior LCD-type projectors and it's with the contrast ratio that this is most apparent. Using the preferred method of ANSI to measure the contrast ratio, the HD33 comes in with an extremely credible 500:1 rating - far better than most LCD competitors. The upshot of this is superior performance in terms of realism and noticeably improved clarity and depth in lighter conditions.
When it comes to daily use, the HD33 is user friendly. A noise level of just 27dB makes it whisper quiet - literally. It also has a wide range of sockets. Twin HDMI sockets that are, of course, 3D compatible, let you connect up a couple of HD sources such as a Blu-ray player and games console. In addition to this there are also component, composite and PC inputs. Weighing just 4.5KG, the HD33 is lighter than many projectors, making it ideal for ceiling mounting.
For big screen entertainment with the option of 3D, the Optoma HD33 is a true standard setter.
