Laser power for amazing clarity
Using Texas Instruments’ DMP DLP system with a laser phosphor light, the HZ40 is at the cutting-edge of projector technology. Laser power gives you many advantages. The first is the picture - with superb levels of contrast (2,500,000:1) and colour realism, it makes image quality far more lifelike. The light source should last longer than a typical projector bulb and provide a more consistent performance over its lifetime.
’Lights on’ performance with class-leading brightness
Boasting an outstanding brightness figure of 4000 ANSI Lumens, the HZ40 not only offers bright and vivid colours but is also able to be used in many lighting conditions. Even during daylight conditions with curtains or blinds open, the Optoma produces a bright and detailed picture – thanks to its sensational brightness.
HDR enhanced picture quality
Compatible with HDR video, the HZ40 lets you see far more detail and texture. HDR enhances the brightest and darkest sections of scenes – letting you see detail in what was previously a solid block of colour. It also makes the rest of the colour spectrum appear more natural, giving an even greater sense of ‘being there’.
It’s not just movies and sports that look great on the big screen – gaming takes a massive step up, too. Switch the projector to Game mode and you get maximum contrast and vivid colour, bringing every detail to life.
Rec.709 for picture brilliance
Colour precision, resolution, frame rate and display specifications are all guaranteed by meeting one of the highest HD video standards seen in professional-grade home cinema today: Rec. 709. Instigated by the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), Rec.709 approval means a true cinema-like appearance.
Pin sharp, 1080p detail from Texas instrument's DLP chip
Using Texas Instrument's DLP technology, this Optoma offers crystal clear clarity, sharply defined images and true, natural colour. Even at larger screen sizes, the detail is astounding and would have once been the preserve of projectors costing many times more. In order to make the most of high definition video sources, the Optoma will also project 1080p Full HD images, making it the perfect match for your Blu-ray player or Full HD gaming device.
Impressive as the Optoma HZ40 is in 2D, it's only when you take advantage of the optional 3D system that the picture becomes truly immersive. Just add the optional Optoma 3D glasses system, connect up to a suitable source and enjoy 3D images that are every bit as bold as at the cinema. The optional glasses are also fully rechargeable.
HDMI with MHL
With twin HDMI (1 x HDR compatible) sockets, the Optoma is well equipped to handle your digital sources. The HDMI interface is also compatible with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link). This lets you connect up a suitable smartphone or tablet to the HDMI socket and watch HD video, at up to 1080p Full HD, from your mobile device, on the big screen!
USB power to drive smart accessories
Featuring a handy USB power output, the HZ40 can be used to power USB-powered smart devices, such as the Google’s Chromecast, Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Plug Chromecast, or similar, in and you’ve easy access to smart video and TV services without the need for any other device or lengthy connection cables.
Enjoy a bigger, brighter picture for longer, with the Optoma HZ40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Brilliant projector in a room with day light The team at Richer Sounds in Oxford were brilliant as i wanted to put a cinema into an existing room with lots of windows which couldn't be covered, They directed me to this projector which was a little stretching the budget but was well worth it, I already have a Optima HD29 in our bedroom and was going to buy the same again but for the extra this is well worth it as the picture is so sharp and playing 4K films its so crisp.. would definitely give this 5 out of 5 for the price you pay..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindsay1 from Excellent value John in the Glasgow branch helped me choose this projector and I'm more than delighted with it. The picture quality is great, it gives us a huge picture in a small-ish room and it's really bright so we don't need black out blinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PShah from First impressions... My old led projector broke down, bought the optoma hz40 as a replacement. Bought yesterday, paid for next day delivery (£5). Easy to set up, have it ceiling mounted, took a bit of adjusting, but that was an issue with my old mount. Connected Sky Q box (as the projector is our day to day TV as well) and all good straight out of the box. Image quality is really good, not tried it in daylight yet, but it's plenty bright, so should be fine with ambient light. Best of all IT IS SUPER QUIET. You really don't know it's on. Initial impressions is really positive. It's only just come to market, so not too many reviews out there...£1300 may seem a bit high, but for the quietness, brightness, and image quality it's worth it. To top it all the internal speaker is not too bad (but I'm using my surround system anyway).
