Room-friendly - with short throw lens
Thanks to its short throw lens, this Optoma projector is ideal for when space is tight. Positioned just over a metre from the wall, the Optoma produces a mighty 100” image, making the biggest pictures in the smallest rooms easy to achieve. Settle for a 65” image and you get a crystal-clear picture just 70cm from the wall – making this ideal for desktop projection.
Laser power for amazing clarity
Using Texas Instruments’ DMP DLP system with a laser phosphor light, the HZ40ST 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 4200 ANSI Lumens, the HZ40ST 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 HZ40ST 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 brightness and response, bringing every detail to life.
Pin sharp, 1080p detail from Texas instrument's DLP chip
Using Texas Instrument's DLP technology, this Optoma short throw projector offers crystal-clear clarity, sharply defined images and true, natural colour. Even at larger screen sizes, detail remains crisp and blur-free. Making the most of HD video sources, the Optoma projects 1080p Full HD images, and is compatible with 4K UHD signals.
Impressive as the Optoma HZ40ST 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.
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 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 HZ40ST 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Older viewer from Great daylight viewing experience. I bought this projector because my room layout is such that I couldn't use a UST laser projector. My motorised screen is concealed above two large french windows and this projector is perfect for my setup. It produces a really good image even on sunny days with lots of ambient light, as the room gets darker, the image goes from watchable to stunning even with a floor lamp on. Jon and Michael at the Cardiff branch were extremely knowledgeable and helpful when I was trying to decide which projector to buy. I have used Richer Sounds before and will definitely use them again.
