In order to achieve such value, Vivitek’s budget masterpiece deploys TI’s recently developed and acclaimed fast-switching 0.66” 4K DLP DMD chip, which generates UHD-4K’s requisite 8.3 million individual pixels complete with DLP DarkChip3 and BrilliantColor refinements for optimal black levels, and vibrantly cinematic on-screen images. The chip’s innovative eXpanded Pixel Resolution (XPR) technology uses 4.15 million (2716 x 1528) mirrors in conjunction with an optical actuator to deliver two discrete pixels for each mirror per frame, reformulated through powerful video processing to map and reproduce the native 4K image. In tests this technology has been able to fully resolve a 4K 1-pixel line pattern and is, by expert consent, indistinguishable from native 4K projection – unlike pixel-shifting techniques employing standard 1080p chips.
Super-compact in a market of 4K giants and available in white, the HK2288 is equipped with a usefully wide 1.39-2.09 throw, a 1.5x zoom, and vertical lens shift for trouble-free installation and set-up. As many as three HDMI 2.0 inputs are available and dual infrared sensors positioned front and back allow for easy control from an intuitive full-function remote. Lamp life of up to 4,000 hours is possible in Dynamic Economy Mode.
