    Product Research


    DLP Projector: The Optoma HZ39HDR projector incorporates DLP technology from Texas Instruments (TI), which creates razor sharp pictures and amazing videos with incredible colors and brightness, while also providing reliability and longevity. It can be used with 30" to 300" screen sizes.

    • DLP is a reflective technology and can deliver images with both high native ANSI contrast (300,000:1) and exceptional brightness (4000 lumens), creating a picture that is natural and life-like.
    • Video and graphics produced by the latest DLP technology are sharper because the mirrors on the DLP chip are so close together that the gaps between pixels in an image are less noticeable. Spaced less than one micron apart, its mirrors create a crisp, detailed image.
    • The inherent speed of DLP technology means that Optoma projector can output video and images at an astonishing rate of 120Hz for clear, seamless motion.

    DuraCore Laser Light Source: A DuraCore Laser light source eliminates lamp and filter replacements for up to 30,000 hours of maintenance-free operation with consistent brightness, stunning color and exceptional image quality throughout the life of the projector. The HZ39HDR powers on nearly instantly with full brightness thanks to its DuraCore Laser light source, unlike lamp projectors that need warming up.

    • Optoma DuraCore Laser projectors have a sealed, dust resistant optical engine to ensure excellent reliability.
    • The DuraCore Laser light source maintains stable brightness (4000 lumens) and color performance over the life of the projector without regressive decay like lamps.
    • Up to 30,000 hours (Eco mode) or 20,000 hours (Bright mode) of light source life ensures many years of reliable operation without lamp replacements.

    Projection Lens: The Optoma HZ39HDR features a F1.94-2.23 projection lens with a focal length of 12.81mm to 16.74mm. The projection lens offers an optical (1:3x) and digital (0.8-2.0x) zoom with a manual zoom lever and focus ring to make sure your projected image looks great on screen. To adjust the image size, turn the zoom lever clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the projected image size. To adjust the focus, turn the focus ring clockwise or counterclockwise until the image is sharp and detailed. The projector will focus at a distance of 3.3' to 25.9'.

    • Image Shift: Image Shift electronically adjusts the projected image position horizontally or vertically (this is not true Lens Shift where the actual lens moves).
    • Keystone Correction: Keystone Correction adjusts the image distortion caused by tilting the projector. The projector can adjust for Keystone Correction automatically, or you can manually adjust the vertical keystone correction (+/-40 degrees).

    1080p Native Resolution: 1080p resolution gives you sharp and detailed images from HD content without downscaling or compression; perfect for watching Blu-ray movies, HD broadcasting and playing video games. Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps). To preserve the purity of the original image, The Optoma DLP laser projector can accept high definition sources at 24 fps to display movies exactly as the director intended.

    • BrilliantColor: The Optoma HZ39HDR DLP laser projector lets you watch your movies, TV shows, and play games with vivid colors. Its capable of reproducing the Rec.709 color gamut (over 1.07 billion colors), the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic color exactly as the director intended. BrilliantColor technology utilizes a new color-processing algorithm and enhancements to enable higher brightness while providing true, more vibrant colors in picture.
    • Dynamic Black Technology: Dynamic Black Technology gives more depth to your image by smoothly adjusting the laser output, based on the brightness information of each frame. As a result, the Optoma HZ39HDR DLP laser projector can create a stunning high contrast ratio of 300,000:1. Bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.

    Dual HDMI Inputs: With dual HDMI inputs (one HDMI 2.0 and one HDMI 1.4a), you can connect your game console, set-top box, laptop, PC, Blu-ray player or media streamer to the Optoma HZ39HDR DLP laser projector.

    Mounting Options: The Optoma DLP laser projector is designed to be installed in one of 4 possible positions. It can be tabletop or ceiling mounted in front of or behind your projection screen (ceiling mounting bracket sold separately).

The projector is equipped with three adjustable feet for adjusting the image height when installing the projector on a tabletop. There are three M4 threaded inserts on the bottom of the projector to attach a ceiling mount bracket (sold separately).

    • The tilt angle of the projector should not exceed 15 degrees, nor should the projector be installed in any way other than the tabletop and ceiling mount, otherwise lamp life could decrease dramatically, and may lead to other unpredictable damages.
    • Allow at least 11.8125" on both the left and right sides of the projector, as well as allow at least 3.9375" above and behind the projector for proper ventilation.

    Note: Your room layout or personal preference will dictate which installation location you select. Take into consideration the size and position of your screen, the location of a suitable power outlet, as well as the location and distance between the projector and the rest of your audio/video equipment.

    Projection Distance: The further away the projector is placed from the screen the projected image size increases and vertical offset also increases proportionally. See chart below for recommended projector distance based on size of screen; or use the Optoma Projection Calculator to assist you with placement of the projector.
