The picture is very clear and vivid in a completely dark environment, and the color is slightly weakened when the light is turned on, but the overall picture is excellent. We also tested the Optoma HD39HDR projector with a TES136 illuminometer, and the peak brightness was 3896lm, which is about 97.4% of the official nominal brightness of 4000lm. Generally speaking, it is best if the peak brightness can be close to 95% of the nominal value or even exceed the nominal value.


Color is the most critical factor in the performance of the projector screen. So how does the Optoma HD39HDR projector perform?

The Optoma HD39HDR projector uses the latest generation of high-end integrated image processors, and Brilliant Color II technology with a 6-segment color wheel. While improving the brightness of the picture, the color saturation is increased by strengthening the mid-tones, making the picture color more realistic and vivid.

From the screen shot, we can see that this projector increases color saturation by enhancing the mid-tones, making the color of the picture more realistic and vivid. The items in the picture above are brightly colored but not oversaturated, with natural transitions, clear distinctions, and no color overflow.

4K HDR video
Although this product is a 1080P projector, it supports 4K resolution signal input display and HDR Like function. Let's take a look at the performance of playing 4K HDR video.

We can see from the 4K HDR video screen shot that the picture is clearly layered and the transition is very natural. Whether it is the white clouds lingering on the top of Mount Fuji or the fireworks burning from the firewood, it all looks real and natural.

For a home projector, noise is a very critical factor, after all, no one wants to watch a movie in a noisy environment. In the living room with an ambient noise of 31 decibels, the noise value measured at a distance of 1 meter from the machine is 33.6 decibels, and the noise generated by the machine is hardly felt.
