Optoma introduced the Optoma UHZ35ST, a short throw, laser true 4K UHD home entertainment and gaming projector following the popular UHD35STx. With its external power supply and various feature upgrades, the UHZ35ST offers more reliability, portability, and energy efficiency than its predecessors.

Featuring 3,500 lumens, a 500,000:1 contrast ratio, and a DuraCore laser light source, the Optoma UHZ35ST delivers high brightness, superior color performance, impressive installation flexibility, and a long life span of up to 30,000 hours in Eco Mode for maintenance-free operation. With the short throw lens, consumers can display up to 100-inch images from a few feet away from the screen, allowing for big-screen viewing and simple set-up in a variety of settings. The UHZ35ST also sports a compact design and is 34% smaller than the UHD35STx, making it the most compact projector in its class, says a press release.

Equipped with horizontal and vertical keystone, as well as 360° and portrait mode operation, the UHZ35ST guarantees flexible installation in virtually any orientation and location with its small, lightweight footprint. Designed with the environment in mind, the UHZ35ST's chassis is made up of 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials to ensure environmental sustainability.

The UHZ35ST also delivers amazing input responses that are unrivaled in consumer projection today. With four times the standard refresh rate at 240Hz in 1080p and an ultra low-input lag of 4ms for PC gaming, the UHZ35ST gives hardcore gamers a competitive advantage with its crystal clear images at every point of action and smooth and responsive gaming experience.

"The new UHZ35ST offers all the top features that have made our popular UHD35STx a favorite, boasting an industry-leading low latency and flexible short throw performance," said Oliver Blundell, Product Manager at Optoma. "Paired with a new laser light source and more sustainable chassis, the UHZ35ST guarantees greater energy efficiency for elevated home entertainment and gaming experiences."
