Optoma Currently Has World First 240 Hz Consumer Projector

Optoma’s UHD50X is the world’s first 240 Hz projector that has been designed for gaming.

While specialty laboratory vendors such as Viewpixx has had ultra-high-refresh-rate projectors for years at up to 1440 Hz, Optoma has a relatively inexpensive consumer 4K projector capable of 240Hz at 1080p.

The Optoma UHD50X (Amazon Page) is a true 4K projector at 3840×2160, running at 240 Hz. It allows PC or console gamers to enjoy the ultra-rapid refresh rate, giving them visuals that are blur-free.

The input lag that the projector may experience has been minimized down to 16ms at 1080p 240 Hz, with a 25ms response time running at 4K.

Here is a table of the source versus input lag as per Optoma’s site.

Input Source 4K 60Hz 1440p 60Hz 1080p 60Hz 1080p 120Hz 1080p 240Hz
Input Lag 25.8ms 25.8ms 23.8ms 18.2ms 15.7ms

Aside from the above, the UHD50X also has compatibility with HDR10 and HLG content and can project up to 302-inches. Optoma states on their site that the projector lamp will last up to 15,000 hours in Dynamic Black Mode, with up to 4,000 hours in Bright Mode.
