Introducing, the Optoma HD230X Full HD 1080P projector; the best recognised digital cinema performance, capable of producing an image size of up to 300 inches diagonally. Full HD sports and gaming are not to be missed on this projector, whilst the cinema and reference settings are paramount when it comes to watching movies. The cinema setting produces a bright, well balanced and true to life colour reproduction which only complements the clarity of detail offered by the HD230X - essential for reaching the optimum image quality of any film.
In the reference setting colours can be muted for a more natural effect, whereas use with a PC relies on bright mode to give a sharp and impactful image, apt for displaying excel sheets or PowerPoint presentations that need to be clear. The menu is user friendly and makes it simple to choose from a range of modes and settings including colour, contrast, brightness and more.
The projector chassis is refined with a glossy black finish which complements the curved body and hard lines of the casing, but in addition to suiting a home cinema aesthetically, the HD230X is also one of the smallest 1080p projectors on the market. An advantage that is exclusive to DLP technology, which has traditionally been very lightweight compared to other technologies. Furthermore, there is housing for a universal ceiling mount.
2300 ANSI lumens brightness, extensive HD connectivity, 24P operation and a superior ANSI contrast all cumulate to an outstanding 1080p projector, but it’s the affordability and low running cost of this product that really make you appreciate these features.
With the bright 2300 ANSI Lumens, you can watch live sports or play action-packed games any time of day. Alternatively, you can use the additional brightness for an extra-large screen to give you that true home cinema experience. The HD230X can project an 80” diagonal image from less than 3 meters away, meaning it will fit easily into most living rooms. A new lamp will last a remarkable 3,000 hours in normal mode and 4,000 hours in economy mode, but when a lamp does need replacing the quick lamp release makes this a simple task. A full range of Optoma screens are also available to suit any install.
Two HDMI v1.3 digital inputs are a massive advantage of the HD230X and greatly benefit the user in terms of practicality. This unit can be used by gamers, sports fans and home cinema enthusiasts. A games console and digital television receiver can be plugged in via HDMI simultaneously making switching between sources literally the push of a button, as opposed to awkward manual switching. Additional connectivity includes all standard video inputs: composite, component and VGA.
‘24P’ also known as ‘24 frames per second’ is the video format that most films are traditionally shot in. Most televisions can’t display video at this rate, so in order to preserve the purity of the original image the HD230X can accept High Definition sources at 24 frames per second. Therefore, you can watch movies exactly as the director intended.
BrilliantColor technology used in DLP projectors; features multi-colour processing to produce stunning, vibrant colours the screen. Unlike other technologies such as LCD which use just 3 primary colours to produce an image, DLP technology with BrilliantColor uses up to six separate colours.
Colour accuracy is not only improved, but it brightens secondary colours as well. This combination produces a new level of colour performance that increases the brightness of the colours by up to 50% over DLP projectors without BrilliantColor.
What’s more, is that Optoma is so confident that the HD230X colour will not change or decay in use that we have guaranteed it will retain the same quality performance as the day of purchase, for at least 5 years.

Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second. To preserve the purity of the original image the HD230X can accept High Definition sources at 24 frames per second and so display movies exactly as the director intended. The HD230X incorporates BrilliantColor multi-colour processing technology to bring stunning, vibrant colour to your screen. Using six separate primary and secondary colours to produce a new level of colour performance and control, BrilliantColor increases colour brightness by up to 50 % over other technologies to create accurate true to life images.
The staggering brightness of the HD230X enables two exciting prospects.....Ultra Brightness means that the HD230X can be used in environments where the light is not completely controlled, for a lights-on, full HD 1080p Home Cinema experience. Also, Ultra brightness means your screen can be huge; the HD230X can deliver SMPTE standard brightness on screen sizes of up to nearly 5 m - making it suitable for small auditoriums or events with a large audience.
