Comparison of the magnified area of a projected image
Using sophisticated frame-interpolation technology, advanced motion control processing eliminates motion blurring or image judder, even in high-speed action sequences.
Vertical Lens Shift
Simplify installation with vertical lens shift, which provides a wider range of projector placement possibilities. This makes it easier to position the projector in your room and enables a wider range of screen size options.
SDR to HDR Conversion
Give your SDR content a second lease of life with SDR to HDR conversion. This unique feature lets you enjoy near-HDR content from any standard source – providing enhanced contrast, detail and colours to all SDR content.
Another advantage of 4K UHD DMD
1080p 4K enhanced projectors need to crossover the pixels to achieve a higher resolution. This causes Misalignment between pixels, this is most apparent on sharp edges such as screen text and borders. Because the 4K DMD device produces two distinct pixels it is completely alignment free.

The Digital Fix
It’s a mid-range 4K device with an impressive specification and even more impressive results.
Blacks are black, whites are white and every colour between is accurately reproduced.
Everything we’ve thrown at it has been handled wonderfully. While the colours looked great in HD, they were truly astounding when HDR was thrown into the mix with the added depth bringing about something that was as lifelike as we’ve seen. The added detail brought by the increased resolution made for an end result that was better than any cinema showing we’ve seen.
The UHD65 is an impressive projector by any measure and the best we’ve seen with a conventional lamp.
The best-value 4K and HDR beamer for a proper cinematic experience
We’ve never seen another projector perform this well at this price, with carefully balanced colours and oodles of detail.
Even when you drop down to Blu-ray discs’ Full HD resolution you’ll still be greeted by an enjoyable and insightful image that scales up admirably to well over 100 inches in size. At those dimensions there’s an indescribable drama to the viewing experience that a telly can’t recreate
The UHD65 is a hugely enjoyable projector that manages to deliver very good images in both ambient light and blackout conditions. Most projectors commit to one or the other, halving their versatility.
Though the UHD65 sacrifices both ultra-high brightness for daytime viewing and completely convincing black levels in a blackout, it’s actually giving as close the ‘best of both worlds’ as any projector could: From upscaled HD TV channels and DVDs to Netflix 4K and a Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, few users will have complaints about the cleanness, detail or colour of the UHD65’s images.
Optoma projectors are known as DLP devices, which are usually better optimized for home theater usage than their competitors. Also the UHD65 sets itself apart from others through its special features. The UHD65 has good motion playback and is not too saturated in HD colors. Optoma has expanded the quality of the DLP devices with the UHD65.
Hi Fi Forum
“The Optoma UHD65 is a 4K projector with a stylish design. Thanks to the black housing, this one-chip DLP projector is highly recommended for the dark home cinema. The generous zoom and the small lens shift make the final image orientation on the screen pleasantly easy. While black level and (on / off) contrast are still bit of improvement, the UHD65 impresses with its fantastic detail and a very good sharpness. The primary and secondary colors succeed perfectly with regard to REC.709 standard. All in all, the Optoma UHD65 is made for a high-resolution feature movies and exciting sports games at home – and the projector is also pleasantly quiet.”
Picture detail is unquestionably high. The projector looks particularly fine with the 10-bit 2160p output from a Sky Q set-top box. Star Trek Beyond is hugely engaging in terms of fine picture detail and colour vibrancy; Warcraft shows a mesmerising amount of texture and fine detail.
It’s often difficult to appreciate the resolution boost offered by 4K UHD on a relatively small UHD TV. However, supersize your sources to 100 inches plus, and the extra detail and depth becomes wonderfully self-evident. This Optoma does a marvellous cinematic job, particularly with the likes of Sky Q and streaming 4K dongles, as well as regular Blu-ray. Plus, colour fidelity is lush. It’s also compact and respectfully quiet in operation.
“Optoma has produced a sophisticated 4K HDR projector at a competitive price”
“those looking for a top-notch projector should give the Optoma UHD65 serious consideration.”
“It may not have all the bells and whistles of a high-end 4K projector, but it is future-proof and should keep you happy for years. At this price, the Optoma looks the one to beat.”
“It should keep you happy for years”
The Optoma UHD65 is an exceptional value for the feature sets that it delivers. It has superb image quality for projectors priced in the mid-$2,000 range thanks to it’s 4K capabilities, suitably dark blacks, and rich, vibrant color. The Optoma UHD65 has the key strategic advantage of excelling at 4K HDR. Even with its default settings, it delivers more-than-acceptable picture quality with HDR, and any tweaks you make to improve it get saved and automatically loaded every time it detects HDR input. The UHD65 also features a beautiful frame interpolation system that works extremely well with both 1080p and, notably, 4K.”
Home Cinema Choice
“image clarity is gorgeously high, with splendid fine detail.”
“This clarity is joined by vibrant hues, with the projector employing BrilliantColor to boost overall brightness.”
“Overall, the UHD65 is a great 4K proposition. Feature set and image clarity are excellent for its class.”
Because this is a single chip projector compared to the three chip D-ILA, 3LCD and SXRD competition, the UHD65 is very sharp with excellent edge definition without using any processing at all. Colours to the Rec.709 standard are also accurate producing a nice looking image with believable skin tones and no signs of posterisation with subtle changes in hue over a large area of the same colour, such as blue skies.
“Optoma’s UHD65 is capable of massive cinematic detail and vibrant colour”
“Overall HDR performance is fabulous though -thanks to its peak brightness of 2,200 lumens, the upfiring lights in the catacomb action sequence of John Wick 2 display the right amount of intensity.”
“In terms of picture quality, this is cracking.”

“This projector has amazing sharpness.”
“Exquisite image for bright and mixed scenes”
“With PureMotion, fluidity is really excellent, whether in 1080p or in Ultra HD.”
“Dynamic Black is so helpful for good black levels and contrast that I strongly recommend you use it”
“ANSI contrast is good from 300:1; well the Optoma UHD65 is a champion in this area with 520:1 after calibration. This is a very satisfying point because it obtains this image radiance specific to the best DLP.”
Optoma UHD65 Home Theater Projector Comparison: Epson Pro Cinema 4040
“With good 4K source material, the Optoma UHD4K clearly has better detail and sharpness. It also has the benefit of almost no visible pixels lines or screen door effect.”
“…Optoma was able to reproduce detail in the star field that the Epson simply could not. We concluded that this was a very good image to show the difference between 4K e-shift which is 4 million pixels vs. the Optoma with its 8 million pixels delivered to the screen. You can clearly see many, many stars that are just not visible on the Epson.”
“You want the ultimate home theater system? Then you want the Optoma UHD65. This projector is currently the best on the market. It supports all of the latest standards including UHD and 4K, and Optoma’s advanced smoothing system makes your video look amazingly natural.”
“Of course, any 4K projector can display high levels of detail. But the UDH65 has a trick up it’s sleeve. It’s got a 1,200,000:1 contrast ratio. This means that the brightest whites are 1.2 million times brighter than the darkest darks.”
“This is truly a projector for the avid film buff, and we can’t recommend it enough.”
