I rent and my walls are cement with some sort of textured paint so smoothing out the wall and applying paint would probably not make my landlord very happy and I'm sure I would get fined quite a bit when I eventually move out. I did start a thread in the projector screen forum and would like to continue discussion there as I feel like I've contributed to highjacking this thread which is for the P1. I've read mixed results regarding paint. Not trying to claim that it isn't better, I've just read a lot of mixed opinions.

Optoma P1 4k Laser UST @ CES

I would be interested in seeing these results using a UST projector. Ideally a side-by-side comparison of the same image with a CLR screen and this paint compound on MDF. Don’t know if you have the resources or the time but if so please post them on the new screen discussion that was just opened. Unless it’s done using the Optoma P1 of course...

The wall has to be 100% flat for any UST otherwise you will see wavy lines when image pans horizontally so any screen would be better then wall and paint.

I still don't understand why there is a difference with the European version, that cost a lot to make two different production line, and I would like to know which components are different in the European version, maybe it's because of some regulation ?

I don't understand why there is still no release date for Europe, especially Germany. Optoma France seems to be the only one that's moving forward by releasing a price for France. Optoma Germany is still quiet, no price no date no hope. 😥

There is certainly production problem, there was late for USA and they produce few unit (they certainly send them all once they have produce the first batch rather than waiting to have more as they're was late), so this certainly impact the European release too.

Is there a confirmed physical/hardware difference? I’m thinking it might just be that Europe could have different standards for measuring brightness/contrast?
@Tuan where are you? We need you!



P.S. does Tapatalk not support GIF’s anymore?

There was no production problem. We were just verifying firmware and awaiting certifications.

I have no idea what the difference for EMEA is, I only know what I work on for the US. However, I believe EMEA prices typically include VAT, which US does not.

@solal- I agree, it's a bit chaotic releasing the same projector with enhanced features at same price in €..and later in time. I hope it won't turn into another battle to get few units across EU too

Optoma France said ( https://twitter.com/OptomaFrance/sta...56514634686464 ) :

"UHZ65UST and P1 are not the same products : contrast, lumens, are for exemple differents (3500 lumens, and 2 500 000:1 contrast ratio)



But I also doubt about this.

Also, it seems there is no 'shop' on the optoma '.com' website, on the french website we can order directly to optoma, may be it will be the best things to do when the projector will be released so we will not have to wait than third party receive it.

Has anyone received their P1 that also has a Logitech Harmony? Any chance to confirm that the remote in IR mode can program a Harmony Hub?

I am curious about this too. I know it might be a bit before Logitech adds it to its compatibility list. From what I understand it previous in our discussion is that you can deactivate the Bluetooth remote functionality to use IR. But this means you have to place the P1 in eco mode. I'm sure this will alter the Lumen output and other capabilities. Has anyone been able to link their Harmony Hub to more than one Bluetooth device? Along with the P1 once set up I also have an Nvidia Shield I was hoping to still use which is operated by bluetooth as well. So just unsure if it can link and operate both the P1 and another Bluetooth device like on Nvidia Shield or even PS4 at the same time.

Anyone aware whether this is going to be available anytime anywhere in Asia? Can we expect any price difference (drop) if bought, or have it shipped from somewhere like from China/Taiwan/Singapore/Malaysia?

So you left a review before you got the projector?

Here are some pics of what's in the box. Optoma is including a distance guide that you can attach to the projector to detail spacing from screen required for size of screen desired.

I received confirmation that the P1 can receive IR signals regardless of mode so no issues here.

I just plugged in the projector.couple of questions:
1. Using an alr screen with 0.8 gain with mild ambient light. Image doesnt look as bright as i was expecting it to be. Can anyone share what settings are you using to get the best output from the projector.
2. Had some difficulty with adjusting the screen. Wht the height of ur table and screen height? I have a 100” screen.

Really appreciate the inputs.

Screen height times .24. I believe for 100-in screen it's 11 and 1/2 in from the surface the projector is sitting on to the bottom of the image. The adjustable feet give you about 1 in of wiggle room
