Optoma has announced three new 4K & HDR-compatible 1080p projectors, including two models that sport bright laser light sources & support 3D.

The GT1090HDR ($1399) offer 4200 lumens output and a short throw ratio of 0.5:1 so you can set it up on a coffee table and get a big picture. The laser light sources good for 30,000 hours in Eco mode. This model includes HDMI 2.0 input as well as VGA.

With Optoma's HZ39HDR ($1199) you get essentially the same feature set as the GT1090HDR in a traditional long-throw projector featuring a 1.3X optical zoom lens. This projector advertises 4000 lumens output and covers the rec.709 gamut.

Gamers will enjoy support for 1080p at 120 Hz with 8ms input lag when a forthcoming firmware update rolls out (Q2 2020).
